I want to start tracking my car.
I will have a crack at the drag strip for fun but predominantly I want to track it.
I have sorted out a bit of a power hike and a whiteline/eiback handling package so Im reasonably confident the car will behave in the right hands.
Ive never done it before, well, not in anger and would like to get an introduction, maybe with kidd gloves to start off with.
the prospect of getting in someones way (and hence incurring their wrath) does not appeal.

any good recommendations as to who to see/where to go please?

Probably an airfield day would be the best start, plenty of grass run off ;) and very up close and personal with both, other participants and the marshalls/ organisers, a very freindly bunch usually.

http://www.bookatrack.co.uk/-pE might find the nearest airfield for you..

bookatrack looks to be more circuit oriantated than I thought, there is another one (which I've forgotten) I'll find it later as tea break is over. :(

work, curse of the drinking classes!

I know that Goodwood and Castle Coombe are local tracks but I would prefer to be eased into the scene

Bedford are holging a RSOC trackday on the 19th Feb 80! This is considered to be the most novice friendly track with little or no chance of damage.

I'll be there with a few characters ;)
