RSRSpa Premium Trackdays 2016

Based on what I've read of RSR on other forums, there's no way I'd do a track day with them. It's basically a free for all with racing cars using it as a cheap test day (even more so than they do on track days with other TDOs) and I'm not risking my pride and joy in that sort of environment.

Well I prefer to drive between licensed race car drivers than between inexperienced testosteron bombs, that won't let you pass because a GT3 is per definition faster than any Lotus. :P 

Just check your mirrors and let them pass. But I understand it's a bit frightening to see race cars on slicks overtake you at rediculous speeds.

I don't have a problem with GT3 drivers actually, they usually circulate at about the same speed as me and they are at least driving their pride and joy and so don't take many risks.  I do have a problem with racing drivers on trackdays, they don't give a shit about what they are driving as they don't own it, are normally timing despite the express rules to the contrary and overtake in braking zones at the best of times (because they are timing). Couple that with RSRs stupid overtaking rules, I'm just not interested. I will stick with LoT for places like spa.

Hehe, I understand, the problem arises when you are cornering faster than the supercar driver. You cannot overtake them cause they are faster on the straights. 

UK trackday rules are great for the novice trackday driver as they create a very safe environment. But while you're progressing on track and start clocking laptimes, you'll see that overtaking on the right is often the much more logical option. 

So I'm happy there is a flavour of trackday options with different rules.. at least we have lots of choice nowadays. :)

Another problem with sharing a track day with 'race cars' is they break down a lot causing multiple track closures while they are recovered!
