Track Day at National

Post by bks974c » Wed Apr 30, 2014 8:59 pm

Seeing as their is no trackday action at this years National I've had a look at whats on in the area around the dates of the National and have come up with the following.

Wed 30st July Full Day Blyton Park £109
Thur 31st July Full Day Rockingham £215
Thur 31st July Evening Donington Park £129
Fri 1st Aug Full Day Donington Park £295
Fri 1st Aug Evening Donington Park £145
Mon 4th Aug Full Day Blyton Park £109
Tue 5th Aug Evening Cadwell Park £69

If anyone knows of any others please post here.

These are not Imp Club events but organised track days open to anyone but obviously if we get a few Imps together it will be more fun.
Rockingham is 30 miles from Huntingdon Caldwell Park is 80 miles.

I'm keen to do Caldwell Park as its always looked to be an interesting circuit, so plan on doing that on the way home and Blyton Park on the way down but flexible around any of the other events if we can get some people together but will need to book soon if we want to guarantee places.

Just a thought, Bedford Autodrome is only 20 miles from Huntingdon and nothing is shown on their website calendar for the national dates.

Unfortunately I can only attend the National on the Sunday and Monday due to family holiday plans, so would probably miss out on the fun.

Maybe worth someone giving them a call to see if they can do something for the club?

Having organised last years track night at Knockhill it requires a lot of work and getting the commitment from members to enter was very difficult - we were very close to losing money until I cajoled local members to enter at the last minute and we broke even. Tagging onto the back of an organised event seems the best option and I want to avoid clashing with the organisers plans.

Going to book Travelodge for Tuesday night and do the Full day at Blyton Park on Wed 30th July

Plus accomodation for the Monday night after the National and do the track evening at Caldwell Park on Tue 4th August before returning home.

Happy to have anyone join me or pop along to watch.

Trackdays and accomodation all booked, got a set of used A048'd for the Clan as they won't let you run slicks without a roll cage.

Also want to baffle the sump as Blyton Park is anticlockwise.
