I'm up for this.

Clearly designed to get the best from the 35, with the rolling start. :chuckle:

Nice opportunity to give the 35 a blast too.

Anyone else?

Questions asked via PM from the R35 section so I'll post these for info below:

I am interested in coming but just want to understand more about the day.

Is it only high speed runs down the runway? How many goes do you think you get?

It's a timed 30-130 run on the main Tornado runway, starting as you accelerate through 30mph between a coned start section and Top speed is also recorded if you wish to accelerate through the 130 or have a dedicated top speed run coming on to the runway at higher speed (a GPS datalog system with a memory card is used to record your runs) It's a competition but how serious you get is up to you R35s would certainly be amongst the faster cars. Find out how yours compares?

Runs wise, you can have as many practice runs as you like, as you can come straight back round to the start. For timed runs though you may have to queue for a few minutes for the marshalls to get the GPS unit plugged in to your cigarette lighter with a fresh memory card and suckered on to the inside of your windscreen to record your timed runs.

Are there any other activities during the day? Do most people come for just a few hours (a few runs?)?

There is a compulsory safety briefing first thing, you can leave at any point during the day if you've had enought. I find I enjoy the friendly banter and seeing how the other cars get on from very highly tuned scoobies to supercars. so the day goes quickly.

There are plasma screens recording the latest results throughout the day, on the MLR hospitality unit. There are facilities for cofee snacks but no reason why you couldn't pop out for lunch if you wished. It's also quite an interesting place to be as it's a live RAF Tornado base and the marshalls are all RAF personnel giving there time for free for local charities. The drive up can be fun too dependent on who you hook up with on-route, some people will go the night before.

If interested can I register both my car (R35) and a friends car through here?

Yes, you just need to supply details for security clearance and pay in the club shop

Passengers / spectators are free, co-drivers are 65.00 per person

Does the fire extinguisher have to be 'fitted' or can it just be in the car?

In the car is fine, but maybe a cable tie round a door handle to ensure it's accessable would be good.

You may need to screw in your front towing eye or at least have it to hand in case of any probs on the runway.

The night befor..

Hi all,

So, having received my "rules and regs" e mail today i am slightly worried that starting at 7:30 with a 2 hour drive to get there, we may be slightly knackered on the day.

I was wondering if anyone was thinking of going down the night befor and having a couple of cold drinks and a meal at a hotel near-by?

If anyone has the same idea please let me know and if you want to meet up and have a beer discussing the impending fun..?

Nice thought - might be keen to do that if Ludders is testing at santa pod on the saturday otherwise Madden is going the night before I believe already booked in But we went up on the day last year and it was fine and plan to meet at Birchanger Services on the morning. stop for a beer on the way home would be good though.
