Details:

RAF Marham Charity Track Day Weekend


RAF Marham would like to invite you to a Charity Track Day Weekend on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th April 2010.

The track uses a combination of the airfield's main runway and taxiways resulting in a track that is around 3 miles long consisting of wide, smooth tarmac and concrete with lots of safe run offs.
There will be approx 1 mile of the main runway in use with many sweeping curves and chicanes along the taxiways:ylsuper:.

The Track Days will run from around 9am to 4:30pm on both days, split into either 30 or 60-minute sessions depending on numbers of participants. All the necessary facilities, such as toilets, catering, drinks, marshalling, medical and fire cover to support the event will be on hand.

The atmosphere and event is relaxed, enjoyable and safe.:bigthumb:

All participants who will be going onto the track, either as driver or passenger, will need a helmet.

Race suits are not needed, but natural fibre clothes with full sleeves and legs are strongly recommended.

Cars must be safe and in road-worthy condition:p, with normal seat belts as a minimum, and a fire extinguisher secured safely in the car (a plumbed in system is not necessary).

If the car is driven to the event then it must have valid insurance, road tax and MOT.

For those driving open or soft top cars, irrespective of whether the hood is raised or lowered, it is strongly recommended that appropriate extra rollover protection is properly fitted to the car, unless the car's windscreen structure was specifically designed to provide such protection.

Please note, due to lack of space, only vehicles driving on the event, and tow vehicles where applicable, will be allowed access - all passengers must arrive in participating vehicles.

Note we now have to implement a noise limit to reduce impact on local residential areas. No unsilenced exhaust systems will be permitted. A noise limit of 105 dB will be enforced (measured at 0.5m and 45 degree angle from exhaust exit at 2/3 of max rpm). Cars exceeding this limit will not be permitted on track.

Sharing a car is permitted (i.e. alternating drivers between sessions) and drivers are allowed to carry one passenger in the car onto the track, but passengers must also comply with regard to helmet and clothing and be over 16 years of age. All drivers and passengers will be required to sign a disclaimer. Spectating is not a possibility unless the individual is coming to assist someone who is driving - the reason for this is quite simple - the event insurance premiums and Health & Safety requirements go through the roof astronomically otherwise, so by restricting it to participants and assistants, it makes the event manageable, safer, more relaxed and enjoyable and importantly keeps the cost down to you.

It is important to note that the track does attract stones. The track will be swept prior to the event to minimise stones but if you drive directly behind the car in front along the main straights your car could be subject to stone chips. If you’re worried about this it is advisable to fit bonnet protection or drive with this in mind throughout the event.

PLEASE NOTE: RAF Marham is a front line operational air base and as such, any operational commitments on that weekend would lead to the Track Day being canceled. This is however quite unlikely but prior notice will be given and any money paid up front would be fully reimbursed.

Important:
For security reasons, every person entering the Base including all passengers must be security vetted in advance. Everyone entering the Base will be required to present Photo ID.
