Llandow Trackday

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

Llandow Trackday

Well folks I really need my head examined. :shock:

I'm just back from a 900 mile trip to Llandow in South Wales for a trackday with around 25 other MX-5s.

The track is a shortish sprint circuit with a really technical chicane complex, a couple of fairly long straights and a couple of flat out 3rd gear corners. I took my old Pirelli tyres (to save my good sprinting tyres) and I'm so glad I did. The circuit is really tough on the front passenger tyre - I saw a couple of cars with their tyres through to the wires!

Notable cars at the event included Lazza's 240bhp Mk2.5 (although it was broke!) and the Phoenix 5's Race car.

Had a sit in a couple of race seats and looks like I'll be getting an aluminium Kirkey seat! :D

I'm off to Wigan next weekend for my next sprint at 3-sisters - full report after the event.
