Autoshite Track Events

Recommended Posts

I have mentioned this before but we are booked on to the Knockhill trcak day on 3rd July. http://trackdays.knockhill.com/hot-hatch-car-trackday-july3

 

It is a hot hatch day so we are taking the Starlet - as what could be hottier and hatchier. The day is also german day so I imagine there will be one or two golfs!

 

Anyone else fancy it?

Cool. I am waiting on one other person.  

 

If she comes then we will take the Starlet and the Swift - will then have two spare seats if people fancy it.

Alternatively if she doesn't we will just take the starlet so will be full to capacity.

Yeeeaaah, fuck it!

 

I've never done a track day before. Shameful. I should try one.

 

If 17-Coffees sees this thread he may be interested, but might bring one of his fleet. Who knows.

Superbio.

 

The roffle swift will be Bucketer, 320touring and Supernaut.

 

The starlet will be The Moog, Craig and carol.

 

Will get it booked and paid for, then pm you.

 

Brakes are going to be changed on swift this weekend including new fluid, and will get the spare tyre sorted.

It's time...

Been hustled down the back roads up Deeside, Glenshee and Applecross/Shieldaig, as well as down the strip a number of times at Crail. The Time is now! 

Will do the rear pads and see how it feel's braking from speed, felt off last weekend. Will also check the front tyres again (Rears were changed last year). All the major stuff was done at the end of April(Service, timing, etc) 

 

I'll decide on the day though! If It's pouring with rain I won't bother coming on track (Hate wet track days) and it's currently the only I have on the road.

I'll provide my own fuel as well, as well as helmet! 

 

So I'll be there, be it for the Banter or Track time. :D

I have a camera for video, no need for a mount or owt as I've got pretty proficient at one-handed driving whilst filming this week, admittedly only off-roading at 10mph but I can't see it being much different.

Also, I have a calendar for measuring laptimes.

To be fair as long as one of the cars is still working at the end, jobs a goodun!

 

Might borrow your lift 320 to do the starlets gearbox oil before the off.

goodbthing with wet trackdays is limited tyre wear

 

That is true, but my past experiences with Track days have all been in the wet, and meant I've not been pushing it! Nerves due to the weather, being the slowest car there in every way (Causing a train effect at points) and hoping to god that I don't crash!

 

Doubt I'd be out every session, more want to say "I've tracked a luxo-barge" and have a laugh! :D

Also would mean you someone can save a quid on a session and borrow my helmet as well!

Seen that it's not just a trackday, but also a "VAG & German Day"...

I'm going to guess there will be less track time than normal due to the drag & drift events, as well as alot of #yolo # swag type chavs going about. 

 

Hopefully going to still make it along, but won't be taking the car on track sadly.

With the work due on the Abarth (blame Bambi) I'm wanting to save a few quid where needed.  :?

      Some discussion was had at the recent Scotoshite Xmas scraningtons about a return match at Cannock auctions around the end of January/beginning of Feb.  Saturday auctions are on 25/01 and 01/02. 
      Usual arrangements to apply; ie. Friday evening gathering at one of WS11's glittering* dining opportunities, Saturday brekky at the Trucker's Rest on the A5 then on to Cannock motor auctions for EOL shite and assorted rank-fodder.  And DETHBURGAS.
      Shout up.

      Hi all,
       
      Bit of a random one but do any Manchester/Derbyshire/South or West Yorkshire based Shiters fancy a meetup sometime in Glossop?
       
      I know it's not exactly a sprawling metropolis but it has a reasonably priced car park, a Wetherspoons, a caff, etc.
       
      Main reason for suggesting it is it's a nice drive in from most directions - over Holme Moss from the North or Snake Pass from Sheffield direction.
       
      The A624 from the south isn't too bad either.
       
      Something like a Thursday evening would be best for me but open to suggestions.

      Yo! I've been nominated (many times) to organise a shitefest next year, considering i can't even organise my own life then this could be a challenge but I'm happy to try and arrange something if there enough interest?.
      I've made enquiries at the Rose pub where we hold our East Coast Retro car meets on in Shotley near Ipswich, Suffolk (IP9 1NL) and she's more than happy for us to use the field over weekend for £5 per person per night if sleeping over, there are toilet facilities and the pub does good grub plus they have a large room for us to have a meal or maybe a quiz on the Saturday night?.
      I've also spoken to a friend who's a volunteer at the Ipswich Transport Museum and even though the museum is closed to the public on a Saturday he can't see no reason why we can't have the museum to ourselves for a private tour around and even the possibility of a bus ride on one of their historic buses which I'm sure a few on here would really enjoy.
      Now it's obviously early days yet but what i need to know roughly is how many of you shitters be interested in this and i need to give the pub a date as their field is getting booked up so that we can secure for our chosen weekend.

      While I’m feeling sociable and non stressed. Does anyone fancy meeting up at Staplefield on the 3rd November to watch the veteran car rally? The pub does a good bbq breakfast.
