Curborough Introduction to Sprinting

Are you interested in finding the limits of your Lotus on track, or would you like to give it a go for the first time?

The Lotus Drivers Club Introduction to Sprinting event at Curborough Sprint Course has a new date of Thursday 15 April 2021. The day will allow you to develop your driving skills and to push your car as far as you like with no other cars on circuit. The day is split in to two track sessions: 10:00-13:00 and 14:00-17:00.

Starting from as little as £115, the entry fee includes takeaway breakfast, tea/coffee, lunch (vegetarian option available) and includes both track sessions.

This is a brilliant chance for anyone with little or no experience of sprinting or trackdays. The controlled environment will allow you to learn to push yourself and your Lotus as far as you like with no other cars on circuit at the same time to worry about. 

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 guidance, spectators will not be allowed at the circuit and passengers must be from the same household.

Thruxton Skid Pan

Thruxton Skid Pan

Thruxton Skid Pan

Thruxton’s newly built skid pan is a wetted low grip facility that provides you with a safe and controlled environment to practice your sleek skills on with very little wear and tear on the tyres or the car itself. Not only is this experience great fun, but more importantly a hugely worthwhile investment in your own and your passengers’ safety.

Be it the first time you’ve controlled a skid, tried steering out of danger, or sensing and recovering an unexpected aquaplane, skid pans are used to teach car control skills that you can only become proficient in from experience and practice. Thruxton’s experienced instructors and staff will be on hand to help you get the most from your time, be it in trying something that you’ve never had the chance to try, or in perfecting your drifting. 

We are all trying our utmost to avoid Covid risk, so you’ll book, be briefed and participate in safety. Additional measures have been put in place to ensure members and staff remain safe whilst attending the skid pan. The session is 4 hours long, with a limited group size to minimise waiting and maximise time spent looking through the side windows as you explore the limits of your Lotus. Spaces are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
