What exactly is a track day?

    Track days are about just you, your car and the track, driving with like-minded enthusiasts, all in the same direction and using the full width of the road on a challenging length of twisty tarmac.
    They are an opportunity to take your car away from the public road, and drive your MG quickly and in the relative safety of a racing circuit or airfield track. There are no speed cameras or hidden police officers.

    There are no caravan-induced traffic jams, and there is no oncoming traffic, cyclists or pedestrians to worry about.
    MGs on track members enjoy a good social repartee in the paddock between sessions and often, when travelling to more distant circuits, an enjoyable get together for meal and just a couple of drinks the evening before.

    Track days are in no way, shape or form, a competitive event. If you want to do this, get a motorsport licence, and compete in a speed trial or race championship! On a trackday, organisers take a predictably dim view of any participants obviously racing each other, or timing their laps.

    We enforce a strict rule of only overtaking on track only by consent between both drivers to minimise the risk of contact. Please see the FAQ below to see how this operates.
    Remember, this is a fun event! It's about driving quickly, but with due care and consideration for those around you. As the old MG motto goes: Safety Fast!
