    We return to North Weald airfield again on Friday 2nd August 2013 for our last visit this season. This is not a track day but a Starter Experience - an event for you to have fun in your car, increase your driving skills, gain confidence in both your own and your car’s abilities and meet other like-minded MG owners. It is designed for absolute beginners or novice track day drivers who wish to gain confidence before venturing onto a race circuit. It allows you to explore your car’s handling in a safe environment and to gain confidence under the watchful eye of a performance driving instructor.

    Numbers are limited to just 23 cars and only one car is active on each exercise at a time, minimising any risk to car or driver. After a group introduction and explanation of the day ahead, we begin with the high-speed bend activity. This mimics the situation of suddenly arriving at a bend when you are going too fast, the idea being to get around it under control. Once everyone has made some progress with this the day moves on to two coned circuits providing an opportunity to try out your new found skills and explore the capabilities of your car. All of this is great fun, but of course is designed to give you the confidence to come away from the day with new skills and book your first track day. No experience is required. No helmets are required. Just you and your car. The cost for the day is £45 for MGCC Members (£55 for non-members) with a start time of 9am. The day is organised by Car Limits and the MGoT contact for anyone wanting any more information is Dave Pearce (DaveP@mgs-on-track.co.uk).

    The event guide has been sent out to all participants but I have also attached a copy here in case anyone has e-mail problems.

    We still have unsold places for the day so if anyone is interested in coming along at the last minute, drop me a mail at DaveP@mgs-on-track.co.uk or turn up on the day. Any level of experience is fine.

    Thanks for a great day out at North Weald 2nd August.

    Dave,

    Thanks for a brilliant day out. Brilliant fun, highly recommended. It was good to meet so many faces from the forums. Im sure my F is faster and more competent than I am ;-) I'll probably come along again and bring the wife so she can have a go! :)

    I Definitely feel im better prepared for trying a track day. :)

    Glad you had a good time Martin, I am sure we will be running the event next year if your wife fancies a go!

    Photos are now in the gallery. Vic Todman's pictures of the 'fast bend' during the monsoon are rather impressive. If anyone wants higher resolution copies of the photos I took, drop me an e-mail and I will send them to you. Reference the number at the bottom of the picture.

    Regards

    Dave
