1st February 2020
Javelin Track Days
New for 2020
Novice track days.
Designed to be a more relaxed introduction to track days these days will put you on track with drivers who are relative newbies to driving on track. The day will run in what is known as a Sessioned format of 3 groups, a Novice Only session being one. Each group getting 20 minutes track time every hour giving approx 120 minutes track time during the day.
Each event will offer the opportunity of an extended safety briefing and a circuit masterclass by a top tutor. Instructors will also be on hand to sit in your car and give you a really good insight into lines and track etiquette etc (additional fees apply).
Based at Mallory Park in the midlands the relatively short but very technical circuit is and ideal starter venue.
Drivers should ideally have done less than 3 track days or genuinely feel they need some friendly guidance.
Cars used should be road cars or track cars not too dissimilar to road cars.
Your track time can be shared with an additional driver if you wish.
Passengers over 14 will be allowed (Under 18s require parental consent).
Helmet Hire is also available.

Formula Track Days
Do you have a Formula (single seater, open wheel) race or sprint car? Whether it is in regular use or just sitting there unloved because you do not want to pay the high test day prices or jump through the hoops of getting a race licence to drive it. At Javelin Trackdays we field questions all the time asking if drivers can use formula cars on trackdays, well now we can say yes.
In co-operation with the enlightened management at Mallory Park we are introducing Formula Trackdays. The events will take place in conjunction with a sessioned trackday. Formula cars will get 20 minutes tracktime per hour (the aim is to provide approx. 120 mins of tracktime throughout the day) . To ensure a safe environment Strict Trackday etiquette rules will apply. Overtaking on the left hand side only on straights although we will be allowing courteous overtaking around Gerrards. Other groups on the day will run for Closed Wheel Novices and Club / Marque Specific.
Numbers will initially be restricted to a maximum of just 18 cars per session. Additional Drivers (sharing the tracktime) that meet the licence and safety criteria below will also be allowed to share your tracktime. So you can let others enjoy the thrill of driving a proper race car on track. Initially we will be allowing a small number of 7 style cars to participate within the Formula Sessions should the required number of Formula Cars not be reached although the ideal is to run Formula only sessions.
The requirements will be :-
- Single Seat – Open Wheel Design of reputable manufacture.
- Lightweight Caterham, Lotus 7 derived cars.
- All cars must have Adequate Roll Over Protection (i.e. Race specification).
- All Cars must not exceed a “Drive By” Noise Limit of 103dba.

- Must wear Suitable Full Face Helmet, Overalls, Gloves and suitable footwear.
