Default Real track day for Cobra in France

Real track day for Cobra in France
For the first time since a long time, a track day on a real track will be held for Cobra in France. It is on the circuit of Lurcy Levis, located near Nevers and it will gather Cobra fans who enjoy track. This is not a competition but the opportunity to use the Cobra as we like, on a real race track. One of the aims of this Circuit Day is to compare and test different types of Cobra replicas and even real Cobra.
It will be held on April 15th 2012.
The price is 150 Euros, reduced to 140 Euros for Cobra fans registered on the forum:
Cobra - Forum Cobra - GT40 - Shelby - Forum 427 Racing • Page d’index

N.B.: to read the thread concerning this track day, you just have to register on the site main page as a new user. The details of the track day will then become visible under the section: "Actualites et Rassemblements".

That sounds like a lot of fun Queenie! It will be interesting to see the test and comparison results for a variety of different Cobras. With all of the travel plans this year, I wish I could squeeze in a trip to France in April!

There also will be a professional driver pilot who will try the different cars (if owners agree) to explain what could be the improvements to the different models.

Hey Bourrret,

I would love to be there but I would have some issues crossing the pond with my trailer in tow. I wish you the best and for any of your mates on the fence about putting their cars on the track... just do it!

I guarantee you will have the time of your life and you will appreciate your Cobra and be a much better driver when you finish the day.

Good Luck

Clois Harlan

I already participated to track days in U.K. at Elvington and greatly enjoyed it.

Bourret, I knew you had had some track time but I was trying to encourage any of your locals that had never been on the track to give it a try

I hope I didn't offend you.

Absolutely not offended, I know that I talked about my drag races but I was not sure I wrote about some race track I did. Of course, I try to convince all my colleagues owning a Cobra to go to this event but many of them prefer to show their car instead of using it on a track.

Bourret meant to say, April 15th... this is going to be fun.

Pete, lets go! But seriously, I'm would like to go, but it will depend on the flights from Chicago to Paris.

Hi Arnaud,

As you're supposed to transport your valuable and fragile items in the cabin, maybe you could try to carry on your Kirkham ?

Hope there'll be some flight you can grab ! Sounds like we'll have some fun, and I heard that the retired french professionnal driver who will be there, is one of the greatest.

Bob

That'd be an average of 80 miles per hour! Perhaps you mean 480 kilometres, which is a little over 300 miles.

EDIT - It's 561 km, apparently - 6 hours and 22 minutes, according to Google Maps.

What a great idea! A Cobra track day! I'd love to go along to that, even though I am but a Cobra wannabe at the moment. I have been Cobra-obsessed since the age of 15. I shall own a Cobra replica some day - and I do mean replica. As in a facsimile.

Have fun on track!

Paul

Sorry, I made a big mistake looking on paper maps but I do not where.
As pointed out by CobraBoy and according to Google Earth, the distance is 561km = 347miles and the time is usually 6hrs21 min.
But a Cobra should make an average of 80mph when the driver has an american licence and driving in France (just a little fine to pay and no US licence loss

I'll try to stuff the Kirkham in the overhead bins

I really hope the flights work out as I'm really looking forward to 1) meeting everybody, 2) go to France again, 3) hang out at a track day, and 3) ride in the new "Peugeot" (and 4 to meet and stay with you Bob, of course!)


Cobraboy, what's wrong with an average of 80 mph? Last summer I average 90mph on my motorcycle over a 300 miles distance (from Chicago suburbs to Road America track and back). I do, and don't, recommend it
