FAQs

Here we answer the most common questions people ask before booking a track day. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us!

How much is membership?

Membership to Circuit Days is completely free. You only pay when you want to book an event.

Will my car need modifying for circuit use?

No. If the car has an MOT or can pass MSA scrutineering it is suitable.

Will I wear out my car?

No. Brakes pads and tyres tend to wear at a faster rate than normal, depending on the driver. However, as most modern cars are now developed on race circuits, wear rates are surprisingly low.

What will I need to bring?

Your car, a helmet and for some venues a valid road driving licence. If you do not own a helmet you can hire one from us for £10 per day. Please note numbers are limited so let us know early. Alternatively, a helmet can be purchased from most motorcycle shops, motorsport outlets, etc from as little as £50.

Will I slow other cars down, or will they slow me down?

No and no. Circuit Days track days are non-competitive events that enforce overtaking by consent only regulations. Therefore it does not matter how fast or slow you or your car are - everybody has to overtake on the straights, and with both drivers' consent.

Will I be insured?

Track day insurance is available for a reasonable fee. As the risk of damage on track days is relatively low, most, including ourselves choose not to take out track day insurance.

If you are not entirely comfortable, however, and would like more peace of mind, then don't worry. Several insurance companies offer dedicated track day policies at reasonable rates. Please contact us with your requirements.

Will I get plenty of track time?

Yes. limited numbers both in attendance and out on track at any one time ensures maximum, quality track time.

Is tuition available?

Yes, tuition is available from ARDS (association of racing driver schools) instructors at all Circuit Days events. A 20 minute session is priced at £40, a half day £200 and a full day £400.

Are additional drivers allowed?

Yes additional drivers are charged at £30 per person. Note there will be a maximum of 4 drivers in total per car permitted unless otherwise arranged prior to the event.

Are passengers allowed?

Yes passengers are charged at £10 per person.

Will there be a photographer present on the day?

Yes we will have photographers present to take photos of you whilst out on circuit.

Will I be good enough?

Yes is the simple answer. It's not a competition. Everybody is free to enjoy the day. Last year we had a 100 year old man participate and achieve 100mph down the Hangar Straight at Silverstone. With an instructor present. He was a brave man (the instructor).

Am I able to participate in a Road Tour?

As long as you hold a full road driving licence, yes. Since 2005 we have had thousands of people participate, ranging from a group of 18-21 year olds who had almost no continental driving experience to a couple in their late 80s that had been driving abroad since they were in their teens. Everybody is welcome. Note for the fly away events where car rental is necessary all drivers will have to be at least 25 years old to obtain the vehicles listed for each event. Depending on the location a supplement may be payable to get the listed vehicle or you may have to drive an alternative. Contact us for more information.

Will my car be suitable for a Road Tour?

For fly away Tours, your car will be provided. They will always be the latest specification, lowest mileage example of vehicle available at the rental location. For European events, we have had cars such as a Citroen C1, Grinnal Scorpion, Rolls Royce Phantom and Porsche Carrera GT participate. And everything else in between. All cars are welcome.
