10 Guests attended our
Pre-Launch at Donington Park.
We recently invited 10 guests to attend a track day hosted by Salone Events, at the Donington Park race circuit.
Our guest list was a mix of individuals who had shown interest in our Motion membership and interested parties known to the PaddlUp team..
It started on Wednesday night with meeting and greeting our guests at Radisson Blu, East Midlands where we met our guests that stayed overnight and enjoyed an evening of chatting and drinks in the hotel bar.
Alarms rang early doors for us to head to the track, in preparation for the arrival of all of our guests. The majority of our guests arrived driving their pride and joys to the circuit. However, we did have one of our guests bring a fully prepared race truck with their 1 series race car housed inside. The 1 series races in the 116 trophy, and this was brought to the track day alongside the owners stunning Shark Blue Porsche 992 GT3.
Our selection of guests cars were very Porsche heavy as we saw a 996 GT3, a 997.2 GT3RS, a few 991 GT3RS’ and a pair of 992 GT3’s taking to our designated pit garages. We were also joined by a Lamborghini Huracan Performante Spider, 488 Pista Spider, Brabus Mercedes 500 and unique Audi R8 V10 plus in Metallic Camouflage Green.
Drivers and their passengers enjoyed a thankfully clear and sunny day in Castle Donington, with them really getting to utilise and enjoy their track time. As an additional offering we had 2 track instructors in case anyone wanted to learn more about the track having not been before, or just to improve their track driving with an experienced racing driver.
Also in attendance were a couple of our consignment vehicles for everyone to admire, including the Ferrari 599 SA Aperta and the Ferrari F430 Challenge. Alongside these vehicles, we took our wrapped Ferrari F40 and hosted 5 competition winners in the afternoon, who got to enjoy their passenger hot laps in the iconic supercar. Safe to say they were beaming with happiness!
On the day, our logistics manager Will decided to dust off his race suit and boots, to take to the track for some team bonding providing some passenger hot laps to members of the team. Will has a background in karting so is no stranger to the race track.
It was a fantastic experience to treat our guests to, who we couldn’t let leave empty handed so they got an exclusive goodie bag to take away. We had a wonderful time chatting and getting to know everyone, and discussing plans for 2022 with our membership and the exclusive events we have lined up.
