For the want of a better title...MazdaFest 2013
« on: May 17, 2012, 05:14:49 PM »
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

This sounds promising!
 
That £200pp is based on how many people attending?

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 ;)

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
