As a result of the coronavirus we will continue to implement safety precautions at our trackdays for your protection including the following;

Signing on and registration will be online and via email before the event.

Briefing will be conducted outside and or in small groups.

Check in and checking drivers’ licences will be carried out safely on the day.

Social distancing guidelines will apply throughout the event.

Helmet hire will probably not be available.

Passengers and additional drivers should be in the same bubble as the driver.

We ask that you do not bring spectators to minimise the number of people at the circuit.

We will amend these precautions as the situation with the virus changes and confirm in the events final instructions that are emailed to participants.


We have visited Croft for the last two years and have had two very great successful days, so by popular demand we have secured a day at Croft again in 2021. The Club has again taken the lead in booking the circuit on the basis that we will share track-time between ourselves and members of the ‘MX-5 Owners Club’.  We have reserved exclusive use of the circuit for a 40 minute session per hour for L7C members, with MX-5 Owners Club participants using the remaining 20 minute session.

Our running will commence in sessions (with participants grouped and allocated to one of two 20 minute sessions) but our intention is to move to Open Pit Lane (OPL) format – allowing track access at any time throughout our 40 minute period – no later than lunchtime and, hopefully, before then. MX-5 Owners Club participants will continue using the remaining 20 minute session. The day is ‘noisy’, subject to a 105dB(A) limit measured statically prior to starting track activities.  The track limit at any one time is 25 cars.

The day will be open to drivers at all levels and as a result we will be offering our ‘Buddy System’ and free-of-charge instruction.

The cost for a car and main driver is only £215, with an additional driver (who must be a Club member) paying £40 and passengers being welcome at £5 each.

This promises to be a great mid-summer northern England Club Trackday that should appeal to all members, irrespective of location!
