Norlog track day interest

Post by Boothy » Sun Jul 02, 2017 1:14 pm

Hello guys,

I know it's been a while since the last one I organised but I have been having a chat about possibly trying to get a northern lotus event organised at Blyton park.
I'm not sure if we could get the numbers on our own so will try to hook up with the guys at Nyloc and exiges.
I have never been to Blyton but it looks a good circuit for our cars.
Key points I am looking at are a weekend date and a maximum cost of £150. In order to achieve this we need 40 cars.
I didn't think this sounded impossible?

So I guess lets do the usual stick your name below and any thoughts or comments? With regards to dates we need to get a feel for interest but obviously later this year and likely a Saturday rather than a Sunday.
Again as with previous days for those who have never done a day before this would be a good opportunity to get out with likeminded people and enjoy your car in a way it's very difficult to do on the road.

Done Blyton twice now but still think it is a decent track to do again. I would have joined Mikeydude in August but already tied up that weekend

I'll stick my name down but flagging up now that whole of September I can't do

We are doing BLYTON on the 27th Aug and thought it would be good to do it as a Norlog track day...but have yet to have any interest ....it does not help being on the same day as the gold cup

Sorry Mike I was not aware, I was just having a conversation with a TDO ad thought I could make myself useful.

It would help if I read the meets section I suppose. However looking the issue seems to be around the dates? Plus in the past posting in meets for event interest never really worked for me.

I suppose the question is would people be interested based on a different none gold cup clashing date?
Based on norlog alone sadly these days I don't expect to get the numbers but spread across a few northern forums we might?

If it's not a goer or I'm treading on toes I'll happily pass over details

It's no problem Andy...I am just pleased you are interested in a track day.....blyton is great....not a fast track but intricate with loads of run off
