  1. Under an hour from Calais and one of the safest circuits we have visited. With as much fun as you could wish for Abbeville is ideal for beginners and experienced drivers alike. With fantastic seaside resort of Le Touquet situated between Abbeville and Calais or the quaint local port of Saint Vallery there are plenty of places to visit for those who want to make a weekend of it. General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 100db static Noise Limits Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away. The car is then held at 3/4 of its maximum rev limit and the highest reading recorded is the cars recorded noise output for the day. A static limit of 105db is very high and very few cars have an issue with this. At 98db cars with a cat, std factory manifolds and exhausts will generally be ok. Anyone with a very loud exhaust/manifold should be careful. Drive by – This test is recorded at track side as the car is moving at track speed. Depending on the circuit the reading will be taken between right next to the track and up to 20 meters away. Cars with forced induction tend to have more issues with drive by, even though they tend to pass static tests as the s/c or turbo’s only kick in when run at speed. There are many things that affect drive by readings from wind direction, air temperature, how low the cloud cover is or even what line you are driving. Close Format: Open pit lane Format A sessioned event means that the day will be structured into usually 3 separate groups which take it in turns to go out on track for a set time, normally 20 minutes. Each car will be restricted to their group for the duration of the day. Drivers are generally allocated a group depending on their experience level or type of car. An Open Pit Lane event means that cars are free to go out onto the track when they choose (providing the circuit limit or our normally reduced limit has not been reached). Close Experience level: All levels Experience Levels All levels: Everyone Beginner: 1st ever track day Novice: 1-5 track days without a major circuit Intermediate: 5+ track days including a major circuit Advanced: Attended a number of open pit lane days at a range of circuits Close Important participant & vehicle information: Please read Participant & Vehicle Information Clothing must fully cover arms & legs. Crash helmets must be in good condition and suitable for circuit driving in a car.

  3. Just 1 hr from Calais and close to the historic town of Arras, Croix-en-Ternois was the first overseas circuit we visited and one that always guarantees a fun day of unlimited track time. Amazingly this circuit was used as an F1 test track until just a few years ago – the hair pins were ideal for Monaco as they are for an Elise, Speedster or Caterham. General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 105db static Noise Limits Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away.

  8. Arguably the most fun you can have at a ‘proper’ race circuit with your pants on! Ledenon is an anti-clockwise circuit providing a roller-coaster ride with steep crests and descents and a superb variety of swooping corners. Situated just a few miles from the ancient Roman towns of Nimes, Ales and Orange while the Pont du Gard is a few minutes away there really couldn’t be a circuit placed better to take a few days to relax and sight see. Open Pit Lane – what else would you want! The post Ledenon | Friday 19 August 2022 appeared first on Lotus on Track. View full event details here
  9. COMING SOON Zandvoort – Nestled in the sand dunes just a stones throw from the beach and a short drive from Amsterdam this famous circuit is arguably one of the best in Europe. In an Elise it’s up there with Spa. Formula One returned in 2021, the same year LoT visited Zandvoort for the 15th consecutive year, running 3 great days. Spa Francorchamps – Our final day of 2022 in Belgium. If this day’s anything like the previous 9 November days in Spa we’re in for a treat – the last 5 years in particular were great, dry, sunny days – not a single red flag on the November 2021 day as example.

  14. Set in the Cotswolds Castle Combe is often named as the ‘prettiest village in England.’ That’s the tourism side done now moving on to the race circuit ? With nearly 2 miles of wide track and just 12 cars on circuit Combe gives a great track/car ratio, giving all drivers plenty of space. We’re running the day in semi-open pit lane format as we did at Combe in 2020 & 2021 – rather than put you in set groups you can queue up when you like. The day is being limited to just 28 cars rather than 36 if sessioned. General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 100db static Noise Limits Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away. The car is then held at 3/4 of its maximum rev limit and the highest reading recorded is the cars recorded noise output for the day. A static limit of 105db is very high and very few cars have an issue with this. At 98db cars with a cat, std factory manifolds and exhausts will generally be ok. Anyone with a very loud exhaust/manifold should be careful. Drive by – This test is recorded at track side as the car is moving at track speed. Depending on the circuit the reading will be taken between right next to the track and up to 20 meters away. Cars with forced induction tend to have more issues with drive by, even though they tend to pass static tests as the s/c or turbo’s only kick in when run at speed. There are many things that affect drive by readings from wind direction, air temperature, how low the cloud cover is or even what line you are driving. Close Format: Semi Open Pit Lane Format A sessioned event means that the day will be structured into usually 3 separate groups which take it in turns to go out on track for a set time, normally 20 minutes. Each car will be restricted to their group for the duration of the day. Drivers are generally allocated a group depending on their experience level or type of car.

  15. Set in the Cotswolds Castle Combe is often named as the ‘prettiest village in England.’ That’s the tourism side done now moving on to the race circuit ? With nearly 2 miles of wide track and just 12 cars on circuit Combe gives a great track/car ratio, giving all drivers plenty of space. We’re running the day in semi-open pit lane format as we did at Combe in 2020 & 2021 – rather than put you in set groups you can queue up when you like. The day is being limited to just 28 cars rather than 36 if sessioned. General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 100db static Noise Limits Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away. The car is then held at 3/4 of its maximum rev limit and the highest reading recorded is the cars recorded noise output for the day. A static limit of 105db is very high and very few cars have an issue with this. At 98db cars with a cat, std factory manifolds and exhausts will generally be ok. Anyone with a very loud exhaust/manifold should be careful. Drive by – This test is recorded at track side as the car is moving at track speed. Depending on the circuit the reading will be taken between right next to the track and up to 20 meters away. Cars with forced induction tend to have more issues with drive by, even though they tend to pass static tests as the s/c or turbo’s only kick in when run at speed. There are many things that affect drive by readings from wind direction, air temperature, how low the cloud cover is or even what line you are driving. Close Format: Semi Open Pit Lane Format A sessioned event means that the day will be structured into usually 3 separate groups which take it in turns to go out on track for a set time, normally 20 minutes. Each car will be restricted to their group for the duration of the day. Drivers are generally allocated a group depending on their experience level or type of car. An Open Pit Lane event means that cars are free to go out onto the track when they choose (providing the circuit limit or our normally reduced limit has not been reached). Close Experience level: All levels Experience Levels All levels: Everyone Beginner: 1st ever track day Novice: 1-5 track days without a major circuit Intermediate: 5+ track days including a major circuit Advanced: Attended a number of open pit lane days at a range of circuits Close Important participant & vehicle information: Please read Participant & Vehicle Information Clothing must fully cover arms & legs.
