Track Day Insurance from InsureMyTrackday.com
Track day insurance is often described as a necessity in order to be able to fully enjoy a track day without the worry that your car could be written off. We have negotiated an exclusive scheme with Insurers to provide an insurance policy that will pay for damages to your car, whether the accident is caused by you or by someone else on the circuit hitting you. Insure My Track Day have developed the first “quote and buy” online system aimed solely at the track day user.

MOTORSPORT AND EQUESTRIAN TRANSPORT VEHICLE AUCTION
THURSDAY 30TH NOVEMBER
Rockingham Motor Speedway, in association with City Auction Group, bring the UK’s first public auction of: Transporters, Trailers and Boxes, from across both the Equestrian and Motorsport world.
I thoroughly enjoyed the track and enjoyed ample time in the car. It was extremely well run with a friendly and helpful atmosphere, I just wish all the track days I have visited were a little more like this!
I wanted to contact you to say what a great venue you have at Rockingham. The catering, the staff, the driving instruction, the circuit and facilities were all excellent. The refreshments provided on the track day were much appreciated as was the use of the pit lane garages. I have been highly recommending you to my friends and look forward to returning myself.
