    How are these trackdays structured? open pitlane? different categories driving together?
    Price?

    Would be coming from Belgium...so have to keep all those extra costs in mind too...

    Wow, coming from belgium, now that is commitment :coolsteer). The days are open pit lane all day with a break for lunch. Everyone is allowed on the track - no categories, some of the tracks limit the number on at one time but in reality you only have to wait a short while to get on.

    I will look up the costs for you and post them later.

    Had a fantastic day out today at Snetteron today at the BMWCC Trackday, another set of EBC yellow stuff pads bite the dust :head:, the weather all day has been absolutely fantastic we even had sunshine. Also had my first ride in a ///M Coupe :D

    Sat in my B&B after a great day at Cadwell Park, the rain threatened at a few points in the day but did not come to anything. Three Z3 roadsters on track today, a couple of ///M Coupes and a mixture of all things BMW.

    Tried out my home made fog light brake ducts today, result they really do work, this as well as using EBC Blue Stuff pads all round give me brakes that inspired confidence.

    Thought I would do a bit of aero testing whilst on track today :) .

    Just to add to Brian's comment the day at Cadwell though a long time ago was awesome I was one of the other Zed's and we really made them sing. so much so that as I have sticky tires I hung with Brians bigger powered car really well but realised that I need to change car for my next track day. As you will see I am doing something about that. Forthcoming events 5th October.

    some Friends and I have done other track days but the ones we prefer are the BMW Car Club ones (and Steve Hewson & Phil Lee of Track-Action online, Steve is one of the BMW CC instructors)
