East Fortune has not been updated in the "alfascot.com" website!!
I can't believe it!
For further info visit http://www.javelin-motorsport.co.uk/...trackdays.html
Bookings through AROCSS will cost £100 not the £150 Javelin advertise. There is still definitely room for more cars. Contact Colin Beveridge 01738 560 085 for further info and booking- there is still time. I still think that arrive and drive would be ok, but lids may be at a premium.
East Fortune is slightly longer (I think) than KH and wider as well. All the corners where tyre scribbing is likely have been relaid in smooth asphalt. Some of the straights are still concrete, but not really any worse than some B class road surfaces.
The track is quite flat and less technical than Knockhill, so should be good for the less experienced. There will be a novice session and some sort of instruction/guidance will be available if needed.
Due to the long straights which are connected by a slight kink, significantly higher speeds will be obtained than the 90mph which is available at KH.
Track time is 10-4. Depending on numbers, there is talk of running an open pit, but otherwise, it will be split into 3*20min sessions every hour.
I have driven it for the reccy, and it should be quite good fun. Perhaps on a par with KH, but way better than what was Ingleston. It is worth supporting because it is the first time a car track day will be run at this event and a little competition for KH is no bad thing.
Even if people can just spectate, it would be good to raise awareness and have some other opinions to see if it would be worthwhile running this event again, or just sticking with KH.
