Dear participants and colleagues,

Finally comes this special moment of the year that is the Miguel Martinez Memorial, the day when while we celebrate our partner, we give the opportunity to those who normally do not occupy the top of the time to be the masters of the track.


The participants of T3 in the morning and the open track in the afternoon all have experience and those who do not, are in Initiation, as it should be. Most of you have already shared a track and are regulars at our events.


Both for track time and number of participants, our events set a high standard of quality and a track day with Trackrat is one in which meeting the objectives with which you go to the track is practically guaranteed.


On this occasion, the T3 groups will be about 10 cars, the open track a total of 25 and Initiation, as always, the maximum of 12, so it is clear that we play a lot of track per head.

The sound limit for cars is 95dB at 3,000rpm and the circuit is carrying out sonometric controls before entering the track!

The WEATHER is sunny, without the wind that in Calafat we know how uncomfortable it can be and a temperature of 13ºC at midday, which for February, is a joy.

The company will be the best, pilots all so eager to enjoy themselves that you will undoubtedly give the day a great atmosphere.


On Saturday 26th, those of you who may need it, you can drop off your car and/or trailer at the circuit from 18:00 to 20:00.

On Sunday 5, we will open the gates of the circuit at 07:30. From there until 08:30 for the Full Day and T3, you will have time to complete the administrative formalities, always at the organization’s box, which will be on the 25th.

At 08:30 in the restaurant of the circuit will be the briefing of pilots, which will be attended by attendance is mandatoryIf any reason prevents you from doing so or if you arrive late to the circuit, please let us know, it is your obligation as well as ours to make sure that you have received the pertinent instructions by the time you enter the track.

Those of T2 Initiation who will start the theory at 09:40 and where the contents of the briefing are already included, you have until this time to do the paperwork and those who will run in the afternoon track, you should arrive around 12:30 to have time to do the papers, participate in the Homage Lap and in the Photo Rolling those who have taken it with the registration and in the briefing of pilots of the Open Track.

Thus, at 09:00 the track will open and will start with 25-minute runs, All-In group and Sport group, two runs of each group.

At 09:40 the theoretical initiation will start in the training room and at 10:40 the first initiation session will take place.

Again at 11:10, the All-In and Sport heats followed by the second initiation heat, and when this is finished, the Fast Series, so we will arrive at 13:00 when the track closes for lunch until 14:00 and we will take the opportunity to make everyone go out on track and pay tribute to our colleague Miguel in the company of his family giving a lap of the circuit.

And for those of you who have caught it with the inscription, those very special photos of the Photo-rolling.

13:30, briefing for the Open Pit and at 14:00, we will be back with another 3 HOURS open pit session! That will last until 17:00 when the event will conclude and we will go back home with a lot of tiredness and a big smile on our faces.


ACC participants have their own schedule, which starting with the circuit opening at the same time for everyone, gives you until 09:30 to complete the formalities prior to attending your drivers’ briefing and the subsequent entry onto the track.

In order to make it more comfortable for you, you have been assigned space in paddock 2 so that the guests who are expected to come to be your audience, can park close to you and so that you can all enjoy together such a special day.

From there, you have 3 runs of 20 minutes to enjoy your cars, always keeping in mind that the track exits and other interruptions that occur during these 3 runs, will be subtracted from the time available to you, so keep this in mind while you are driving.

Once the third round has concluded, at 1:00 p.m., during the lunch break, we will proceed to the Photo-rollingWe will all enter the track together for three laps preceded by the organization’s vehicle that will take the photographer to get some pictures that we hope will make the memory of this day unforgettable.

During these laps, and as the track is actually closed, the pace will be very moderate and it is not necessary to wear a helmet inside the vehicles.


We take this opportunity to congratulate you for the great participation in this first edition of an event, in which you will always have our full collaboration to make it an imperative appointment for lovers of Abarth Classics.


The first thing you should do when you arrive at the circuit is to go to the organization’s box for the administrative accreditations.

The organization’s box is number 25. It will be easy to recognize it by the banners and because it is the last one on the right and the closest to the entrance to the track. There you will have to be accredited and collect the stickers, bracelets, timing, etc., that identify you and your car as participants in the event.

Remember that at the price of 30€ you can insure co-drivers the same day of the trackday and that doing it beforehand (until Saturday at 12H) costs 20€ and also contributes to a better organization of the event. Co-drivers can register through the following link

Be sure to visit that, of course, once you are going to enter the track pilot and copilot carry the bracelet If this is not the case, the stewards will not allow the vehicle to access the track with the disruption that this may represent to you and other participants.


In addition to that, only the drivers are authorized to wear an open or JET helmet without a mask inside the car. In fact, it is the only time that you can be without a mask in the entire circuit area, as well as in the restaurant while eating.

In the organization box you will have available helmets for rent, license plate covers, pressure gauges and other items from the TRACKRAT STORE, such as our Trackrat Petrolwear line t-shirts. And in the adjoining box you will have a compressor and mechanical assistance. Assistance, not miracles!


As usual in our events, the participants in the Full day session have a spot in the box included with the registration.

If you do not have a box or you do not need the one you have assigned, but you have materials in the car that can bother you while you are on the track, you can leave them safely in the organization’s box.

Here is the list of assigned pit boxes.


There will be a restaurant service inside the paddock of the circuit, from 08:00 to 16:00, coffee, sandwiches and self-service menu, the latter at the price of 15 €.
