Trackdays are the perfect way of learning more about your vehicle in a safe, controlled and non-competitive environment. There is no racing, no timing and no requirement to set a new lap record. Just the opportunity to drive your car as fast as you feel comfortable, almost certainly with a big grin on your face!
Drivers are invited to nominate themselves for one of three different groups to keep everyone safe and happy:
Novice, Inter-Experienced; club track session
This way you won’t feel under pressure at your first event. Equally, experienced drivers in dedicated track cars can really press on, without getting held up.
Car Trackdays start at 09:00 with 6 x 15 minute sessions on offer to every driver for just £130!
The event will finish around 14:30.
Please note there is a noise limit of Static: 100db and Drive By: 92db on all vehicles out on track.
Car Track Day FAQ
The short answer is yes.
The safety of our drivers, volunteers, staff and spectators is the top priority of the team at Lydden Hill. There are extensive regulations and processes in place to maximise the safety for everyone on site.
Helmets are mandatory, we strongly recommend that they are full face. Long sleeves and closed shoes are also mandatory. This applies to both drivers and passengers.
Our marshall’s are fully trained in dealing with on-track situations such as fires & collisions as well as keeping a constant eye out for any track obstructions to make sure the event can run smoothly.
We also have paramedics trackside that are ready to go at all times while cars are on circuit and due to the nature of our circuit, our ambulance and medical staff can usually be at the incident site within 60 seconds.
It is not a requirement to have insurance on a track day. However, it is worth noting that it is likely that your standard road policy will not cover any damages to your car from a track day.
We recommend that you take out trackday specific insurance that can cover your time on track, usually paid for per day.
Yes, there is hot & cold food available in the paddock from the food bay, which serves a range of locally sourced produce including chicken bites, panini’s, chicken burgers and much much more!
No – An additional passenger ticket must be purchased
This is because passengers and drivers are governed by two different track insurance policies therefore both tickets must be held.
Arms and legs must be covered with no open shoes.
Helmets are mandatory for drivers and passengers, we strongly recommend full face helmets.
Your car needs to be safe and fit for the purpose of track days, a towing point needs to be fitted to the car in case of recovery. A seatbelt or harness must be worn at all times.
We welcome a range of car types, from stripped out race cars to standard road cars and open wheel kit cars; if you are unsure if your car will be suitable for a trackday, get in touch with us and we can advise.
