Are spectators allowed and how much are tickets?
As this event is being hosted in October, we are confident that spectators will be allowed to attend considering the current Covid regulations, but of course we will update you if this changes and if spectators need to do anything before attending.
Spectators for the VWG track day will always be free, we don’t believe in charging for spectators at events like this once!
What do I need to make sure I have?
Please make sure you have and bring the following items with you for the track day.
1. A valid Uk Driving License, you must bring this on the day.
2. A print out / screenshot of your VWG Track Day ticket provided by Car Calendar.
3. Driver’s indemnity form (we will send these out via email closer to the date. if not, these can be filled in on site)
4. A Helmet please make sure you bring your own helmet; Helmet hire maybe not be available due to Covid 19 regulations
5. You must make sure your legs and arms are covered so make sure you bring somthing that covers you up, long armed shirt and jeans will be fine.
Is there a noise limit?
Yes Blyton park have a noise limit of 95db on a drive by.
Do drivers and passangers have to wear a seatbelt?
We still can't belive the fact we have been asked this, Yes all drivers and passangers have to wear a seatbelt when on track.
If you are caught not wearing one you will be kicked off site faster than you can say "French Car"
What do you mean by "We take driving standards and etiquette very seriously at the PFC Track Day" ?
It's honestly quite simple if you are not following the rules put in place by Blyton park and VWG staff or you are driving like a moron putting yourself, passengers, other drivers, and spectators in danger you will be black flagged and depending on severity of the situation you could be removed from the day all together with no refund and you will not be allowed to return in the future.
We at the PFC Magazine understand that you can make mistakes but there is a difference from an honest mistake to being a danger to yourself and others.
Don’t want to get black flagged? Drive to your capabilities, don’t show off, follow the rules and you will have a great time without seeing the black flag.
Is this event shared with the VWG Magazine?
Yes, as is the same as last year we will be sharing this day with our sister magazine the VWG Magazine, all this means is there will be some German cars out on track.
This is down to Blyton Park not having the availability for us to run two sperate days or we just can't get the numbers to make is possible to run the event, believe it or not running a track day is expensive.
If we ever have the chance to split the event into two separate days, we will do so!
Is this Track Day just for French Cars?
Short answer yes, long answer no.
We will be sharing this day with our sister magazine the VWG Magazine so you will see VAG cars out on track and in the paddock. So, if you have a friend with a VAG car, you can invite them just, they must get tickets from the VWG website
Can other make of cars come that are not VW group or French made, no not really.
