Hiya Stevie, still got the Evo II??? 8-)
Yep, it was the BMW M Power Club of Great Britain I believe. I`ve managed to get hold of someone at the circuit so hopefully they`ll get back to me in the next day or two - if not I`ll phone again.
I`ve just realised that the 6th is actually a Wednesday - that does seem an odd day to hold the event. Hmmmmmmm, I definately remember it was the 6th though and wrote it down a while ago.
I really would love to take to the track in mine, even if its just for 3 laps - just to get the feel of it.
Hope all is well,
I read a while back that they had a track day planned for 6th September at Castle Coombe. The Castle Coombe website only shows weekend events and I am wondering if anyone knows of this event. I basically want to know if this event is still on and if non-member can go along too.
Hi there Darren,
I think you will probably find that BMW car club or some kind of BMW club has arranged the event as a private meeting but if you phone Castle Coombe circuit I'm sure they will let you know how has organized it. When you know, phone relevant people and ask if you can come along to spectate. I did this when BMW CC had a meeting at Croft circuit in July. I just phoned them and asked if I could come along and they said "no problem" I even got a ride in a couple of M3's e36 and e30's !!!!!. Good luck.
Hi there Darren,
I've still got the Evo 2, I've never used it for a couple of weeks as I'm now running around in a 1.0litre Micra!!!!! My wife uses the M3 most days as she does a lot less miles than I do and is less likely to thrash the crap out of it!!!! The reason the event is probably being held on a Wednesday is cost, as it will be a lot cheaper on a weekday. You would be surprised how much a circiut costs to rent. Did you say they were having a track day on the 6th of September?
