  1. An autumn day at Europe’s best race circuit. No competition licence holders (this does not apply to those who had submitted registration forms for 7/6/21). General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 103db drive by - 15metres from edge of track & 107db 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: Intermediate & Advanced only 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.

  2. 19/4/2021 – We’ve been given the ok for this event to proceed today. However, the day will be split into 2 bubbles of 30 people in each. This means we can only accept the person booking the day on site – no passengers, spectators, 2nd drivers or essential helpers unfortunately. The day will be split into 2 groups running 30 mins each – so 30 mins on then 30 mins off. One of the best circuits in the UK and well worth the effort to visit for a weekend.

  4. Designed from scratch by former F1 driver Jonathan Palmer, there is nowhere else in the world like Bedford Autodrome. The venue has been purpose built for speed and space with vast run-off areas that provide optimum safety. Whilst there are several track configurations, with every kind of corner, there’s no motor racing at the Autodrome, so there’s no crowd-protecting safety barriers or concrete walls. We are using the 2.8 mile SEN circuit.

  5. Fondly nicknamed the ‘mini-Nürburgring’. Cadwell Park’s twisty and undulating nature, winding through open park and woodland, has marked it out as one of the best circuits in the country. Once discovered, it is often a firm favourite amongst those who visit. The perfect Lotus circuit? After our hugely successful days at Cadwell over the last couple of years we’ve taken another exclusive session on a day with MSV – the circuit owner. This means LoT members will drive 1 x 20 minute session per hour and 7 sessions over the day.

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.

  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 trialled at Combe in 2020 – 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, norm ally 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 trialled at Combe in 2020 – 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, norm ally 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 Driver & vehicle safety: Please read Participant & Vehicle Information Clothing must fully cover arms & legs.
