There are many Motorsport enthusiast out there that do not realise they could be laying rubber down on the same Circuits as their heroes!
A track day is the opportunity for drivers to take their own pride and joys for a day of track driving at their favourite Circuit without the worry of speed traps! You can remain focused on getting the most out of your vehicle without having to worry about the other factors that road driving brings.
You do not have to have any special licence or vehicle, or have any track driving experience. As long as you are legal to drive on the road and your Car or Motorscyle is in safe working order then there is not much else stopping you taking part in a track day.
The events are normally run in one of 2 formats - an 'Open Pitlane' track day means that the Circuit is open all day and drivers can enter and exit the track as often as they like. A maximum Cars on track limit applies which may result in a small queue in the pits but there is never usually longer than a few minutes wait.
Track days can also be 'sessioned' which basically means the attendees are split into ability groups of which each rotate with 20 minutes each per hour on track. Evening events and special guest events are also common.
On all track days there will be qualified instructors on hand to give tips and advice, and the Circuit itself will be monitored at all times by marshals who job is focused on ensuring the safety of everyone on Circuit. In the morning briefing, all drivers will be informed of the rules and regulations and are expected to abide by them at all times.
