That sounds like a good idea providing you could get enough people to do it.

Out of interest are people with disabilities able to take part on general trackdays at the moment ?

I don't know a lot about how the MSA do thing for their events. People like Alex Zinardi have been able to compete in adapted vehicles so they must have rules covering it I guess.

Default Track Day

This could be fun, yet again, we would need to check the rules and regulations. The other problem is as much as I would obviously like to come, so that I could also write about the event, it would also depend where the track day is held, as im living in Scotland, it would be quite a journey if the track was down in England some where, and would be too much for me to drive. It would be great to try and find a track that would allow the majority of members to attend.

Regards
Stuart

As long as you hold a driving licence, I can't see what difference it makes?

I'd love to take part, but I don't think a 940 celebration would be much fun on a track day!!

It certainly shouldn't make a difference, I just asked as I was wondering if there was a need to organise a special event.

Getting out on a track to see how far you can push anything sounds like fun to me I just can't afford to break my only working road car.

you dont need to go fast to have fun, i think your 940 would be great fun. I've seen people take morgan 3 wheels on track get over took by everyone but have the most fun.

I see there has been no progress on this, a shame indeed

Not enough disabled members on the forum to make it realistic?
