Sunday 13th Nov, using the full international circuit, open pitlane. £165 with Bookatrack.
Never been on a trackday around Rockingham before in a car, but the banking may be fun :) :shock: (didnt use the banking on the bike)
any 1 else fancy it?

I presume the Rockingham International Circuit is the one which uses the infield 'road course' and part of the banking? The point where you transition from the banking to the road course caught out a lot of the F3 guys when they first used it. The kerb was like a launching ramp, result - spectacular pics of the F3 cars airborne at angles up to 45 degrees :shock:

Look forward to your impressions Andy, I'll be sunning myself in Oz watching the WRC :mrgreen:

Ooooh that sounds really quite tempting but unfortunately my finances will not permit me to be able to attend this event :x

Next year will probably be when I next attend a trackday, looking forward to doing Croft and Combe! :twisted:

Thanks for the info Chris, I've got a full weekend here getting my dash/datalogger installed so I can drop it off mid-week to have the extra sensors installed. Have fun at Elvington :wink:

i was gonna book a session at bedford a few months, but i turned the boost up too much :roll:
now the new engine is in, run-in and mapped, bedford is a must for next year.
the france trip sounds inviting..... i'll ask a few peeps i know and get back to u chris.
