Novices Track Day Video, Rockingham 2018

Hi All,

  after doing the Nervous Novices article in the April, 2020 LF, I thought I'd have a go at a similarly themed YouTube video. For those interested you can find the video here:

https://youtu.be/yfwIwHGaZYU

I'm sure it won't be as popular as the build video, which is nearing 150k views now, but I hope its a useful insight into doing a track day and especially for novices.

Hey... great video John.  A super explanation of how we do it, too. 

See you on track in 2021 (and yes, Anglesey should be on everyone's bucket list).

Excellent video - brilliant introduction to Club track days, and hopefully an encouragement to anyone thinking of taking the plunge next year!

What a fabulous video - well done John.

Ivaan - great to see the tyre rack.  I was the proud owner of one of those and it did us brilliantly for years when we travelled to Club trackdays and sprints up and down the country in the days before we had a trailer.  Only a small number were made and I sold mine on about 10 years ago - wonder who has it now?
