Silverstone track taster session and photoshoot - 21st July

Post by MR2Jay » 13/06/13 11:02

Sounding out an idea here guys :th:

Just had Silverstone Race Circuit on working with me to organise an event for you all.

On the 21st July, they have an open track taster day where we can book a breakfast club meet, get 30 minutes track time and tuition in our own cars and an open pit lane photo shoot for £39. They have 2 levels, novice first for 30 minutes, then intermediates for 30 minutes all held on the Grand Prix circuit.

They have 12 slots in each free so 12 novice and 12 intermediate on this date....

Once finished there, it's off to Turweston Aerodrome for another photo shoot then on for some lunch.

Who would be interested?

Wow that's tempting :)

Of course, if there's track time happening I'll have my "go" wheels on rather than my "show" wheels, which will be a pity for the photographs...

No... I'm thinking of video on track with an overlay of speedo, revs, boost and AFR gauges. Would be pretty darn cool if you ask me :th:

Don't think so as you need a 60 minute safety course first on each session. There is only a maximum of 15 cars on track for each session as well. Going to post up full details later once I have the full low down from Silverstone
