CANCELLATION POLICY: NO REFUNDS ON DEPOSITS OR FINAL PAYMENTS.

THE PLAN

10.30pm RENDEZVOUS THEN BRUNCH

Enjoy your Saturday morning without stress: Thruxton is less than 2 hours from central London and we aren't meeting until 10.30pm. Check in at reception, then enjoy a leisurely   Brunch in the cafe of eggs, bacon sausages and tomato (healthy options available too). Briefing starts at 11.50am SHARP.

11.50am START - INSTRUCTION

Thruxton’s senior ARDS Race Instructor (google that to know why it’s important) will brief you on all the necessary: circuit layout, racing line, turn in, apex, exit, braking, throttle control, driving position, steering, pedal control, gear change, understanding paddle shift, overtaking and flag signals.

YOU’LL THEN GET TO KNOW THE TRACK...

Now pay attention 007. Driving on a race circuit is very different to normal road driving. So, you’ll need to learn the racing line and braking points. So Thruxton’s race instructors will take you round the track 3 times in a very suped-up car to give you the the low down.

NEXT: 3 LAPS IN THE PORSCHE CAYMAN

Now that you know the track – in theory at least - you can practise for real in one of the most well balanced, mid engine performance cars available – the Porsche Cayman. Go for it. You’re on the UK’s fastest racetrack after all. And it's safe. The danger is you'll be so overwhelmed with joy you’ll want to buy the car. So, please leave the Black Amex behind.

THEN: 5 LAPS IN FORMULA RENAULT RACING CAR..

Watching Formula 1 will never be the same again after you've experienced driving a proper single seat racing car at Thruxton. Many current F1 drivers raced in this formula, including Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton. You'll feel like them too, once you're seated, with racing straps fitted around you, as the engine bursts into life. You'll stare competitively at your fellow Revellers, imagining them to be Niki Lauda to your James Hunt.  After a lap or two of being cocooned in this pocket rocket that can beat Putin's latest nuclear missile, everything clicks into place. You'll relish the Formula Renault's instant feedback and responsiveness through the seat of your pants, as your car and you become one. Savour this unique, unforgettable experience.

FINALLY: EXPERIENCE A HAIR RAISING BANK-ROBBER-GETAWAY LAP DRIVEN BY PRO RACING DRIVER...

You will be driven by a professional racing driver in a very powerful Skoda Octavia VRS, at it's full potential. Remember, Thruxton is the UK's FASTEST race circuit... It's a just a lap. But that's all you'll need..

THEN HOTEL, SIESTA AND DINNER AT THE WHITE HART, STOCKBRIDGE…

We'll then retire to the White Hart, in nearby Stockbridge. There we'll have dinner and stay. It was once a  pub. But Fullers' Brewery recently refurbished it and made it into a delightful gastro-style pub/restaurant with very comfortable rooms in which to stay. (Revellers have stayed there on a number of occasions and were delighted.) On Saturday evening, we'll have a dinner party there, joined by some Revellers from Hampshire and Wiltshire - who are always great company.  

SUNDAY...

For those feeling energetic, there's a 1 hour plus "autumn" walk to the Tally Ho in Broughton, partly along the Clarendon Way, crossing the scenic River Test and through some rolling hills. Pub Sunday Roast awaits. For those that want to relax with the Sunday papers, that's fine. We'll all meet at the Tally Ho for lunch at 2pm. 

After lunch we slowly saunter back to London. (We'd have gotten all that fast driving out of our system by then...)

ADDRESS:

TRANSPORT

Ideally drive down or get a lift. Revellers' Club management can hook drivers up with passengers. (Just get in touch with David Bradley - 0207 439 1234. )

Allow 90 minutes from central London assuming good traffic conditions. 

Trains go to nearby Andover from Waterloo and Clapham Junction. There's one that leaves Waterloo at 9.20am (or 9.27am from Clapham Junction) which arrives in Andover at 10.23am. From there take a taxi (a rank is outside the station) to Thruxton. It takes 15 minutes and costs between £20 - £30.  


IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

Price includes: Event management (including coordinating travel arrangements, arranging accommodation etc.);  hotel (inc breakfast) Saturday night; all track day tuition, use of cars, briefings and rides. 

Price excludes: all drinks (hot, cold soft and alcoholic), meals and transport. 

Please note, as mentioned above, your Revellers' Club host for the weekend, David Bradley, will have his bill divided by all others eating. This is because the overall cost has been minimised as much as possible. 

Bad Weather - if Thruxton deems the track to be unsafe owing to snow, massively strong winds, rain or ice, the racing will be cancelled and we will be invited back another time without charge - either as a group or individually, at our convenience. The remainder of the weekend will continue without the racing element. (Thruxton has said that conditions will have to be severe for this to happen. Most wind and rain will not jeopardise track activities.)

Cancellation policy: there are no refunds, reflecting that deposits to Thruxton can't be reclaimed and that a huge amount of effort goes into the preparation of weekends like this. However, we have split the payments into 2, so that at least if your plans change before 1st October, you forego £95 and not the full ticket price.
