    2022 Track Days

    Hi All! Even though Covid 19 (19! ) is still in full swing, track days have been back to normal since spring, apart from becoming seemingly more and more expensive. It was good to see many of you on track this year (although we are still to beat 12 GT86s we had at Bedford 2 yrs ago) and lets not mention small accidents that might have happened at Brands... I even managed to reach my "target" of 10 track days despite 3 cancellations earlier in the year. I hope 2022 will be even more fun - 1st track days for some/ European trips (Spa!) for others... TDO's have started releasing their 2022 calendars (or at least first 3-4 months) and for those who can plan in advance there are some good discounts to be had. (May be @will300 can put again comprehensive spreadsheet summary if we all ask him nicely :)) TDOs Calendars We will keep this page updated to provide links to latest dates and offers from main TDOs: Javelin Trackdays Release their dates until end of April 22: Upcoming Trackdays (javelintrackdays.co.uk) Sale going on now, with some attractive winter track (snow drift?) days, Bedford for £89 anyone? MSVT Provisional dates released (FB), but cant book yet officially on their website. 2022 Dates (msvtrackdays.com) As last couple years currently have an offer of £600 track day credit for £500. (I still have unused credit left from last year) Circuit Days Dates released until July 22, discounts available before 1/1/22. Circuit Days - Schedule (circuit-days.co.uk) Some of us still have unused credit from 2021, so we'll aim to organize "club" track days with them - see some suggestions below. If you guys select couple days I will organize "club" day(s). Opentrack Have not released their dates yet, expect shortly View Dates / Book Now | OpenTrack Usually have good Boxing Day sale for forthcoming dates. And OP is probably the easier to cancel (up to 1 day prior) with automatic credit to re-use. Also... Mazda on Track Race Track Days, Circuit Days and Driving Experience Days (mazdaontrack.co.uk) Lotus on Track Events - Book a track day or browse Lotus on Track's track day calendar (lotus-on-track.com) Motorsport Events Track days - Motorsport Events (motorsport-events.com) Planning Track Days Q1 is usually good time, weather permitting, to get some cheap track days, including decent weekend options for those who may not be able to take a day-off during the week. Bedford Bedford seem to be the most popular venue for club track days (and great for novices or those who would like to try on the safest UK track). Also last weekend in November was bloody cold with some light snow coming down January, February week-day dates would be <£100 (with early discount), with weekend dates <£150 (Bedford weekend dates are getting popular and more expensive) Donington Donington Park is another popular option, particularly as it can be reached from both south and north of the country (within 2.5hrs from many of regular club track day goers). Good options, including weekends, should be available in Q1 as well. Winter track days can be <£150 even for GP configuration (with Circuitdays on Sunday, Jan 30th anyone?), although they'll get progressively more expensive once it gets warmer/ less likely to rain. Thruxton Thruxton was not particularly popular couple years ago, but its such a fast and fun circuit more and more started attending it. With reasonably cheap (and more consistent though the year) pricing, I think we are planning to be there on Friday, May 13th (Circuit Days - Thruxton (circuit-days.co.uk)) Brands Indy circuit is always fun, GP is just epic (just ask Adam...), we'll definitely be going it again. I am planning to spend some credit on Brands GP track day provided its on sale. Silverstone unfortunately stopped doing TDs with 3rd party TDOs, hopefully they'll continue with their own Feel free to provide comments and suggest your preferences. If we have enough interest, I'll try to ask for some group discount or a free garage. Look forward seeing you on track in 2022!

    ?? Next Club Meet Up & Japfest 2022 ??

    Hi Rich We are doing "club" track day on November 27th at Bedford (Javelin). Probably will do at least another get together later this year, watch the calendar and FB page. 2022 event dates are not yet released, but we'll definitely be going to quite a few- Japfest, Tunerfest, Simply Japanese, Go Japan, etc! Hope to see you soon! Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  6. Trackday - Bedford GT - Saturday, November 27th £149 (Javelin) Bedford Autodrome GT Trackday (javelintrackdays.co.uk) Late November/ early December "club" track days have been popular last couple years with a number of club members selecting this to be their 1st every track day in GT86. We have selected a weekend date again, hopefully many of you would be able to attend - it can be wet and cold, but lots of fun guaranteed! There is nowhere else in the world quite like Bedford Autodrome. The venue has been purpose-built for speed and space. Bedford of the safest circuit in the UK, with lots of run off (mainly grass, not gravel pits!). Everyone is welcome. Not promising muffins this time :), but should have tea and biscuits to keep us warm. Book directly with Javelin using the link above. No club discount this time, but you can use Javelin points (or leftover credits as some of us still have it). Noise limit 101db static/ 87.5db drive-by. Check yours in advance to avoid disappointment. Car Track Days | MSVT (msvtrackdays.com) Let me know who's attending to keep track. Hope to see you there for some pre-festive season track fun!

    Please find attached your club label. Please ensure that you print this label and display it in the windscreen upon entry to the event, this ensures that all members wishing to park within our club area are directed to the correct parking location by our stewards. Organizers do ask that all individuals have purchased their tickets on an individual basis in advance via the website, as no tickets will be sold on the day of the event. This can be done on the website here until 2pm on the day when admission closes: https://www.beaulieu.co.uk/events/simply-japanese/ Please let me know you can not download attachment Toyota GT86 Subaru BRZ drivers club.pdf

    Organisers are asking how many cars are coming to allocate us a club stand. Please let me know who's coming (my estimate 6?). Also, they will be releasing more tickets (due to relaxation of Covid restrictions) - if anyone still wants to join keep your eyes open. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
