    Is there any progress/chance that we may get a session in this year, my understanding is that the track will be okay by August:confused: Mike noisey red tf

    Hi Mike,

    My understanding is that there is still work to do and then it has to receive its MSA licence to hold motor sport events. Once this is all confirmed and in place then I think we would look to explore the possibility of getting a day sorted for this year.

    But it does depend on the committee having the time to organise something at fairly short, not always an easy thing for us to achieve.

    Hi Gary,
    We are keeping an eye on the situation, however I doubt we will get a day in this year. But we are looking at a possible extra date later this year at another old favourite we haven't done this year.

    Airfields :- Not always a good place as they tend to have (old) concrete runways and concrete chipings. Joined a Seat day at Bruntingthorpe and had to have MG resprayed and a new screen!! :mad:

    That's exactly why MGoT does not use airfields for our events.

    I hope that you enjoyed it never the less.

    I'm not sure if it was an airfield, but Gary is refering to Bedford Autodrome I think.

    Wasn't Silverstone an airfield :confused: , the National straight is one of the old runways, but of course resurfaced.

    On the subject of an extra day this year, we have investigated it, but the options open to us were not viable.
