It's just gone live at 1pm

If the website hasn't updated for you yet try this link:

vxrpowerevents.co.uk/eve…ts/

It only appears to be working on some browsers at the moment. I am booked.

Did this last year at Oulton. Great fun and was pleasantly surprised about how much they encouraged you to press on. Heat for a fun half day out!

This looks amazing but but my husband can't do June and Hampshire is the other end of the country.

Can't get it working on chrome ie or safari

Booked! Only a 300 mile round trip.

Did Oulton with them last year and cant recommend them enough. Brilliant day.

I did rockingham last year, was awesome

seems they have cut back from when i went, had stunt driving as well as tracktime , was more expensive though if i recall , was around 2 hours

This is a good deal still though and well worth it

Are they doing Oulton Park again this year? I missed out last year

Silverstone national circuit & Thruxton

Heated, did the 3hour driving school last year was great value, booked for the hour this time.

If you booked both, they may be cancelled as only one event can be booked per person which is on the T+C

Booked Silverstone and THruxton although problems with caching website initially. Got my confirmation and it's a great day out!

Does anyone know the restrictions on height and weight, if there are any? I'm a bit too tall and heavy for many of these track day experiences

Site not working so can't check myself

Great deal. Did a track day on my motorbike at Thruxton yesterday - excellent track!

Bahh wish this was closer! 200 mile each way, I'll pass

Did it at Oulton park last year and it was great!

Yes you have a qualified instructor. Most of the guys are current racers or karters.

It's an awesome inexpensive track day. You get to absolutely rag the cars silly and the instructors will let you know where you can improve or tell you that you can brake later or get on the throttle earlier etc

If you can get in a vectra im sure you'll be fine Ashley.

Damn,website down for 'maintanence' via Safari iPhone

Did the taster in the morning last year @ Thruxton, then the performance session in the afternoon. Only restriction was that if you have previously done the performance school, you can't do it again (it's a highly subsidised event - cost £200 with Vauxhall last year and my instructor said he charges around £1500+vat for similar tuition, car etc). Exceeded my expectations and even though I traveled 2hrs each way to get there, considering doing it again this year.
Thruxton is a fast circuit though, so it will test your nerve if you keep the power down.
The cars get a hammering but they don't reign you in unless your driving is dangerous/stupid.

Well worth it!

Thanks, been meaning to look out for this again as a nice fathers day present to myself.

Maybe I'll take my own vxr!

Why not then let one of the Professional drivers show you how to drive fast on track

I know I've done loads of session there.

Thruxton is not only a fast circuit it IS THE fastest circuit in the country. It is also very wide in parts so there is room to embarrass (I mean pass) the other VXR drivers

Why expired, website is down as they are merging two sites and it should be back today.
