Hi all,

I am looking at renewing my licence for the new season and intend to compete in hillclimbs again. However, I do want to do my ARDS (or NDTC as they're apparently calling it now!) for the future and would like to switch to circuit racing at some point. I suppose I'm just thinking I'd be daft to renew the non race licence if there's a possibility of doing the test before the start of the season.

The new licence structure is a bit confusing. Which licence would I be eligible for after completing the ARDS and what does it cost? Secondly, I'd probably do the ARDS at Cadwell, which states that you use your own car. Am I right in reading it as you have to book a track day at full price AND book an ARDS test on top of that, as that is how it comes across on the MSVT website?

Ignore the cost of licence question, I've just realised that that's included in the Go Racing pack, doh! I've also figured out the booking and that you DON'T have to book a track day. Really should have spent more time on this before posting boxedin

Tbh, unless you are certain that you'd be racing this year I'd save your money and just get the RS Interclub licence (now £69).

Yeah, I don't actually think I will be unless something changes. I'm focused on the hillclimbing really. The car isn't setup with a cage, fire extinguishers or cut off switches at this point as I compete in road going usually. Probably best doing it next year.

When I worked for them you didn’t have to book the TD as well but it is advisable unless you are pretty familiar with the track.
