Peter and the moderators have kindly agreed to allow me to post this on here, thanks guys:thumbsup:
I am helping to organise a trackday at the Snetterton race circuit on February 28th next year. This will follow a very similar format to the day that was recently featured in Banzai magazine. The circuit is being hired on a private basis therefore as long as I sell enough slots, we will not have to contend with people who don't appreciate our cars and to the other extent the race boys who have turned up for cheap practice in their Radicals. Those that attended this years event (Nick MW, Incubus, Bono and Bubble to name a few) will hopefully endorse how successful the day was on that basis.

The format is simple. We run two groups in the morning with half hour intervals and then after lunch it's an open pitlane affair. We are capping attendance at 40 cars so with Snettertons circuit capacity being 30 cars at any one time, the amount of laps for everyone should be huge. There will be the normal facilities available too with garages, instructors and tuition available for anyone that requires it.

Now the crux of it, the prices

£135 per car (non-members of BigPower.co.uk)
£110 per car (members of BigPower.co.uk)
This price includes up to two drivers per car and passengers as well, so if you want to switch between driving and passenger laps throughout the day you can all experience each others cars with minimal fuss and expense.

For full details please click here
All attendees will be required to register as users of the site, whether a member or not. We require a £50 non-refundable deposit payable to Paul Gosnell, owner of UK Trackdays before you add your name to the list with the balance payable four weeks prior to the event (January 28th) Please use the payment page or by sending a cheque to me, made out to UK Trackdays, which I will forward on.

Payment page address Trackdays 2006 Calendar

Username in both cases is: bigpower
The password for non members is bdyo0684
The password for members is in the members section of BigPower.

If you have any queries at all please do not hesitate to contact me. The noise level is 105dB and you will be required to bring the credit card bit of your drivers license, crash hat (some available for hire) and a long sleeved top which in February at Snetterton is a bit of a given anyway :)

I should add that I have been asked to extend the discount to GTROC members too so that any that is a member of either site can now take part for £110 :)

I'd like to give this a bash Stuart but I cannot commit to it because of an unconfirmed itinery in the New Year. Will keep an eye on the thread though.

As Stuart said, I attended last February @ Snetterton and it was a really enjoyable, well run day:)

For those that haven't driven @ Snetterton before, it is one of the fastest circuits in the country and lets the Skyline really stretch its legs on the straight:smokin:

Surprised and a little disappointed with the uptake from this board to be honest. Any reasons/feedback so that I can consider this for the next event?

Stuart,

Sorry not sure why but there is a members-only event the week after which may explain some of the slow response. Being members only and being run by three clubs with a limiyted selection of cars tends to encourage people more than a any-for-any type event because of the very different styles required to drive a Skyline v Caterham 7 v Radical v GT3. Maybe the type of car next to the name would help?

I would love to keep this event clear of Caterhams, Radicals etc Nothing against them at all, just I've found that the days can 'flow' better with cars that have closer dynamics and driver attitudes.
