Discussion in 'North Weald - 15th February' started by Dave, Jan 13, 2008.
For more info please see the event page.
I am quite keen to sign up for this but I have never done anything like it before and haven't been driving very long. Can you tell me more about what happens?
Im also keen on this. I want to do a trackday soon, but this seems like a good starting point.
Ive been drivig for 4 years and have done a Lotus Elise experience day at Rockingham. Does this still male me eligable?!
To save my poor typing fingers, do you want to give me a call and I'll explain what happens. 07740 582830.
Yes, you'd be eligible, having not done a track day with us before.
I'm very interested but need to check my diary timorrow as i left it at work! Can I confirm Monday night? Have't driven a track day before and would like to try it.
No problem Fil - I doubt all 23 places will go before tomorrow. Bookings can only be made through the website.
Thanks for that. will book tomorrow night if I'm free.
Hope the weather holds up and all you Newbies have a great day ..
We will look out for you as we go around the M25 on our way to Bedford ...
Hoping to see you all on a trackday soon ..
I'd just like to say a massive thank you to all the guys for organising such a fantastic event
Sorry i can't remember all the names but thanks to you all esp Andy for the great advice and tips
I had a real blast of a day as i'm sure everyone else did too, esp on the top circuit
The best thing about the whole day and i guess the main aim of the day was the massive amount of learning what the car is actually capable of doing and the limitations of the car, to actually do all the things we did and to even try nos out in a controlled environment properly was fantastic.
If anybody is thinking of or wondering what these days are about, please go and do it, you won't be dissapointed
I liked the way it was pretty much left to your own devices to learn as much as you want to learn and push as much as you want to push and learn at your own speed as and when you feel like it, personally i couldn't stay off the track i loved it that much lol
Had a great day guys, I know it says beginners but if there's ever another activity day please let me know cos i'll be there before anyone else
Well worth the 3 and 1/2 - 4 hour trip down without any doubt. and it's certainly made me want to do a full track day and i feel pretty confident now about doing a full track day..
Steve (Baracus) (Red TF 160 & nos) cheers
p.s. Just going putting the tyre writing back on my tyres
I can only echo the above post, I had an absolutely fantastic time and woud do it every day if I could!
Thanks specially to Dave, Tim & Andy for their effort in making the day run incredibly smoothly and for standing round with stop watches and radar guns all day
I'm going to upload my pics from the day in a minute - has anyone else got any? I didn't get that many I'm afraid
Another thank you
Not much more that I can add to the above two comments except to say a big thank you for all your hard work, a fantastic day was had by all! Oh and roll on Silverstone
I've uploaded my videos from this as well now, but afraid I only managed to get a few
The last of my videos are uploaded now:

Interesting user name, dontuthink!
Welcome to MGoT, there is only one place left on next February's activity day so I would book it quickly if you want in on that one. However there should be a second one around July / August time. Look forward to meeting you there.
can i put name down on resevse list for north wearld
many thanks stuart wilson
Apologies for the late reply, but I've been offline over Xmas. I'll add you in as first reserve for North Weald. Can you email me a suitable contact number to firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can reach you if something comes up.
This looks like a fantastic oppertunity for any newbies to build confidence and see what track time in your own car is all about, at a low price to.
I wanted to start track days years ago but didnt have the confidence to go ahead until I took the jump last year, I wish I had gone on one of these years ago. I would be there myself (only done 2 track days so far) but am on a track day the day before.
MG on track should get credit for it to because I dont think any other club do it. So if you your a MG / Rover newby get booked up, it only costs the same as 30 minutes karting.
