We're going to be using Hottrax in feb - on a Sunday, for the first time.
Usually use No Limits, and have used FE a couple of times too.

Yep I've used them, no problems with them and the membership does look good, but it's gone up from 1000 to 1500 this year and they only allow so many weekend dates now which they previously didn't.

Technically you probably only need to do 15 dates at the bigger circuits and you break even, anymore is a bonus.

Try here for the hottrax dates, amongst others. Just click on the word bike in the trackdays blurb - and there is a full calendar each month

yes they have limited some of the access to weekend dates etc, and id agree id need to be doing at least 15 days to consider it, in the absence of their dates i cant decide if it suits me yet, and didnt want to apperar to be plugging their organisation.

Also I think it limits which dates/circuits you do, if you've got a max of 45 trackdays in a year with one company for a set fee paid up front, you're unlikely to do any other track days that year, so you might decide not to do a date which is really convenient because it's not with Hottrax and end up doing another one with Hottrax with some added inconvenience.

I know 2 people who did the membership with them last year and they both did around 40 dates each so it obviously paid dividends for them

I used Hottrax two or three times last year, had no problems, they were well run and well organised, no complaints.
