Track signing on IMPORTANT INFO

Signing on and briefing times will be as follows.

Morning sessions 

Sign on from 7:30

Briefing 8:30

Drivers must attend all the briefing and late arrivals will be locked out and thus prevented for going on track.

We will hold a second briefing for any late comers at 9:30. You will obviously loose track time if you have to attend that one. Easiest way is don’t be late.

WE do understand that people may have issues along route, however at this time in the morning they should not be traffic related. If someone does have a problem and is late, please call us on the number we will send out via email to entrants. We will attempt to get you across the track but this will be at a convenient point. If you are later than the second briefing we can not give any guarantee that you will be able to get on track.


Afternoon sessions are divided into 3, 123, 456 and 789. These are coloured RED, BLUE and Green.

Red sessions latest sign on is 12:45 and the briefing will be at 13:00.

Blue sessions at 13:45 and 14:00

and Green sessions 14:45 and 15:00

If you miss your session briefing you will not be allowed on track. We will be strict with this. Be on time and there will be no disappointment.

Afternoon session cars should be brought to the Paddock during the lunch break.

For the latter afternoon sessions there will be an opportunity to bring your car to the paddock later in the day, but will basically mean waiting in the top car park until there is a suitable time to open the track. It could be a long wait if you don’t come over during lunch.

The paddock will be a busy place. Only cars with a valid track ticket or coloured sticker will be admitted to the paddock, there is no general parking there.


 And don’t forget:

Helmets, vital…

driving license, I assume needed for sign on,
(i forgot mine once and its a pita if you need it.!)

<o:p> </o:p>

Arrival time<o:p></o:p>

Entry to the track for track driving is from the Paddock. However, the access to the Paddock for vehicles is across the track, therefore during track operation there is no movement between outfield and Paddock.<o:p></o:p>

Therefore it is important that you arrive at he correct times to get access to the Paddock for your session.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

There will be a marked parking area at the opposite end of the Paddock to where you enter, please proceed to this area and park in the appropriate space. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Morning sessions. <o:p></o:p>

Access will be from 7:30 onwards. Access will close at approximately 8:50<o:p></o:p>

Driver and passenger sign on will be from 7:30. This will be in the signing on room under the Race Control Tower<o:p></o:p>

Driver briefing will be at 8:30 in the briefing room under the Race Control Tower. <o:p></o:p>

Important. You will not be allowed on track without attending the whole of the drivers briefing. The briefing room doors will be locked during the briefing and so if you are late you will not get in and you will not receive a briefing wrist band, and therefore there will be no track access. <o:p></o:p>

Do not be late!<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

If for what ever reason you have not managed to arrive at Mallory before the access route is closed please phone the MoT Master Contact Number and tell us your expected arrival time. <o:p></o:p>

If this fits conveniently with the current activity on track we will attempt a very short track closure to allow cars to cross. There will also be a second safety briefing at 9:45 allowing late arrivals to go on track some time after 10:00. Drivers arriving after this time will not be permitted on track and their morning track time will be forfeit. Late drivers may be able to purchase afternoon time if slots are available. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Afternoon sessions<o:p></o:p>

Afternoon cars are welcome to arrive before 8:50 and be left in the Paddock all day, however assuming you would rather have a lie in, then cars should be brought to the Paddock, via the upper car park (the area with the statues when you arrived at Mallory). The track will be closed until 12:30 due to track activity. It will close again at 13:20<o:p></o:p>

You will not be granted access to the Paddock unless you have either a track access sticker from Mazda on Track or your correct activity ticket. <o:p></o:p>

You may queue ahead of time in the upper car park.<o:p></o:p>

You may sign on at any point throughout the morning and if you do so you will be give the appropriate window sticker that allows you access to the Paddock.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

There will be a marked parking area at the opposite end of the Paddock to where you enter, please proceed to this area and park in the appropriate space. <o:p></o:p>

At approximately 14:10, 15:10 and 16:10 there will be a short stoppage during which time cars may enter or leave the Paddock <o:p></o:p>

Cars wishing to enter should queue at the top entrance car park<o:p></o:p>

Cars wishing to leave should queue at the top of the Paddock. There is a sign indicating where they should queue. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Drivers leaving or entering should drive on the left as they would on the road.<o:p></o:p>

Drivers should not dawdle, but also should not use excessive speed. <o:p></o:p>

Use their Hazard Lights while on the circuit to show that cars are on track under open conditions.<o:p></o:p>

Be aware that cars will bunch at exit gate to the circuit and that you are entering an area where pedestrians could be. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>


<o:p> </o:p>

Additional Tuition slots will be available throughout the day at a cost of £25. If you wish tuition please book this at the signing on desk. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>


<o:p> </o:p>

Mallory’s own fuel station will be open during the day. It is situated at the top of the Paddock. It will be more than regular pump prices therefore it is recommended that cars are fuel prior to arriving at Mallory. There are several fuel stations within 5 miles of the venue.<o:p></o:p>

Running out of fuel on circuit is a bad thing. It will cause the session to be stopped while your car is recovered and people will hate you. Please ensure you have enough fuel for your track time.<o:p></o:p>

As a rough guide you will use 2 gallons per 20 minute session. If you have a turbo monster, then you will use more. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>


<o:p> </o:p>

Seat belts and helmets must be worn at all times by driver and passenger when on track. We strongly recommend that both arms and legs be covered as well. <o:p></o:p>

If any driver has an aero screen car, full face helmets must be worn.<o:p></o:p>

Mazda on Track has a supply of about 20 helmets for hire on the day at a cost of £10. On a first come, first served basis. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Brakes / Tyres<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Prior to arriving please inspect the brakes and tyres of your car to see there is sufficient life in them for the track. Morning session drivers will require pads / tyres to be no more than half worn. Afternoon session drivers should allow 1mm per session. Please also check the level of your brake fluid and top up as appropriate.<o:p></o:p>

Mazda on track will have a limited supply of EBC Yellow Stuff High Performance Brake pads for purchase on the day. Please let us know by the end of Thursday if you wish us to bring replacement pads for you including MK3 cars. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

General Mechanical condition<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Track driving will in general place a greater stress on your car than normal road driving. It is important that you prepare your car for track use. Check your fluid levels. Ensure you have sufficient oil in your engine. If you are doing both morning and afternoon sessions check your oil level between the sessions, the same goes for coolant levels. <o:p></o:p>

Take great car checking a hot engine to but burn or scald yourself. <o:p></o:p>

Also inspect your coolant hoses and belts. If they are on the way out, change them, the track is not the place you want them to burst or break.<o:p></o:p>

Finally inspect the general mechanical condition of your car ensure nothing is loose, broken or leaking. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Take time to warm your car on track, do not go flat out on your first lap, equally after the chequered flag slow to half your track speed and allow your car to cool as you come into the Paddock. <o:p></o:p>

Do not turn your engine straight off, especially if you have a turbo car, but allow the car a minute to circulate coolant to cool. <o:p></o:p>

Do not apply the hand brake, but rather turn the engine off and leave the car in gear, this will avoid the risk of the hand brake sticking to the hot brake discs and also prevent warping of discs. <o:p></o:p>

However, do remember the car is in gear when you go to start again.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Hot Laps<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Ladies, please be aware that Hot Lap cars will have race Harnesses which will include a crotch strap. We recommend that you wear trousers. If you wear a skirt it will require to be hitched up, which may cause embarrassment. It will however make your driver very happy.



Towing eyes.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

If your car has screw in towing eyes, (MK3 Owners) please insure they are fitted to your car once you arrive in the Paddock. It should be fitted to the front of the car if there is only one. st1:cityst1:placeMarshalls</st1:place></st1:city> are under instructions to remove broken cars expediently from the circuit. If there is no obvious towing point they are apt to wrap tow ropes and straps around any convenient part of the car.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Items in your car.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Please remove all unnecessary items from your car before going on track. It is not necessary to remove spare wheels but loose items that will fly around the car during spirited cornering. We will provide an area where items can be left but it will not be secure so please consider the value of any items you wish to leave.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

MK1 Owners, please check the security of your battery clamp. If your battery is loose you may we receive a “battery escape hatch” dent in your rear wing as the battery makes a bid for freedom.




<o:p> </o:p>

As said in the previous emails, helmets will be available for hire. I know some people have made requests to pre book these. We are unable to do this, however, there should be enough to go round.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

What will be important though is the timely swap over for afternoon sessions coming into the Paddock and swapping with those drivers about to go out. <o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>

Please if you have an MoT helmet, when you exit the track, please drive back down to the assembly area without delay so that we can rotate the pass the helmet on to the next customer. <o:p></o:p>

We should have a supply of disposable balaclavas for people to wear under the helmet.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p> </o:p>


If you have your own helmet, you have a friend, son, daughter, relative that has one, please bring it with you as it ease this problem. Bike helmets are totally acceptable. <o:p></o:p>


Will a Morning Briefing do for all day?

Or do we need to attend each one for “legal” reasons and be banded up?



 No just one will do.

Afternoon drivers can also come to an earlier briefing if they want, but it will depend on space in the briefing room.
