I'm already signed up but for those that are still thinking about it, this is a great day out and I can't think of another event where you get the track to yourself like you do at Curbourgh. There is only 1 car on track at a time and that makes it much safer than a regular track day when there can be tens of cars on track with lots of rules on driving style and behaviour to maintain safety.
With this event you have the track to yourself, you'll not be harassed by other drivers trying to overtake, you'll not have any risk of hitting another car on track and there are no kerbs to make the day expensive, just acres of grass if you do miss a turn and get lost.
Come rain or shine this event works brilliantly, If it is sunny then you'll get peak exhilaration as you have a go at all the corners. If it raining then you have the golden opportunity to learn how your car handles on the edge in a controlled environment where there are no kerbs. Where else are you going to learn how your car starts to lose it and practice correcting it safely. Try doing that on a regular track day and you'll get a black flag and be sent home straight away but not at Curbourgh as there is only 1 car on track at a time.
Curbourgh can be as much about learning how your car handles and becoming a better, more instinctive driver in a controlled environment as it about driving exhilaration on track. A few laps in and you get a lifetimes worth of experience in how to handle your car and react instinctively. Back on the public road that instinctive reflex training can be a lifesaver, for this reason alone I think it is worth making time for and well worth the money.

I am struggling to understand the apparent lack of interest here. 7 years ago we had a good turn out, since then we have sold over 1000 Exocet's, so where are they all? Surely this is too good an opportunity to miss, great fun, a wonderful way to test your car, use it for what it was designed for and have huge fun whilst spending time with like minded friendly folk in a safe environment. £50 has to be by far the best value track day in the world. Please consider dusting off your car or getting it running in time for this once a year opportunity. You know you will have a good time if you make that little bit of effort. See you there guys.
Whilst in no position to come myself (NZ's a little far from Curbourgh) I too can't see why this event would not be full pretty much from opening announcement.
50 quid is nothing for something like this and I agree fully with the comments from daydreamer and Mills Extreme Vehicles as to what you find out about your car and yourself when driving to your limits.
I've read comments previously about weather well from personal experience an Exo in the rain is even more fun than in the dry once you get you head around it
Most of the events I've done here in NZ have been in this type of format, one car on the course at once against the clock and the only limits being yoursef, I would pick this format over a public track day any day of the week.
