the trouble sward is that even a weekday Donington is 15-20K to rent... weekend is i think a complete no go and the evenings make it cst viable...

We will have to bite the bullet & take a day off work and if some of us have a distance to travel to Donnington or wherever the trackday is held let's book a b & b nearby. Smile

But Kevin, with those lovely new xenons, you'll be able to travel home after dark with a magnificent white carpet of light spread in front of you Wink

Depending on dates, sounds great - having hammered around Donington in a race car (and come off a few times), I for one would be taking it pretty carefully at some points on that track!
