2019 track days?

Post by McTrucky » Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:07 am

Hi all,

I did about 7 or 8 trackdays in 2018. And think I bumped into another forum member just the once, and he wasn't even in a beemer that day.

So very early days, but next year am planning to do a similar number, and possibly a Euro trackday (Spa?, Folembray?, Croix?...) as a short break with my good lady; and I got to thinking it might be good to coordinate with one or two others on this.

Not sure how to go about this beyond what I did this year and simply post here when I book, or is there a better way?

I am not looking to organise a "mad as a box of frogs lads' fest", but having some company could be nice.

Cracking idea mate, on other forums we’ve maintained a list of dates and attendees in the first post of a similar thread so folk can see who’s out and when. :thumbs:

I intend to do Blyton, Cadwell, Donington and Snetterton in mine in the next 6 months, timing dependant upon diary and getting the car sorted.

I have an MX5 track car so tend to do more in that, will post up dates with the caveat that I’ll be hairdressing on those days! :lol:

I usually book half a dozen dates with opentrack on Boxing Day as they have a sale. This is on top of a lads ring trip every year in late April. I loiter south so Brands Bedford Silverstone are my normal haunts.

But I’d like to do a spa and a ring track day - a double header would be ace. Have another few chaps I could convince I’m sure.

I managed a donington evening last year and not much else. Keen to get back on the scene and currently looking at the bookatrack adverts for Spa in March with a keen eye. I'd love to do a few more days in 2019 so make sure you post on here if you're thinking about doing one.

Opentrack have a March Spa date which is cheap today at £215.

I suspect it’s sold out then as it was there this morning. There is a circuit days day the following day which sold out in two working days last week so maybe some people did a double header. At £215 it was cheap; as long as it doesn’t snow

So I booked Goodwood (4/2); Silverstone gp (17/2); Brands gp (13/9) so far. All with opentrack.

Now having a look at javelin and MSV to get the quota up.

I usually manage 5-6 a year and a ring trip all being well in the mini 😀
