Seriously tempted to try and get hold of a RS for Anglesey, a track I've wanted to do for years.

Don't think they'll let me on with the Abarth to show you all up Tongue

Now seeing the prices listed for Anglesey it's sad to say I will not be attending any RSUK trackdays this year or maybe at all if this year is anything to go by.

Havin enjoyed all three full RSUK days last year with my newly purchased 182 I had looked forward to attending more with the group, but obviously with low attendance numbers and RSUK subsidising where possible it was not going to be a substainable model much longer but in light of the reduced programme this year and the prices listed (only have what I paid for Anglesey in Aug'16 as comparison and not RSUK) it may force the viscious circle to continue and further decline.

The RSUK days were a great introduction to the brand and enthusiasts of the marque but maybe I joined the bubble a little late!

Having put a fair bit of money to get my cars operational again (refurb g.box, new clutch, new front suspension, parts, bushings, liquids etc.) paying £100 extra for the experience isn't justifiable IMO. But business is business and I completely get that.

Enjoy the days folk, might even get over to spectate at Angelsey as the drive across is always pleasant :) .... maybe catch some of you on track elsewhere this year.

Cannot see the issue here tbh.

Cost of the RS trackday at Anglesey is comparable with others being advertised in May - https://www.trackdays.co.uk/calendar/cars/

Sure it is no cheaper but you will not save by going with anyone else so you might as well book this one.
By doing so you also help on the 'possible low attendance issue' you yourself have mentioned.

Truth is that it is always possible to find varying prices for TD's at a given circuit.
All TD companies pay the same for the hire of the track therefore the difference in price is the number of cars that will potentially be attending.
As the number of cars allowed on circuit remains a constant this, in my experience, means longer waits to get on track and potentially less track time.

Our days remain highly subsidised. Tracks are more expensive at the weekend and our price for a Saturday, open pitlane in May at Anglesey is much less expensive than any other operator

Don't disagree with any of the points you have made there Del and I get the irony in not attending fuels the decline.


But other than the positives you state of an RSUK TD (which again I agree made them really enjoyable) against the several over other trackday organisers being comparable to other prices at the same time of year just doesn't have the same draw when compared to last years noticable difference in price. And things like charging for garages (maybe this is out of RSUKs hands IDK) sours the deal a little to me.

We are all going to have a difference of opinion on things like this for what ever reason, but alas for me its a no go.


Anyway enjoy it chaps and I will continue to enjoy the clio on track sometime this year too.

Hi - I do want to make sure that we are charging the correct price. Can you point me in the direction of the prices for trackdays on Saturdays around this time of year at other circuits?

I understand that Jeremy and thanks for the response.

As with my response to Del, some things will differ in peoples resoning for doing something or not.


The planets haven't aligned for me this year it would seem.

Hi,

Both Bedford evenings that I went to last year, seemed very well attended.

It's disappointing that there are only two full days offered this year.

For me, with a standard road car, half a day and one tank of fuel, was perfect especially if you had non driving guests.

Just booked for Anglesey with ballast (aka the missus).. Look forward to seeing you there. Last time I was at Anglesey was 10 years ago in an S1 Elise and I recall it was an exciting track to drive.

Just a brief comment on Anglesey TD prices..... if you look at Bookatrack they're charging £240 for a Saturday this month. Porsche Club GB are charging £250 (£320 for non members) for a Saturday in May. Javelin are doing a Thursday in May for £129 (usually £169) but what Renaultsport UK is charging appears competitive.

It's a shame there are less days this year but no doubt it's a matter of demand and supply.

Thanks to Jeremy and team for continuing to organise these days.

Thanks to you Simon for confirming the competitive pricing. See you there.

Hi Jeremy, if we have to include the shortened track, can we do this in the morning then we can enjoy the faster flowing track in the afternoon?
Usually on Renault sport days there ain't many left around after 3pm so a good time for some good laps.

Thanks,
John.

Agree with John here. Longer track all day for me. The corkscrew seems to break up the flow.
