Fed up with our dismal summer? A new company is offering professionally run trackdays in southern Spain.
‘Trackdays Spain’ is aiming to provide a ‘first class, well organised track day, keeping driver numbers low (45 is the limit) to maximise track time and limit waiting time with safety a priority on the day.’ They’re aiming at those who keep cars in the locality or who might be touring on holiday with their cars.
Apparently, an Enzo and a Ferrari 550 Barchetta are among the cars already signed up, as well as a Triumph TR8 and the usual suspects from marques such as BMW. The company will offer expert advice from a professional FIA GT3 championship race driver and from the Track Days team that has over 20 years combined experience in organising track days.
The business is aiming to operate between circuits such as Ascari that offer days but at very expensive rates and days organised by Spanish providers at the budget end of the market.
The company has its official launch on 27th July at the Spanish circuit Guadix. Set against the magnificent backdrop of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, it is only 90 minutes from Malaga and is said to offer superb racing facilities at a much lower cost than similar tracks.
For the launch, there’s a special price of 299€ per person, which includes: circuit time, expert advice, lunch, refreshments and prizes.
Days can be arranged on an individual basis or for groups and the firm is also offering bespoke corporate days.

Looks Great - I've been running trackdays at Guadix for over four years and Clive and his team do an excellent job. Groups are always well regulated, marshalling is good and the circuit is great - even better since full resurfacing last winter
Let's hope it goes well

The guy that is running it - Mike Knivett - is a very professional guy too. Makes a success of every business he turns his hand to, and is a car nut to boot (former 996 GT2 owner, currently a Radical, a Ferrari and other kit). I've done plenty of track days with him and would be confident this project will do well.

I wonder if they have thought about travel packages? Looks a great place to go, but a bit of a trek with the trailer on the back. Bert
