    Hi everybody,
    I hope you’re looking forward to our North Weald Activity day on Friday 11th March. The day is very informal, unlike a track day, it is run for us by 1stLotus.com and all their instructors are performance driving instructors and racing drivers with a wealth of experience and skill.
    I need your help with one formality
    The only requirement before we begin is that Andy needs an emergency contact for both you and any 2nd driver or passenger you may bring. This is a name and telephone number to call in the event of an emergency, this must be somebody who is not with you on the day. To make this formality easier to cope with, it would be really helpful if you could email this name and number in advance.
    Arrival time
    Please aim to arrive no later than 08.30. The directions and map are on our website here http://www.mgs-on-track.com/venue/18/north_weald.htm then click on view map link, it is North Weald Basset on the map.
    How the day works
    The day starts with a single activity - the 90 degree bend. Darren likes to see everyone go through this, consequently, there will be a some queuing during the morning. But this does allow you to get to know each other and discuss what you are learning. Please ask Andy for advice and guidance at any time about driving technique or car handling. That’s what this day is all about – a chance for you to explore your car in safety.
    After lunch you will have the opportunity to put the skills you learn into practice. You can attempt two coned courses which offer different challenges, great fun and you should see your new confidence making a difference.
    Lunch
    We usually go to a local pub for lunch. There will be a convoy to help you find the way. Alternatively you are free to bring your own packed lunch should you wish.
    Refreshments and other facilities
    There is usually a tea/coffee van in attendance and portakabin style loos - nothing grand I'm afraid, but in good clean condition and we're responsible for keeping them that way!
    Finish time
    The day's fun has to end at 4pm precisely, the venue is an active aerodrome and industrial estate. The control tower guys get upset if we carry on beyond then and we get it in the neck! They will also get upset if we don't stick to the 20mph limit on the perimeter road so please oblige.
    Cancellations
    We understand that sometimes circumstances mean you may have to cancel, please contact me as soon as possible. We will do all we can to resell the space, but please look here for our refund policy. http://www.mgs-on-track.com/t&cs
    Finally
    I will be having breakfast at the Little Chef, Tylers Green, on the A414, postcode CM16 6RZ should any of you wish to join us. I am travelling up from Southampton and aim to arrive around 07.00hrs.
    Any questions - drop me a line
    Phone contacts for me
    Monday to Friday 07.00 – 17.00hrs 023 8024 5313
    Home all other times up to 21.00hrs only please 023 8084 4699
    Mobile 07707 461 067 but please note I do not have this on me usually as we are not allowed to carry them at my place of work.
    I look forward to meeting you all on the day, safe journey.
    Martin Charles,
    Chairman, MGoT
