A few years ago we used to do two of these a year. They were always well attended, and it was a good excuse for a day out with some track action at a moderate price.

Anybody interested if I organise?

To get a club stand we need a minimum of 4 cars.
Paddock passes are £17.50 for drivers with up to 4 passengers included.
Track time is extra per session (£TBC) with a £5 discount for early club bookings.
A Saabs-only session will be £700 divided amongst up to 28 cars.

Passes and track time are now purchased individually, directly from the circuit, with the club ID used in the booking to determine stand size. Not sure how this works on the Saabs-only sessions, maybe I'd need to buy it and people send me the money.

Dates are 4th April and 18th July.

Oh I'd definitely be up for it, although not 4th April as I'm running a team at the 24hr race at Buckmore park that weekend.

I've always loved the action days at Combe, had my 1st taste of track driving there and was hooked ever since.

It was always good fun doing this. Sadly I think it's too much wear and tear on the car now and the money desperately needs to be spent on the bodywork instead. I'll still give it some thought as there is plenty of time yet.

I could be up for this, would depend on getting gearbox issues sorted out and I wouldn't go out in a general session, would have to be saab only. I don't know if you've kept up to date in recent years but it has one of the worst open trackday reputations for people being idiots and unfortunately now seems to attract them.
