Easytrack in conjunction with the AROC are running an Alfa Trackday at ‘The Rock’ Saturday November 5th on the 2.62 mile layout. This is a social track event not a race day!
The day will be run in 3 sessions throughout the day, with novice, Intermediate and Advanced groups, and invite all Alfa enthusiasts along. Novice session will be for road going cars only and instruction will be available throughout the day, if you fancy dipping your toe in the water there will also be a limited number of single shots of 20 mins on track, with an Instructor. We will have along a number of Alfa race cars which will run in the Advanced group and invite others to join in where suitable. Some of the race cars will be available to hire too, so you could get behind the wheel, with an instructor for a session to experience the thrill yourself.
- Novice group; Road going cars only and drivers who have done less than 6 Trackdays
- Intermediate group; People who have done more than 6 Trackdays
- Advanced group; Track cars, Race cars and you must have done more than 10 Trackdays.
All groups are non competitive, no intimidation allowed and should run 20 minutes in every hour except lunch.
You can of course come along and spectate, the view from on top of the pit garages is stunning and it’s free!
Places are limited so please book early if you would like to participate. Prices are; £159 for a track space for 1 car on track through the day, pit garage £26.50 (easy room for 2 cars) second drivers £10.21, passengers £7.00 much more info on the Easytrack website. These are all bookable on the website and are pre-pay only prices, some crash helmets will be available on the day, and instruction is either pre-bookable or pay on the day. Please note prices on the day will be higher.
How to book? Visit http://www.easytrack.co.uk click on ‘Car Trackdays’, scroll down to Rockingham Sat 5th and follow instructions. Make sure you select which group you want to drive in, although there will be a little room to change groups if you need to. (Click here to go directly to the booking page.) There is a very handy FAQ page too under the ‘Beginners’ tab on the Easytrack site which is invaluable, we encourage everyone to read this. A comprehensive drivers briefing will be mandatory for all drivers with special attention and care to newbies.
Can I insure my car? Trackday insurance is readily available and cheaper than you think. You cannot insure ‘3rd Party’ on trackdays, but you can insure your own car against damage (although this is very rare). You can insure just part of the value, i.e. just the first £1,000 or £3,000. For more information contact Andy Hancock at MMC Motorsport Insurance on 01474 362400 or email ; firstname.lastname@example.org.
