I'll be at Combe sometime in the next few months, depending on what car I own at the time (the 911 is currently up for sale). Going to go back to a race car. cool

Combe, Friday 25th July, £169 for open pit lane in June is great value:

Plenty of places still. Anyone else?

Insurance is void on trackdays unless u take out trackday insurance.
I don't know how much it is for a day I have never bothered.

Looking at Castle Coombe own website, they do semi-open pit lane for £170 with FREE instruction. This is cheaper than Javelin. Is the Javelin deal better in some way?

I need to understand which deal is best before I book. Any ideas? 25th July is still looking the favorite.

i'm booked in for monday now. (castle combe) as i have the week off work, and i was getting a strong trackday urge!

i have done a few trackdays and never bothered with insurance as i only paid £300 for my coupe

if you have never done a trackday before then the javelin instructor takes you out for a few laps

Nice one. I'll need to book soon.

My question was; Castle Coombe offer free instruction, whereas Javelin charge £20. So is Javelin a better deal than booking direct with Coombe? chinny

Semi open pit lane is not as good as open pit lane where you're free to come and go as you like (providing track isn't full). Semi open (although not a format I think I've ever seen operated at combe), will mean you have only certain windows you can go out in.

I'm still thinking the 25th July to stretch mines legs before Spa.

It's one of the quicker circuits in the UK, yes. Avon rise, the continuation of the main pit straight, has an interesting bit of adverse camber at the end, which sees the rear end go a little bit light as by which you could see 140mph, and at least be over 100mph.
