Having a shot of FOAD'S Samara on a track would be Autoshite nirvana achieved. Damn being this southern* chump that I am and damn Silverstone for not doing similar events.

You're welcome to drive the Panda given it doesn't blow up before getting there.


I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!

I'll hopefully be there, sadly won't be putting a car on track myself. (Lexus will have been mothballed into storage by then) 

 

Like last time, I'll bring my helmet along to be borrowed out for free. :)

I know of a old quarry/lay by a few miles down the road from the track...not sure how accessible it is these days though.

Diesel Polo round a track, what could possibly go wrong? I hope you do win it, so I can have a go.

I want to take the Locost there next year but I need to learn the track. So, obviously, owning a small rwd sports car I've been looking at large fwd hatchbacks. What's the worst that could happen?

Looks like I have sourced another suitable* track weapon. 16v and everything! 

 

So potentially may have spare seats up for grab if people are interested in trying the delights of knockhill 

 

Roughly £50 for the track fee, plus fuel and tyres contribution - £70 ish for the day.

I very much doubt it will be wet in November in Scotland!

Just in case I will fit the wet weather gear*


*Might be exactly the same as dry weather gear

Do you get a different rate? The website has it as 66 per car and 36 per additional driver .

I estimate this car needs £3000 maybe £4000 spending on it to get it rite and when this is done it will be wotrth about £1500!!
