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 surprisingly challenging!
I managed 85 trouble-free laps, no queuing or problems with traffic - great day!
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 www.adeycorp.co.uk. Highly recommended!

Lincolnshire is the place for you.

First visit to the circuit.

2nd session I did before the gopro ran out of charge. I was struggling to
change from 2nd to 3rd all day, think the syncros are very worn which
slowed me down a fair bit.

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.
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!
