Re: Track Days

Hi mate, yea Ive been on one at snetterton it was brilliant, have a look here if you want to see a few vids.
Donald's another member on here who is building a track car, have a look at his thread
here there are some vids of his track day at knockhill in there somewhere

TBH you don't need to make any modifications to go on a track day, you can just turn up in a completely standard car and go on track (just make sure you're brakes and tires are in good nick)
if you do any mod's i would recommend getting the car to handle better first by upgrading the brakes, suspension, reducing weight, tires etc.
and then move on to getting more power

when i was on track the main problem i had was being chucked out of the seat on the corners, and since i got some decent seats and harnesses theres a hell of a difference I would swear they have improved my driving.

i did try to organize a track day last year on the forum but it didn't happen in the end
But i will be trying again this year Interested in trackdays??
Currently in martyboi's garage:
2.0 16v corsa redtop (project redNos) 0-60 in 5.2sec (soon to be turbo'd) and the renNOS has gone to the big scrapyard in the sky :crying: and theres not an AX!
