Blyton Park Trackday 3/3/12 - Apex Trackdays - MX-5
Blyton Park with Apex Trackdays - www.apextrackdays.co.uk
Stan and Cap's first time on track and first outing for the Mk1 MX-5 we were in. Engine is completely standard but it has different shocks, geo setup, tyres, TR Lane half cage and buckets/harnesses.
Great day out as always - special thanks to the chap who broke our steering lock at the start of the day. Nope, not joking, I left the keys 120 miles away so we had to effectively hotwire the car to get it started!

Apex Trackdays: Blyton Park, 18th June 2011. Clio 172 Cup.
Video of my first track day at the newly reworked Blyton Park. Richard's
done a great job here, the track has a good variety of stuff and is
I managed 85 trouble-free laps, no queuing or problems with traffic - great
Huge thanks to the guys at Apex Trackdays (www.apextrackdays.co.uk) for the
good organisation as always. All their days include free 2nd driver, free
passenger, free instruction and free photo from their photographer

VX220 Turbo Here is why Radicals should be banned from Track days
Here is a clear demonstration why Radicals should be banned from Track days
and only allowed on Test Days. The drivers are not up to the job and they
overtake in ridiculous places like the Apex of Graham Hill at Brands. This
guy was obviously a track day first timer but who would let someone so
incapable out in a car like that? A menace to everyone else and a danger to
themselves. Marshals were due a share of criticism too - they wasn't a
single waved blue the whole 2 laps. Later that day the Radical did the same
thing again! If you get cut up by a faster car its because they have been stuck
behind these kinds of fools.
MaX5 Racing - Snetterton, 30th August 2014
A complete Race 1 and highlights of Race 2 from Snetterton. I did the test
day for the first time and it really helped - qualifying 2nd and winning
both races (in class). We had previously visited Snett 2 years ago, where I
was 5 seconds a lap slower than this time, pretty pleased with that level
of progress :-)
