Sounds good to me. Hopefuly I'll have had some work done by RC by then (finances willing http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > ) so will be a nice outing as my first proper track day (Castle Combe was only 12 laps so doesn't realy count)

David,

I can't wait - really looking forward to it! I've spoken to a few guys recently who really rate the circuit, a couple even said it was their favourite in the UK! So it's time for the Lancer equivalent of the SIDC day last week, preferable without the rain http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/Happy.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| middle >

We've already got a number of Evo's booked, Alan and amp; Bob (Dragon Autosport) are planning to bring 'something yellow' up for a blast, and I believe Max, Jenny and the RC crew will be there too so it should be another great day.

Adrian,

I think you'll surpass your 12 laps!!! [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/biggrin1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Darin,

I would not advise having my mum as a passenger in a 2CV, never mind an Evo. Last weekend took her for a run out over the North Yorks moors (Evo nirvana where the only real danger is dozy sheep), and every two minutes it was eeh, slow down, you're over the speed limit or just potter along behind this one (rover 214 driven by blind geriatric), we won't get there any faster Aaaaaaarrrrgh!!! And the acceleration makes her stomach go all funny.. Now imagine her in the passenger seat on a TRACK DAY (I don't think I can!). Love her to bits though.

C2, Croft is just south of Darlington on the North Yorkshire/Durham borders. Bit of a Treck for you mate.

Steve.

Count me in. It is a great circuit and will be a good test for anyone with cut down Mintex pads!!! Make sure you fill up with super u/l before arriving as there is no refueling at the circuit. See you there.

Steve,

I always thought the nearest place for SUL was the Shell Garage on Woodlands Road in Darlington (near Memorial Hospital) but found the Jet garage on the A167 towards Northallerton have started to restock. This is only 2 miles from the circuit but on the SIDC day they were charging 96 p per litre and ran out in the morning anyway http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > .

From the South, you can fill up at Scotch Corner Services before you get to the circuit but it's a good 20p per gallon more than the Shell Garage in Darlington.

Cheers,

Mark

I am in!

Croft is a great circuit, well worth a trek up from the South!

Please, please boycot the JET service station near the circuit,

NORMAL UNLEADED 77.9p

SUPER UNLEADED 93.9p

A PREMIUM OF 16p PER LITRE!!!!!!!!!! OR ABOUT £7 PREMIUM PER TANKFUL!

He is just shafting and profiteering from track day drivers and diserves to go bust!

At Scotch Corner the Esso is the normal 4p per litre premium and is only about an extra 4 miles!

anyway rant over and looking forward to seeing the usual bandits there!

p.s.

anybody travelling from the south, if you fancy a stop over around Preston I will gladly arrange it, the circuit is 1 and a half hours from us.

Kev,

Silly me thinking it was 96p per litre when it was a bargain 94 http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/wink1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

For reference, the Shell garage in Darlington is charging 84.9p per litre - how does that compare to Scotch Corner Services when you were up? It sound like they may have more realistic prices now [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Cheers,

Mark

Don't normally let anybody drive it, but say hello on the day and I will seehttp://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Paul

It is FLAT, being an old airfield but it has very challenging fast corners and I can't wait to go back there! Oulton and Cadwell are very different but they all have there good points.

Guys,

Hands up who wants to try a set of slicks whilst they're at Croft??

Tim Ashton from BTR Motorsport Preparations has just been in touch to ask;

'. . . is there anyone coming that may like to try a set of slicks to establish a wear rate for me (Michelin S4A tyres). I could do with someone who can press on and push them http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/Happy.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| middle > These are brand new tyres, fitted to Evo 5 standard rims which we will fit to the car on the day for whoever might want them. In return I want a record of the number of completed laps or the total day mileage to calculate the same if all laps are at full attack speed. A contribution to wear and tear would be required at £100 for the day whatever state they finish in.'

If you think you're just the person to help trash Tim's slicks, he can be reached on; 01977 552348 or [URL][email protected][/URL]

Hi

Well its my first post on MLR, I hang around the dark side (Scoobynet). I was at the SIDC @ Croft and will be crashing in on your party at Croft. It will only be my second track day so still a newbie !!!

Ok, who was on the track at the SIDC day, I remember a black Evo6, and two Mak's, all v smart, put my poxy 94WRX to shame !!! Although i did hold my own with the man in the black Evo. Will be back at Croft with a few more mod's to help me!!!

Looking forward to joining the banter on here !!!

Skip.
