Motorsport - Friday Fun Day at Curborough, on route north to Chatsworth

The Annual Owners Club
Curborough Club Day
will take place on 17th September which is the
Friday before the National Rally at Chatsworth House.

This is a tremendously
fun event, being relaxed and informal with heaps of encouragement and help for
novices and experienced drivers alike. The short sprint track is both
challenging and yet benign enough for the inexperienced.

This is very much a
social day as much as driving and has become somewhat of a regular event.
Spectators are more than welcome, in fact encouraged to come and watch.

This year sees a bit of a
departure from the past in that due to the National Rally, Curborough is being
held on the Friday rather than Saturday and the day will also be broken into two

The afternoon “sprint” (there will be no official timing) will follow
the traditional format of one car on track at once and operating a queuing
system and will run till 5pm.

However as we have the track all day, in the
morning we will provide “Welcome to Track” sessions via Mazda on Track, where
novice drivers can come and drive a track prepared MX-5 and receive tuition on
track driving. It’s an excellent introduction to motorsport and the 2008 Ladies
HSA champion and club member Barbra Fogden started just there, with a session at

The afternoon sessions
will be £35

Welcome to Track sessions
will be £60 and will include both theory and driving. 

This event will be run independantly by
Mazda on Track,
