MSV Trackdays is one of the largest trackday operators in the UK. It offers various car and bike trackdays, for a range of experience levels, at parent company MotorSport Vision's circuits: Brands Hatch, Oulton Park, Snetterton and Cadwell Park.

Trackdays[edit]

A track day is an organised event in which members of the public are allowed to drive or ride around established motor racing circuits, or alternatively (though far less common) on closed or disused airfields. Most race tracks around the world now provide this facility, whereby any road legal or track prepared vehicle, (car or motorcycle) can be used without speed restriction (as if racing, though the practice of actual racing is almost exclusively forbidden at these events) by members of the public. Criteria for being eligible to participate is usually the holding of a driving licence for the vehicle in question, and the payment of a fee.

There are varying formats for the proceedings, but they usually consist of two or three groups loosely corresponding to an individuals level of experience and/or how quick they are. In 2009 Club MSV announced a new programme of trackdays specifically for novice drivers,[1] in addition to their Intermediate and Advanced programs run at the main MSV circuits. MSVT's access to circuits like Brands Hatch has helped it become one of the UK's largest trackday organisers.

Trackdays are often cited as ideal ways to safely develop essential driving skills,[2] and in 2010 MSVT expanded its portfolio to also offer new 'taster' sessions[3][4]

In 2010, MSVT also launched the Trackday trophy, a race series aimed at trackday enthusiasts who wanted to experience losw-cost, entry-level racing. The Team Trophy was then established in 2011 to provide the next step from the Trackday Trophy.
