Oulton Park Porsche RS day - 08/03/19


Recommended Posts

  • Platinum Member

A Porsche only day arranged every year for the past 18/19 years by a couple of guys on the PCGB RS register. 

 

I went this year and it was a brilliant event - a really good atmosphere and sense of camaraderie. Was great to watch 6 Cayman Rs all playing together (every time they overtook me - I was captain slow as it was my first track event in the CS). 

 

Its not just for ‘classic’ RS cars, all Porsche models welcomed - there was even a 911 cup car doing shakedowns on the day with a full race support team. 

 

Will be advertised openly on MSVTs website in the next few weeks. 

 

Pre-sale places available now to previous years participants.

Im already booked on it ???

 

It was a fantastic day this year, a great ‘opener’ to the ‘season’ - much needed after a winter hibernation ?

 

I stayed in a nearby hotel the night before, which I’ll do again for 2019 as it takes 3 hrs or so to drive there from mine. 

 

Only concern this year was the beast from the east snow storms which just about melted away a day or 2 before the event. We seem to get snow later these days - ie Feb / March. But if the track is unable to open / operate due to conditions like snow you get a refund in the form of MSVT vouchers for an alternative track day.

This is forum member Andy Fagan going round very efficiently in his Cayman R on an RS day a couple of years back:

Circuit looks fun and fast!

 

@Windymiller did you hire a garage? They are sold out..

No, they sell out quick. 

 

But theres usually ally someone who will let you deposit your overnight bag etc in theirs.

WTF... Fully booked already! ?

Yep, it’s a popular one in the calendar and does book up really quickly ?

 

perhaps contact MSV and see if there’s a reserves list?

I did a "Porsche Only" day at Brands with 911.UK in August... There were still plenty of spaces on the day too... I was in awe of quite a few GT3 RS's 😵

 

My CS held its own however ( was quite surprised that a few drivers there seemingly forgot they were at a race circuit & were taking the corners at Paddock,  Druids & Clearways like they were off to do their shopping!! 😳)

I did get a tad over zealous in the 1st session & lost the rear going into Druids (too much trail braking) 😄
