Hullavington Airfield Track Day - 9th April

As above, a FULL DAY open pit lane track day. Price would come down the more people that are intrested, its currently at 109, which tbh is a bargain. Airfields a pretty cool place, go up there quite often 'out of hours' and have some fun, the straight they use is suitable for pretty silly speeds tbh so theres that aspect as well. Idea of the track lay out is below, sure its not a circuit style track, but you are paying 100 less.

We'd be going on a track day, not accademy day - so no time taken up by tuition.



Copied from said page -

Hullavington is an MOD airfield now occupied by the army and also used for Glider training.

It is in very good condition and has lots of top quality tarmac. Our track layout has a great mix of corners, using the huge amount of space available and long straights with speeds in excess of 100 mph possible in most cars. This is a fantastic airfield venue, not to be missed by any enthusiastic driver! We also hold some of our Driver Training Academy days at Hullavington.

The noise testing rules at Hullavington are 100 dB(A) at 0.5 metres and at 4500 rpm, for motorcycle engines cars we require this to be at 3/4 of maximum rpm. This rule will be enforced rigidly, so if you have any doubts consider adding extra silencing. Please also note that due to a number of reasons competition cars can not be allowed at these events.

There is a petrol station within 1 mile of the track with Super Unleaded available and there are plenty of local Hotels and B&B's.

Hullavington is very well situated being only 2 miles off J17 of the M4 near Chippenham in Wiltshire.
FYI - Petrol station only does 97 ron, not 99. For all you sat nav geeks post code is SN14 (something else).

Im new to track days.
Take your car there for 8, safety briefing at 9, track time starts at 10 and finishes at 4 with no break for lunch.

As its open pit lane, not sessioned there is a limit of (example) 10 cars out on track. If there is 9 currently out you can go straight out, if there is 10 you que in the pit lane till one comes in then get let out. Once your out you can stay out for as long as you want/dare.
