Hi Joe,

This could work for me, I'm looking to book DN20, Nurburgring 27th/28th Sept, so Spa is on the way back.

Now will Barry survive 4 days of high speed trackdays? Or more to the point will I??

Yes Barry will be fine, but it might be a good idea to bring extra tyres, pads, brake fluid, oil, filters........

How do we go forward with this package?

I have seen a bit more info on FB but I imagine not everyone is on there.

Under-steer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car, over-steer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you take the wall with you

Hi Santa Joe,

I see on circuit days (https://circuit-days.co.uk/track-days-schedule-spa-francorchamps) that these two days are being run by them (or at least they have some "spaces" on this event)

As you say, its £299 if booked prior to 1st Jan, so do we just go with that or is there any other process we should go through, have you been speaking to Chris or his colleagues?

As an aside, as I'm in the area that weekend, I think I will just book the two days and hope my fellow Coupe friends show up to show me how its done driving

Merry Christmas all snowman

Hiya knight, you all ok?

I've had the highly modified E46 M3 which was a blast until the SMG pump failed. Now I'm in a Focus St, c310 bhp which with 384lb/ft is enough for me now

I’ve booked the 1st and 2nd October 2018 direct with Circuit Days at £299 each day!

My mate with two bicycles welded together (some people call them Caterhams) is also booked.

Happy New Year festivities to you all

Gooders i was watching that track day offer but thought it was abit late in the year but now it may look better for me that late because im planner on another road trip but start a Monza then head to the ring and end up at Spa.

Hi Adam,

Happy New Year to you.
It works out well for me as the otherside of that weekend is DN20 at Nurburgring which I'm booked on, so I'm just extended my time in Germany/Begium for a couple of extra days and realistically, £600 for two days at Spa seemed a bargain to me!

Hope to catch-up with you in 2018 - any track days planned in UK?
