I am very pleased to say that following meetings with the senior management of City Motors Volvo, they have very kindly agreed to sponsor this year's event!! :wav:

 

This does of course mean that we will be able to keep the costs down as we have in previous years which is fantastic news for everyone!  I will post up more details soon but hope to get the drivers list up shortly so please keep your eyes peeled!!  :drive1:

Ok as a track day newbie does anyone have any recommendations before the big day? Also does anyone know the noise limit at Castle combe, and do or can they do a test before the day as i have a new exhaust and it may be too loud.

100 db I think from half a metre behind your exhaust.

What are you looking for in terms of recommendations, car, personal, hotel?

Afaik they can do a test before hand.

I think there's an action day sometime in the next few weeks, should be able to get a test done at that

Just wondering what people have learnt to bring, leave behind or wish they had done before or during. Just general advice really. Thanks for the noise advise,I'm going to try one if those smart phone apps just to get a rough idea, will call combe and try and get it tested correctly before the day, if needed I can always put the standard one back on.

Gazebo and ground sheet can be useful; either to keep dry if it pees down or shelter from the burning sun if it's a nice day. Been there, done that, seen both situations.

Chock to stop the car rolling away when parked up cooling down. Torque wrench for checking wheel bolts.

 

Check the car for all the loose stuff you normally don't realise is in the car until you hit the brakes hard and something whizzes past your left ear LOL. 

 

Fairy dust for irf  :whistling:
