Saabtrackday update

We now have more than 30 Saabs signed up for TD05 which means that we are down to the last few spaces.

It is still possible to participate in TD05 by visiting www.saabtrackday.com and downloaded the entry form.

If you wish to participate then we recommend that you get your entry in as soon as possible as we strongly expect to fill all 40 spaces.


Info posted previously:

Venue: Goodwood Circuit
Date: 19 May 2005

Saabscene is pleased to announce the date and venue of our third-annual exclusively Saab track day.


Saabscene and UKSaabs have joined together organise Saab Trackday 2005 at Goodwood Circuit, near Chichester in West Sussex on 19th May 2005.

Where?

Goodwood Circuit is situated just of the A286 near Chichester and is easily accessible along the A27 from the east or west. Drivers travelling south can use A3/A27 or A23/A27.

Goodwood Circuit is an extraordinary place being the only classic circuit in the world to remain entirely in its original form. Nestling at the foot of the South Downs, the sea often visible just a few miles distant, the picturesque venue is a two-mile, gently undulating circuit that is very well suited to the power of Saab turbo engines. From the technical Woodcote corner to St. Marys, the circuit is challenging but rewarding to the Saab driver.


When?

19th May 2005.


Tell me more!

Booking is strictly limited to 40 cars (only 10 cars will be on the track at any one time).

Noise Limits: 98dB 0.5m, 45° from exhaust 3/4 max RPM

It is probable that we will run the day on the same basis as our successful Anglesey track days with sessions, dependent on experience, during the morning and an open pit in the afternoon.

More information can be found at www.saabtrackday.com


What's the cost?

As with our previous trackday events, the cost of Saab Trackday 2005 is divided between all the partipants. On the basis that we have 40 cars participating the cost will be £155 per person. This really is excellent value for money (Anglesey 2004 - which was also excellent value for money but is a smaller and more remote circuit cost £117.50 per person by way of comparison)

For this we get exclusive use of the track for the day complete with professional marshalls, a manned ambulance, public liability insurance and an ARDS qualified instructor.


How do I book?

The event is strictly limited to 40 Saabs and is on a first-come first-served basis. To book you will need to download and complete the event application form. Then send this with a deposit, minimum £50 (payable to Saabscene), to the address specified.

The latest date for receipt of deposits is 31st January 2005.

The latest date for receipt of balance is 31st March 2005 and this will be dependent on number of participants. We intend to fill this day with 40 cars in which case the cost should be £155 per person.

Note: Saab Trackday is an entirely non-profit making event. No individual and no third party organisation makes any profit from running this event for the benefit of Saab enthusiasts. The cost of the circuit for the day shared by the participants.

Please note that space is strictly limited and we strongly advise you to get your deposit and application form in as soon as possible.

Great news!

Today we received our 40th deposit for Saabtrackday 2005. This means that 40 people have committed to bringing their Saabs to Goodwood for our third annual Saabtrackday event.

Now that we have secured 40 Saabs we are pleased to announce that the total cost of the event per entrant will be £155.00. Since deposits of £50 have already been paid we ask that the balance of £105.00 is paid before 31st March 2005.

Note, members of the Saab Owners Club receive £20 sponsorship towards the cost of the day thus reducing the trackday cost further. We would like to express our gratitude to the Saab Owners Club for their generous sponsorship of SOC members.

At the present time we are aware that other deposits are on their way to Saabscene. These people will be placed on a reserve list and will be offered a place in the event that any other participant drops out. Entrance to the event has been strictly in order of receipt of deposits. In the event that anyone on the reserve list can not be given a place then their deposit will be refunded in full.

If you have not already completed an entry form, please download one from Saabtrackday website, complete and send to the address on the form together with the balance of £105.00 payable to "Saabscene".

Any questions, please let me know.

Nope. Spectators most welcome - please do come along.

Have a chat with any of the drivers and blag yourself a lift round the circuit
We have free helmet hire on the day (but drivers take priority, please. You are welcome to bring your own helmet if you have one)

Welcome to Saabscene.


At the present time all 40 spaces have been filled. However, last year we had one person drop out on the day and another retire early on - so come along anyway and you might get a chance to drive on the day in the event of no-shows or retirees.
