As part of the Club’s Rally weekend members can enjoy a special day at Curborough on Saturday September 10th.
Tickets for this event are limited available via the Club store https://store.mx5oc.co.uk/curborough-sprint-september-2022-3979-p.asp
Being the first time we have been able to return to the circuit in the past few years the day will also be in memory of Gerry Nichols who was responsible for creating the opportunity for the Club to get going at Curborough many years ago.
Drivers will take to the sprint track one at a time, allowing them to drive within their comfort zone and removing the concern of having to negotiate other vehicles. The short technical circuit is particularly well suited for the MX-5, making it a fantastic opportunity to put both your machine’s handling and your own driving abilities to the test.
However, it’s important that you come prepared, ensuring that both you and your car are ready to take on the track safely and can enjoy the day out to the maximum.
We ask that you wear clothing that covers your arms and legs (although gloves are not required) and keep the side windows up while driving, regardless of whether you drive a hardtop or soft top, with the roof up or down. You will require to bring a helmet, your membership card and driving licence with you.
As for your MX-5, it’s important that it’s road legal, including the tyres. Slicks will not be accepted. Track cars are permitted, but again, these must be road legal. All vehicles will be subjected to noise checks prior to entering the track, so make sure your car doesn’t exceed the maximum threshold of 105db.
Novices and complete newcomers to track driving are very welcome, and there will be qualified instructors to help get you started. Cameras should be firmly affixed within the car and not handheld. Spectators and passengers are also welcome.
The price is £45 per car, and you should book your spot early to avoid disappointment.
