    So anyone have the slightest idea if "track time" means having to fight past 30 oil dropping roller skates ?

    Is " Cooper S"
    One class from 1950 to 2020 or is there the slightest chance of someone sensible organising sessions by performance behind the scenes?

    Seen some poor attempts in the past at various mini events,
    never been to Mallory so would have go on track if I went

    Mini united in 2010 was hilarious, Jove and Kavs nearly got thrown off for going faster than the R56 challenge cars as the professional drivers werenít happy about tuned R53s being faater...

    moment a driver commits him or herself to turning the car into the corner’
     Drivers must not overtake in Red zones or after the brake signs
     Make frequent use of mirrors and move over safely to allowquicker cars to pass. Use indicators to assist the
    overtaking driver and make the manoeuvre as safe as possible. Never move off line in a corner.
     All windows should be closed at all times while on track
     Any driver spinning, racing or driving dangerously will be reported and may be refused extra track time
     Drive slowly in the paddock, there will be a lot of pedestrians – be aware of them

     The maximum sound level for your vehicle is 103dB
     The Mallory Park Marshals reserve the right to refuse any car from being driven on the circuit for

     Video Cameras MUST be fixed by means of a mechanical fastening and NOT tape or cable ties. Cameras must
    also not hinder a driver’s vision. A Mallory Park official must check the fixing before being admitted on to the

     Open top vehicles must be fitted with a roll bar/approved windscreen that acts as a roll bar.
     Please ensure that all loose objects are removed from the boot of the car and rear seat.
    Your car, even if it is totally road legal, will not be allowed on the circuit if it does not meet the above
    requirements
    Briefing
    It is a requirement of taking your car onto the circuit that you attend a briefing session beforehand. At the end of the
    briefing you will be issued with a wristband as proof of having attended. You will need to show this to the pit lane
    marshal before access is allowed onto the circuit. Do not remove the band.
    Briefing takes place in the Sign On Building. Please organise yourself to arrive at the briefing room at least 10 minutes
    before your briefing session starts.
    If you miss your briefing time you will not be allowed on track.
    Insurance: It should be noted that standard insurance does not cover track driving. Please make your own arrangements
    for accident cover.
    Fuel Station: Standard petrol is available for purchase on site.
    Waste Disposal: Every effort should be made to ensure that waste oil, petrol and tyres are placed in containers provided.
    Under no circumstances should used tyres be left in the paddock area.
    Driving Safety Tips:
     Make frequent use of mirrors and move over safely to allow quicker cars to pass. Use indicators to assist the
    overtaking driver and make the manoeuvre as safe as possible.
     Slower drivers must be aware of drivers with more competence and allow quicker vehicles to pass efficiently.
    Use indicators if appropriate to assist the overtaking driver and the overtaking driver MUST make the
    manoeuvre as safe as possible. The faster driver MUST give a gap of at least six feet. Drivers seen to be
    deliberately obstructive in the overtaking process will be removed from the circuit to be re-briefed.
     It is advisable not to fill the fuel tank to more than 70% to avoid heavy loading to the vehicle. Equally donot
    let the level fall to a level where surge may occur or even worse run out.
    Flag and traffic light signals
    Should a session be stopped for any reason, red lights will be switched on around the circuit and/or red flag at the side
    of the track
    Red flag/lights – Prepare to stop, check mirrors, slow down to approximately 20mph and follow the officials instructions
    Yellow flag/lights – Indicates danger, slow down considerably, be prepared to take evasive action including stopping if
    necessary. No overtaking.
    Yellow/Red Striped Flags – Indicates oil spills and wet conditions.
    Chequered flag – Indicates that you must come off the track at the end of the lap, continue around the circuit and use
    the pit slip road to exit the track
    Black flag – We have seen something dangerous on your car, slow down and return to the pit lane
    YOU MUST ENSURE YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL TRACK RULES
    How to Get On Track
    1 Ensure your vehicle is suitable for track use
    2 Purchase and retain your track pass
    3 Read all the track rules
    4 Attend Briefing and sign indemnity
    5 Collect wristband and fix on your right wrist
    6 Have you got the correct clothing – arms and legs must be covered
    7 Wear a crash helmet
    8 Queue for your track session
    9 Follow the Track Officials Instructions
    10 Obey the track rules. We are watching you

    Got an answer back within minutes. After exchanging a few emails, it seems there will be food and bar facilities but we'll have to make our own entertainment
    If that's not an opportunity for a monumental piss up, then I don't know what is
