Total Vauxhall Trackday 12th Aug Elvington

Total Vauxhall Track Day @ Elvington (York) Friday August 12
Total Vauxhall magazine is planning a Track Day which is expected to take place at Elvington Airfield (near York) on Friday August 12. The venue is provisionally booked and will be fully confirmed as soon as attendance levels have been gauged. Other than forwarding participant details to Javelin Trackdays (who are hosting the event on our behalf) Total Vauxhall’s involvement is minimal.
Health and safety, insurance and revenue issues are complex for such an event, which is why we’ve approached the experts Javelin Trackdays to conduct all the necessary proceedings on our behalf. What the two parties (Javelin Trackdays and Total Vauxhall) have agreed upon so far, is this:
Format: Open pit lane (not timed sessions)
Capacity: max 40 cars (at least 18 of which can be on the circuit simultaneously), 09.30 brief, on track at 10.00, half hour lunch break, track closes 16.30
Cost: £95.00 for 1 car and driver (additional driver/passengers £10)
Cars: Must be Vauxhalls (obviously), no scrutineering as such, but any car considered by the organisers to be in poor mechanical condition, and therefore representing a danger to other participants, may be refused admission, without refund.
Attitude: No regulations will be imposed on having fun, but safety must be a priority, go as fast as you like and hang the **** out if you want to, but only where and when it’s safe to do so, flag codes and overtaking rules apply, and will be explained during morning briefing at the venue.
Reg’s Regulations are thus: 105 db (static) noise limit for all cars, full driving license must be presented, seatbelts, helmets and long sleeves & trousers must be worn on track
If you can blag the day off work and you’re up for all of that, you need to get your name down ASAP. Demand is expected to be high and so places will be granted on a ‘first come first served’ (model depending) basis. We have to be a bit selective, so as not to end up with 32 Corsas, 7 Novas and an Astra. Ideally, of the 40 cars permitted, we’d like to see some of each of all the models covered in Total Vauxhall magazine.
