    Donnington 4th November

    I'm looking to do a track day hopefully with a few lads off here at Donnington on the 4th November. Most of the information is on the link below. I think its reasonably priced at 105 and an extra 20 per passenger.

    Is anyone interested? Obviously you pay Donnington direct rather than me.

    Regards

    Good man - looks like its still an empty track. It was Dave B's idea originally. Looks like he has chickened out

I cant wait to get round a track but working on the house this year so cant really justify the expense at the mo...I was planning on going the following week just to watch & get an idea how it all works so to speak.???

    I'm undecided at present, right now I have a car that wouldn't pass scrutineering due to a massive oil leak...

    Not a bad idea. I'll bob over to the other side and see whether they would let us join

    Image?

    I'm more concerned for the safety of others TBH. If someone was on track in front of me leaking oil, and it caused me trouble, I'd knock his head off.

    I think its the turbo oil feed, and not the return, which is a shame as itmeans unbolting the turbo...

    Here is the linky. I'm sure Tris won't mind a few Audis as well - we already have a Mk5 Golf GTi in the group.
    http://www.seatcupra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=137881

    Currently 16 on the list, most people going in the intermediate group with a few going in beginners. Still plenty of space.

    The SeatCupra lot are really nice people for the most part, I met a couple last time I was at Donington, so it might be an idea just to piggyback their day.

    I havent had the car out since the work was done, so theres no way I'd go in an intermediate group with a car I dont know, so might be nice and empty for me if I can go.

    Right now an oil leak, lack of MOT, Insurance and Tax is the only thing stopping me making the &#163;105 payment for the track day!

    I'm now doing this the 25th instead.

    Turns out a load of people I know are organising the 25th as its the last event of the year so I'm going to do that one instead.

    3 weeks longer to save up and all that.

    Very nice!

    My mate invited me to a trackday in his AMG SLK, and he even paid the extra for me to drive his car! So I was launching the thing sideways out of every corner I could, it was pretty fun. I'm thinking of returning the favour in my S3.

    Course it's ok. I saw Tris from SC.net today at the WTCC @ Brands and he is happy for anything VAG to come along.

    The 10th November was chosen to replace an 'exclusive' VAG and French track day at Brands in December which we had been invited to but then asked not to book for because we wanted to book too many people in! They were concerned that there wasn't enough room for the rest of the VAG brand as SC.net had over 20 people interested.

    So if we can fill Donington with VAG group cars then great.

    Oops, that is a bit confusing! The original plan was to go on the 4th, but then Audi-Sport and SeatCupra teamed up together to go on Saturday 10th instead.

    It is free to spectate.

    That's cool, more time for me to arrange a day off, I should be able to pop over, it's around 40 miles away for me.

    OK, more the merrier. I think there are still some spaces if you fancy an outing on the track - &#163;105 for the day in advance or &#163;125 if paid on the day.

    Dont think I`ll make it on track, its more just to get out of the other halfs way for a bit...although once I get there if they do just an afternoon session I might get tempted, I dont think I`ll be there very early though, maybe not till about 11`ish... Do you know how many of the seat lads are going-is Tris or Stu about???

    If you are coming from Norwich, isn't it a bit of a trek Wes?

    It's around 150 miles to Norwich for me, and it's approx 50 miles the otherway for dinnington, so bit of a trek mate.
