***TRACKDAY, Snetterton 300, Sat 25th Feb***
« on: February 04, 2017, 12:28:05 PM »
Great to get the trackday season off to a "hot start"  ;) with a trackday at Snetterton on SATURDAY, 25th February.

This is a full day with Javelin Trackdays, Open Pit Lane format, on the full "300" circuit, for just £139. This is the public price, but if you are a FULL (paid up) MRC Member then click on THIS LINK for a discount code to save you an immediate 5%, plus an additional 5% in "Rewards Points". Please do not share this code with others else the code will be withdrawn.

To book a place, use THIS LINK to take you to the Javelin booking page.

Noise regs for the day are "standard" trackday limits; 105dBA static test and 92dBA drive-by.

The good news is that Clive has booked a place to drive his newly fettled RX-8 race car for a run out at this event, prior to the race season getting into full swing.

I'll be there for the start of proceedings up to lunchtime. Sadly, I have another event in the afternoon I have to get back home for, plus I doubt my car will be ready to take out on track after it's engine rebuild (currently underway) .

So, book a place on track, or simply come along to chat with other rotary enthusiasts (entry is free). There may even be an opportunity for some passengers rides - but not in Clive's car unfortunately, as he'll have the car in race configuration  :)

Here's Clive's car on a test run at Brands Hatch in December 2016;

And for anyone unfamiliar with the Snetterton 300 circuit, here is a view from my RX-8:

List Time:
  • Clive - track booked
  • Casey - spectating (am)
  • lennycarloff - track booked
  • Pukka - track booked
  • Bucko - track booked
  • Harrizone/Rote8 - track booked

If you are planning to come along to drive on track, or simply to come along to share the day with others, please post up below and I'll keep the list updated.

Also, if you have any questions about the day then post up here and I'll do my best to answer.

Have you booked this trackday on 25th February, or did you mean the TARC Asia Challenge on 25th March, or both??

Excellent Phil  :)

I'll see you at Snetterton later this month then. I'm also hoping to get along to the Asia Challenge races at Snetterton in March.

How much would it be to come along and watch you guys? Snetterton is a favourite on the old racing games but I won't be driving it till my FD is up to it. But I'd love to come see what it's all about still new to the forums

Be great to see you and there's no admission charge, just drive around to the pit area and come and find us.  8)

Looking forward to seeing everyone at Snetterton on Saturday. I'll be there until lunchtime, then I have to leave to go with Gwyn and my son to see a  critical Colchester United home game  :)

Sorry you can't join us Chris, but hoping the weather in Jo-burg is a little warmer  8)

I have emailed Javelin with a request to "block together" all the garages booked by the people I know with a rotary connection. Might make catching up between track stints a little easier, if Javelin are able to oblige (they usually do).

Sadly, as some of you may know, Rote8/Harrizone (Ray) has had to pull out due a serious health issue  :(
