Customer Testimonials: 

“Thanks for a fantastic event, I’ll definitely be booking up for 2016, both track time and more tuition.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day, thanks again to the whole Magnitude team, all the marshals and Lotus for allowing us to use such a fantastic facility”

Dominic Mitchell (Caterham 7 Classic)

“Thanks we had an amazing time! Please thank your whole team for such a professionally run track day at such an awesome track & facility, thanks again!

Larry. Wendy and Joe Burke (Mazda MX5 MK1)
“I booked in to go and spectate yesterday and had a lovely time in the Norfolk sunshine. If anyone is nervous about taking their car on track because it is their pride and joy then you would not need to worry at this event. It was a well organised event and it is focused more around people enjoying their cars around an iconic track appose to setting the fastest lap time. The staff space the cars release on track so there is no pressure from someone coming up behind you quickly and pressuring you to drive beyond your limits. The only pressure it appeared was the pressure that you place on yourself to carry and better line and more speed. Martin Donnelly was there offering instruction too. How can you get better instruction that a ex F1 driver.

The reason why I went to have a look is because I have always been worried about taking my 40 year old Europa around a track (exception of parade laps). I have attended other track days and there seems to be more modern cars with inexperienced drivers bombing passed you and then almost barrel rolling their cars around the bends. My Europa is my pride and joy and I never fancied some idiot crashing into the side or rear of it. I will however happily sign up to this event if hosted in the future as the participants seemed to get what it was all about (maybe a very good brief at the beginning of the day before then event at a guess).”
