Bring them all! (Entry is per driver, not per car).

If werks are interesting in becoming involved, get them to PM me...

Can i bring a cup car whats the noise limit? are garages available?

James lll have to get back to you, I would have thought it would be as it is for any weekend re noise levels,  but I'll ask the question. Cup car... lucky basket! 

Garages are available on the day paid directly to Sandown...

Steve we'll have tuition on the day from trackday introduction driving through to experienced. We're also looking to host an evening in a pcar workshop which will outline how to prep your car for the track (which with porsches isn't usually that much), but things like fluids and pads, tire condition and pressures, secondary bonnet tie-down etc etc Standby for details, but it'll be around two weeks before.

I should point out that there will be the opportunity for passenger rides, but that obviously won't be most of the sessions... probs around lunchtime.

Sold the GT2 too early.  Spectator instead.

Fully respect the desire for all P cars....but.......if not enough entries and you need to open it up to make it viable, I'd be really keen to punt the RX7 around.

Hi Kerry.

I've checked with the guys at Werks RRR and they'd be more than happy to put on a night/Sat morning (?) about car prep. as well as showing people around some of the race and project cars they've got under way.  

They'd also like to support the event in any way posssible and if you like can supply some end of day "refreshments" as one of their bigger customers runs a winery ... !!

For my part, Steve 88 I'm more than happy to pass on tips and even take people for a skid (pardon the pun) in my car. I'm happy to thrash other people's cars but I'd rather teach in something I know. 

I'd try and organise the 11 Cup Car (if there is a noise limit I'd fit the "quiet" muffler ...?), a few IROC's, the 991 GT3 RS, GT2 and a few others and their owners who have 70's, 80's and 90's P cars, various GT3's and GroupS cars.

Werks RRR have also said they'd bring their transporter to add a bit of color and variety.  

PM me with your number and I'll call you.  

Count in RockRed as a starter. He's not a member yet but he will be and I've assigned him this name.

I'd object to this. As you would be too fast...

You're suspended from driving on public roads. not a race track. ;) Go get your "fix" 

 

Also this is friggen awesome to see the PFA finally do a track day!! Get those bloody hoons off the roads. 
I probably won't be there.  90% chance i'll be working.

Yeah me too. But the trick was to chuck the old lump and whack a Toyota engine in
