Of course we are committed to safety and would never suggest that anyone should break the law. This is the reason that Terminal Velocity was set up, to give owners the opportunity to experience the full potential of their cars performance without endangering their own licence or liberty or anyone else's safety. We know that many people do track days for similar reasons, but not everyone wants to place their pride and joy at the mercy of other drivers...
All our events are now two day events, standing quarter mile events on the Saturdays and rolling half mile events on the Sundays. You can see now how your car compares to your mates or to that Supercar that you've always fancied owning, over an internationally recognised distance. If you prefer to run solo that is fine, just let our start Marshal know and they will send you on your own.
On the day of your event, once everyone has signed on and had their safety briefing, you will be given a number and a corresponding sticker for your car. Everyone MUST do a sighting run after the safety briefing in order that you get to see the run and where the finish line is, how long the braking area is etc Once done the runway goes live and the event begins, you head to the start and upon the starter giving you the ok you go and unleash every horse that you have! We will record your top speed and you will slow to the end of the runway before being directed back to do it all again.
Please also note that the payment of £125 is for you as a driver. If you have more than one car that you want to bring that is fine. So if you want to run a different car you can, but do make sure that you register them all so that we know. Each extra driver sharing a car incurs a premium of an additional £50.
These events are speed trials, this means that you will get the opportunity to drive your car as fast as you can within a safe, secure and most importantly, legal environment.
For most owners of high performance vehicles, their cars top speed is just a number that they read in the manufacturers brochure and they can occasionally reel out in the pub to impress their friends. Here at Terminal Velocity we very much believe that if it was made to do it, then it should!.
