    track days for young driver

    I would like to a track day in the uk, ive looked and seen most tracks have a minimum age of 18, which i am, but would i have trouble trying to get insured for the day?

    I concur, most people don't have insurance. Just hope that you don't encounter something like this, though....





    I've done 25 or so track days and I've never had insurance.

    This was from Bedford in April and it was the first time I've ever seen 2 cars collide - a DB9 convertible and a 911 GT3 RS. Ouch.

    to be honest everyone on a trackday feels the same way unless they are d***s
    we had a caterham overtake at craners curves which is a no no but afterwards went to ask them why and it was a family so thought leave them to it.
    drive reasonably fast and let cars overtake when they are up your ass

    the clip doesn't seem fast but trust me it was quick enough

    I've been to a few trackdays myself, just give your car a quick once over, especially tyre pressures and bolts, and make sure you have decent working brakes!!
    Main thing is to just go out there and have fun, and not be a track day hero! If there's a quicker car out there, move over - Simples.
