Drive Spa - Standard Trackdays

What is a Standard Trackday?

A trackday allows you to drive on track in a closed track event. Prior registration is normally required, and the number of spaces can vary for the maximum number of entries on track. A trackday entry fee is paid to enter your car and the first driver of the car.

Ideally, the best way to get the most out of your time on track is to join an RSRSpa Premium Trackday (More info here...). If the available dates unfortunately don't suit your schedule, then a Standard Trackday, operated in co-operation with a third party trackday is a possible alternative.

The format of the trackday can vary depending on the organiser of the trackday. This can include options like open pitlane (where access to the track is un-restricted, you can drive whenever you want), by sessions (where pre-arranged groups of cars drive on the circuit indivdually, for a certain amount of time - and you must wait while the other groups go).
