Charity Trackday - Knockhill, 4hr Open Pit - 21st July

Postby TrackScotland » Tue Jul 05, 2011 7:46 pm

TrackScotland are running a track afternoon on Thursday 21st July 2011.

We are using this trackday as a fundraising event for 'TrekScotland' with a raffle and donations for additional drivers and passengers.
TrekScotland are raising money towards the Colin McRae Vision
See here for more details - http://www.trackscotland.co.uk/trekscotland/index.htm

TRACKDAY
The afternoon will be run from 4pm to 8pm.

There are two booking options:

* Open Pit lane 4 hour session
* £100 per CAR
Tickets for the 4 hour session can be ordered via
Track Scotland Shop


In addition we will be running our standard 2 hour evening session from 6-8pm for those that cannot get away from work. Spaces for the 2 hour session are limited.
* Open Pit lane 2 hour session from 6-8pm
* £70 per CAR
Tickets for the 2 hour session can be ordered via
Track Scotland Shop


The Online Booking uses PayPal ONLY, so you can only use Credit/Debit Cards VIA PAYPAL FUNDING OPTIONS. If you would prefer not to use PayPal, cheques or bank transfer will be fine. Email for details. fee@trackscotland.co.uk

ADDITIONAL DRIVERS AND PASSENGERS
For this trackday, and the rest of our trackdays this year, we will be asking for donations from additional drivers and passengers to go towards our fundraising efforts for TrekScotland.
We would suggest a £10 donation for additional drivers and an open donation for passengers, to be given at sign on. I will be there to badger you!

RAFFLE
We are also holding a raffle for the trackday. Tickets are £10 each and can be bought through the online shop.

----> BUY A RAFFLE TICKET HERE <----

Once you have bought your ticket(s) you will be emailed with an order confirmation number - this is your raffle ticket number

All raffle ticket numbers will be put into a hat and picked at random.

Multiple raffle tickets can be bought under the same order number, we will simply put more than one of the order number into the hat.


PRIZES

First Prize - Free TrackScotland Trackdays for 2012
The prize allows the winner to attend all TrackScotland dates organised at Knockhill in 2012 with ONE car free of charge.
The prize is not transferable and can only be used by the winner on trackdays in 2012.

Second Prize - Passenger Laps with Gordon Shedden
We are offering one lucky winner the chance to win a hot lap with Honda’s British Touring Car Driver Gordon Shedden. Gordon will whizz the winner around the track in his Honda Civic.
We are hopeful that this will be able to happen on the day of the trackday but unfortunately Gordon cannot 100% confirm his availability until nearer the time. If he cannot attend on the day, the passenger laps will be arranged for a mutually suitable time.

Third Prize - TrackScotland embroidered shirt!
The third winner will receive a lovely black shirt with TrackScotland embroidered logo and name :)

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch :)

I have done loads of Trackscotland sessions, both in the mx5 and the 944, and had a great time - i would recommend this to anyone. I can't make this one as i'm in Italy on holiday :cry:

Yes, spectating is free

For those of you that have not yet checked your email, and for those of you who are considering booking on....we have sent out the following announcement

We am very sorry to have to let you know that due to a lack of numbers
we have had to reduce our 4 hour track session on Thursday to a 2 hour
only session, running from 6-8pm.

Unfortunately we have just not received the bookings to make the 4
hour session viable and we are not in a position to subsidise the cost
ourselves after having to do this for our May date. We have discussed
the options at length with Knockhill and this is the only solution
that was mutually acceptable.

We had hoped that promoting the event as a charity trackday would help
us get the numbers required and help to raise funds towards our
fundraising efforts but, to be honest and transparent, we remain
nearly £2,000 short of Knockhill's fee for the 4 hour event.

We appreciate that this is not an ideal situation and one which we
would very much have liked to avoid.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.


Not ideal, but unfortunately could not be avoided
