This one is very well run by octane club members ... no chance of any scrotes on track .. Mondello run their own track days and they are a little messier .... you only have to worry about yourself and possible bravery exceeds ability ...

you are perfectly safe

octane track days are 150 and ran on Fridays worth every penny
mondello ones are 200 ish still worth every penny

cheers for that, I might be able to make this then - I'd planned on going to nurenburg this summer

ok so basically I need to get a lid somewhere - any recommendations on something cheap and cheerful I know lidl do them from time to time don't need anything too fancy as it'll only ever be used in the car.

As far as I know you have to be an active contributor to octane/BRoads before they'll let you out for the trackdays....

Erin: There's a trackday training course the first week in march, dunno the exact date but ring mondello and they'll tell ya. It's €50 and the best intro to trackdays you could get. Probably as safe as you'll get out on track too if your worried about your daily...

...just downloaded and installed trackmaster for android - as I have the fisheye dashcam I'm going to mount on the back window with view of drivers controls - which brings me to my next project - wire in a cigaretter adapter that lives inside the rear cubby box - a temp wire will have to do for now.

You will be taking it seriously so ...

would be a good idea to do an oil change and if you can change clutch and brake fluid .... you will be getting them very hot so well worth doing and try use high temp oils etc .... remember it will be a lot harder driving than road driving but so much more fun

I boiled my clutch fluid the first time I was out

Cheers Jap all very new with the exception of the clutch fluid

DOT 5.1 went in last year might flush it afterwards though

ive held off on the clutch as I heard its a pure bitch to bleed no issues with changes and she waa treated to some redline mt90 last year

Looks to be ready for the track so! Don't be too worried about it for the training day, you won't be going for any lap records that day....you probably won't even remember all the corners by the end of it, but it's a great introduction!

The clutch is only a bitch to bleed if it has been emptied, you will be grand for normal bleeding.
