I have seen 2cv's, beetles and fiat marea estates on the track, you can take anything.
you will only get out what you put in, a standard road car will be enjoyable, but on a different level to a fully prepared track car.
Cadwell and Oulton are quite technical circuits, very undulating and numerous corners where you need to commit to making the turn before you can visibly see the corner, there is little room for error and if you leave the circuit you will become a magnet to the armco.
I have seen many a 'off' on one track prepared clio you could see the imprint of every tyre down the entire side of the car from it hitting the tyre wall sideways.
I see you've done a few on bikes, so you will know cad well, different lines in a car as you know.
Theres always bedford autodrome, which is fairly flat, little armco and loads of run off, I don't recall seeing a car hit anything there, its probaly the safest track, more so for standard road cars.
one there Sat 7th coming up justBTW
tyres, I run full race slicks so road tyres may be different, start off at 25psi (less on a hot day) get the tyres hot, come in and release pressure down to 30psi.
Don't over-tyre your rims, 205's sit great on a 7.5j rim whereas 225's are over-tyred a little.
Decent pads, yellowstuff or the later/newer race pads are fine, many use yellowstuff in production car racing and the pads will last a season.
You will know the rest if you've done the bikes...
