Hi, everyone, i know thee is already a thread about track days and such but i'd thought i'd use this oportunity to make current a track day that is going to be coming up available to anyone who is interested ! ! !
I work at RAF Marham which is in east anglia about 15 miles south east of kings lynn, so east midlands for those who have never heard of it!
There is a track day coming up, which is held Bi-Anually, on the weekend after easter exact dates i can remember, but either way contact me later and i will be more informative i promise,
Because this event is for charity it is cheap! ! ! last one was £40 a day £70 for both days Sat & Sun. And was one of the few unrestricted db level ones in the country, how ever this year with marham having a new station commander i believe a db level of 105 db's is in place but this will not be sttrictly monitiored or controlled (and to be honest if you have a civic that exceeds this i'd be impressed!)
now as far as i know the only way to get an invite is on either/both the type R forum (if you are a member) or piston heads(again if you are a member) as i cant find (personally looking) an invite as a non member,
the track day is open to all vehicles of all types if you want to do 1 or 2 laps or 100 laps is up to you, dont go thinking you will be the fastest as this event is open to all sorts of cars, quite often there are lambo's, ferarri's, Evo's, 700+bhp toyoto supras, skyline gtR's e.t.c however it is a fun day and lets anyone of any level come along and mingle with people who like to put their cars out to the max, not all cars are wannabe supercars, there usually are loads of 205gti's, golfs, clio's etc that just come for the fun and still have a good time, and there is a chance to meet many new people who are car enthusiasts from all areas,
people who are definitely interested should try and sign up to either of the above mentioned forums and get on it, or if enough people reply with a definite YES TO THIS THREAD I WILL SEE WHAT I CAN DO ABOUT ADDING US AS A GROUP TO THE ENTRY, No Promises tho
Rules to the day are as i can remember,
YOU NEED A HELMET!!
(ANY MOTORCYCLE ONE WILL DO, driver and any passenger you bring, who sits in with you!)
Driver of the vehicle must be named and any passengers MUST be named too, AS YOU ARE COMING ON A MILITARY BASE ALL PEOPLE MUST HAVE A PASS, do not sign up and then bring someone as a guest that you have not arranged they will be turned away! ! !
Ultimately have fun!
Most of the Heavy weights have run out of fuel/tyres by lunch time so the track has less traffic and you can enjoy yourself more because of the reduction of traffic flying past at stupid speeds,
The track has over a 1 mile straight (down the main runway) for those wishing to see if they can push their top end and has some good technical bits and areas for drifting (car permitting) it is for beginners and advanced alike and everyone can get something out of the day,
For really keen thrashers is recommended you bring 4 wheels with fresh tyres in you boot, racing tyres are awesome as the main runway is seriously high grip tarmac, (for fighter jets) and there is a long 80 - 100mph bend leading on to it!
Please feel free to comment and post your interest, as i say ist is the weekend after easter, as far as i know 18th 19th april i think i will post exact dates (if different,(i doubt it!))if there is enough interest and i can arrange something for the civinfo forum, however look on the above mentioned forums as a member for now,
Hopefully this is a link to last years track day photos on piston heads(see if it works)
