Ultimate VAG trackday - Brands Hatch August bank holiday Saturday 25th
Righty then folks, another awesome summer event for us all to attend, at the fabulous Brands Hatch Circuit!
This has been organised and planned by Aaron, and the boys at Commrades of Vag, and if all goes to plan, it should be a massive event!
The idea: a massive VAG only trackday, members from various groups covering the whole VAG range of vehicles, Audi-sport.net, Secret Seat Society, Commrades of Vag, amongst others on the invite list.
Rather than your average trackday where you'll find yourself up against caterfield type things pretending it's a test day, nutters in massive turbo barges, and crazy kids in french hot hatches, this day is all about all things VAG, from your Leon Cupra R's to an RS6 to an A4 tdi estate, if it's VAG, it's welcome!
We have room for up to 60 cars, but we need 30 to make this happen, so as a start, we're looking for 10 cars from ASN, 10 cars from COV, and 10 cars from the SSS. I reckon we can do that easily, the more the better!
The venue: Brands Hatch - Postcode DA3 8NG
Brands Hatch Indy Circuit is a real favourite amongst trackday drivers. This relatively short circuit is surprisingly difficult to perfect with double apexes at both Druids and Clearways. The swoops and dips add to excitement culminating in Paddock Hill Bend often described as being like dropping off the edge of the world! It should be on the list of must-dos for every trackday driver in the country!
Open Pitlane - this Represents FAR better value for money than any other format, the format is as follows:
07:30 Signing On 08:30 Briefing 09:00 Track Time Begins 13:00 Lunch 14:00 Track Time Restarts 17:00 Track Time Ends
So that's a massive 7 hours of track time!
Numbers depending, the cost SHOULD be £202.50. Standard price for an MSV full day is £225 (pretty reasonable for Brands in mid Summer!), but if we can get 10 ASN members signed on we get a 10% discount.
This discount also applies to any extras you want, like heltmet hire, or driver training.
So, that's 7 hours of driving for £202.50, just £29 per hour! Pretty cheap when you compare it to a session at Castle combe, £45 for 15 minutes (£180 per hour - OUCH!)
So, to book, all you need to do, is phone or email Mark Lawrence at Club MSV.
You can call him on 0843 453 3000
You can e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Or you can just head on over to Event Details
The noise limit at the event will be at a reassuringly high 105dBa measured 1m from the exhaust at 4500rpm,
so high enough for even the loudest of cars, and all road cars are eligable to enter, so there really is no excuse!
I'm dead excited about this already, I booked today, and Mark was very helpful. I've not driven Brands before, but it looks amazing.
For now, MSV don't need to take any money from anyone, you just need to ring up Mark and register your interest, then, once we have the required 10 cars per club, discounts will be applied and Mark will contact you to sort out payment. It couldn't be more simple!
The more people we can get on board for this the better, lets make it an awesome day with a massive ASN turn out to show up the rest of the VAG scene!
EDIT: Because I'm not a tart, I forgot all about this bit:
For all those who don't want to go on track, but still fancy a great day out at an awesome venue, there will also be a show n shine contest held in the paddock during the day, as well as respresentatives on site from R-tech Power and LVS Racing to discuss all your tuning needs :)
