From what I gather, the track time at car shows appear to be a free for all for idiots to floor their cars with no idea how to control them.

Have you ever seen footage of the "Action Days" at Castle Combe? Genuinely frightening stuff!

People on trackdays are generally well behaved. You get the odd idiot, but it's pretty easy to avoid them.

This is why I was so eagerly looking forward to it. Less cars and cars with similar power band. I only did 3 laps in a Ferrari 430 once so being quieter really would have helped. Oh well, hopefully the French Car Show trackday won't be too busy next year. I wanted to go this year but I've had a bit of football fever..

Did Goodwood a few years ago, it was restricted to 8 cars at a time and really good, no problems with other cars, fliipin fast track that one.

25th passed as there were issues with dates I've only just been made aware of.

Looking like just the one date this year - Rockingham 1st October.

I'll post a thread with sign up instructions/ pricing/ link once they are all set up this week.

Thanks all for bearing with.

I’ll be the one to say it.
Well done Luke!
Can’t have been easy filling the shoes of Jeremy on this and the general upheaval of an important staff member had on the running of this forum and the organisation of these track days.

From what I know Goodwood restrict to 12 cars on track. Did my first track day there a couple of years ago at an Origine RS meeting, Alpine and Renaultsport owners club. Great track bunt Goodwood is very expensive these days from what I understand, because it’s Goodwood and all that.

Yes, well done Luke for getting one sorted for this year. I'll be booking when you've got it finalised.

I wasn’t a fan of Rockingham before I went there and drove the track, really enjoyed it though.

Cheers Luke, good effort.

The moment of truth.
After all the barracking on here it will be interesting to see what the headcount is on the day.

I've driven Rockingham a few times and found it was not half as enjoyable in the wet (I had a bit of a moment in our Trophy-R on the swooped banking) as it is in the dry.

Lets pray for good weather because it is a good circuit with good facilities & as you all know, Renault Sport track days are amongst the best, so will certainly be worth it :)
