Re: Alfaowner Track Days

My vote is in for Bedford
The GT circuit is HUGE. The back straight is way too long for my 1.6 but the rest of it is

The only snag is they are VERY strict on noise so if you have a booming exhaust you get sent home. No second chance.
A catback system should be ok.

Anyone running a turbo would prob have to drop the boost pressure a tad. Its not very high their limits!

Re: Alfaowner Track Days

Sorry, no. Bedford's too far for me and I have no interest in really ragging my own (daily) car around a track.

Sounds like a fun day out, might have even managed to buy a GTV if it's later in the year.

I won't be ragging mine either, but I will be driving it how it is meant to be driven. Like at more than 70mph..

Re: Alfaowner Track Days

Bedfords a good track for anyone starting out too.. There isn't anything to hit if you go off!

Club members will also get a discount.

Fraser - just put your car in for a service and pick up a tidy loaner and rag that instead....
