View Full Version : Track Day - Wroughton - 25th August

21-06-01, 05:47 PM

I have just been to Silverstone to sort out the arrangements for the Track day and we have the following organised.

1 .The track - obviously!! approximately 2 miles with a number of differing corners to test you and your cars ability. Mines a GD, so it will be the driver letting it down, not the car!!
2. Sprint Slalom Trial - timed sprint and slalom course to find out what you and your car can do.
3. High Speed Runway blast - we have clear full use of the whole of the runway, so you can actually find out if your car will do 180mph, or should I say if you have the bottle to do those speeds.
4. Hooligan Area - This is set away from the rest of the activities and is where you can basically do what you want, be it doughnuts or handbrake turns or J turns, whatever. (If you see a load of white tyre smoke, that will be me!)

There will be a burger van onsite for drinks and sandwiches etc, and there will be toilets available.

The National Science Museum is also based a Wroughton and might be worth a visit.

The cost for the day is 100 only, great value etc. Do your bit by supporting the club and why not enter.

There is a spectator area for your loved ones to come and see you using the cars for what they were designed for, and as mentioned, the museum is also on site for when they get bored.

Documents for download are below, post them back to me.

Good man Rob. I've posted my money to you. It'll be like going to Alton Tower you won't know what to go on and without any queues!


I think that's most options covered!

Some more info

Wroughton Airfield Science Museum
A 1960s Hawker-Siddeley Trident airliner is one of several large-scale exhibits at the Wroughton Airfield Science Museum. Other aircraft include a De Havilland Comet, Britain's pioneering jetliner of the 1950s, and a Lockheed Constellation, representative of the lumbering piston-engined airliners supplanted by the new jets. The collection belongs to the Science Museum in London, which cannot provide the cavernous spaces necessary to display commercial airliners.
