i have just cast an eye over your coments about tax mot insurance etc why! your not covering anything your insurance is void on a race circuit you would have to get specific track day cover and what would you want to tax or mot it for whos going to stop you on a race track and what if you crashed your just wasting time and money for no gain! its a track day just enjoy it

the reason why your should be mot'ed at least is - if your car breaks down every 5 minutes, causing a red flag every 5 minutes to tow you back to the pits..everyone is going to be very annoyed at you for wasting their track time. I know an mot isn't a guarentee that its going to stay in one piece, but it stands a better chance than a car without an mot and is a bag of old rusty nails.

Tax and insurance are not important. However..if you take your car uninsured onto a track, it makes you think twice about pushing that hard that you end up falling off the track. But, you do run the risk of some idiot who doesn't care and ends up crashing into you. Take insurance out if you really want, but then if you insure your road car, crash it, how you going to get home? how you going to get to work the next day? etc...

As a track day marshal can I add another point - towing eyes. Please ensure your pride and joy has one (at either end!).

If you breakdown you will need a tow back to the pits. Being towed around the track puts little strain on the towing eye, and most will get you back without problem.

But if you end up in the gravel you will need a strong tow point - that gravel fights back!

For road cars you may have a point fixed by the maker. Sometimes these are the screw-in type. If so either fit it before you go out, or at the least know how it works! Ensure it does screw in - the thread works and it is the right one for the car. The hole is normally covered by a lid on the bodywork - this keeps the grit out and stops the hook jamming when it is fitted. If you go into the gravel it may collect rubbish - so tape it/cover it fit the hook first.

Does your pride and joy have a low bumper/body kit? Does it cover the tow point? Check before you need to use it!

If you fall off and delay the day because we can't recover your car without damage we will inform those cooling their heels in the pits! Be warned!!

I hope this will help some people, we have tried to make it as comprehensive as possible, so that we can offer help to people who choose not to use our trackday services!
