AutoX / AutoSolo (UK?)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone uses the car in these type of events in UK? Seem quite popular in the US

 

I saw Goodwood Road Race Club put on a couple but that was just spring and last week...

 

Anyone has any experience?

I used used to do something which is essentially AutoSolo with a company called Car Limits at Northweald Airfield.  It’s essentially small tracks set up and you are timed around them.  Very good fun days and quite good value too.

Was before I had my Cayman but, 

@Andy and @Lodgey and me used to get quite competitive in our MX-5s - naturally I was always quickest ;) 

 

I wonder if we should arrange a club event...

Sounds like a similar theme to the ‘how fast’ events that run at Bedford Autodrome. 

 

I tried to drum up interest on here for a Caymans only one a couple of months back, but drew a blank - couldn’t get enough numbers to make it work... ?

Not for me Pietro - mines being ‘put to bed’ till March now, except for any odd dry sunny wknd days. 

 

But I’ll try to set up a Bedford how fast club event next year ???

No his was Black, which as we know is the colour that makes drivers think they are the fastest, when they've barely got out of first gear by the time others have already crossed the finish line.....

I think you'll find that the Silver MX5's were by far the fastest.

I wonder if there's spaces at brands or Bedford when you could organise a course with cones - if that's what you mean?

 

I'm going up to Donington and they are using a tarmac space there as far as I understand
