ROCKINGHAM NEW SUMMER SOCIALS
1st May 2016
Looking for something different to fill your evenings? The Rockingham Summer Social aims to recreate the buzz you get at car meets, rather than focusing solely on track activity. The three-hour event will be held between 6pm and 9pm on the first Thursday of every month, running right through to September.
Entry to the event costs just £2 per person, the main focus of the event will be the social side providing a safe, friendly environment for car enthusiasts to rock up and meet like-minded people after a hard day’s work.
Situated at the heart of the meet, the Inner Paddock behind the pit garages, is ideal for those who feel more at home showing off their pride and joy or discussing pristine bodywork and listening to finely tuned engines over a cuppa.
For those who would like the chance to test their need for speed as well as their car’s agility, there’s the Summer Social Sprint Challenge. Following the popularity of the activity back in December, a new layout in the Outer Paddock awaits those looking for a bit of friendly competition. Entry costs just £10 for three runs, with prizes for those topping the leader board at the end of the season.
Or for those who prefer to get on track, the two-hour open pit lane session gives participants the flexibility to drive the 1.97-mile International Super Sportscar Circuit as much as they’d like. Drivers will receive a full safety briefing covering everything from track rules, driving techniques and familiarisation laps. Priced £85, limited places will be available so places must be booked in advance.
Rockingham’s track day co-ordinator, Will Thomas, said: “This is more than just another track day, it is about providing the opportunity for those who are passionate about their cars to meet up with like-minded people and talk cars, cars and more cars!
“The summer socials will be held in the early evening, so ideal for those who want to have some fun after a hard day at work or those just looking to make the most of the longer days. So whether you love cars, want to get on track, a member of a club or forum, the Rockingham Summer Socials is a must.”
Car club and trade stands are also welcome to attend the Sumer Social, and can be booked via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about this event or track days in general visit www.rockingham.co.uk or follow us on Facebook/RockinghamUK.
