RAF Marham charity track weekend 28th/29th April

I've not been to one of these for a few years now but it's basically a hoon around an active airfield in Norfolk in the name of charity. It's cheap, the money goes to a good cause, you can Vmax your car and there's always some flash motors there.

Not really a circuit designed for small nimble cars but there's a huge straight and a few wiggly bits for some looning. The food is AWESOME as well. The guys and girls who run the day are giving up their weekend to raise money for the base.

50 a day, 10 an additional driver/passenger, who only need to be registered once over the weekend, so it's very cheap if you wanted to do a two-dayer. Booking system isn't up yet but the website is below:

Gratuitous fooling around shot:

Yeah, it's normally a good laugh, although bloody windy last time I went! I'm hoping to have a different gearbox by then, so will use it as a bit of a testing session before a summer of trackday thrashing. Probably only really want to do one day though. They might be able to let us swap cars if we "accidentally" bought a different car to use the next day.

Bloody hell, good one! Not sure when I'll be booking yet. What day are you doing? Or the full weekend?

(Think I'll move this to the trackdays section in a mo.)
