As per title 8 December 2013 From 8am, track live 9am

Looking to get another meet arranged guys and girls. Been a good six months since the last one so why not?

Bit of a difference this time, looking to actually piggy back off of an actual event for a change as opposed to the usual meeting in a car park.

Looking to book track time at the last hot hatch day at knock hill racing circuit before the turn of the year.

Will mean that folks that are up for it can attend to watch or participate, there are facilities, toilets, restaurant, spectating areas, a whole host of other track day cars.

I plan to participate, and encourage others to do so too!

The hot hatch format works in groups of cars split into track/ road categories. And then again into power bands

This event is the reverse direction of the track

Each session is ten minutes long and track is live from 9am

No i know there wont be much interest up here for track time, pricing is very good and a perfect way to get a taste for safe environment track time with your car

Even if no one wants to go on track, even just meeting up and getting some banter, photos, chat, videos etc, food a day out basically

Admission for adults is £10, passengers were normally £5, but last track day i attended, they charge my passenger £10 admission and then only £1 helmet hire


Anyway, like i say, something different good to get folks together just before xmas, who care is weather may be pants. man up

NOTE THE ADVANCE PRICES FOR TRACK TIME ARE BASED ON SEASON PASS. I PAID £61 LAST TIME IN ADVANCE

I'm a provisional yes (as stated on fb).

C'mon guys, managed 6 of us at the Paisley meet, let's beat that! Otherwise it'll be a bigger let down than Vinnys boost :lol:

My car has been in in the bodyshop for weeks n weeks now... N iv been told it will be ready for the end of November!!! So this could tie in quite nice.
Unfortunately I won't be taking it on track this year, as the paint will be too fresh to start flinging it about... But I will come up for a laugh n watch you guys go daft!! I will bring a helmet too n hope one of you's have a passenger seat!!!
