Track Days - Frequently Asked Questions

What is required to participate in a Salone Events track day?

You must hold a full UK drivers licence and present original copy on the day before being allowed on track - WE DO NOT ACCEPT JUNIOR DRIVERS
You must not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
You must not have a medical condition or be on any medication that effects your ability to drive or that can cause sudden symptoms.
You must have your legs fully covered, wear enclosed shoes, and if in an open top vehicle have your arms fully covered.
You must attend the driver safety briefing at the specified time.
You must wear a helmet anytime you are in a vehicle. If you do not have a helmet we can provide one, just add it to your booking when checking out. Cars without a windscreen wear a helmet that covers the whole face.

Failure to adhere to any of the above will result in you being declined access to the track.

What happens on the day?

You will always receive a full itinerary before the event date, however as a general rule the gate will open at 08:00. From there, you head to the sign in desk and then get your car tested for the noise limit level. There is then a mandatory safety briefing at 08:30 before heading out onto track at 09:00. At 12:30 the track will close and you can feast on some lunch before the circuit reopens at 13:30. At 17:00, the event draws to a close - but make sure you collect your gift bag before leaving!

What is the minimum age for drivers and passengers?

Drivers - You must be over the age of 18 and have a full UK drivers licence. We do not accept junior drivers.
Passengers – You must be over the age of 14 and have a parent or legal guardian in attendance if under the age of 18.

Do you permit race testing on your track days?

No, our days are not suited to those wishing to carry out race testing.

Can I book extra drivers and passengers?

You sure can, just add them at the time of booking! We don’t recommend leaving it until the last minute, but if you haven’t booked them in advance then we have facilities to process card payments on the day. If you wait until the day of the event to book on extra drivers and passengers then a gift bag and catering will not be provided for those individuals. There is always a maximum of 2 people in a vehicle at any one time.

What vehicles are usually on your track days?

Our track days usually consist of supercars, hypercars, race cars and high-performance vehicles.

Do you provide the vehicles for your track days?

We do not provide vehicles for our track days, so you must bring your own car otherwise you might be a bit disappointed! You can purchase an additional drivers ticket at the discretion of the owner of the vehicle. Alternatively, we offer passenger rides subject to the approval of the driver.

What does “noise limit” mean?

Race circuits are often located near to business and residential areas. To ensure that the circuits are being kind to neighbours, certain tracks have a noise limit. This is known as a Decibel (dB) reading.
All cars are subject to scrutineering before being allowed on track. If you know your car is excessively loud you may want to source a silencer to avoid disappointment as readings over the noise limit will not be allowed on track.
Having said this, our Donington track day on the 24th August is unsilenced, so go wild!

Are your events suitable if I have never done a track day?

If you are new to track days do not worry – we are here to help! In the driver briefing you will be made aware of how to stay safe on track and be given tips on how to drive at your best.
If it is your first track day, we strongly recommend one of our track days at Goodwood Motor Circuit as tuition can be provided.

Do you offer half day track days?

All of our days are full days, but we do have the option to add additional drivers, so if you can only do half a day someone else can do the other half if you are happy to share the vehicle.

What is there to do when not on track?

We have a range of partners that will be present at some of our track days which are always fun to chat to, as well as the Salone Events team! And of course, it is always fun to stand back and watch others push their cars to the limits.

What is included in the gift bags?

You have to book on for a track day to find out!

What if I need to refuel during the day?

There are fuel stations very near to all of the circuits we attend!

Are there charging points located at the circuits?

Silverstone and Goodwood Motor Circuit offer car charging facilities. For other circuits charging points can be found nearby.

What about clothing - Do I need racing overalls?

Racing overalls are not required although you might be more comfortable wearing one. In all cars your legs must be fully covered, and suitable footwear worn - no heels or flip flops! Open top cars require arms to be fully covered. Helmets are required in all vehicles but if you do not have your own we can provide one – just add it as a requirement to your booking!

Do I get photos of the day?

Feel Good Films will be there to capture some shots but these are generalised images of the day and not specific to your car. For all of our track days we have additional packages that you can purchase at the time of booking! All of the photos and videos shown on our website are from Feel Good Films – they’re awesome!

Do you accept junior drivers on your track days?

No, all drivers must have a full valid UK drivers licence which must be presented on the day of the event.

What they say about us

A great day, thank you! Well organised and safe both on track and off with COVID precautions – suburb job by the Salone Events and Goodwood teams. Lots of laps right up until 5pm with a good, safe standard of fellow drivers in a nice, relaxed environment. Would strongly recommend their track days!

Darren Goddard, McLaren Automotive

To begin with we had a chat through an outline brief, they then took over the planning, marketing and handling of enquiries and bookings. On the day, she got everything set up and the whole morning ran without a hitch, giving us time to engage with our clients and know that everything was taken care of! If you want your event organiser to deliver above and beyond your expectations, be sure to make Bernadette at Salone Events a key part of your team!

Harries Coffee

A really terrific day. Superb organisation, a great collection of drivers and cars, relaxed and undaunting with excellent and uncluttered track time. 5*!

James Jaffa, Jaffa & Co

Salone Events work efficiently, respond to requests well and think of ideas for events that we had and never would think of. Blown away!

David Bibbs

We asked Bernadette at Salone Events to organise something special for our employees. This was a day for our employees to relax and for us to show how much they mean to us as a company. Bernadette went above and beyond for us, anyone looking to organise an event needs to speak to Salone Events!

Phil, Far2Kleen

I booked to go to The Goodwood Revival with Salone Events. I have been before and loved it, but was always interested in some of the hospitality on offer as I often enjoy the racing and it’s nice to have somewhere to go and have a base. Bernadette talked me through the options and I decided on The Goodwood Mess. Bernadette was extremely helpful and friendly throughout and made the day so much more enjoyable than my previous experiences at Revival. Bernadette was on hand throughout the day so I was able to relax and enjoy some quality racing, metres away from the action. Incredible experience and will definitely be booking again.
