The guest allocation for Snetterton is now full, but there are still a few places available for Silverstone on 19th June. To register your interest, please let the Club office know by 15th May. 

Along with two other members and a kind of test-run, I was a guest of the Motorsport team at Brands Hatch - they did a great job looking after us. The visit was hosted by a specific member of the Caterham team, who will also be the host at Snetterton and Silverstone We watched the action on the track, had lunch with our host and all the competitors in the hospitality facility and spent quite a bit of time in the paddock watching the engineers fix cars that needed attention after incidents on track.

Hi Martin, I was one of the lucky ones to get a place for Snetterton on Saturday 21st.

Just wondered if there are any specifics to know about, start time, parking the Seven, that kind of thing.

I've bought the entry ticket to the circuit and raring to go.

Thanks

Now reporting back from a great day at Snetterton on Saturday. We were met by Scott Elliot, Caterham's Aftersales Operations Manager. He made us all feel very welcome, and was a great guide for the day.

Got an interesting tour of the paddock and garages, giving us an insight into the different class specifications. Watched an engine change in super quick time!

The racing was of course exciting as always, and good to be there for the two Academy groups having their first experience at proper racing.

Had a good lunch and an entertaining chat with Graham MacDonald, many thanks to all concerned.

Hi Alex - we are oversubscribed for the Silverstone meeting, so there will have to be a ballot. This will take place over the next few days and the results communicated shortly thereafter.

I was also at Snetterton, it a great day. We witnessed the race support team swop out an engine in around 2 hours.. and the racing was exciting I just don't have the budget.....or the talent come to that.

 

If you get to go to Silverstone your in for a treat.

Nice food and very good company.

 

Thank you to all.
