Hi all,

Time to get the ball rolling with the first of many (hopefully!) UK trackdays in 2010 - It's with our friends at TrackAction-Online again, at Brands Hatch (Indy circuit) on Friday 5th February.

It's an open pitlane format trackday, 105dB is the noise limit, and I'm sure Steve will pop along soon with track time details.

He's also sorted us a good price again @ 125 per car/driver, 35 for extra drivers, 10 for passengers, and 20 for a garage. There's also free instruction available for any drivers that want it.

And as a nice touch, if we can get 10+ bookings, he'll throw a couple of garages in for free.

Payment to be made here: http://cart.trackaction-online.co.uk and although that shows a price of 150, if you add your name to this thread before payment, myself or Steve will PM you the discount code.

Any questions, by all means please ask.

Hi fellas and thanks for shouting up to come along to another one of our days out :cool:

We will, as usual, be limiting numbers to make sure that queueing is kept to a minimum so booking sooner rather than later would be good. Having said that, I would guess you'll get away with early Jan.

I'll PM each of you the booking info and discount codes.

It shouldn't be though, as Tom and I helped him take the engine and crane back to his dads place over a month ago. The lot is literally sitting infront of the car. Eug is just a lazy ****.

Get ya names down folks :agree: :D

You've been whinging on about a lack of southern location trackdays of late, so here's an ideal chance for the 'locals' (and of course, anyone else) to blow the winter dust off your cars.

There will be a Spa + 'Ring trip come Easter/May time (details to follow), and hoping to squeeze in a Snetterton trackday in-between Brands & that as well. If not, for sure there'll be a summertime Snetterton trackday :agree:

Same as t-cups first outing? spectating not an issue ? and full use of pit lane? hopefully no exploding volvos two garages down... and no hubs having to be removed from old trusty ?:laugh:

Might save my pennies for the Spa/Ring trip...now that be a good shakedown for the 2ltr conversion :D

But I'll pop down and spectate for this though, its only a 2hr drive :smokin:...:wasntme:...

Mart
23-12-2009, 00:12
Suhki, for the sake of a ton & pony, you'll be missing out mate, and if there is any shakedown 'testing' to be done, surely you'd rather carry that out at a 'local' track where it's not gonna cause you a headache getting the car back home (should something go pete tong), as opposed to getting it home from across the channel.

Aii mate, it'll bring back happy memories of that eventful day :D

No prob's with spectating, and pit-garages will be available; either a score a pop, or a couple of them for gratis if we can muster together 10+ bookings.

I want to do the Spa/Ring trip dude, without question.

I'm not suggesting for one minute that the trip will be the first big outing if you will after the conversion...I'm not that stupid :D

In between now and April, I have a wedding to pay for, a substantial 'comittment' as you can imagine...I'd rather fill the car up, drive down and catch up with everyone...saves me a few quid and keeps the wife-to-be sweet about me ****ing off with you lot to Germany & Belgium for a few days :smokin: :agree:

Really cant wait to get the Cup car sorted for Brands, need to bleed the brakes and sort the cooling out as i havent touched it since ND, might need to invest in some "road legal" tyres for the 15" wheels.

Can you PM the code please!:)

It's still off the range of any forecasts that don't involve a crystal ball but the predictions for a couple weeks from now are showing much warmer so I'm hoping to have no ice or snow...........

We are down to the last dozen spaces for this one now so if you want to come along please book it sooner rather than later!

coombe is nightmare and they pass there and oulton...rear exit on the cup....:eek:..;)

its not ideal running a rear exit on a cup, and most tracks will ignore the sidey even if it does fail and they will move the sensor so it does pass. but one day if you get a strict marshall it could ruin your day. thats why i went rear exit.

T-Cup had no problems at Brands.

If you want to play it safe, buy a dB insert or two from Tweeks. I've got a couple in my garage somewhere if you want me to bring them along.

*Yellow*
11-01-2010, 19:20
Matt, probably going to have to put a silencer/ box in, had too many warnings now.

The db was ok when I bought the car in standard cup form, its only since we upped the power its got noisier. Defo worth bringing bag tricks to quieten it down if it dont make the limit.
Depends on the guy with the noise meter, some are ok, some are not.:(

Last time out, we modded with wire wool, guaze and jubilee clip to pass the static noise test. Melted it on the first full on session, so was back to a full on sidey and no probs on track.:cool:

Brand have never openly tested for noise on cars i think they pull you in if the car is like a fog horn...................i've used the original 2 inch side exit loads of times at brand etc, without any problems the only side exit that has caused any issue on track days is the Ktec ... TK had a rare one....was it a sidewinder or something.???again 2.5 inch, one piece, mega noise.....:burnrubber:


http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/products/ProductDetail.asp?cls=MSPORT&pcode=JETU935130

these work wonders on the ktec etc.........had one my self on the k tec no noticable loss of power and alwas below the limits i think i scored 97- 99 with them....

cheers guys ,were doing some prep work at my friends garage this weekend so i may measure on his system and go from there, i think demon tweeks do silencers etc ill check their website, i want to do all the circuits in my guide over the next few years so ill have to get it right soon, steve h says its 106db at brands so ive something to aim for, what with environmental pressure nowadays is only going to get worse with regards to how much more strict they get i guess, cheers for all the input guys and thanks for the offer bill...:).

Combe used to be 100B, and really made a big thing of sticking to it, even half a decibel over and they'd send you back to the pits. I think they're getting pressure off the locals, like most tracks

They have been since last year.... I've been pulled on it on two trackdays there now... they've been noise testing in the pitlane at the assembly area before letting you out..., the devil side exit is usually around 104-106db with the standard turbo.. you can get it down to 103 with a db insert, if you aren't running a standard T2 with a side exit would personally have something on standby just in case... :crap:

It's 105db max at 3/4 revs static. as far as I know they have no testing once you are on track but these things are getting stricter every year :mad:

For anyone wanting to stop locally the night before we've got a deal with the hotel that's right next door. 60 for single B&B or 70 for two of you.

This is at the THISTLE BRANDS HATCH (http://www.thistle.com/hotels/united_kingdom/dartford/thistle_brands_hatch/index.html?tmcampid=11&tmad=c&tmplaceref=GGL_THUK_000021110), we have got some rooms on hold for the Thursday night so to book one please phone Stephanie Keep on 01474 855 700 quoting TAOL040210. After 21st Jan they will no longer be reserved so it's just down to if they have any rooms left - to check phone the same number and quote "Track Rate of 60 BB" to get the reduced price. At the moment there is a block of rooms reserved for another function on the Friday night so they currently have no availability but if they are not confirmed by the 22nd Jan they will become available as well for anyone who wants to stop the night after the event.

They have been since last year.... I've been pulled on it on two trackdays there now... they've been noise testing in the pitlane at the assembly area before letting you out..., the devil side exit is usually around 104-106db with the standard turbo.. you can get it down to 103 with a db insert, if you aren't running a standard T2 with a side exit would personally have something on standby just in case... :crap:

Steve, do you know if we'll have access in and out of the paddock area all day. Basically, is the tunnel going to be open? :D. I've been there before when it's been shut for some reason.....

I'm not on track, so I'd rather not fight the rush hour traffic to get there, but I want to park in the paddock in my support vehicle, with loads of spares :wasntme:

I assume it will open be as the alternative is to stop play whenever someone needs to get in or out but I've asked them to confirm.

Thanking you very muchly :agree:

Yea, the alternative isn't the best idea. I've been there when the only access to/from the paddock was allowed at lunch, or if there was a red flag, like at Mallory. Not ideal really :(

Ive got a couple with the seats for Jeezbus too, and a few (but not all) of the bolts, im sure between us we can muster a full set!:agree:

He will most likely need the captive nuts held in the square washer that goes in the x-member at the front of the seat mounting points too if you have any Matt ? :)
