Hello all,

I'm new on here and new to BMWs but having just got one I thought I would invite you all down the RAF Marham to have a play round our airfield.

We have been holding the event for the last 6 years and have raised over £160,000 - -All for charity!!

Our airfield is an active fighter airfield so is in very very good condition... Unlike some of those other track day events ;)

The track is 3 miles long and is a real mix.

Here's the entry that's on Pistonheads and I hope some of you can come down to help us raise a bit of money :)

Cheers

George


We at RAF Marham are holding the next Charity Track Weekend on the 9th and 10th of April. You and all of your members are invited to attend our event.

We on the track day team have listen very carefully to all of your suggestions over the years and we are pleased to announce a number of improvements to our event.

The first change is the new Marham Track Days Website. This website will have all the usual facilities for booking and paying (PayPal) for entry. PLEASE DO NOT SEND CHEQUES ANYMORE. The website will also contain all driving information, maps, photos of past events and FAQs. No need for moderators to collect details anymore. We will take all the info we need from our website.

Once a member has entered their details and payment they will have access to a secure area within the site which will give details of timings, maps, FAQs and driver rules etc etc.

The Second change is to the format of the day. For the first time in our 6 year history we will be changing the track direction half way through the day (lunch break). This means that you get 2 TRACKS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!! This should help out with tyre, suspension and break wear too :)


Prices are unchanged for 2011 at £60 per car and first driver. £10 for each additional person MAX OF 4 People in any vehicle. If you book the whole weekend your passengers come free on the second day :)

E.g. Car + Driver = £60
+3 passengers = Total = £90 for one day

If coming for two days
Car + Driver = £120
+3 passengers = Total = £150 for the whole weekend saving £30 :)

We have 180 car places per day, 360 places in total.

This does look like a great day out, anyone out ther done track days before? A really boring question but if you take your car on a decent day on the track, will you ruin a set of tyres or is that going a bit far? Sorry, never done it before but happy to consider it :thumbsup

If you use a brand new set of tyres you will prob knock half the life off of them. We used 1 set of tyres for 2 track days at silverstone....:thumbsup

Best bet is get small/standard wheels on and fit part worns on then I guess?

Still bumps up the cost tho :frown

No idea where you got this one from. We do ask that you have one but no timescale on it.

We're a bit more relaxed here at RAF Marham. It has more of a club meet feel to it than a strict track day. I'm sure those that have been before will back me up on that one :)

We do have a mobile tyre fitter turning up so if you want to just bring one set of wheels/tyres then he can fit some new ones before you hit the roads.

Or - - if you want to bring some part worns to play with he'll swap them on to your wheels for a fiver per corner - All for charity :)

His advert will be on our new website if you want to order new rubber.

Sounds like a cracking day out but to nail half if not all of my tyres is min £350 so not cheap. I would like to attend one in the future though chaps :thumbsup

Track Weekend moved >>>

All.

It is with great regret that I have to inform you that we have had to postpone the track weekend planned for 9/10 April. This is due to operational reasons. I have no doubt that you will all have seen the news recently and RAF Marham in the spotlight. We are as gutted as you all are about this, these events are the highlight of our year and it is our pleasure to host you.

We will return bigger and better in late summer (date TBC) and we are looking at new ways to evolve the event and make it even more enjoyable for you.

We will over the next few days be refunding all of the money (some £10,500) that has been paid in so far. This needs to be done on an individual basis so will take a little time, rest assured though, you will all get your money back!

I can only apologise on behalf of the entire team here, sadly some things are simply out of our control.

I will update you with regards to the event in late summer as soon as I have any further information.

Regards

RAF Marham Track Day Team
