    Croft track event..

    Hey all..

    Funny that a few of you started mentioning this, I was discussing it earlier with Chris..

    I suggested a track day for ASN, not an exclusive event, more of a group booking on a Croft trackday, they run one per month..

    I have worked at Croft for about 3 years so it wont be a problem sorting it out, so long as who ever would like to have there car booked on the day can commit to a date as the days get booked up fairly quickly..

    The days are either split up into sessions, 3 groups of cars rotated throughout the day, 3 sessions in the morning, 3 in the afternoon, 20 mins per session..

    or..

    Open pit lane, which is what it sounds like, basically take your car out on the track as and when you feel like it throughout the day with an hours break for lunch..

    Think it would be a good way to have some 'sensible' fun on the track, compare cars, chat etc etc..

    So!! Whos up for it??

    Im thinking of setting the date in September as im going to be pretty tied up until then (I want to be able to make it) plus it will give us all some time to get things planned..

    Any suggestions or questions just post up and we can try and get some kind of list going with who would like to attend

    Jonny

    UPDATE:

    Hey

    After the trip to Croft today I had a few discussions with the guys fro Circuit days and they have confirmed to me that they would be up for an AUDI-SPORT.NET day

    http://www.circuit-days.co.uk/event_...=&event_id=168

    8th October
    Open Pit lane format (1 hours lunch from 12)
    Price TBC (149 non discounted but I think I will be able to negotiate a decent discount, ill confirm the price ASAP)

    Sorry for the delay on getting this info but hopefully now we can get some confirmed cars on the day and have some fun!!

    I'm up for a bit of this...
    September could be awkward for me...I'm offshore for 2 week in the middle.
    Early, or later on and I'd be fine.

    Either open pit lane or groups...not fussed for me. I'm happy with either.

    I can confirm once proposed dates are available.

    I'd better get my leaky shocks sorted by then.

    It'd be good to tag it onto the back of a 'Northern Meet', or just a general ASN get-together. Just make sure there's a good burger van there for glen

    Good work - didn't realise you worked there jonny!
    Do you help out with the driving experiences????

    Count me in.
    Can I be cheeky and throw in a few dates when I can't do it too??
    Can't do the weekend of September the 6th.
    I think it's the British Superbikes on the weekend of the 13th/14th September.

    How about weekend of the 20th? Ess Three - would you be back on terra ferma then?
    Would it be just open to as.net? I have a mate with an R32 from tyresmoke who i'm pretty sure would be interested too. Might even know someone with an R8 who would come along.

    I think this will be a really good day!

    Yup...I get home the Wednesday before (17th).
    The only possible stumbling block being I'll be off the back of two weeks of nights...but should be OK.

    Oooo, this sounds interesting..... Did something similar years back at Donnington in an 200 horse Fiesta Turbo. Thought I was doing well till I was passed (at great speed) by a transit van with cossie running gear....
    Will we need skid lids?

    Yes, if you dont have your own then the circuit can supply them for free, think its a 10 deposit which is refunded on return of the helmet..

    Thanks Jamie for the list, I have copied it into first post and we can keep track of it from there..

    Ill get more info on the date tomorrow, if anyone else is interested and would like to be added to the list then post saying so and ill pop your name on..

    I'm interested as I haven't done Croft yet and want to. Only thing is I'll be in the Ibiza rather than the S3.
