In my experience too much democracy usually leads to these events getting no-where. Just do a quick straw poll then make a decision. Most people will like a track thats pretty central, and is wide with safe run-out areas. Ill go pretty much anywhere that fills the bill. Might be best to avoid August owing to hols.
Oh, one more thing. Although the 172 track day at Palmersport was a hoot, it would be even better to have all the other Clios there too. Plus it gives a much greater chance of getting the numbers required. So maybe it should be a Cliosport track day!
Ive been getting what I can only describe as withdrawal symptoms since Bedford: insomnia, cold sweats, itchy right foot, the urge to drive my car around bends flat out with all four tyres squealing, thoughts about braking distance - turn in - clipping the apex – getting the power down, the wonders of lift off oversteer!!!!
I say wahay! But as Mike says a Cliosport trackday and not 172 only.
Well worth looking at Bedford. Most of their days include a lot of use of their cars which is expensive in terms of hardware and instructors. Theyve got to be competitive surely, and if not theres another outfit called RMA who do lots of track days at bedord. Heres their schedule:
