The Porsche Club’s Track Day programme gets underway in March at Goodwood. This will be followed by our second ever Track Day at Knockhill in Scotland, organised in conjunction with Porsche Centre Glasgow.
Our fifth day of the year will be at Anglesey Circuit in North Wales and as in previous years it will be linked with the Club's 'Porsches on the Prom' event in Llandudnow.
We have a number of days arranged for Goodwood circuit in West Sussex and Castle Combe in Wiltshire. These are always popular, run with relatively small number (appealing to less experienced Track Day drivers) and are spread thoughout the year.
This year we will be running an evening event at Brands Hatch on the Indy circuit, replacing the full day we ran at the circuit last year. These evenings have always been popular and will provide access to the circuit, where there is insuffiicient demand for a full day.
In August we will once again be running a day at Croft circuit in North Yorkshire. This will again be supported by local Porsche specialist, Strasse.
Our year will end at Oulton Park in November. This day will once again take place in the period that is the circuit’s ‘Winter rates’ allowing us to offer that day at reduced price. This event was so popular in recent years we ended up turning people away – so please get your bookings in early this year, to avoid disappointment. This day (as will all our days aside from Goodwood) will be run ‘Open Pitlane’. So, aside from the first hour of the day when drivers will be grouped according to track day experience, drivers will be able to go on track when they choose, subject to the number of cars on track. This type of day is very popular with the membership, as it allows for the potential of lots of track time and a relaxed day.
Following feedback from Club members, all of our Goodwood days will continue with just 25 cars booked on the day. This helps to ensure maximum available track time.The Castle Combe days will run with a maximum of just 35 cars, but 'Open Pitlane'. This has proved to be popular as it allows for more track time, despite the slightly higher cost per head. These days will be run to the traditional queuing system.
Two of our days this year will be on a Saturday as, despite expressions of support they tend to be less well supported than weekdays. All of our days will be run to a static noise limit of 105dbA, making them as noisy as any circuit will normally accommodate.
We are able to send Track Day dates to those who request them, by e-mail. To subscribe, simply complete the little panel to the left, advising which disciplines are of interest.
