With 4 hours of live ‘on track’ action demos and 5 hours of public track time the event is full with non-stop track action that keeps everyone's eyes glued to the circuit. A variety of motorsport and Performance cars perform demonstrations of Drifting, Time Attack, Rallycross, Group B & Group A Rallycars, Circuit Racing, Oval Racing and High Powered sprint cars making it a fun day for all the family.

When you need a break from the adrenalin filled demonstrations you can take a walk around the paddock and view the fantastic display of enthusiasts cars who come from all corners of the country some individually, but many from some of the longest standing and highest repected car clubs around.

A ‘Best Car Club’ Trophy is presented to the best presented and turned out car/owners club.


The GTROC will be there again as we have been now from when these events first began a few years back. As per usual all the usual club & event rules will apply & just to warn you for those who went last year that security & the marshals on track will be a lot stricter after a few idiots last year that were dealt with. Public track time is available which can either be pre-booked in advance directly with them or you can do it on the day as well. However you will need to take both parts of your 'full' UK driving licence with you & either rent or take an appropriate crash helmet with you. Prices for this year still remain competitively low which is good to see despite the current financial climate :


CAR & DRIVER - £7.00 each.

PASSENGER (Pay on gate) - £15.00 each.


If your taking passengers with you these tickets can be paid for on arrival at the gate in cash. Tickets are now in the club shop so you can book early & guarantee your place on the club stand. For those going whilst the GTROC Media Unit will not be there, we do have our massive 'Event Shelters' which usually serve the superb purpose of stopping sunburn! The last few years at this event has been to quote the phrase 'SCORCHIO' :chuckle: People on the club stand will also be able to benefit from tea & coffee all day as well help keep the costs down. We may even do a BBQ yet ... more on this later!




In terms of demonstrations then some of the TIME ATTACK boys & girls are usually there along with drift demos from the drivers of the BRITISH DRIFT CHAMPIONSHIPS & the JDM ALLSTARS. However as more information becomes available I will post it on this thread, so for now put your names below & get your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment :thumbsup:

Over the past few years this event has also doubled up for May's GTROC KENT MEET as well, so expect to see your lovely Kent Rep's there too :p

If you fancy giving your Skyline or GTR an outing on the track at this event then you can either book on the day or in advance. Sessions are in groups of fifteen minutes & divided up to the level of experience you have. So don't put experienced if your a novice otherwise your putting yourself as well as others in danger. If you book early are discounted to £15.00 instead of the on the day price of £20.00.

You will need to bring the usual things with you such as both parts of your full UK driving licence & a helmet. They do have a limited supply of helmets you can hire which is usually about another £10.00. For those of you who wish to book in advance then the link to the form is below, don't forget to add your on the GTROC stand as well :thumbsup:

Not far off now ladies & gents & a bargin day out for the price for what's on offer for the whole day. Don't forget we supply members with free tea & coffee & if enough of you come along we'll also do some breakfast as well to help beat that credit crunch vs. what the caterers there usually charge.

Get your names down fast & once the new club shop is up & running you'll be able to purchase your tickets as well. There will be an RSVP point as well for this event on the morning details of which I'll post shortly.

Superb John, thank you :thumbsup:


Just an update for everyone that I.A Motorsport have confirmed they will be returning again this year, so if you fancy seeing what your Skyline is running BHP wise then this can be arranged. Unfortunately at present they can only do it in 2WD so for all you GTR owners ... pull a fuse :chuckle:

The organisers are announcing a week before the event something special that has never been done before in the UK show scene, so we'll wait for news on that.

There will also be two special ex-touring car championship winning cars from the 80's at the event which are currently under wraps, apparently both have corgi models of them though ???

Don't forget that local hotels are doing discounts if you want to stay nearby the night before to break your journey :thumbsup:

Ah pics of my car in happier times. Well due it being hit TWICE in a week it is not now in a show worthy state and my confidence in other drivers is even less healthy, therefore I'm afraid I probably won't be able to make it this time around:mad:

You'll only get one ticket as passengers pay on the gate, just noticed that wasn't clear in the first post so edited that but is correct in the shop. We'll have to sort a refund for you on the passenger ticket :thumbsup:
