I’ve been having fun at trackdays in the UK after coming home from Australia. In comparison with Oz, here, we seem to have largely open pitlane sessions where my UK car and I can happily do up to an hour at a time and just occasionally be circulating with similar speed drivers and cars, which always adds to the fun. In Oz, there were usually enough MX5s in Victoria (we sometimes teamed up with Alfa or Subaru - similar speed cars) to fully book a track and we did 20 minute sprints with timing allowed and done by the organisers (MX5 Club Victoria) and always with 3 groups of similar speed cars and drivers. The MX5 Club had an annualk Championship for various levels of MX5. These days were even more fun as you were always with similar speed cars and drivers including better drivers with less power who you could learn from and later compare notes with about what they did differently or what they’d done differently to their car. It also worked for me because my car there wasn’t capable of being used at 100% for any longer than 20 minutes and needed 40 minutes to cool down before the next session. The UK car seems to take as much punishment as I can give her for as long as I like - having 260 less hp may be a factor!
I know about the Javelin sprint series but travelling all over the country to only do a few laps is not for me.
So are there any plans to do a sprint series as in Australia?
