    I'm considering renting my local track at some point in the summer and after a talk with a friend we think we may make it an "event".

    So some places for people on the track, some places for people just wanting to gather for a "car show" type thing, we'll get some snap wagons on the got and a professional photographer or 2 and perhaps do some passenger rides for people who want a spin etc.

    For now I'm just kinda checking for interest as I'll probably be hiring it anyway just so I can run around it if nothing else but perhaps sharing the cost would be a good idea + it saves me destroying the mustang's diff

    This is the track https://www.blytonpark.co.uk/

    Its going to cost me 3k to hire out the track for the day anyway so price would depend on how many people want to come i guess not looking to cover all of the cost but maybe if i could get enough people to cover half of it that'd be good.

    Yeah, trust me i know the pains! If it was just for photo ops i think you maybe able to nab some time on a track days lunch break etc as long as you promised you wouldn't be speeding etc, as lets be honest even to get awesome track shots you need not move over 20mph (my profile pic was took at 7mph and i look like i'm going about 100 lol!)

    3k for the track for a day aint bad, i know Stangfest has costed us/nemesis etc north of £15k to hire for the day + all the extra work that goes into it. Big expense, big fun! More than welcome to come down to that, probably be cheaper than this day if you're gonna stump up £1500 lol!
