Track days
Tue 23rd May 2017

This will be the first time that the Club has visited Oulton Park for several years.  It used to be one of our ‘sell-out’ days in years gone-by and for good reason – a wonderful, entertaining yet challenging circuit located in lovely Cheshire parkland, easily accessible from the M6 and other major roads.  Once used for non-championship F1 racing, the circuit is still a top-class facility and hosts a range of prestigious car (and bike) racing through the year, including the famous Gold Cup event.  The track layout combines quick straights and entertaining swoops and dips with a number of challenging bends including the banked Shell-Oils hairpin, the double-apex Lodge Corner and the famous Old Hall corner.  Simply brilliant in a Seven.

We will be running Club-exclusive sessions throughout the day (a 20 minute session every hour), providing roughly two and a half hours of track time in total.  There will be drivers of all ability levels out on track at the same time during the Club sessions but we are limiting numbers to 36 cars and, with plenty of instructors available, we are welcoming drivers of all ability levels.  As usual at our Club trackdays we will be hosting a social event for the evening before the event, the ESV will be in attendance, our ‘Buddy System’ will be offered to help the lesser-experienced and instruction will be available without additional charge.

The event is open for booking via the Club’s website or by using the Booking Form which will be included in the April edition of Low Flying.  Participation, including the benefits identified above, is great value at £229 for one car and main driver, with additional drivers (who must be Club members) welcome at £25 per head and passengers at £5 each.

This looks to be a cracking Club event at a ‘must drive’ location – book your place now!
