Me too. Hopefully we won't have a repeat of the stormy weather from last year. I think we're planning on doing this on the way up to Cumbria for the weekend 🏎️

I’m really interested in coming along this year. Would like to dip my toe into the world of track days and this seems like an ideal way to start. 

Does Curborough have a noise limit? My only concern with tracking my car is that it’s currently too loud!

It's a great little circuit and was also my first introduction to sprint/track driving, highly recommend it if you can. In terms of a noise limit, the club doesn't enforce one and I don't believe Curborough have ever monitored this for the clubs day either so you'll be fine 👍

Great, thanks for letting me know. Looking forward to it!

@T15EGR Hi - just wondered if there were any plans to rearrange this event? From what I can see Curborough is planning to reopen from July 1st - would be great to squeeze something in before the end of the summer if possible!

I'll keep you updated. I reckon we should be able to get something booked for August/September 😎
