Morning everyone,

With one Run already under our belt and our Postponed Early Spring Run resecheduled for Sunday 18th March, I hereby announce a Brand New Event for 2018, the PHEA Spring Track Day.

Acting as a prelude to our annual Track Event held in the summer, this will be on Tuesday 20th March as part of an MSV Trackday at Snetteron, Norfolk - MAP LINK HERE

Priced at just £129 for the 300 Circuit, our resident track day guru "fasteddys" has been able to organise a PHEA group booking discount of 10%, subject to numbers.

While we won't get the hospitality of our main summer Track Event, this cheaper (and discounted) Spring Track Day in the company of your fellow PHEA members will be the perfect taster for our Track Event later in the year.

To obtain the discount code, you MUST please contact fasteddys through his profile HERE

All you then need to do is book over the phone with MSV quoting this discount code.
You can find their contact details, as well as all information for this track day on the MSV Website HERE
Signing on is from 7:30am, with the driver briefing at 8:30am. The day runs until 5pm.

So if you fancy an early-season track day with your PHEA friends, please sign up today driving
Your car's not ready or you don't wish to drive? No problem, we'll down there all day, so please feel free pop by to say "hello" and to spectate. It'll be great to see you smile

Once booked, simply pop your name down on the list below smile

See you there!

I paid yesterday. anyone else being hardcore and staying at the track the night before?

eddy, do we have the Archie Gemmill centre again? It'd be nice to hide from the wind and rain wink
if not, we can always hide in the party bus!

Hello everyone, I'm here already. We have a garage so I will find out which one it is and park in front tomorrow morning. Mines the massive transit van with stickers on it. Can't miss the race car! This might be a bit optimistic but I brought the wet tyres and also the slicks smile

well that was fun smile

maybe in summer the slicks will be more forgiving! as a shakedown test, it's highlighted that i need a much bigger and more secure oil catch can, and the wastegate flange needs welding.....how many days until spa? frown

That was a LOT of fun. Thanks to Eddy for the laps at the end of the day, Eddy, it’s official, you’re faster than me, 1.5 secs faster to be exact. Good laps mate.

The Pirate is way quicker than the GT86 Cossie, but not quite as chuckable and therefore slightly less fun, also, Snetterton needs a manual gearbox car, not a DSG.

Must start the hunt for a track focused car soon.

Yes, great fun playing with you Mike and Andy in the dancing Celica. Thanks for coming guys, it would not have been the same without you

Mike, perhaps we should have swapped cars and compare the times wink

Also thanks to all that popped down to act as ballast and join in the banter.

So who is up for the main July trackday event now then?

What a fantastic, fun day out!
Thank you to everyone who popped down to say hello and of course to fasteddy for organising smile

I had a great day spectating and chatting with new people as well as the usual suspects thumbup
Then, of course, the enjoyment of hopping in the "fasteddy" S3, Mike's Golf R and finally Andy's Celica.
Thanks must go to Andy for my first ever experience of spinning in car on track. Such was your generosity, your offered two more occasions wink

My summary of the passenger experience:
S3 is fast and raw.
R is refined and bloody rapid.
Celica is a stripped out, glorious track car whether it's going in the right direction or not hehe

After each pax session, I was beaming from ear to ear!

Roll on to our Summer Track Event in July drivingbounce
