Don’t think so, but I’ll find out. They are happy for us to park together.
I am booked to drive at the Runway, but in my Lotus Exige V6.
For Shelsley Walsh (Supercarfest, the hill), I'm booked to drive in my GT S MC.
Both bookings carried over from last year.
Hope to see some of you this time around, a couple of years ago I found your cars in the field, but nobody was around.

If you have a contact and can ask that would be great and most appreciated.

Would be a great chance to give circa 500bhp per ton a run
Do you want the oil spill kit halfway, 2/3rds or optimistically at the end of the runway? ;)

Unsurprisingly they are fully booked for the runway with a long waiting list.
Thanks Zep. No worries. I'll still aim to come along anyway as itching to get driving to some events.

I might have to do another North Weald driver training day instead to give the little TVR a decent run out.

If you do then I'll come along as well and drink coffee in the sun while I watch, but I shan't do the training. The Aston took some remedial work last time - that concrete is brutal (as @JonW's front tyre will testify) and I'm not good enough to lose control smoothly - it was all violent, shuddering screeching stops. @Dan!'s Rotus or a nice light TVR would be perfect, in contrast.

Agreed. I think a lighter car works well as my old TVR certainly wasn't destroyed. Your welcome to use my GTi-6 or something if you fancied. I think anything lighter and more analgue you would get more out of.

Took the TVR out for its first ever run yesterday. Christ.....it is bloody quick and only upto half throttle. I wasn't brave or stupid enough for any more!

Sadly, Covid has taken it's toll on the businesses associated with the Car Limits training days, but what this does mean is that Andy is now doing a lot more of the training in person.
The main business was the experience days, whereupon 250-300 people a day would arrive to do a few laps in a super car, which came to grinding halt.

It would be good to get a number of days booked from members on here to support both Andy and the business whilst also learning how not to kill themselves.
Having done 6 or 7 days with him over the years I can confirm that one day is never enough and like any skill, proper car control needs to be regularly practiced and coached.
