Right i am going to try and get a trackday up and running who's up for it.




I am taking the XR4i on a trackday before i start working on it and have spoke to a couple of people about doing a trackday who would like to do one.

Its in a place called Elvington which is in York about an hour and a half away.

Its run on a airfield so there is nothing to hit as there are no walls as such and unlike places like Silverstone who will black flag you for spinning here they wont and they let you go as fast and sidways as you like but saftey is always on there minds so they wont let you drive like a fool.




I will more than likely have a 325 4door or another XR4i which i am bidding on now. So sombody can use this as promised in another topic.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PAY FOR THE DAY AND GET THE CAR THERE AND BACK AND FUEL IT FOR THE DAY.




Its 95 for 2 drivers (same car) and 5 to be a passenger. And its also FREE to get in.

Its would be such a laugh us all convoying down there and were else are you going to take your car to its limit and not get a ban.




As i found out this is one of the best ways to see what your car can do and find out what you need to sort to get it to go better.

You dont have to take your own car get a couple of you to buy a 300 pound car and use that.

How funny would it be to see the likes of Tony220 in his NOS metro or stu sidways in his beast.




Its more than likley going to be november so there is plenty of time to get your car ready and comeup with the money.

YOU MUST PAY IN ADVANCE AS THE TRACKDAY IS A PRE-BOOKED EVENT AND THEY DO NOT TAKE MONEY ON THE DAY UNLEDD YOU ARE A PASSENGER.

Copy and paste your name if you are interested.

Only thing about elvington is the surface - it is very very abrasive frown

You will do a full set of tyres in over the day - thats new to bald eek

Unfortunatly, I cant get my std wheels over my front brakes so wont be doing it as the total cost would be 95 + circa 500 for a new set of 18" tyres frown

Its just that after the price of the trackday and then the tires, it prolly works out cheaper to do Oulton Park which is less abrasive, better on tyres, longer, closer, more interesting than an airfield with cones marking the track........

However, Oulton Park is more in the initial outlay which is bound to put people off :rolleyes:

I'll be up for this. Just need to work out whether Iam going to take the Lotus or another car. Will get back to you. I took my Esprit on a driver training day which had a track session at the end. I absolutely hammered it. Said I wouldn't take it on a track again. Might buy something on Ebay or use another Esprit but a 2.2 turbo with Lotus works engine with 408BHP!!! Now that would be fun!! I'll put pictures on this car up later, it's in pieces. It's a joint venture race car which may be ready next month.

Stuy, topgear tyres in Ellesmere port do good part worn 18" from 25-50 each fitted and balanced. It's another option for you??

I once bought a mint set of two rear 285/35/18 Perelli P Zeros for 50/each for my last Esprit.
