  1. Everyone loves a trackday! Last year saw a lot of first timers on the track and it was a fantastic day. For those that don't know Blyton Park is a fantastic little course that is perfectly suited to a small car like the Polo. This year is a little later than usual, Saturday 14th October, but hopefully the weather will keep dry for us. Doesn't matter what you drive whether it is a little 55bhp Mk2 or a fire breathing Turbo'd G40, everyone is welcome and I can assure you it is a great day out to enjoy your car. This again will be run by our friends at Mazda on Track so you can rest assured that everything will be conducted in a safe but fun environment. The track has plenty of run off areas so if you do go into a corner a bit hot then hopefully all that will happen is you'll get a few grass stains. You will require a helmet there will be a limited supply on the day so please let me know when paying if you need one or you can buy your own for around the £50 mark. Car should be able to pass a MOT which means they are in roadworthy condition with no fluid leaks. You will need to bring your current MOT and driving licence on the day. Prices are currently TBC but last year we were £120 per car, Club Members got a discounted rate, additional drivers were £25 and passengers were £10. I can't see them changing much from this but I'll update ASAP There will also be tuition available on the day, highly recommended for those who are beginners and want to get the most out of their car. Sign on starts at 7.30am with the briefing at 8.30am and the track opens at 9am. There are quite a few B&B's around for those that don't fancy an early start. There is a small cafe on site which does lunch, snacks and soft drinks. Please put your name down below if you are interested. All those interested please keep an eye on your PMs. Once prices are set and dates for payment are set this will all be sent to you via PM. 1 - Kwijibo_coupe - Polo GT - Club Member 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 -

    Never heard of Blyton Park?

    http://www.blytonpark.co.uk/ Blyton Park isn't a big famous race circuit. What it is is a Driving Centre, with a number of different track layouts. You can still get a lot of speed up, it's wide enough to overtake on the straights, and wide enough on the corners to choose a line and sort yourself out if you get it wrong. As a track, it's flat, it's smooth, with a vast array of corners, so it suits Polos well. If I was comparing it to an F1 circuit, it would be a smaller version of Catalunya. When we've been before, MoT have run one track layout in the morning, and a tighter, more technical, one in the afternoon, this is great because it keeps it fresh and lets you explore different aspects of track driving and your, and your car's capabilities. I know on a map it looks like it's in the middle of nowhere, but the truth is, it's in the middle of nowhere, 10 minutes off the motorway, nicely halfway up the country. https://goo.gl/maps/ceVwycLu8FC2

    FAQ / What is a track day?

    In association with Mazda on Track (MoT), we hire a circuit for the day. The rest of this page is taken from the question and answers page on their site. Please take this thread as an introduction only, and not a set in stone version of the rules, which will be given in the briefing session. Frequently asked questions for our Track Days We know that there can be a lot of questions if you've never been on a track day before. Even if you have, we know that you might still have a question or two about our track days, so to help things along, here is an ever expanding list of questions and answers. If you cannot find the answer to your question here, do contact us, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. What is a Track Day or Car Control Day? A Track day is a non-competitive, controlled event where you can allowed to drive your car around a real established motor racing circuit or closed airfield without speed restrictions. We require that you hold a full driving licence, and that your car is road legal. Driving manners are expected to be high, and beginners are completely welcome. Car Control days are designed to be fun, safe and also educational. As we run on a wide open space around cones there is also very little risk of impact damage to cars which naturally is of major concern to many participants. The actual driving activity runs from 10am to 4pm with a lunch break. I'm totally new to track driving You may find that booking some introductory tuition is a good idea. It's available at all of our events and is most often able to be booked in advance along with the purchase of our events from a drop down box on the relevant page. I'm worried about the chances of damage to my car The common misconception is that track driving is more dangerous than road driving. It is in fact the other way round. On track you have no oncoming traffic, run off areas, and a crash helmet for most events. We take every reasonable precaution in making sure you get your precious car home in one piece. If you do spin off, circuits have soft foam walls and gravel traps in the most common 'error' points, but you should always be aware that there is a chance you may damage the car, and insure accordingly. If you would like to arrange insurance, please call the office and we can help you. On a car control day, you should expect quite high wear and tear on your tyres. You might want to call ahead and we can arrange new tyres for you. I'm worried I won’t be fast enough on track Don't worry, people can talk the talk but only a few can walk the walk. You can go at whatever speed you are comfortable with. The rules that we have set for track driving mean that you will not get hassled by faster cars. When there are 2 or more cars on track at once we remove all forms of competition by banning stop watch timing and aggressive over taking. You never know, you may be seriously quick out there and put much more powerful cars or experienced drivers to shame! Do I need a crash helmet? We require drivers to wear a helmet on both our trackdays and car control days. If you don't own one, don't worry! You can hire one from us for just £10.00 for the full day by paying cash at the event. Can I bring a passenger? Yes of course, charges for passengers can vary according to our events. Usually for a track day or car control day the charge is nothing more than £10.00 for the duration of the event. Refund Policy If cancelled outside of 30 days of the event, the cost of the event will be refunded LESS 25% for administration charges. Refunds are not permitted within 30 days of the event. Refunds are only made to the person who purchased the event place, and are refunded via the original means of payment. Force Majeure If Mazda on Track or its track partners are unable to provide the event due to unforeseen circumstances such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, industrial action, government restriction or other restriction imposed by the circuit or venue, Mazda on Track will issue a credit at its discretion up to the value of the event and activities booked. Events that suffer a delayed start or curtailed early will not normally qualify for credit. Any credit will be issues at Mazda on Tracks sole discretion.
  5. We had a decent turn out at the Club Polo track day last year so I have spoken to Mazda On Track to organise another one this year. It will be held at Blyton Park again on the 16th July. For those that don't know Blyton Park is a fantastic little course that is perfectly suited to a small car like the Polo. Doesn't matter what you drive whether it is a little 55bhp Mk2 or a fire breathing Turbo'd G40, everyone is welcome and I can assure you it is a great day out to enjoy your car. Search YouTube and you'll find plenty of videos of the track and even a few filmed in Polos This again will be run by our friends at Mazda on Track so you can rest assured that everything will be conducted in a safe but fun environment. The track has plenty of run off areas so if you do go into a corner a bit hot then hopefully all that will happen is you'll get a few grass stains. You will require a helmet there will be a limited supply on the day so please let me know when paying if you need one or you can buy your own for around the £50 mark. Car should be able to pass a MOT which means they are in roadworthy condition with no fluid leaks. You will need to bring your current MOT and driving licence on the day. Prices are £135 per car normally. Through us forum users will get on for £120 and if you are a Club Member it will be £90. If you have extra drivers they are an additional £25 and passengers are £10 Sign on starts at 7.30am with the briefing at 8.30am and the track opens at 9am. There are quite a few B&B's around for those that don't fancy an early start. I'm going to start by getting numbers and then in February I'll start asking for full payment or deposits to secure places. Please put your name down below if you are interested and if you have any questions please let me know. 1 - Kwijibo_coupe - Polo GT - Club Member 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 -
