Find out how fast you really are with Club MSV

Wednesday, February 15 2012

The winter is almost over and with spring comes the start of the motorsport season. Rather than spending the year on the spectator banks, now is the time to enter the world of competition, thanks to Club MSV's How Fast events!

How Fast is tailor made for trackday drivers who are keen on making the next step into competition but would rather gauge their own speed before committing to motorsport. The event is timed but runs to trackday rules, so there is no need to qualify for a competition licence or the expense of car preparation.

To take part in How Fast, all you need to do is book an event, ensure that your car is trackday-ready and turn up on the day - even crash helmets can be hired! You'll get an hour of practice on our West circuit, with Club MSV instructors on hand to offer advice - enough time to learn the corners before the timed sessions begin.

Once practice has been completed, it's time to put your skills to the test. There's all the tension of a Formula 1 qualifying session as each driver has two timed laps to set their best time on the circuit. A clear track and Bedford Autodrome's endless run-off areas provide the perfect excuse to push to the limit and if you get it wrong first time, there's always the next lap.

Times are then added to the How Fast leaderboard, including the car you competed with, plus classes for modified and factory-specification cars. The list can be viewed online here, so you really can find out how fast you are.

Club MSV's How Fast event can be booked for 12 March and 7 May for just £99. To find out more, call 0843 453 3000 or click here.
