Frequently asked questions
What if this is my first track day?

That is perfectly fine, you will be allocated to the ‘NEW’ group. This group received inclusive, step-by-step guidance to ease you into the track day experience and maximise your enjoyment.

 

Is a Burrows Drive Day a racing event?

No, there is no timing or racing allowed for this event. The focus is on enjoying your performance vehicle in a controlled environment with no pressure.

 

What type of cars will I see? 

Every major exotic car brand you can name from Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Jaguar and others. We’ve even seen two Ferrari F40s hit the track during a Burrows Drive Day event.


Do I need a roll cage? 

No, a road registered Lotus or KTM sports car is all that is required.


How fast can I go? 

There are no speed limits during a Burrows Drive Day, however, the day is designed to be as safe as possible. Drivers are allocated into pre-determined groups based on the prior driving experience and history.


Will other cars be on the track at the same time as me? 

There will be up to 25 other vehicles on the track at any one time.


Do I need special tyres? 

You can use your regular road tyres but another performance-orientated rubber is available for your Lotus or KTM vehicle. Feel free to ask us for any advice.

 

Is extra fuel available? 

The circuit has on-site fuel available. There is also a service station nearby. Either option offers 98 RON unleaded.


Are spectators allowed? 

Yes, you can bring spectators but they must obey all instructions given to them. Note the gourmet lunch is for the driver only; extra lunch places can be purchased prior to the day.
