    Bit of a faf having it so far south and living in Scotland... And a Monday-Tuesday isn't that convenient as now I'll have to cancel like 30+ patients to make it down.

    Oh well, if that's the only opportunity to test it out then that's what it will have to be for me. That sucks about being in holiday, surely there will be another opportunity for you, maybe a more local drive?

    Was rather pissed off that it's a Monday ... Then realised it's at Thruxton and right next to where I work!

    Was going to fall for my deposit back, but will do the track day first then get the money back.

    Money back for me too. Ordered another new Cayman instead. Went to Geneva to see the Supra and really liked it but my OPC offered a deal I couldn’t refuse on a new 718.

    What kind of deal did you get??

    Went to my OPC, not much by way of offerings on a 718 :(

    Managed to haggle approx 7.5% off a Cayman T. Same deal on Boxster T if I’d wanted it. Also approx 8% off stock (unregistered) regular 718s.
    I did the deal (on a T) as they also offered a fantastic trade in on my current 718. Expecting delivery in June. Not sure if I just got lucky, a mate enquired on the same T deal as me a couple of weeks later. Couldn’t find an OPC with any remaining build slots until the end of the year. Offered him my Supra slot, but he likes German, so he’s gone looking at Z4s.
    Hope you find something.

    Is it just for individuals or can you take someone with you?

    520 miles each way for me! Hope it's worth the trip...

    You can take someone with you, just need to give their details on the booking form

    Booked for Tuesday afternoon.

    Out of PURE chance - its 7 mins drive down the road from my office :)

    Taking a mate along with me - might as well make the most of it right?

    I’ve booked the Tuesday afternoon for myself and a mate. Flying down from Edinburgh to Southampton and then hiring a Car from there.
