Popped over to the Netherlands and did a trackday. Hired an E30 325i race car from some nice dudes at the circuit, had an absolute hoot. So easy to do from Scotland as Zandvoort is only 30mins from Schiphol. Great track, elevation like Knockhill with some fast corners, vid doesn't really do it justice.

Odd rules over there, basically overtake where you want and how you want, like an SMRC testing session. Hardly any marshals there at all but day ran very smoothly.

On the track day before us they did something really interesting. They had a 1hr session of practice starts. About 30 cars in the session, start off in groups of 3, then 6, then 9 etc until it's a full grid at end of session. Do the start, push for 3 or 4 corners then back off and round to S/F line. Great idea to allow folk to get used to starting races with loads of cars around them.

I did like the trackdays at KH where it was pass any side. No longer possible at KH due to insurance requirements though
