Did see that - yes seems pricey compared to others and its only the Indy circuit but its an option

Are there any at Bedford?

I don't think so! I'm still interested if I still have the MX, if I don't I doubt I'll come unless I get either a 944 or a working E30, otherwise it looks like I'm going classic again, don't think the car would cope

Can't do 22nd Aug

I thought Bedford sounded good as it has lots of grass run-off areas unlike some circuits

I've heard the Donington track days are timed rather than open pit-lane... Would be nice to have open pit-lane so that we are free to enjoy as we please and get more track time for our 's

Ive never done a car track day so it may well be slightly different - but i do a lot of bike track days and on the non open pit lane days they split the riders into beginners/novice, intermediate and advanced - so 3 groups - and to be honest i did Brands yesterday and each group got four 20 min sessions in before lunch and 5 after lunch - and i personally feel this is as much track time as you need and i was knackered riding back home!!! As i said it may well be different when it comes to cars and is obviously not quite as exhausting. And at least you dont have to wear leathers in a car!!! Unless you are feeling a little kinky that day!!?? Anyway - i dont mind doing open or timed pit lane set up - i just want to do a bloody track day - anything!!!!!!

Its the fact that you get called off the track after 20 mins just when you might be getting into a rhythm and starting to improve your times. An open pit-lane would be ideal and the best value for money too
