By far the best car show of the year, also a great night out before, last couple of times we have stayed in a local hotel i think its 50 a night per room

The range of tickets available are:
-entry ticket (1 needed per person) Last year, 10 advance,20 on the gate.

-car pass, to get your car on the stand (these are FREE.... you just have to ask for them)

-sprint ticket, for 0-60 trials. Note that this is NOT a 1/4mile, nor is it a drag race. ONE ticket buys ONE run. Last year one ticket was 7.

-track time, for those brave/insane enough to take their car out for a blast on Silverstones legendary grand prix circuit. ONE ticket will buy you one 20 minute session. (You can not stay on the track between sessions... the track is cleared between every session.) IMO a track session is the most fun you can have in a car with your clothes on! Last year ONE track session cost 20. This DOES NOT include track insurance. Bear in mind your road insurance IS NOT valid whilst you are on the track

I am willing to organise this if there is enough interest in a club stand :D

ill be going even if WC dont

Dont think we attend this as a club, as from memory its a bit of a max power live affair. Been a few times years ago.

But Northy or Gaztwo (club events co ordinator) should confirm.

Thats you opinion, thats mine. I've been attending many car shows for years.

I wouldnt attend Trax anymore, simply cos if I wanted to see loads of max power fantasy cars, I would attend the local cruises, like I did when I was 18 - many moons ago. Just not my scene.

Dont think the club has attended trax before.

Plus @ 7 for a 0-60 run, is extortionate to que up all day.

Don't want to cause an argument, but Trax is awesome!

Ive been to a few shows and I went to Trax for the first time last year with the missus, we both thoroughly enjoyed it, and the D1 final was awesome!

FCS last year was appalling, why we bothered to go to that I don't know... Trax would be brilliant, especially if we can get about 20-30 cars on track to properly advertise how amazing the Williams is!

The track scene now is huuuge! When was the last time you saw more bodykits, than lack of interiors!


I think going to Trax as a club is a brilliant idea! And 20 to drive silverstone... BARGAIN! 40 to drive an oval of crap concrete at FCS... diabolical!


Rant over! :wink:

Come one lads and laddettes, lets go! :D

I wouldnt mind going to trax again, last time i went was '96 when it was still mainly a ford day national day and i was only 10! Will be giving fcs a go as well as last year was the first i went to so it can only get better for me.

I thought the track at rockingham was the infield circuit (in the centre of the oval)?
