    How many tracks have you visited?

    How many race circuits have you visited?

    As their are many ways to interpret this, I am quoting my personal favourite magazine from an issue a couple of months a go to set up the rules:

    "There is no official committee ruling on how you accrue a track list but, as your secondary school teacher would have said, if you cheat you're just cheating yourself. As far as I'm concerned the track has to be active. This means either a race or test is taking place. It may be that you are testing [or racing] at the track yourself. A track that is closed doesn't count - you can't pull up to the gates at Mugello or somewhere and claim that you'be been. And the track needs to be in contemporary use. I've walked the remains of the banking at Brooklands scores of times, but it doesn't mean I've been to the track at Brooklands. Racing ceased in 1939 and, unless you are currently in your very late seventies at least, it isn't on your list either. The same applies to street tracks. Driving around the streets of Monaco doesn't count (unless you are in a race). And driving through the car park of the Caesars Palace hotel is 100% ineligible.

    Donington is my local track , Many trackdays here along with BTCC and Bikes.
    Nordschleife for trackdays , Nurburgring GP just to visit unfortunately so doesn’t count.
    Spa Franchorchamps not a trackday but have driven the track after the 24hrs of Spa 2007 whilst they was tidying up , we literally drove down the road that leads to an entrance at La Source and drove round steadily.
    Silverstone F1 GP , 96 I believe and 2008 on a very wet day.
    Brands Hatch track days
    Mallory Park track days
    Castle comb track day but not driving.

    Would love to visit Bathurst even though the track seems to hate me

    Proper tracks, only been to one. But it's a good one. Mount Panorama, Bathurst.
    Me, my dad, a friend of dad's and his son who was my age, all went there for the weekend back in 1996 to watch the Bathurst 1000 as it was known back then. Camped up the top at Mcphillamy Park. I was young-ish, but from what i remember, Saturday was nice, Sunday it rained and we left halfway through the race to come home. Watched the end of the race on tv, by which time it had stopped raining. Typical. We did see Alan Jones' Falcon catch on fire though..

    And here's a picture of it i just found online.


    Other than that, i've made a few visits to the local speedway and drag strip to spectate events over the years.

    Basically all the tracks the BTCC goes (or went, in the case of Rockingham) to, plus Castle Combe, although I watch more than just BTCC at the MSV-owned circuits as I have a season pass for them. Going to try to get to Cadwell this year as it's another MSV track, but they don't have that many 4-wheel events to choose from.

    Over the years I've been to:

    Brands Hatch (GP & Indy) - BTCC, DTM, British & Blancpain GT, Trucks, GT & LMP3 Cup, Britcar, various Historic meetings etc etc...
    Thruxton - BTCC
    Donington Park (GP & National) - BTCC, British GT, GT & LMP3 Cup, World Series by Renault
    Oulton Park (International & Island) - BTCC, British GT, Gold Cup
    Knockhill - BTCC
    Snetterton - BTCC, British GT, GT & LMP3 Cup
    Croft - BTCC
    Rockingham - BTCC
    Silverstone (GP & National) - F1 (once), WEC, BTCC, British & Blancpain GT, Silverstone Classic
    Castle Combe - Club racing (spectating!), trackday
    System: Core i7-7700HQ @ 2.8GHz | 16GB RAM | GTX1070 (laptop) 8GB | 250GB M.2 + 960GB SSD + 2TB HDD| Win10 Home 64bit | Xbox 360 Controller | Oculus Rift CV1
