Newcomers

Information for Drivers

At Brookthorpe we welcome drivers of all abilities. All of us started as "Newbies" after all ! Feel free to contact the club via the contact page or our Facebook Page.

 

The club is often open on Saturdays for practice unless track maintenance is underway and this is a great opportunity for newcomers to come and meet members of the club and try out the track.

We charge £5.00 per day for practice days and £10.00 on race days. More details can be found on the Racing Tab above

After an extensive refurbishment over the winter Brookthorpe is now an all weather astro track with 3G sand filled Astro covering all areas. The track has had a lot of work done to manage the drainage and as such will be able to run in damp or even wet conditions. There are limits of course and if the UK weather does not play ball we will always give as much notice as possible for cancelled meetings.

The Drivers Rostrum is spacious, fully covered and offers good visibility of the whole track. We have 240AC power now available for battery charging and also a compressor for cleaning off the dirt !

 

Catering will be in place for race meetings unless otherwise advised.

Parking is on a large, hard gravel surface with good access in all weather conditions.

Brookthorpe run the AMB RC4 decoder system which is suitable for the older 2 wire AMB and newer 3 wire "pure" AMB transponders. Older MRT Transponders will NOT work with the AMB RC4 system so please check if yours is compatible with RC4.

Brookthorpe will continue to develop both on and off the track and we welcome constructive and helpful feedback.
