BLYTON PARK NOVICE TRACKDAY
Friday 22nd September 2023
What: Exclusive Caterham and Lotus 7 Club “Novices Day” – with extended novice-friendly briefing session and extensive (free of charge) one-to-one instruction.
Where: Blyton Park is located approximately five miles North of Gainsborough in Lincolnshire and is one mile from the village of Blyton on the B1205 (Kirton Road). For more details visit www.blytonpark.co.uk
As a result of the record numbers of Novice drivers attending our Club Trackdays last year we are delighted to offer another chance to participate in a Club Novice Trackday at Blyton Park. This circuit is ideally located for members who live in or north of the Midlands (but worth a visit from further afield!), Blyton Park offers a variety of track driving challenges in a safe and welcoming environment. Blyton is great fun in a Seven with a good mix of high-speed running and technical sections.
This Club-exclusive event is aimed specifically at members who class themselves as a novice or newcomer, or those who may need a comprehensive refresh after a substantial period away from any track activity. It will be ideal for those who want to get on track with the Club in a friendly, supportive and structured environment. Blyton Park is a safe and well-equipped venue with lots of space, an easy-to-learn layout and sufficient technical challenge to match growing levels of confidence as the day goes on.
This event is limited to just 21 cars to maintaining a superb ‘instructor to driver’ ratio. Following the extended briefing session, track activity will start with members divided into groups, with pre-allocated instructor slots. Later in the day we will move to a controlled Open Pit Lane approach – with no more than twelve cars on track at any one time and plenty of one-to-one instruction being available throughout.
The day is subject to a 95dB(A) drive by noise limit.
The cost to participate is set at £175 for a car and main driver; an additional driver (who must be a Club member) will cost £65 and passengers will be welcome at £5 per head.
Definitely a date to book and enjoy!
