    Exact same clutch I'm going for mate, meant to be bang on! You doing the flywheel at the same time or leaving it? Let me know how it feels when you do it

    I've been told to leave the flywheel as there's nothing wrong with the stock one. Need it to be drivable for every day use too, so can't go too 'race car'.

    As far as I've heard, flywheel only needs doing if it's already slipping but you wont know the condition of it till they open it up... yea I know what you mean, even tho mines only a weekend toy, I dont want it to be horrible to nip around in

    I've had no slippage yet and I'm running stage one. But I'm not really pushing the car as I'm trying to preserve the transmission so everything is good when the clutch is upgraded.

    I will have a chat with the guys on Saturday and see how much to private hire for the day so we can work out how many we need to come to make it worth while bearing in mind a normal track day is around 100 - 150 (although later it the year it can get cheaper.)

    Just had a chat with Blyton Park

    They don't do club meets at the weekend so its a weekday event only I am afraid.

    Cost is

    Summer Time £3,000 (Inclusive of VAT) But you will have to pay for food on the day if there is enough interest
    Winter Time £1750 (inclusive of VAT)

    So to get the cost down to £100 we would need 30 members to be happy to pay (i am afraid I dont think we will get that much interest)
    or 18 Members for the winter run.

    For the money we get the track for the day (9am - 4pm in the winter later in the summer)
    and includes full safety briefing / sighting laps, all safety services and Public liability insurance.

    You do not need insurance but if you have an accident the cost is down to you as on the track you don't claim off anybody else.

    I have asked what periods cover summer/winter and we can see if there is any interest.

    The other option (which is more likley to get people involved in my opinion) is to arrange a SCN Meet on a track day so we don't need all the numbers.

    Is this the same one that only lets 6 cars out at a time? Can we specify which cars we want to go out with? Eg, if we did your other option of turning up on a general track day. Could we specify we only want to go out with our own members?

    Yes this is the track that limit's numbers to 6 out on the track at any one time. Who goes out on the track with who is down to us as a club to organise, When I did a Novice day they put you in groups and each group got 20 minutes on the track then off (which is enough) then the next group out etc.

    If we do a normal track day no its an open pit lane so you go out when you want and if you dont like who is on the track you come off and go out again later.

    Normal car insurance policy does not cover track day in fact is normally specifies you are not covered. We could always talke to one of our sponsors and see if we could get a club cover for a one off event.

    Update, on a normal track day I will fill up at the start of the day and have to fill up again at lunch time but its down to how hard / often you drive the car.

    It's extra. Blyton Park is on the list.

    Do you use race fuel?

    I think for my first time out i'd like to pootle round and break the national speed limit a bit.

    No normal 99 Ron, you can use 100+ but you should have a map that supports it otherwise I dont know how much extra you get out of it.

    You can get over 100, I cant recall what i got last time but there are no speed limits and lots of run off so if you do go to fast and dont stop in time there is a nice safe verge to go on. They also have a cart track there for those who have a cart as well :)

    Ah right... I was wondering how you got around the cat. I looked at mapping on race fuel, but Milltek say to only use it max once per year to avoid damaging the cat.

    Dont use race fuel so not an issue but I was never told about that, I check it out if I ever get good enough to want to use it.

    Just had it confirmed that I’m working the weekend of the meet so definitely will not be able to make it

    Not happy with some work colleagues who could have helped but it’s the way it is.

    Hope you all have a great meet and I’ll be looking forward to catching up again soon.
