There can be a lot of questions if you've never been out on track before, so here is an ever expanding list of Q&A's.


What is a Track Day or Car Control Day?
A Track day is a non-competitive, controlled event where you can drive your car around a real established motor racing circuit or closed airfield without speed restrictions. We require that you hold a full driving license, and that your car is road legal. Driving manners are expected to be high, and beginners are always welcome.
Car Control days are designed to be fun, safe and also educational. As we run on a wide open space around cones there is also very little risk of impact damage to cars which naturally is of major concern to many participants.

I'm totally new to track driving
You may find that booking some introductory tuition is a good idea. It's available at all of our events and is most often able to be booked in advance along with the purchase of our events from a drop down box on the relevant page.

I'm worried about the chances of damage to my car
The common misconception is that track driving is more dangerous than road driving. It is in fact the other way round. On track you have no oncoming traffic, almost no chance of pedestrians or animals on track and run off areas for if things do go wrong. We take every reasonable precaution in making sure you get your precious car home in one piece. However, It is sensible to be aware that accidents can happen to even the most experienced driver. Most circuits have been designed in order to allow for human and mechanical error with generous run off points, soft crash barriers or gravel traps in the more technical areas. 

I'm worried I won’t be fast enough on track
People can often talk the talk but only a few can walk the walk. You can go at whatever speed you are comfortable with. The rules that we have set for track driving mean that you will not get hassled by faster cars. When there are 2 or more cars on track at once we remove all forms of competition by banning stop watch timing and aggressive over taking. If at any stage you feel uncomfortable or unhappy about your driving please speak to staff who will be able to help.

Do I need a crash helmet?
We require drivers to wear a helmet on both our track days and car control days.  If you don't own one, don't worry. You can hire one from us for just £10.00 for the full day by paying cash at the event.

Can I bring a passenger?
Yes of course, charges for passengers can vary according to our events. Please see further details on the specific event you are planning to book.
Refund Policy
If canceled outside of 30 days of the event, the cost of the event will be refunded LESS 25% for administration charges. Refunds are not permitted within 30 days of the event.
Refunds are only made to the person who purchased the event place, and are refunded via the original means of payment.

Force Majeure
If Single Marque Events or its track partners are unable to provide the event due to unforeseen circumstances such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, industrial action, government restriction or other restriction imposed by the circuit or venue, Single Marque Events will issue a credit at its discretion up to the value of the event and activities booked. Events that suffer a delayed start or curtailed early will not normally qualify for credit. Any credit will be issued at the company and staff's discretion sole discretion.

I want to know more about an event I plan to book
