Our novice only track days allow anyone to experience the thrill of driving on a race track without the pressure of being surrounded by more experienced circuit drivers and racers. If you have never taken part in a track day before, or you have only taken part in a few events, then a Novice Only day is a great place to start. High performance cars are by no means necessary, although they are also welcome!
The Donington Park Grand Prix circuit is full of fantastic sweeping bends - a real drivers favourite. The ‘jaw dropping’ Craner Curves and Old Hairpin combination offers the perfect place to test your (nerve) technique. With the inclusion of the GP loop we have extra track linked by The fast chicane of the Esses and down to the Melbourne hairpin. Sweeping through Schwantz and Mcleans is our favourite though.
This event will use a session format split into FOUR GROUPS where you will typically receive six 15-20 minute sessions throughout the day.. The number of cars will be limited so you have masses of space on circuit. Novice bikes will also be on these events (in a different group!)
Please pay special attention to the noise limit. The standard 98db 'drive-by' limit operates throughout the day. This is not comparable to the 92db drive by limits at other venues. Cars close to the typical 105db static limit will likely fail.
The day will include:
- Marker boards around the circuit to help you master the track
- Limited number of cars on circuit
- Experienced instructors on hand throughout the event, offering advice and in-car tuition
- Pit garages are free on arrival on a first come basis
With the additional driver price of £15, why not bring a friend to join you and share the cost? Remember you don’t need a special car to take part and after a day on the track, we guarantee you will be back for more!! As always, instructors will be on hand at all times to offer advice and one-to-one in-car tuition, for a small fee. Open-top vehicles are not suitable for instruction unless you have an intercom.
Please note: Novice Only Trackdays are for drivers who have little or no on track experience. Race licence holders are not permitted and will be refused entry without refund or credit.
