Would love to have a go on this, but having seen and heard of so many bad experiences on Trackdays, I just would not want to wreck my car ....lol.

If I had the use of a car the same as mine, yep no probs.

Heres a question, I'll be due an oil change and rear pads around the time of the track day i've booked. Best to do it just before, or just after?

There's a couple of ways of looking at that.

The oil change is no biggy, but the brakes are.

It depends on whether you intend to really test the car, or take it easy.

It will be a good way to finish them off completely, however you would'nt want to f*ck the discs up!

Also a track day is a good place to break the new pads in, conversely a track day is NOT a good place to break the pads in!

Personally I'd get everything done a couple of weeks prior.

I would go for the Cadwell one again - but there is no way I'm taking my car anywhere near a track on Friday 13th!

I noticed that - I'm not superstitious though.
