Just like that?

You've organised track days before, or you just think it'll be easy?
Just because you're offended doesn't make you right.

I looked into this a while ago. Cost of renting Castle COmbe for a day is circa £8K and you need to put the money down in full. You got to sell 60 spots at £140ish to break even. Not gonna happen on here.

The only way of getting a group together is to hijack an organised day at a circuit by getting everyone to book on the same trackday.

i've been looking into it recently and have been quoted far more reasonable prices than that for a private day on a good (read: suitable for beginners) airfield circuit

biggest issue: how much of a "show" do we have to make it to justify charging spectators an entrance fee to make up the remaining dollah. Because even with a big forum push i can't see a huge number of people coughing up in advance for track space.

Good point Toph, airfields are a fair bit cheaper. I'm such a trackday snob I forget about those :grin:

I think if you can bring something fresh to the show as well as traders it'll get a fair bit of interest. Certainly track oriented events get a good turnout form CGTI members so a bit of pimping on there would add to the numbers.
