The VXR trackday is back. It's a bit more than last year (£120 for most places, think it was £90 last year??) but the time spent on track is longer (1 hr 45 mins each session verses 1 hr 30). Still great value for this long on a track in someone elses car, normally with good tuition.

Anyway, your money gets you 1 hour 45 mins on the track, the same amount of time in 'manouvers' (handbrake turns and the like), plus lunch and briefing. There is an offer for vxr owners for £75, but I think its a different session (and already on hukd). Rockingham is a bit more (£160) but appears to include 'kick plate' and drift school sessions.

Tip for the top - try not putting the Astra in Reverse whilst still travelling forwards on the Autocross course. The people don't like it when they're 300mile old Astra is stuck in 5th

(oops!)

It was £95 last year, so 25% increase, and you get 16% more time. So slightly worse value, but still great compared to other track days

And no oulton park this year either, Boo!!

Still a great day though highly recommended.

Top post, just spent £120 I don't have

Been on 2 of these before, best £95 I have ever spent.

I've been to Oulton Park for this the last 2 years It's a fantastic day out..gutted Oulton Park isn't on the menu this time
I've booked for Croft this year even if it is 100+ miles from my house .. It's that good !!!
