Webber45 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

I have 4 cars - one boring, one slow, one to nice and too big an engine (on my licence) to compete and my sprint car.

I sprint and hilclimb - slowly! I sued to do National B Rallys but gave up

I don't hthink I've done a proper track day but I've done test days instead.

git should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I am Mark.
Live in the Midwest USA.
Track days for the last 11 years with the VW,BMW,Porsche, Lotus and highspeed roadcourse sprints.
Autox(US style) since I bought a '77 Rabbit(Golf) in 1983.

Current garage vermin:
1, 2001 Zetec powered Birkin S3 se7en clone.
2, '91 BMW M3.
3, '83 GTI (GOLF) with 2.0l conversion.

As soon as the Greed, speculation, and the lack of US Lotus dealer ethics wanes away, I hope to own a Federal Lotus Elise and cut the stable down to 2 cars.

Mods so far:

Uprated suspension (need to drop the car 40mm
Anti roll bar !!!!!!
Induction kit
Twin carb upgrade

Any advise welcome.

stuartcmorrison should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Hi I'm Stuart, a 12 year old kid in a 38 year old body & feeling evryone of those 38 years after tonights game of footy. I live in Redditch, Worcestershire & until recently had spent my entire working life in aerospace engineering mostly as a development technician, I have now escaped & spend my days developing properties.

After my teens I was never particularly interested in cars (had a spell with bikes including some track days) but rather strangly I've recently found myself watching & recording loads of motor racing off sky tv, then started talking to some friends who do autograss, browsing the internet, looked into Caterham Academy for 2006 (2005 already full), bought Autosport & subscribed to Circuit Driver all in the space of about 3 weeks.

Anyway I decided 2006 was to long to wait to get on track & after looking at the attendee lists on easytrack & seeing the diversity in machinary I was satisfied that my standard Mini Cooper was good enough for trackdays & fully intended to enrol on the Mallory Park event on 6th November.

Then last Saturday I read about this Honda Civic called the Type R, I had a test drive on Monday & tomorrow (....is that the time, actually later today) the Cooper is being chopped in, unfortunatly I've got to to run around in a Civic S demonstrator for a couple of weeks while they sort out my leather interior.

The plan now is to take delivery of my new Type R, run it in & get my first (car) track day in before the end of november, in the meantime I'll keep browsing looking at Nobles, Ultimas, Radicals, XTR's, Caterhams etc & of course getting on the forum.

Cheers, Stuart.

kruse should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Just joined this forum. I have been racing the last 32 years, both Rally and on track. Now I run a driving technique and track day company in my spare time www.activedriving.dk I'm located in Denmark close to Copenhagen. Cars Subaru Impreza turbo and a Alfasud TI from 1980. The Alfa is a full equiped racecar, but engine is under rebuild. This has now taken me several years and in the meantime the Impreza is used as trackday car.

Mayhem in a Mk3 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Hi, I'm Mark, I've never done a trackday yet, but I've been interested in them for a few years. I'm mainly interested in older cars, I've got an '85 Escort Cabriolet on the drive at the moment, but I don't know wether to get an XR4x4 to use on the track. I'm just getting all the generic things I'll need (seats, harnesses etc) and then I'll get the car sorted in March. To be honest I don't know how good I'll be at this game coz the missus says that I drive like Miss Daisy usually!!

Hi, I'm Jim. Lapsed Marshal, Rescue Crew & MSA Instructor.

Due to work and family committments I've done very little in the last two Years. Having previously driven the majority of the UK Circuits in a VAN! (Rescue Vehicle)and attended a fair few track Days as part of the Safety Crew with 'Wheeltorque'.

I have wonderful memories of visiting some fantastic Tracks across Europe. Spa, the 'Ring'(Nordschliefe), Dijon, Mas Du Clos, Issoire, Clermont Ferrand to name a selection. The experience of driving round these tracks, even in Course/Safety cars is totally unforgettable.

Have been pondering the Idea of a Track Day car for some time now and thougts about taking the plunge this Year, with a 205 Pug or Astra GTE.

Have previously done stupid things on Rallies with various Escort and Fiesta setups so I think I know where I'm going and Initial setup will be Safety kit then Suspension and brakes to get the handling sorted, before any power mods.

Also visiting the States this year and the Richard Petty experience is already booked! Can't wait!

Regards, to you all, stay safe out there.....
