Have you seen who we have got to warm up the circuit?

http://www.britcar24hr.co.uk/cms/24hr.php

The Britcar 24 Hr racing will 'rubber in' the circuit nicely for us!

Do you fancy seeing the 500hp M3 GTR's close up and get to see the action from the pit lane?

I'm going to try and get us all a parking area right in the paddock - and there is a club deal on the price - use this link to make your booking and don't forget to say you are with the BMW Car Club

http://www.britcar24hr.co.uk/cms/news.php?item.1272

I can't think of a better start to a BMW trackday than this

Hope to see some of you there

Regards
Nick

Our resident snapper Darren Teagles has just confirmed he will be coming to do the pictures again.
They will be hosted on Flickr again so that you can get them all free of charge.

Here is the link to last years pictures
http://www.flickr.com/photos/bmwccgb...7627555035573/

Bob Harper, editor of BMW Car magazine, will also be there to do a feature on the day

We may also get some TV, I'm hoping BMW's in house production team will come and do some coverage for one of their promotional videos.

.. so if you don't want to be spotted on camera or TV, get some gaffer tape for your number plate!

Or you could just go to Trax on 2nd of Sept, only like 20 to get in and you can go round the circuit for another 35 quid or so...

Yes because 20 minutes on trackfor 55 is MUCH better value than 8 hours on track for 325... lmao !!!!

To factor it in, an hour at your rate is 105. Plus the initial fee.

It'd therefore cost approx 860 for the equivalent time on track. Surrounded by berks in corsas and all the rest of it, considering that Trax is a chav filled shitfest.

You know when the headmaster is telling you off for being rude, but you can see him laughing really at what you just said.

It looks like nobody bothers with insurance. As it's not a race as such, then there won't really be any overtaking.
I'll certainly be taking it easy, I'm more interesting in how to approach/come out of bends properly.
