Private trackday @ Llandow aftermath!

just thought that i would share my experience on another forum when 20 of us organised a track day at LLandow race track in south Whales (20 miles from Cardiff)

this cost us 2,500 for the day inclusive of marshals and paramedics. it was a great atmosphere as most of us knew each other and trusted each other with our precious metal.

Iíve put up some links to threads and some very good picks

hope you enjoy and possibly encourage somebody on this forum to do something similar.

Great pics I love Z4 M's and the Coupe just says to me drivers car.

Booking a track day - what a great idea.

Excellent.

I went on a private session at Llandow around 8 years ago with I guy I knew through work.

He had a bit of a racing team and assembled various cars for the group to drive:

1. Vauxhall Corsa - tuned engine with proper racing 'trumpets', full roll cage and totally stripped interior

2. Golf GTi - full race prep as above.

3. Classic Porsche 911 soft top

4. Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 4 prepped for rally circuit use on very soft compound tyres.

We had a great time, with the circuit free for our use all day. A few of the guys took their own cars out as well.

Looks like the same marshall is still there. I remember his pretty spectacular beard
