Cadwell Park - Sunday 22nd May Golf GTi Championship

Post  Sakers on Mon May 16, 2011 8:58 pm

Anyone else gonna be going to this ? looks like a great event, theres going to be 3 Golf races on not including practise etc.
and as a bonus the other races are decent aswell, BMW, Trackday and euro saloons etc. I go often to watch the Alfa romeo championship which is a quality race but its not often that the others are anywhere near as good, usuall caterhams with about 8 cars listed.

I cant wait for it to be honest, Cadwells one of the best circuits ive been to and its always the most entertaining.

Heres a link to prices, line ups : http://ticket.motorsportvision.co.uk/calendar/2011/may/220511-msvr-cp.aspx

yes but going round cadwell on trackdays you are not allowed to race, so as much as it being fun its not 'racing' , im gonna go as i havent been since the series first started.

if you look on www.javelintrackdays.co.uk they do cheap cadwell park evenings from £59 , so for about £100 you can have a good old blast, thats where i popped me headgasket last week!! costs even less if you share a car and have two drivers!!

i am hoping to be there for this. kai is pit crew for one of the cars too.

cadwell is a fantastic track to drive, done it a fiar few times. if you have a bit of balls you can put much bigger stuff to shame round there, i think basically as the top speed of a golf is relatively low but they handle so well ( i'm talking mk2's here by the way!) you can corner so much faster than some prick in an m3 (assuming they are a prick).

liam, if the marchalls suspect you are racing on a track day they'll have you off

i dont get it either, but will most likely be down to safety, load of shit to be honest you pay to go on the track to test your car and driving skill, which is simply racing to me.

it is all about safety.

the point of racing is to win.

the point of track days is to hone skills, have fun, test your car etc

that's not to say you dont have little battles with other drivers but if you go with a "race" attitude you'll be ejected.

as an additional note, i wouldnt want to be on track in my pride and joy if others are racing each other. there are rules for track days for good reason - it stops people getting hurt/killed.

no timing of any description either, if your found timing or anyone timing you, you will be black flagged !! not just javelin trackdays either most of them stipulate this!! you just go for a good old drive your heat out session as much as you and your abilities and your cars allow basically, they are great fun, you will try to race other people, but people take different lines, theres no overtaking on corners only on the straights , so tbh in a golf as well as they handle unless youve got something special under the bonnet your going to get overtaken a few times Smile

so what your saying is if your lapping faster than someone else and cornering faster but there quicker on the straights you cant over take them,despite the fact they are slowing you down on the corners.

lol.... i know the feeling.... but if youve got through the twisty bits and your now holding up a porsche gt3 or a 450bhp scoobie, your going to get overtaken on the straights end of.... its such a mixed bag on track days unless you goto a specific 'golf mk2' or similar organised one, there is alot of cars out there that will beat you end off..

ive done many many track days specially at cadwell , in my old vr6 golf , a 350bhp mr2 turbo , (i did try in my 16v golf till it blew) and my mates scooby , his scooby is 280bhp and to be overtaken on the straights by a corsa was a bit humiliating... till you see what the corsa has under the bonnet...

good fun though recommend them to any one, would be good to sort one some time so as a few from here can all sign up and get booked in so we can have a load of dubs out there Smile

other than darren dury from louthvw there mine was the only other golf Sad
