Thanks guys, yes, the 90dB limit is a bit too low methinks, shame, as I like the idea of Thruxton :(

I\'ll talk to the chap at Bylton, thanks for the info - should please most people as it is pretty central...although the facilities are pretty limited...I am hoping to find somewhere that can support is with a restaurant at least...maybe a burger van or something could be the answer there???

I\'ll be discussing it with a couple of other circuits in the coming weeks, see what else gets offered.

This will be next year, late May / early June...plenty of time yet :)

Lol 115db here :) never going to get on lol,

I doubt you\'ll get into any of the track days :(

Yes, most tracks follow the same rules. They are allowed a certain number of days for "racing" - where noise is not an issue. Thruxton are allowed 12 days per year!!
 
The rest of the time they are allowed to have track days for "road cars" - and the levels vary by track - agreed, 90 is quite low...
 
 
 
I have a feeling I will need a more central track with a higher noise level...

what about exile? fduk? some of the european guys on no pistons?

 
If anyone on here is also on these forums could post up details, I\'d appreciate it :)
 
I will be creating a website with more info in due course - at this early stage I am just trying to see what sort of interest I get :)
 
 
actually, when I say "I will be creating a website"...I mean Karissa will, of course :evillaugh

Noise limit is 90dB at 0.5m 45 degrees
 
Cost of £200pp is based on 40+ attendees - I would like to think that across the clubs we would easily get that sort of figure.
If enough people are interested, ticket price would be reduced - this is not a profit making venture ;)

Hi all,

As you may or may not know, as well as skulking around here with my FB, I am events manager for my other club of choice, Club323F...and I am looking to organise a track day next year :)

However, it seemed that a normal "open pit lane" track day can still be quite expensive, and there is a mix of people and cars that attend (not always a bad thing of course ;) ) and I figured if we opened the event to other clubs, numbers would increase, and costs would decrease :)

I have been in contact with Thruxton, and if enough people are interested, I can book the entire track, complete with marshals, recovery, medical cover etc - and the resulting cost per car would be about the same as a standard open pit lane day...well, the same as a half day in Thruxton\'s case...£200
The event will be late May/early June, hopefully with some good weather!

£200 might seem like a lot, but it would be a full day - 9 til 5, all day track access (although they can only let 34 cars out at any one time) and I am trying to arrange for a few other things during the day, such as a Show & Shine competition etc
There would be an entry fee for people not going out on track, something like £15, if you just fancy coming along for the day out, and to watch :)

Currently I am looking at MRC, Club323F, RX7FB.com, various MX5 clubs, and the MPS club - basically, if it\'s a Mazda, it\'s in!



At the moment, I am gauging interest, getting a feel for numbers etc, so please let me know what you think, if you would like to attend, and any other comments ideas etc :)


cheers,
Marc

Sorry Lisa, I didn\'t have the details at hand - it\'s called the Cross ways or something, and they only had a handful of rooms available (it\'s only a small hotel)
 
I had a snout around the local area last year and found it ;)

That\'s extortionate for a premier inn - I stayed at the one up the road last year for £29!!!

This year I have booked in at a small place, a few miles north east of the track, double room is £55 including full English breakfast - so I would suggest looking around a bit before you book ;)

As previously mentioned...the MOT rules are changing in 2012, and HIDs fitted, with no self levelling and washers will fail the MOT ;)

You do not need a VAT number on an invoice - mine don\'t have one, the business does not turnover enough to require VAT registration ;)

There should be an invoice number though, otherwise how would they reference it?

You will need self levelling headlights and washers for the MOT as of 2012...but you can simply change back to bulbs at MOT time...

I have cheap ones (£40) from ebay, and they have been fine...other people I know have had all sorts of issues - failing ballasts and bulbs, flickering, whine from the radio - same old Chinese cheapo stuff really, the quality varies kit by kit, and seller by seller. From what I\'ve heard, keep away from "OMG cool car parts" - seems to be one of the worst...

They are a bit pants in your high beam, as they take a while to warm up, and don\'t like being flashed on and off ;)
