    Shell, is it possible to put my name down on the list but pay on the day only once I have confirmed my car will pass the noise test please, like I did at Snetterton last year? It passed at Snett last year but I am dubious about the result they gave me as I have a pretty loud exhaust on the car …

    Cheers,

    Daz

    Hi Daz

    sure – I’ll put you down as a possible, but if the day gets full, I can’t save you a space sorry.

    It is one of the quick tracks due to the two long straights, over 2 miles long. Vernonjones has had a look and thinks it will suit the GTRs. Entries need to be in soon as Mechell has to sort security clearance with Lotus as this is where all the development work and testing goes on for the new cars. When Lotus was in the ownership of the late Colin Chapman they would test the F1 cars here also.
