Fifteen entries already confirmed for Club MSV Trackday Trophy debut

Thursday, March 18 2010

There are now less than two weeks to go until the inaugural round of the Club MSV Trackday Trophy at Brands Hatch on Saturday 27 March, and this year's competitors continued their preparations with a dedicated pre-season test day at the circuit this week.

Fifteen entries have already been confirmed for the series' inaugural 45 minute endurance race next weekend, with a grid of twenty cars expected by the event. The official testing session provided Club MSV's novice racers with the opportunity to build their confidence and pace as well as work on their car set-up.

"Our pre-season test day was another event designed to help drivers make the jump from trackdays into racing," explained Club MSV manager Alex Baker. "For most, it was the first time they'd been on track with overtaking permitted on both sides and it was probably a slightly daunting experience!

"However, everyone coped really well and, with the help of our experienced instructors, most drivers improved their lap times by up to ten seconds and learned a great deal about their car set-up."

The test session also included the opportunity for novice racers to try some practice starts, offering them a raceday scenario that they have not previously experienced during a trackday.

"The test day was a huge success and I think everyone went home with an improved understanding of what to expect come raceday," Baker added.

Entries are still open for Brands Hatch on Saturday 27 March at a cost of £299 including VAT per car, with two drivers sharing. Click Here to find out more.
