Hi all.

A few people showed interest in this at the recent yorkshire meet/run, apologies for not posting it sooner.

I've entered myself onto what will be my first trackday at Elvington on the 17th
and just wondered if anybody else fancied it?

Theres quite a few 5's already entered, anybody off here?

Heres the details:

http://www.javelintrackdays.co.uk/trackday/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=109&Itemid=11

Still 6 places left if anyones interested?

Now to get the car ready, sooo much to do and buy....

How much did you pay?

It's says ?99 at the top and ?129 at the bottom.

Either way, if me and Indykid are there, jump in for some pax laps 1st if you want before you use your car - best way to learn.

Legend nice one pat that would be awesome
will be nice to have someone to chat to and hopefully pick up some tips from.

Sorry should have said, i booked through www.trackdays.co.uk as it was ?99 with them
I noticed the price difference between pages on javelins site aswell, with there only been 6 places left and trackdays.co.uk dont garuntee a place, it might be worth giving javelin a call, hopefully they'll ohnour the ?99 price shown on the site.

Have emailed them as used them a few times before.

Will probably be NA on the day.

After the briefing, there's some sighting laps where you follow everyone round slowly.

After the sighting laps (usually 3) park up and come and find me or Tom - one of us will take you out.

P.S. That's if it's ?99!

well if it's ?99, they fill a place and get ?20 for second driver. if it's ?129, the place goes unfilled.

will common sense prevail?

Booked with Trackdays - ?109 for me and Tom.

WTF are they playing at.

Either way - as above - come and find us after the sighting laps.

We'll hang on for you and give you a pax ride so you get an idea of what the crack is.

Excellent that will be a great help, cheers lads


Cant wait for this.
no probs. i remember my first track day. it was in bitsa at elvington.....and i was shitting myself

first go on a proper track was at croft and it pissed it down

it doesn't take long for the nerves to die down though. should be a cracking day and being in a 5, it doesn't matter if it rains.

BRING A WINDPROOF JACKET. elvington's a harsh place when you're there all day

We were hoping to go to this to check out the MP62 installation before going to Croft on 03.05.10 but we're not sure we'll have the intercooler completed in time. And if we do get it finished before 17.04.10 it looks as if Elvington will be fully booked.
I enjoy Elvington. Lots of space for run offs and spins and low probability of hitting anything (famous last words?). Bit harsh on the tyres though.
