    A return visit to the full 2700 meter long Clastres circuit with its mix of twisties from the original shorter circuit and sweeping turns and long straight from the new full circuit. Similar to Abbeville for Safety, Clastres is flat with good visibility and decent run off.

    General circuit information: HERE

    Noise limit: 95db 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.

    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).

    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 Valery 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.

    This package includes: The 3 track days plus hotel accommodation – Monday to Saturday.  Accommodation will be for 5 nights.

    As soon as we are in a position to share the 3rd circuit we will. Those who have attended Frolic before, we are more than happy for you to book now or when ready. Those who haven’t attended a Frolic might prefer to wait until the 3rd circuit and final dates / travel details are shared.

    The Lotus Test Track at Hethel was completely refurbished and updated in 2011 when it was opened by Nigel Mansell. The circuit is 2.2 miles long and with its run-off areas is situated in approximately 30 acres of the 50 acre Group Lotus site. Built to put Lotus’ high performance cars through their paces the circuit incorporates a series of bends, hairpin corners and straights providing an excellent venue for honing driving skills.

    For the vast majority of the last 16 years Lotus on Track have been the only club/tdo running track days at Hethel, ensuring Lotus owners can still drive their own cars where they were built.

    Price includes light breakfast and snack lunch with coffee all day 😊

    General circuit information: HERE

    Noise limit: 105db static & 95db drive by 20m

    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.

    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).

    We’ve run an evening at Donington Park for the last 6 or 7 years.

    Donington offers the best value evening track day in the UK as track time runs from 17.30-20.30 – 3 hours.

    We’re sharing the day with the circuit owner MSV. Lotus on Track will start the evening with a 30 minute session that includes the sighting laps, MSV will then run their own 30 minute session before LoT have a 20 minute session which will alternate with MSV.

    If all goes to plan LoT members will drive: 17.30-18.00, 18.30-18.50, 19.10-19.30, 19.50-20.10 – so one and a half hours of track time! Probably more than you’d use if open pit lane.

    The circuit is one of the truly great circuits in Europe with a mix of fast and slow corners and with one of the most famous sections in the world, the Craner Curves.

    After our hugely successful days at Donington the last couple of summers 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. If all goes to plan that’s 7 sessions over the day.

    * Zolder has a procedure where all cars are fitted with a transponder so that any car that breaks the noise limit can be identified. As with most circuits if you break the limit you will be given one more chance only. Although the limit is now higher than in previous years (98db vs 95db) we recommend that you have a cat fitted (this helps to lower noise), this is a legal requirement and you should check your exhaust is working properly.

    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.

    As with previous years in March we’re sharing the day with our friends at MGs-on-Track in addition to one other club. This means LoT members will drive 1 x 20 minute session per hour and 7 sessions over the day. Our friends at MGs on Track will have one session and another club will have the final session.

    Strictly Lotus on Track club members only in accepted vehicles.

    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.

    Format: Sessioned (3 x 20mins per hour)

    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).

    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.
