Bedford Autodrome March 17th 2012

Post by vinp182 »

Following on from the Brands Hatch day we did on Sunday, the guys from the Fiat Coupe club have asked us to do another... I'd suggested Bedford Autodrome for this one though as this track is a lot more forgiving than Brands Hatch :cool1:

Be good to have a couple more mr2's there if anyone can make it :)

The date will be 17th March 2012 - http://www.easytrack.co.uk/cartrackdays

Looks a little closer to us up north than the last one :th:

Is that £150 all in (except insurance obviously ;) )?

Track doesn't look half bad :th:
(although that's one hell of a waste of a runway, lol)
2 Highland Drives, 1 Full JAE, 1 Part JAE, 1 France Trip, 1 North Wales Run, 2 Dyno days, 3 Karting Events (Current Champion), 1 Scotland Meet, countless Yorkshire Meets and even more Northwest Meets later... Im MR2-less, for now!

Yeah thats the price for the day... I don't know anyone that buys track insurance for the odd trackday as its about £80 a day.... Fuel is the other cost

This track is the best one ive been to for beginners and for a laugh..... There is big run off all round the 4 mile track so its quite hard to hit anything (other than another car of course lol)

Didn't realize this was an MR2OC thing :th:

Bedford is a great track as there is enough room to drive however fast/careful you want. It's no Brands Hatch, but having done both (well, Indy Circuit), Bedford is a more fun and relaxed environment. The surface is good too.

Hope we get a good crowd up there.

Has anyone booked? I'm not really bothered about the coups other than seeing them on track (never seen them driven in anger).

Would be great to share notes with some mr2 owners though. Only done a couple of trackdays and never too close to the limit.....always some engine noise or something that starts to worry me :)

I'm booked up, cheers for code Trouble :th:

Car's at JDM right now for a bit of prep. Hopefully I'll have enough funds left over for a few tweaks too..including maybe a CG lock? I remember the club had a group buy a couple years back; people still rate them after living with them for a while?
