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 tha

Haven't got many that came out that decent, need a proper lense...

No, nothing like that. So long as your car is capable of passing an MOT, it's fine. If you have a removable tow eye, screw it in before you go out, but that's about it really.

We stayed at the Black Horse Blyton last year and the pub food was good, don't mind going a bit further. Theres probably a few options in Gainsborough.

My fuel gauge is useless, tenner puts it on half a tank, I'll just bring a can to get me to the petrol station if I fall short.

 

My hat is comical, birds vespa thing, but it's comfy.

 

I'm gonna wing it on reliability. I'll bring the spare wheel, that's about it. It's eaten all my spare belts already.. Scunthorpe isn't far if something explodes.

Excellent! Big thanks to all who made it happen!

 

My first trackday too, and this is a great track for it, recommend it to anyone. Speed/type of cars varied greatly and it still all worked well.

 

I managed to keep off the grass (and not roll it), and had great fun. Roll-on next year!

 

I didn't practice recording any driving footage, and on the day i failed to get any. I also failed to take photos of others (i think a few of us learnt a few things, gonna have to write them down!) So it'll be great to see any photos taken by anyone else.

Haha, launch it! 

 

Nice pictures, gonna have to steal those - I didn't get to run with many Polos, we should do a group start next time.. i didn't aim high enough though because many other cars were slower than they were capable of. Apart from a couple of MGs I think we were amongst the quickest..
