    Has any one thought of taking part in this event?

    It's a track day for the novice/intermediate with I believe instructors on hand to help you improve your skills.

    Cadwell Park 14th. June.

    I think this promises to be a good day for those who are new to tracks/track days, from what I am led to believe the instruction will be very intensive in the morning with a little free running in the afternoon. You would not need a track prepped car for this at all and Cadwell Park is bloomin good fun.

    I've just received this picture from a friend and thought this might inspire someone to get out and have a go!

    Some further info: -

    Cadwell Park.
    Thursday, 14th August.
    £200 per entry.

    'On Track' with the BMW Car Club.
    A sessioned day for novices and intermediate drivers in road going cars that are driven to the circuit.
    Very low numbers with a maximum of 15 cars on track (usually its 30).
    Headed up by our own Mr Chris Rossiter with 10 very experienced BMWCC instructor/guides working in small groups of 4 or 5 cars.
    No track or race prepared cars here.
    No trailered cars either.
    This is a full on day of instruction combined with free lapping.
    Perfect for the road car driver that wants to drive quickly without worrying about holding up the racers!
    It's the kind of trackday your car would choose for you.
