    Hmmm, brands is 20 mins from me. Wouldnt be running the S3 on track but tempted to pop along for a look around.

    Would take my M3 on track though if it was allowed!

    I'm also happy to take passengers out and will bring along my spare helmet so you don't need to hire one. As Prawn says, you may have to pay a few quid for a wrist band but it's worth it if you've never been on track before.

    The Cordy won't be as fast as Prawn's A3 but you'll still have a fun experience.

    Good news Aaron!
    Does that mean they may also take pics of cars that ain't on track too? :whistle2:

    In all seriousness, there will definitely be some epic track shots that day!

    Hey everyone...finally back in the office! Hope you all had a nice long weekend.

    Update on the numbers: COV - 8, ASN - 6, SSS - 3

    I need to start taking some extra bookings so I can make up the groups of ten and put the payments through with the discounts. I'm around until 5.00pm today, so just give me a call on 0843 453 3000. Remember to let me know if you want any additional drivers/passengers/instructor sessions.

    Additional passengers are just £10, but as mentioned you won't need to pay this if you have already paid to be a driver.

    Just a reminder...The Ultimate VAG Trackday is suitable for drivers of all skill and confidence levels. Being an Open Pit Lane, there will be a range of VW/Audi Group cars on track but with one-to-one Instructor sessions and extra safety briefings available on the day, you'll have plenty of opportunities to get up to speed!

    Question for those who do trackday on a regular basis. As this is my second,but first in my car,how do you know when your oil temps is too high?also, how many laps do people do at a time.I would have thought constant laps wouldn't be good for a road car?correct me if I'm wrong

    Don't worry Marty, you'll probably cook your brakes before you cook your oil ! :D

    On a serious note though, I imagine after 15 minutes both you, and the car will probably need a rest.

    Mark - can I double check it's free for show attendees who just want to watch?

    I've put a post up on SeatCupra.net and it's getting some interest.

    yes, been many a times before. its free to watch track days and practice days on events such as super bikes, touring cars etc

    theres a barrier but they let you though, of course you cant get on track with out a pass any way so they know theres no chance of you sneeking in, you drive down behind the grand stands then past the paddock shop. then do a sharp right then go under the track though a tunnel, (which is awsome for sound btw lol) then you appear up behind the garages/paddocks so your on the fences of cooper straight between graham hill and surtees.
    but last time i was there on a track day, as long as the pits are free of cars, and your over 18, you can stand on the pit wall and belive me when theres some big turbo'd cars going full speed full throttle past there its quite amazing! and back to cooper straight its cool to see people passing etc up to surtees and up round mclaren corner
