We have no exclusive track days planned in Central Scotland this year as per plannimng meeting discussion. See extract from minutes below.

It was agreed to investigate the possibility of arranging a carting evening however it was felt that the cost of £1700 for a track night was prohibitive and that we would look at joining other clubs, if possible, for anyone interested in a track night

However we will be pursuing the possibility of joining in with other clubs and details of these will be posted when opportunities become available

Thanks - yes £1700 is pretty steep. Thanks for the information.

£1700 aint a bad price is it? Thats only 17 of us at £100 per person? How long track time was this for?

When I enquired it was for 2 hours open pit. VAT is on top of the £1700.

In theory OK, but will people pay more if only 15 sign up? or who would stand the loss?

Who will put up nearly £2k as it has to be paid in advance

We have jumped onto one of Dreadnought Garage Trackdays before. Well mannered, welll policed (not like hot hatch days)

Downside is it's thursday nights they have

Trackscotland also do days and have a sat evening in June

If Crail hasn't been resurfaced you would need a respray and glass after. It was breaking up quite badly and I don't suppose this winter has helped
