Merry Xmas everyone....

I have just got back from holiday to find an email from Will from Rockingham.....

Am I the only one who would suggest the Sunday 22nd???? As offered at no additional cost ether... I can see this making the whole event much better for all??

I will keep bumping this thread just to make sure we all see it. Also in the next few weeks I will start grabbing peoples email addresses etc for the final confirmations for the day.




Hi Paul,

Hope you are well and getting enjoying the festive season so far?

I’m emailing as we have had a slight shift in our calendar which has resulted in the 21st April needing to be offered for a race meeting test event. All is not lost though as this has freed up a few other options which should still work for you:

Friday 6th April
Sunday 22nd April
Friday 4th May

To confirm, if the Sunday was an option for you I would honour the weekday rate.
Let me know if any of these are suitable alternatives?

Many thanks,

Will
Will Thomas

Just in case you lot think I am a mean so and so, I have paid up a few days back, which will no doubt show on the next updated list.
Once we get to 30 or so cars and are all confirmed, do we really want any more late entrants?

If we reach 30 cars and then close entry that will mean that I will pay the deposit but also means we will all have to cough up an extra £50-00 each.... Not forgetting the £20-00 each for the photographer... Or we can lose the photographer if we choose???? I will let you lot decide that.... But I would like to give him as much notice as possible as not wanting to mess him around...

I have a friend who says he willing to come along for the day to take some shots and some drone footage, he is a professional photographer... But bare in mind he may change his plans if he has a shoot booked..

In the beginning when it was looking like we would have 45 cars the costs were broken down as follows....

Circuit hire total including, 2 ARDS instructors, track venue insurance and VAT £10,500.00
Photographer £20-00 each £900-00

Total £11,400.00 divided by 45 = £254-00 each

Then the numbers started to drop, so the game changes to rescue the day, the circuit hire which is the most important thing at the £10,500.00 split between 30 comes in at £350-00

If we have late entries just means I have to recalculate a little and like I said ether refund any over payments or beg for a little more from those who have already paid....

As it turns out this hasn't all fallen into place as easy as I thought it would.. LOL But I set out to organise the day and will do anything I can to make the day happen.

At present we have 25 cars confirmed with 4 still to send money over, even at 25 cars the day would work out at £420-00 each so nearer the end of the month if all that have paid are still wanting to go ahead we all cough up an extra £120-00 each.. and all 25 of us have an awesome day...

I will leave it with the gods to decide the fate of the day laugh

"Well done Paul" clap

From the experience of organising 3 Track Days on this forum such as yours for Aston owners (Rockingham, Snetterton & Cadwell) and now reading this thread, I'm reminded of the challenges one has to overcome. I regret I'm unable to join you and bring MO55IE along (engine now in re-build until May) but know those that do attend, will enjoy an unforgettable experience.

Chaps,

Can I just say I’ll gladly pay more to make sure the day goes ahead.

I’m certainly not loaded, but having paid the £300 a week or two ago. Another £120’ish really won’t hurt too much.

I’ve booked into the Rockingham Hilton for the night before.

See you all in the bar! beer

That's the spirit..... I too would be more than happy to go up to £420-00

How do we all feel about the extra amount? If we are all ok to go up then we can get the deposit paid at least, then the more that join the less we pay.

Let me know....

Fine with me, but would be nice to get more cars along. I’m planning on enjoying watching other people shooting around as much as driving myself!
