Retro & Classic Track Day
Location: Blyton Park
Blyton Park was the dream of Richard Usher, a racing driver and all-round motorsports enthusiast who wanted to build his own race track. The result of a very large investment, Blyton has quickly gained a reputation as the UK’s friendliest race track – meaning it is one of our favourites too.
The course may be short at 1.6 miles but it has been designed to be technically demanding and is frequently used by trade publications and motor manufacturers to test their cars as it offers a good mix of technical corners and straights.
The incredibly popular Magnitude Events Retro & Heritage Track Event is back. This is an event aimed at owners of older, slower cars who wish to experience their vehicles at a brisk pace but without sharing track time with hardcore racers.
As a general rule, we allow any vehicle pre-1995, but certain later vehicles are permitted if they are in keeping with the spirit of the day (replicas, etc). If your vehicle model was introduced before 1995 and the performance of yours is not significantly different, those are generally permissable but check with us if you have any queries.
This is our first visit for Retro vehicles to Blyton Park, and Blyton’s tight and varied corners mean that you’ll be able to really lean on your cars and get to feel how they handle. The track is not especially wide, so the sensation of speed is pleasant, unlike certain tracks (Silverstone!)
Our Blyton Classic Track Event also includes FREE FOOD, DRINK & PHOTOGRAPHY
With over 25 years of collective experience managing track days throughout the UK Including Brands Hatch, Goodwood and Silverstone the Magnitude Events team can guarantee you’re in safe hands.
Never been on track before in your car?
Not to worry we have an approachable team of seasoned professionals that will be there to answer any questions you may have. Preparing your car for going out on circuit is essential and the responsibility of all drivers on our track days. Your car should be in 100% road-worthy condition, fault free and all loose items removed from inside the car. Fluid levels should be topped up and properly sealed. Tyres should be in good condition and above 4mm in tread depth across the face of the tyre, not only this but the tyres should have the correct pressures.
“Thanks for a fantastic event, I’ll definitely be booking up for 2016, both track time and more tuition.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day, thanks again to the whole Magnitude team, all the marshals and Lotus for allowing us to use such a fantastic facility”
Dominic Mitchell (Caterham 7 Classic)

“I booked in to go and spectate yesterday and had a lovely time in the Norfolk sunshine. If anyone is nervous about taking their car on track because it is their pride and joy then you would not need to worry at this event. It was a well organised event and it is focused more around people enjoying their cars around an iconic track appose to setting the fastest lap time. The staff space the cars release on track so there is no pressure from someone coming up behind you quickly and pressuring you to drive beyond your limits. The only pressure it appeared was the pressure that you place on yourself to carry and better line and more speed. Martin Donnelly was there offering instruction too. How can you get better instruction that a ex F1 driver.
The reason why I went to have a look is because I have always been worried about taking my 40 year old Europa around a track (exception of parade laps). I have attended other track days and there seems to be more modern cars with inexperienced drivers bombing passed you and then almost barrel rolling their cars around the bends. My Europa is my pride and joy and I never fancied some idiot crashing into the side or rear of it. I will however happily sign up to this event if hosted in the future as the participants seemed to get what it was all about (maybe a very good brief at the beginning of the day before then event at a guess).”
