1pm RENDEZVOUS AND LUNCH

Enjoy your Saturday morning without stress: Thruxton's less than 2 hours from central London and we aren't meeting until 1pm. We'll gather then in their cafe /restaurant for a very sober lunch, where we sit nervously waiting for the afternoon's hair raising action.

2.20pm 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 WHITE KNUCKLE LAP BY THRUXTON'S STIG...

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..

AFTERWARDS... ENGLAND VS WALES SIX NATIONS RUGBY

Thruxton has arranged for us to watch this exciting match. The racing programme will be finished in time..

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.(Checked by Revellers' Club management, no less.) It's the place locals now go for dinner and is hugely popular during summer with  hordes of trout fisherman who come to Stockbridge from all over the World. We start with drinks and a three course dinner follows.  You can relax; of course there's no driving after dinner.

SUNDAY...

For those feeling energetic, there's a 1 hour plus 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 meetat the Tally Ho for lunch at 2pm.

After lunch we saunter back to London... (we would have gotten all that fast driving out of our system by then... But it will soon be returning.)

Wind and rain will not jeopardise track activities.)
