Also not driven the eastern circuit so not against that, as long as someone who has driven it doesn’t come out and say it’s rubbish!

I'd prefer keeping it as it is. I think that back straight is the main overtaking point before the bends and shirt straights where overtaking gets tasty.

Which could end up with cars being bunched up.

I'd personally stick with the well known layout to most with the long back straight.

What about changing it for both sessions.

By that I mean run both layouts for the morning and then both layouts for the afternoon.

Or is that too much work?

Eastern layout has very little overtake oppertunities, it's also normally covered in shite as part of it's layout is used as their rally track (Chapmans - K7 - trubshaws)
Just be stuck behind slower cars for half a lap, every lap as there's no space between chapmans and the wriggler for any overtakes at all on the eastern circuit.
The straight from port vite to ushers 2 becomes a slow lane for people coming in to the pits.

Dont believe me..
skip to about 8 mins in. It'll be like that all day with the amount of cars we have on track.

I’m all for changing circuits and that , but at blyton I can’t see that going down well. The people that enjoy taking it easy on track are just going to cause a traffic jam for the more experienced folks.

The normal track layout might be a tad boring for some as after a few times you learn the Circuit enough to be competent with it , YET that layout is better for the newbies aswell, plenty of longer straights and corners

I can’t see it going down very well, IMO better to not change the layout now as people have booked track time for the normal circuit. Should of really been mentioned of the possibility when booking tickets.

That’s my two pence worth, not here to cause arguments.

Normal layout all day, the other layout looks very tight and difficult to overtake slower cars.

Nothing has been set in stone or changed yet, so seeing as there is reluctance by a few people we will stick with the usual layout.

We'd never had the option before, but it's something that the new track day organisers we are using this year do on their own days, so I wanted to gauge opinion before the day. We don't want people getting bored of the same track every year.

We might look at opinions again before launching next years event.

@Nik I noticed the afternoon track time is sold out, but the full day is still available, so would you be able to go on in the afternoon if you purchased a full day?

Yeah it let’s you on for both the morning and afternoon sessions mate.

If you mean can you just go on in the afternoon then yes to that too. You’ll just need to sit in on the afternoon briefing with the other afternoon only people.

If you go on track morning and afternoon do you need to attend both briefings still?

Yeah we technically have one afternoon slot available, but due to the way we decided to split up our tickets, it is reserved for whoever buys the last remaining Full Day slot.

And only one briefing needs to be attended, but you will probably need to visit the sign on office before the start of the afternoon session to get a new (different coloured) wristband. I'll be able to clarify this nearer the event, but this is how I expect it to work.

There is now only a few morning track slots left .. so if you are planning on attending and going on track you need to book asap to avoid disappointment.

Hang about... subject to approval from 'the boss'... I might actually be able to make it this year! Ironically it won't be in the Trophy but it would still be awesome to get along, even if just for the Saturday. Or stay in a hotel. I'm old and a wuss so no camping. And I won't be out on track. LOL! :)

Is parking on hard standing / concrete, tarmac? :)

@Nik / @Sunglasses_Ron - due to other commitments I can only make Saturday daytime (all day). Can I buy a weekend ticket still so that I can enjoy a bit of the evening meal and entertainment before I have to leave later on Saturday night? :)
Yeah that's fine Andy. We have a few people who buy the weekend ticket to stay for the evening food etc, but sneak out early :p

I haven't set a cut off date for advanced tickets yet, it will depend on how busy things are in the run up. I would advise people to get tickets bought by the end of June if they want to guarantee the advanced prices. Limited numbers of on the day tickets will be available but as always are slightly more expensive.
