Frequently Asked Questions
How much is membership?
Membership to circiut days is completely free. You only pay when you want to book an event.
Will my car need modifying for circuit use?
No. If the car has an MOT or can pass MSA scrutineering it is suitable.
Will I wear out my car?
No. Brakes pads and tyres tend to wear at a faster rate than normal, depending on the driver. However, as most modern cars are now developed on race circuits, wear rates are surprisingly low.
What will I need to bring?
Your car, a helmet and for some venues a valid road driving licence. If you do not own a helmet you can hire one from us for £10 per day. Please note numbers are limited so let us know early. Alternatively, a helmet can be purchased from most motorcycle shops, car aftermarket traders, etc from as little as £50.
Will I slow other cars down, or will they slow me down?
No and no. Circuit Days track days are non-competitive events that enforce overtaking by consent only regulations. Therefore it does not matter how fast or slow you or your car are - everybody has to overtake on the straights, and with both drivers consent.
Will I be insured?
Track day insurance is available for a reasonable fee.
As the risk of damage on track days is relatively low, most, including ourselves choose not to take out track day insurance.
If you are not entirely comfortable, however and would like more peace of mind, then don’t worry. Several insurance companies offer dedicated track day policies at reasonable rates. Please contact us with your requirements and we can advise; however most choose not to take this option, as the risk of damage is low.
Will I get plenty of track time?
Yes. limited numbers both in attendance and out on track at any one time ensures maximum, quality track time.
Is tuition available?
Yes, tuition is available from ARDS (association of racing driver schools) instructors at all Circuit Days events.
