  5. A return to our regular March day at the home of British Motorsport. Running from the heritage pits we’re using the full 3.66 mile Grand Prix circuit. This day, on the full GP circuit will be run in Open pit lane format operating from the Heritage Paddock. Strictly Lotus on Track club members only. General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 105db static & 102db drive by 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: Strictly 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. Crash helmets must be in good condition and suitable for circuit driving in a car.

  6. 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
  7. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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 the best – Spa, Dijon, Brands GP. In 2021 Zandvoort welcomed back the Dutch F1 Grand Prix. This day takes place just after GT World Challenge visits the circuit. Perfect for a long weekend in Amsterdam, Haarlam or just staying in the great seaside resort of Zandvoort. Just a couple of hours from the EuroTunnel at Calais or a short drive from the Hook of Holland for those who fancy a longer crossing from the East of England. General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 88dB at 20meters & 105db 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: No beginners please 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. (Convertible/flip-up helmets are not permitted) ANY vehicle without a hard top or fixed roof will require occupants to wear full face helmets.

  17. We’re returning to the wonderful Bilster Berg after our 4 fantastic visits in 2016/17/19/20. As with the last couple of years we’ve been able to organise a Saturday evening that will hopefully allow members to either do the day as a one off or double up with our main Spa date on the following Monday. Note: This event is being run on Saturday afternoon/evening: 2pm-6pm – so 4 hours of open pit lane track time against an average of 7hrs on most days. Modelled on the likes of the Ascari Resort in Spain, the entire circuit has been designed from scratch by Hermann Tilke, the industry’s most experienced circuit architect. He is best known for renowned F1 circuits such as Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Malaysia, Istanbul, Shanghai and has now turned his hand to creating a New Nürburgring, “The natural ‘Nordschleife flair’ with high safety standards will continue to enthuse every driver. With various ideal lines, the corners allow for approximately identical lap times, while nature itself dictates the unmistakable signature of the test track.” It is not only the very special scenic-park-like ambiance which makes Bilster Berg so unique. The 4.2 kilometres long track has 19 bends, 44 crests and dips, more than 200 meters change in altitude and declines up to 26%. It truly is one of the great circuits in Europe. http://www.bilster-berg.de/ Video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llXQ-CUcn-Y General circuit information: HERE Noise limit: 101db static & 98db drive by * Noise Limits Static test – A noise meter is placed at a 45 degree angle to the exhaust outlet and 50cm away.

The circuit operate a transponder system to identify cars – we have discussed noise at the end of all 3 previous days and there were no concerns over our return. However, we will keep the number of cars low & control their type. Noise operates on a bucket system – so less cars means less noise – similar to Zandvoort.
