PERFORMANCE DRIVING CAN BE DANGEROUS AND MAY INVOLVE INJURY OR DEATH

 

 

For the safety fo yourself and others and your enjoyment you need to prepare your car properly for the day

 

 

You could be liable for damage or injury caused by your car if it is unsafe for use on the circuit

 

 

 

 

A track day is an opportunity to drive your car as fast as you feel comfortable and explore what it and you can do in a safe environment. During the day your car will be driven harder and faster than it is ever driven on the road.  It is a serious activity so it is important to prepare the car properly for the day. The following list includes most of the points you will need to consider but it is not exhaustive. Your car will not be scrutineered, but you are required to sign an indemnity saying you have covered the safety points in the list below.  This is also a requirement of the circuit.
