    Driver standards on track days can be bad at times but on these show days it’s damn right dangerous at times. I remember at Combe for Forge action day last year a guy in a renault 5 went off onto the grass by Camp corner and decided to reverse back onto the track and perform a 3 point turn while there’s people coming towards him. I know Mark Dow well and he’s finding it more difficult than ever running track time on his show days due to insurance and the venues expectations.

    It’s only a matter of time before they pull the track time which is a great shame.

    Yeah it is a shame and I have only been to a forge action day once and it was a propper free for all but I like the fact fcs are only doing big sessions. £25 for 15 mins meant it was a free for all but 75 for 2 hours there where only good confident people on track also means the hero's who have the faster cars with no track experience don't go for the "advance" sessions.

    But it is the reason I've stopped doing sessions at trax.

    NEVER do a track session at a show, majority of people there have no driving etiquette, understanding of their surroundings etc, I was never a massive show-goer years ago when I was into Dubs, but I went to one and signed up for track, I came back in after like 3-4 laps and signed myself off! My friends still do stuff like Trax and then they tell me how bad it is, I do tell them not to but they don't listen lol.
