While reading "Practical performance car" I came accross a really good sounding trackday combining a v-max, 1/4 and handling circuit. It Turns out it was on pistonheads already so I thought it would be worth mentioning here too!:)
It would be great to get a few soops to the event!

All the contact details are on the pistonheads link below.


RAF HONINGTON CHARITY STATION DRIVING DAYS
EVENT OUTLINE
General

http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?t=298966&f=18&h=0


The Driving Days are non-competitive charity events, similar to the track days held at a motor racing circuit or other airfield venues. The event is defined as motor/leisure and is for drivers of road and race cars. Motorbikes will be included on Sat 23, running in a separate session group. The activity will use runway, taxiways, some grassed areas and participants will require entry through crash gate 2B.
Type of activity
The Driving Days will offer the following:
2 Mile Handling Circuit, run in 20 minute sessions each of 25 cars or 30 bikes.
mile Sprints - one lane only, open throughout the day.
Drift / Handling area - 100m diameter wetted open concrete pan.
VMax run - down the runway, when all other activities have ceased.
All activities are non-competitive.
Sessions/Timings
The event will be run with controlled access sessions to the handling circuit which will be the main activity on the day. Each session will be of 20 minutes duration. Drivers may be divided into groups according to vehicle type and/or car performance. Bikes and cars will not run at the same time. The planned timings below are based on full capacity attendance on both days; they may change and enable more sessions for participants if there are fewer vehicles participating. Groups merging and an open pit lane format may become possible in the afternoons.

Why do events like this always seem to be in East Anglia?

(prevalence of airfields I guess)
