New venues, RAF Odiham?

Post by Fast Phil » Sat Feb 03, 2018 3:32 pm

I know we're looking for some new venues, thought I'd suggest RAF Odiham, in the past they have had track days there, has Odiham been considered ?

Or perhaps...
- Chobham Test Track (Longcross Proving Ground)
- Dunsfold Park, the runway would be perfect for Autosolos

Good suggestions Fast Phil.
Odiham has a ban on all motorsport, after a track day where a landing light was damaged. Odiham is a tier 2 RAF base and is on standby for operations on a 24/7 basis..... not good with damaged landing lights, so the base commander said "no more ".
Longcross is only available week days during day light hours and when there is a filming break.
Dunsfold seems to be extremely hard to deal with and they have a noise issue with the locals.

Bicester is a good venue. As you can imagine, the VSCC guys with 20s Bugattis etc dont have to count the pennies, they probably only deal in Thousands. I am advised that the site charges through the roff, and you have to pay for a set up day too.
However, I will check again.

Simon , when I spectated just before Xmas the VSCC cars were pretty old and mixed regarding their state of condition , certainly no Bentleys or Bugattis . Everything from trials cars , Austin 7 , Singer , Riley and many others. Try contacting the VSCC club for info on that day's cost

Oxford MC are already talking to Bicester Heritage regarding several events. Noise can be an issue and the venue is at the higher end of the cost spectrum!

There some land down near Liss for hire which looks good, it's a bit smaller than Buller Barracks, but might still be big enough...
