49 track evening anyone?

Hi Guys and Girls
Looking to book up the bedford autodrome track evening for the 8th of April.
Did this last summer in my Z4 and was great fun for 49, with a good couple of hours of track time.
Anyone else booked up for this event?

I'm thinking about it. I did an Atom experience at Bedford Autodrome and found it pretty small and plain as a track, but it does have large run off areas for the most part!

I fancy Brands Hatch, heres the link:

The South west track layout is bigger at 2.8 miles long

Full gp is 4.1 miles at Bedford, I would hardly call it small. 17 corners and longer then silverstone.

Brands is brilliant, but very small on the indi, and I've never seen a trackday using the full circuit.

As a trackday venue Bedford is brilliant, easy to get to, plenty of space if you get things wrong and a good mix of fast, slow and technical corners.

Brands is a fantastic racing circuit, but very technical, bumpy and narrow that punishes mistakes with the kitty litter or Armco. For experienced track day goers its excellent, but for people going for the first time or in their pride and joy Bedford is a better choice.

For £49 I don't think you can lose!

Met office are predicting a heat wave - seriously!

A great event yesterday.

I'll try to pull together a more thorough review (of my car and others in attedance) in another thread. It was good to meet up with SubZero too!

Highly recommend MSVT - I actually felt that the evening session was enough track time and fantastic value. If you get a chance to book on another session its well worth it.
