Track Day Advice?


Recommended Posts

With a name like mine I really should've got my Liz on the tracks years ago but I'm finally thinking of giving my Elise and outing...

What's it likely to cost and what other factors would I need to consider, ie wear of tyres, brake pads etc? Also what about insurance for the time spent on track, I know my road policy won't cover it, I'm guessing these's specialists but is it worth the additional cost?

All thoughts would be much appreciated

Ta.

ps I'm thinking Brands as it's close and I've always wanted to do a few laps there. :bounce:

Currently having an illicit affair with another marque, be back in the fold one day... B-)

Let me know when you're going, would be nice to say hello and I'm only 10 mins away (and it's our Brands meet this Thursday evening!).

When I was pit crew for an Exige last year at the Nurburgring 24 hour race the only consumables we planned to replace were tyres and fuel and that's for a whole 24 hours at race pace around the 'Ring. Check your tyre pressures, take a pump so you can drop them down before going out as they'll increase on track and just check the usual fluids, the Elise is a very capable and durable track car.

As for insurance, it's your shout but they're usually around £80-100 for the day with a 10% value of the car excess. Worth it for a huge off but expensive otherwise. Might be worth looking at an insurer that gives free trackdays eg REIS or CCI? Full members get discount and you'll get (with REIS) 4 free trackdays pa.

7.30 in the Kentagon 'til whenever you like. Turn up when you like, head off when you like, it's very relaxed :)
