Knockhill Mot for Track Days

.... for those that enjoy 'tracking' their car.

Postby -- » Tue Dec 05, 2006 10:43 pm

The Track day with us is not a dangerous affair. It is a time to drive your car as fast as YOU want. SAFELY

People going faster will pass on the straights, and not pressure you.


I have seen the footage if you chaps "doing it right". I was referring to my own skill level which would make it foolhardy for me to attempt it, which is why I am contemplating skid pan and basic training. I don't think I am a poor driver, having driven for 32 years without causing an accident.. Im just well....slow! :P...and alive.

RULES!!! DON'T FORGET...


ALL vehicles must be fitted with a towing eye


So does this mean I have to fit a set of tie down hooks since I dumped the ones I took off.

Paul...Will find out from Knockhill. Last year I asked about this as it was in their track rules then and a few mutterings on the Knockhill Forum, I explained about our tie down hook situation and the clerk of course said he would allow our cars on track without them, since we had a pretty good report from the stewards on our previous Track Night. I don't know if this will be unchanged for 2007 as they seem to be getting tighter with the rules, it may be worth looking at the Goodwin Racing ones, think they come in pairs so could even share the cost with someone. I would far rather fit one of them than put back those god awful mazda ones.

Or these...

Although both sets are using the same fixings as the Mazda ones, it would seem that the actual eyes sit lower in the mouth and therefore should do less damage to the bumper...

Looks like tow eyes (call them what you like !) are a definate must for Knockhill.

Just come back from Dreadnought. They had a Lotus in that goes there. Lotus Elise OC have had rear eyes specially made as the Lotus comes without any at the rear

Found my front ones, didn't throw them away after all.
But do we need back ones too, haven't taken any off but cannot recollect seeing any.

Hum, will I get away with just the rear tow hooks, before I send the cheque off to Douglas? My front ones were removed before I bought the car.
