R29 Thruxton Driving DayMember event

This day at Thruxston is great fun and provides a great opportunity to learn a lot about car handling on both the track and skid pan.

Take one of the course cars out on track with advice from an instructor.  Perfect your lines and understand the limits of the car and driver.

The skid pan is a highly polished wet concrete environment where you can learn the limits of your car in a safe and controlled environment.  When do you expect the car to break away from you? can you keep it pointing in the right direction? What happens when you loose control?

Spaces for the event are limited and we will promote event to other regions in mid may to ensure we meet the numbers required to run the event. So please book to secure your place. 

It is possible to register a friend - as track cars are provided and time on the skid pan can be shared.

Date: Friday, 29 July
Start: 9am
Venue: Thruxton
Price: £189.50 per person

Following the success of the previous events in 2021,  2022 and 2023, Region 29 have organised a Driving Day for up to 32 members at Thruxton Motorsport Centre, on Friday, 19 of July 2024.
The day will involve the Skid Pan and then either the Cayman 1-2-1, Alpine 1-2-1 or the Racing Car Experience, for an excellent inclusive price of £189.50 per driver for the day (only a £9.84 increase on last year).
Details of each event are covered on the Thruxton website and extra Experiences, including a sideways drive with Tiff Niddell, can be booked in advance or possibly on the day for friends and family.
The R29 participants will be split into two groups of 16 drivers, where:

  • Group One - morning skid pan, afternoon circuit

Please note:
  • The skid pan sessions will be based on you driving your own car, "run what ya brung"

The event is only open to current PCGB members.
