Littlehavens Trackday Sunday 9th September 2012

Guys I help to run this event and have done so for the last 8 years. Great day drivers love it , paying passengers love it and the funds raised are so needed.
I dont know what reaction on here as I run it through Club Scuderia who amazingly and generously give £3500.00 sponsorship every year - bless em. Anyone interested in driving and giving paying passenger rides?

This is exclusive event; it is for Lambo, Ferrari, Ford GT.McClaren, Aston etc

The event starts at 9.30am on Sunday 9th September and is based on giving rides around the track to members of the public and ends at 4.30pm. No crash helmets required.

If you arrive anytime after 9.00am, you will be given the opportunity of practicing on this banked track that is very different to a normal flat track.

When you arrive (directions to be posted at a later date) be careful as there are a number of speed bumps after you enter the Fords Dunton Area – I strongly suggest a slow approach.

Please check your insurance – most of you will be aware of track day restrictions. You will be asked to sign a waiver for the organisers and you will be given and fitted with a wrist band, without which you will not gain access to the test track. Passengers will also be required to sign a waiver and be fitted with a wrist band this will protect you from third party claims. Crash helmets will not be necessary and are not required.

Eight cars at a time will be on the track and drive 2 laps approximately 4 minutes total. No overtaking will be permitted and a maximum speed of 90 mph has been suggested ha ha. Some bad people reached 150mph last year

The track will be managed by marshals with flags. The reality is that with 8 cars on track, this will act as a brake and extreme speeds won’t be possible. Fords will stop any excesses but as we will have passengers, we will not want to terrify them.

When returning to the unloading area, the marshals will be waiting to help passengers out. You can then return to the new passenger area or go to the adjacent area for a break.

Each ride will be charged to passengers at £20.00 and we expect to do 800 rides during the day. We are restricted as only 8 cars can go on track at a time.

It promises to be a great day as there are many other attractions and many more than last year.

Due to the nature of this event we are likely to have many drivers wishing to take part and so we have to ask you to confirm your car registration, this will be checked on arrival and if people are not pre registered they will not be permitted to go on track. In the event of oversubscription priority will be given to those that have helped the cause in the past by driving, fundraising etc and especially to my friends!

Bacchi (Harsh) is helping with the Promotion and Marketing of the event and we are really grateful to him and all at Petrolhead Nirvana for joining the team. We expect around 4000 visitors on the day who will be asked to pay an admission charge to help the fundraising effort.

In 2011 £32,000.00 went directly to the hospice. The Event is held at Fords Test Track at Dunton Essex and they make no fee whatsoever!!!

Love to go Robbie, especially for such a worthwhile cause. Unfortunately I am scheduled to be in Sardinia and Corsica middle September.

It certainly is a successful event and will be in blazing sunshine as I will be on the Route Napolean!

Will you have go faster stripes by then? Or will it be Miss Moneypenny in the passenger seat? I presume Q has fitted a rear brake parachute for extra bling!

Bruce, I should definitely get my car on 31 aug., as it will actually be ready sooner, (delayed to deliver on my birthday and reg on 1 sept) and then gives me a few days to put some miles on and get fully acquainted with the new girl. Obviously I won't have a reg no. 'til end Aug. if you need it. The day sounds a great opportunity to stretch her a bit more without anything excessive. Also to meet up with you guys. sounds great. please count me in. Meantime, this waiting thing is truly unbearable, relieved only by reading forums and viewing videos over and over - does that make it worse? (Might make you jealous with a fully functional Iris and more power?- ....assuming...)
