It’s Trax time again! This year it was bigger and better than ever! We really all need to get Segways or something for next year!!
One of the best ways to enjoy owning and driving a performance car is to take it to a track and push it – and yourself – to the limit! Many people will own a fast car for years and never really use it to its full potential as its just not safe to do so on the roads.
During the summer months there are plenty of RWYB days at santa pod and track days at Silverstone and anyone with a driving licence and a road legal car can enter. The cost varies depending on the event but whatever the cost you definitely get your moneys worth.
You don’t have to prepare your car much – if at all – for track use, maybe just a fire extinguisher and a motorcycle helmets. Many people cover their car front and rear lights in tape so that if smashed they dont shatter. Some also cover their number plates with a X, but you’ll have to ask someone that does it why 😉
I will warn you in advance though, it has been known to be quite addictive! Friends of ours have ended up making their car so ‘track orientated’ that they have had to garage the cars for winter and buying daily runabouts to get to work in!

For Maxxd.com, the show season is officially closed when this show comes round. So we normally like to camp for the 2 days before, and then enjoy the show on the sunday. This year most of the guys were going on the track, and hardly any of us were able to camp. we had to set off early and join the queues like everyone else!
It was worth the wait though, and the rain only made the track action more entertaining!
Widdo & Ollie got up at 7am on a SUNDAY to head down to the famous silverstone circuit to watch some proper cars rip roar round the track!
They took some pics and wrote a report, the link is below! Thanks guys!
