Hi All,

Not sure if there is still anyone on here who attended the track day at Rockingham that was organised by Bob back in 2014?

Old thread here; www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?t=1390346

Everyone that attended had a great time and was worth every penny.

I have been chatting with one of my dear friends who is an area rep for the AMOC who thinks this would be a great event to repeat and will be advertising the day through the AMOC website/forum etc...

Looking back at Rockingham there was a maximum of 40 cars allowed, I have also looked at Donnington but the cost for this circuit is way more to hire than Rockingham (from memory) I would imagine if we limit places for us to 20 slots and 20 places from the AMOC, obviously can even those up depending on numbers...

So I am more than happy to organise this event, I had 2 years racing and have built up some good contacts along the way, one BTCC driver has said he would be happy to come along and would ask a couple more drivers if they are up for the event.

They could seat hop through out the day for tuition and assistance, obviously they will want a fee for the day that could be spread across the whole cost.

As far as dates go I am looking at end of April next year on or around the 29th.

I am still waiting for final costs from Rockingham and will post this up as I get them all.

We may as well start a list now of names of anyone interested. Ill go 1st.

piston head name, followed by real name and what model car you have.

Possibly a dumb question, but, here we go. If this is a sort of "private" function, are helmets required ? I don't have enough headroom in my car to wear a helmet so if they're not required, I could be interested.

Definitely interested but have one question. What is the insurance situation for events like this? Does everyone HAVE to have their own track day cover or is there some kind of group cover provided by the track/included in the fee for the day or is it entirely up to individual participants whether or not they have any insurance at all? I suspect it is the latter but just want to know what the deal is.

Yes helmets are required..... Last time there were helmets available to hire on the day, this is something I would have to look into, why do you think no room in your car?

Hi Pete,

Check with your insurance provider, I am with Loctons, they will include track day cover as long as its an Aston only event, This was the case last time but even I will be double checking this.

They have 2 options usually, 98db or unsilenced... Unsilenced is usually a lot more expensive..

I know my current insurer doesn't provide any cover but that wasn't my question. My question is - what are the rules of the day/track? Can you attend and participate in this event without any track day insurance in place? I ask this for two reasons:

1. Do I have to change insurer or get stand alone insurance for this event?

2. Will there be people on track without any 3rd party liability insurance?

Not being awkward or anything and totally want to be part of this event but just want to know exactly what the situation is and where I stand?

Pete, There is no 3rd party insurance, for example if your car is insured for damage on a treack day, if I come into contact with you you would have to claim from your own insurance etc... Same as any normal track day. But in all fairness I cant see this happening. The last one went with no misshapps....

Only concern is track noise limit, mine hits over 105db...?

TBH if we are hiring the circuit for the day they will overlook this... I know my car on the last one was well over, same as Yeti and it wasn't a problem.... I am still waiting for the price from Rockingham, they all generally have 2 prices. 98DB and unsilenced..

just depends on what we all want to pay... In all fairness, anything around the £500 ish for an exclusive day like this is great.

I've no idea where the GT8 is (but certainly more than 99db!).

If the limit is high enough there may be a group of the GT8 owners interested
