Blyton Test Day- And What a Day!

Blyton Test Day 3rd June 2013
If you missed this you missed a great day - so read on and see why you should have been there.
For us from the south of England it was a long drive up to Blyton but while we anticipated a great day of testing we could not anticipate how good it really was going to be. The team from Revington, Neil, Sue, Marcus, Natalie and Toby Cole set off on Sunday to ease the pain of the journey. Staying in the area overnight on Sunday made the start to the day a lot easier for them.

Sunday dawned with a forecast for a clear day with very low wind and for once the forecast was correct. Clear blue skies from start to finish with only a hint of a breeze. The race-box and awning were erected to provide sun shade  rather than cover from the rain and the  test day began.

We took 6VC so that Marcus, Natalie and Toby could see how the car performed and get to grips with its handling. After the safety briefing the car was on the go all day with only short breaks for drivers and car to allow both to take a short breather and advantage of the free tea and coffee that was on offer all day. The track was busy the whole day with the 20 cars and 50 drivers exploring both their own and their cars limits. It truly was a great circuit to have a test day with wide run off areas, no Armco or other barriers to spoil someones day.
We took a few spares from stock to support the event, normal service items that we thought drivers might need during the day, oil, plugs, points, belts etc but fortunately we did not need to open the boxes.

Neil said that “it was great a day giving Marcus Natalie and Toby an opportunity to explore the cars limits without the pressure of being in a competitive environment and on such a wide open circuit. This will give them a great start to a new season which I know they are all looking forward to”.

We are already being asked when the next day will be. We are fairly certain there will be another so watch out for the next date and make sure you book your slot, you will not be disappointed.
