Hi All,

I've booked this trackday at Castle Combe on Saturday 20th of Feb with BHP for £179: Here

It's not often that weekend open pit lane days crop up here (Castle Combe now run 'semi' open pit) and BHP are decent operators, having attended a few of their days last year.

Would be good to see you there. smile

That's a shame mate; I'm at Snetterton and Oulton in January but both are Marshalls only days (going with an employee who's a Marshall). Once MSV have announced dates we will be booking a drift day at Oulton which should be fun, will let yourself and Suba know as it's good rwd practice.
I'll get cracking and arrange something at Curborough, hope to see you then.

Here's a couple of clips I found: Youtube

onboard

It's a low friction surface that they keep wet, therefore speeds are low and you don't need to fill the back of your car with old tyres. Happy to help where I can, I'm no drifting expert but have confidence to get the back out here and there wink
Instructors are available, no dates published yet though MSV

Fingers crossed. Has coilovers, MX5 race series discs and pads, roll bar, torsen diff, seats, chassis rails, super-lightweight wheels etc. Aircon stripped out as well. Just debating whether to fully strip it...
