Looks a good track, very similar to what Barkston heath was. But then it is an old air field and they all look the same, several old disused runways and some roads around the outside and the infield!

Blyton Park is a great track. Went there last year on the MK1 mini event along with a few others on here. Super smooth surface, good blend of quick and technical bits. Thoroughly recommend it.

Not doing this one but am going to the Mk1 event there at easter. Prefer that one as it's a classic and derivatives only event.

Bloody good track and been there on the MK1 event for the last 4 years.

I missed the tickets for the 2018 mk1 event in the chaos of a house move shortly before Christmas. We'll have to start posting up 'who's going' as these events get closer - would be great to put faces to a few more names

Think I'd better go experienced. Our cars are likely to be higher powered than most. I also have done about 8 track days so certainly not novice.

I wouldn't worry. My 16v a series van was measured at 112 on a static test at 7k revs and never had issues at Blyton.
I think the drive by test is down near the first corner so your off the gas and braking by then

Anyone actually thinking of attending the 18th March event?

Looks like this guy was showing his frustrations which I would be thinking the same. Turquoise Mini should of let him past much earlier. A telling off at the end shows the circuit deals with bad driving.

Oh right.

The event is still on the Javelin website but is now not restricted to Mini's. There are 7 cars booked on it and 6 are Mini's although not sure if classic or BMW. One Clio is also on.
