Liverpool Motor Club is not a commercial organisation, but is a motor club run by volunteers.
We don’t have the overheads of an office or staff, and none of our officials are paid. All proceeds from our motorsport activities are ploughed back into our events and help keep our booking/entry fees low. Our aim is to run safe, friendly events to the highest of standards for the benefit of motorsport enthusiasts. We don’t have any automated response systems, every contact you make with us will be handled individually by one of the officials that you will see at our events so please allow a little time for us to respond, especially at busy times.

Liverpool Motor Club – run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts!


Bookings for the 6th October Aintree Track Day are now open!

Last year’s track days sold out rapidly and several drivers were disappointed not to be able to take part. Whilst we are sorry that we could not accommodate everyone, we are sure you will agree that by keeping to our tried and tested policy of running sessions, not open pit lane, and restricting the number of cars on track to a maximum of 20 cars at any one time, we are running events that are safe and enjoyable for all our participants.

      • Aintree Club Circuit is 1.5 miles long, 35 feet wide, well surfaced (and quick!)
      • Driving standards observed, and unacceptable behaviour acted upon.
      • Event designed for sensible enthusiasts who don’t take themselves too seriously (i.e. a fun day out)
      • LMC track days comply with the safety requirements of the Association of Track Day Organisers (ATDO)
      • Max 20 cars on track at any one time
      • It is the resposibility of participants to supply whatever safety kit they feel is appropriate to keep them safe. A suitable crash helmet is compulsory – see ‘Important Information‘ below.
      • Participants must supply their own car. We do not supply, hire  or lend cars for participants to drive
    • When deciding which group to enter, please consider how quickly you are likely to be driving compared with other cars in that group. Do not over estimate your or your car’s likely performance.
    • Group A (Novice). Quick and will have some highly experienced drivers in it who choose this group because their cars are only moderately quick
    • Group B (Intermediate) Quicker, will have cars in it that are somewhat quicker than Group A, but not as quick as Group C
    • Group C (Expert) Quickest, will have cars that are quicker still, most lapping at full race speeds
    • Pick a group that is likely to match your speed, not just your experience. If you book for a quicker group than the one you should be in, your enjoyment will be compromised as you will be concentrating on keeping out of the way of faster cars rather than enjoying your time on track .

To read about Track Day Preparation, we have posted an article here. See also the excellent information at DrivingFast.net.


Please do not over estimate your ability or that of your car by booking for the “experienced” group unless you really are quick on track. You will spend much of your time watching your mirrors and keeping out of the way of others which will spoil your day, and could risk yours and other drivers’ safety.


HOW TO BOOK

Firstly, CLICK HERE to read the Event Rules and Site Regulations and then the ‘Important Information section below about safety.
By submitting a booking, you agree to comply with our Event Rules and Site Regulations, and acknowledge the details contained in the ‘Important Information’ section below .

 Then click on the BOOK TRACKDAY button at the bottom of this page. Up to 2 additional drivers to share your car can be booked at the same time on-line. All drivers must be pre-booked, we do not accept any bookings for additional drivers on the day.

You will be able to book for up to three drivers per car on-line so please have the information for all drivers to hand before you start the booking process. Adding an extra driver later will require you to complete a separate booking form to post to us with payment, which is likely to delay your booking with the risk that the event may be full by the time we receive it.

Please remember that the email address that you give us on the booking form will be used to send you your acknowledgement so please ensure it is correct.

We regret that neither e-mail nor fax applications can be accepted and we must point out that under no circumstances will bookings be accepted on the day for either main or additional drivers.
For further information, please contact our track day entries coordinator Phil Howarth on 07784 224 731 (before 9pm please) or by e-mail via the Trackday Bookings email link on our Contact Us page.

Important information:

All cars must be mechanically and structurally sound and All participants must wear a correctly fitting fire resistant crash helmet in good condition. We consider that only helmets complying with the following standards are considered suitable: FIA 8860-2004, FIA 8860-2010, FIA 8859-2015, Snell SA2005*, SA2010, SA2015, SAH2010, SFI31.1A, SFI31.2A (*until end of 2018). Flame-resistant overalls and gloves are strongly recommended. Arms & legs must be covered (no T shirts or shorts). Cars must be adequately silenced to max 105dbA (static). Rear view mirrors are compulsory. Passengers over the age of 16 years may be carried (one at a time) but they & the parent/guardian must have completed the appropriate ‘signing-on’ forms acknowledging the risks involved. The event will be fully marshalled and safety cover will be provided. Driving standards will be closely observed and the organisers will exclude anyone considered to be driving without due regard for the safety of themselves or other participants. The organisers do not provide any safety helmets or clothing. We recommend that track day participants use safety equipment that is at least as good as the minimum standard required for competitive motorsport. Cars must have a towing point of adequate strength at both front & rear identified using a contrasting colour. A suitable point on the roll hoop will generally suffice for open single seater and open sports racing cars.
Slick (untreaded) tyres are not allowed unless the vehicle is fitted with
an adequate Roll Over Protection System (i.e. Roll Cage/Roll hoop). Racing will not be permitted.

All sessions are run on the Aintree Club Circuit which forms part of the track used for five British Grand Prix in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Don’t miss your chance to drive this historic Circuit, where Stirling Moss secured his first ever Grand Prix win in 1955 and, in 1962, Jim Clark won the last ever British Grand Prix to be held at Aintree. The Track Days are run to the same high standard as our award winning Championship Sprints, and with the same emphasis on a safe, enjoyable day for all.
