Track Days at Lydden Hill
With the ever increasing number of vehicles on the roads as well as the legal implications of driving your vehicle to its full potential on the public highway there are few opportunities to fully explore the performance of your vehicle. Track days are the ideal way of learning more about your vehicle in a safe and controlled non-competitive environment.
Lydden Hill offers a number of track days throughout the year, please see opposite for details and check the calendar for details of other events for the year. Full safety and instructional briefings will be given before the Track day starts to ensure that all drivers are aware of any supplementary regulations that will be applied throughout the day. Above all though - track days are designed to be fun!
