    Blyton 2018 Feedback

    It would be useful too if all the forum information was gathered under one heading (there are postings under Shows, track days and Speed series). Also I know there is a special web site for the Blyton Weekend but I can never find it, could there not be a link from the main site? Or is there one that I haven't found?

    Blyton 2018 Feedback

    I had the same experience, but I always took that corner slowly just in case! Could it be that people were not starting as soon as the green light came on? Maybe in the future it would be worth emphasising this?

    Blyton 2018 Feedback

    Track day and sprints enjoyable and well organised, thanks to all. Catering was good and I enjoyed the breakfast. The sanitary facilities although regularly cleaned are dated and only marginally acceptable. While I can sympathise with the problems they had with the water supply to be told to go and crap in the field is not on, especially for the women. I'm always happy to help out, but with the trackday and then 6 runs on Saturday and 6 on Sunday there was no time. As a general comment it would be useful if there is a red flag that is going to last more than a few minutes the drivers be told so they can get out of the cars. Sitting belted, helmeted and suited in 30 degrees heat for a long time is not only uncomfortable but potentially dangerous, speaking for myself I can manage about 15 minutes before I start to feel the effects of the heat.
  4. Great weekend, many thanks to all for the hard work involved in organising such a splendid sprint and track day.

    Blyton Park Track day briefing

    Yes but the safety briefing is important as in my limited experience of trackdays a lot of the people at track days are not experienced competitors and so need to listen! For example I note that overtaking is on the right, I'm pretty sure that at the last track day I did at Oulton overtaking was on the left and think this is standard at MSV track days

    Roll cage for sale. SOLD

    My car’s previous owner had a separate cage fabricated to bolt to the existing welded in roll bar. Most tubes are 38mm OD, the main hoop over the windscreen area is 45mm OD. Not sure what it’s worth - £200? I can bring it to the Blyton Weekend if need be.

    I leave my car in the garage until the last minute as its not insured against theft when on the trailer in the drive at home.

    3 Sisters Sprint

    Excellent day out, 7 timed runs on a twisty and demanding track. Exhausting! 3 Sisters track is in great condition recently relaid, hopefully the paddock will soon receive the same treatment. Organisation from Longton was good as one would expect. I hope that more people turn out for Longton's 2 other events there this summer.
