Sounds ideal, quick and agile but not going to get you into too much trouble.  Don’t worry about setting lap records and just enjoy yourself. 
And start saving the pennies for the next one - it is very addictive :)

Thanks for the advice. 
My only other track experience is a few laps of the Nurburgring in my first MX5. I think a proper track day will be quite different though. 
I remember quickly realising the experience was better by trying to be smooth and flowing, the speed would follow.
About 18 years ago I was obsessed one summer with going up the strip at Crail in my Rover 214. That was definitely cheaper than proper track days.

I booked Knockhill for the 28th of April based on the announcement of restriction changes earlier. It is a beginners session. Despite having been to Knockhill loads I’ve never actually been on track, even for an experience. I’m really looking forward to it. 

Who's organizing that one? Will need to get some booked up. 

You'll love it. Just listen to the instructions in the briefing, stay out of the way of faster cars on the straights(who are generally very well behaved) and have fun!

I imagine the first one will be mobbed, unlike a couple of years back where I appear to have the track to myself (from about 2:30 in)

that little Mazda is taking some abuse :) 

now, which one should I take ?

or maybe..........?

would need to go on a trailer so probably not (yet)

 

bookings are now open - I've got myself signed up for 26th April, the mx5 is now my daily driver so I'd better be careful :)

That seems excellent value. 

it is, although they make up for it by selling 50 places so it can get busy at times - you might spend ten minutes queueing at the pit lane but some sessions don't sell out and you can get as much track time as you like. this one will no doubt be very busy but I couldn't resist :)

Since the July session was rained off, I’ve transferred my booking to Tuesday 31st August, let’s hope for a bit of decent weather this time.

The passenger / co-driver seat is currently available if anyone has the day off and fancies coming along for some squealy tyre hooliganism ?

https://www.durhamautoclub.co.uk/page/upcoming-events/

The WEARSIDE CLASSIC and TARGA rallies

Will be held at the NISSAN Plant in Washington on 5th September 2021
 

I’ve messaged to ask if spectators are allowed, might be worth a look out ?

No I don't, but it looks fun

“Spectators are allowed but only at the test next to the Nissan sports and social club. Only competitors and Marshall’s are allowed down to the test track.”

Not sure on times, I’ve emailed someone else in the club for more info

Forecast for tomorrow is 40% chance of rain :( hopefully not flooded off again.

That cod river place is still available if anyone wants to join in ?

a  few snaps from tonights session down at Teeside - a really good turnout with a good mix of cars and (surprisingly) good driving standards.

shame it seems that I was using a potato-cam :(

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!

      Quick poll to see who is available when.
       
      Happy to update the polls with any suggestions!

      As mentioned in the Shitesteddfod Thread  the North Wales Classic Car & Motorcycle Show takes place at Bodrhyddan Hall (Clwyd LL18 5SB) on Sunday, 5th September, 10.00am - 4.00pm. This might be an alternative to Chumley and a good chance for some of us to get together. Details here
      You don't have to pre-book but if we want to park together as a club we'd need to let them know numbers in advance. From the website:
      "Please note, clubs that are wanting to be situated together at the venues and total more than 5 vehicles, we are asking for you to pre book to ensure we have the right space allocation.
      As a club you are still eligible to pay on the day we just need to know numbers for the allocation of space. 
      The ON THE DAY PRICE will be £5.00 PER CLASSIC VEHICLE.
      Customer MUST be in a classic vehicle for the special on the day price to be honoured.
      Classic Vehicle - classic car (aged 2007 / pre-2007) or a car in one of the following themes: American / kit / custom / replica car"
      so our shite should qualify. I'm happy to take on getting us in as a club so please let me know if you're interested in coming and I'll sort it. We'd need a club name, how about Clwb Ceir Cachu?

      ***************************************************

      Righto, shite fans of Norn Iron,

      A suggestion has been put forth that a mini-meet of sorts could be arranged for those of us perched atop this enchanted rock, to strengthen bonds and ogle at terrible, terrible cars about to be inflicted on some other poor bugger.

      Venue is: Ballyclare Car Auctions, Dennison Industrial Estate, Ballyclare BT39 9EB

      http://ballyclarecarauction.co.uk/

      Date is: Wednesday 8th August 2018, from 7pm onward

      http://autoshite.com/calendar/event/52-northern-ireland-mini-meet-ballyclare-auctions/

      Deep-fried items of varying degrees of danger are, apparently, available onsite for those who wish to test the strength of their stomach and other major organs.

      So pop along, in whatever vehicle you fancy, for a bit of craic and to participate in the ever-popular Crispiest Wheelarch Spotting Competition.

      I'll be there, I believe The_Equalizer will be there, and a few other expressions of interest have been indicated from local shiters.

      I may even be wearing my newly-arrived Autoshite t-shirt (courtesy of FilthyJohn) to aid recognition.

      Drop a line below if you reckon you fancy coming along!

      Dat.

      I've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.
      If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.
