Just a quick question, trying to help with organising some track days. Would anyone be interested in participating in any in 2015? more than likely going to be around the Edinburgh area and will be similar to the 22b/MLR Sprint type events where it's one car on track, much better IMO.

Not many people on here into driving their Scoobs on the track, more into polishing and posing.

If I was lucky enough to have :

a) a spare one
b) any driving skill whatsoever

then I'd love to have a go.

As it is, I'll stay home polishing my only car while you show us the way Wink Laughing

Girl!!

This is my only car and I'm taking it racing next year Laughing 22b and SLS.....provided I can afford a roll cage and seats.

It's awesome fun, don't be scared of taking it out on track, imagine going out on the roads to Stanhope with no other cars on the road and no limits, it's fecking brilliant.

It gets as expensive as you want it too, plenty fun can be had in a mildy modded road car...

We got abit carried away with our car.

think am gonna have a go at a sprint next year.
thing i found with a trackday I got a bit bored after a while just driving round. at least if its against the clock your gonna push it even if it is just for one lap at a time. probs less stressful on the car aswell.

That's the sort of track days that's being arranged mate, against the clock and similar to a sprint setup

Here's a video from my last one, it's a bit competitive

Track days are good for seat time and making changes to cars,

Sprints are ideal for keeping you entertained. Where is the vid from Alan ?

Yeah was second to a lad with a hawkeye, extra torque out the corners had me beat. Plus the Lagg on my turbo didn't help matters. All sorted now tho, hopefully get the motor back tomorrow with a new heart Very Happy
