Somewhere down the line I‘ll be trading my Cayman for something more track focussed. Radical (SR3 maybe) sounds fantastic but the online reports of people doing (or attempting to do) trackdays in those are somewhat contradictory. Half say it‘s the best trackday toy ever,
half say the cars are a massive pain, not allowed due to noise limits, or due to being too fast/too much like a race car (which I guess they are) etc.

My preferred venues are Silverstone, Snetterton, Bedford (I‘m based in London). If I were to get one,
it wouldn’t be road legal, and I’d probably look to pay a racing team to maintain it for me. I don’t have a racing licence and don’t plan to get one soon. So the main issue is, will I be able to have fun in a Radical or should I get a Caterham or Ariel instead?

Hi.
I have driven Radicals on track days for the last 10 years and now have an SR3RS.
I now mostly do Gold Track days because they are well run with a good standard of driving and cars.
The car is now run by a professional team which is obviously more expensive but is so much easier and if something goes wrong on the car ( which as their preparation is good hasn’t happened ) they would probably be able to fix it straight away whereas I might face losing the rest of the days running.
Hope this helps.
David
