You'll get enough !


Went on my first a few weeks ago (had my 7, 4 months)

It was great !!! about 6 sessions of 20 minutes (well needed rests between)

Buy some cheap Booties (£35, Karting ones) much nicer to drive in

Helmet £75-300 +

Huge grin for a month £Free

Good luck (take it easy on first few session, you do want to drive home!)

You'll need mirrors for sure. 'cause I'm going to be there.


Are you in the "novice" group Dave, or the "copmpetition licence holders" group. Bit of a dilemma there.....



But will Aves, Count and the rest of the North Kent possy be there??


I heard Chris Clark will be in the paddock, but not actually entered as he prefers looking at peoples engines when they are stationary!



Geoff - Cheque and form have gone out today!

Sorry Westie, 7 Club driving days are for Lotus and Caterham Sevens only.

You are welcome as a spectator/passenger of course.


This will be a new circuit for me so any tips you can pass on about banks and the like...............

I plan to be there.


Arnie, surpirsed you think AVES will be there, given that evening after the trackday, you and I are going to be at his wedding reception. I'm pretty sure Mrs Aves to be will not be a happy camper if a certain Blue VX is blatting around Lydden on the day.

Mine's in the post tonight Geoff for the 'mid' class (limited track experience/modified cars), can't recall what colour that was though ?


So Arnie are we in the same class then.................if I need mirrors to see you it presumes you're behind me *biggrin*..............or lapping me ☹️.....................and before anyone says anything I know it's not a race in any event.

I did mention it to her. As the Wedding isn't 'till 4 I reckoned that I could put in a few laps & push off about 2. Firmly vetoed.


As tradition says that I can't see her or communicate from about 6pm Friday night I reckon I'll still make it, as what she doesn't know won't hurt.


Mums the word though & if I stuff it I'll need a lift to Penshurst.
