Mazda On Track - Curborough Club Day

Postby IanH » Thu Aug 26, 2010 2:28 pm

The Annual Owners Club Curborough Club Day will take place on 17th September which is the Friday before the National Rally at Chatsworth House.



This is a tremendously fun event, being relaxed and informal with heaps of encouragement and help for novices and experienced drivers alike. The short sprint track is both challenging and yet benign enough for the inexperienced.



This is very much a social day as much as driving and has become somewhat of a regular event. Spectators are more than welcome, in fact encouraged to come and watch.



This year sees a bit of a departure from the past in that due to the National Rally, Curborough is being held on the Friday rather than Saturday and the day will also be broken into two halves.



The afternoon “sprint” (there will be no official timing) will follow the traditional format of one car on track at once and operating a queuing system and will run till 5pm.



However as we have the track all day, in the morning we will provide “Welcome to Track” sessions via Mazda on Track, where novice drivers can come and drive a track prepared MX-5 and receive tuition on track driving. It’s an excellent introduction to motorsport and the 2008 Ladies HSA champion and club member Barbra Fogden started just there, with a session at Curborough.



The afternoon sessions will be £35



Welcome to Track sessions will be £60 and will include both theory and driving.



This event will be run independently by Mazda on Track,
