[SYD] TRACKED vol 1, Eastern Creek Private Track Day 2nd May 2012

TRACKED volume 1
Eastern Creek Track Day 2012

We are running a PRIVATE track day on Wednesday the 2nd of May 2012 at Eastern Creek raceway.



Arrive: 8am for 8.30am driver briefing
Track: from 9am - 1pm, 6 groups, 20 minutes per run.

GROUP 1: Beginner

The beginner group are for those whom have never tracked their cars before and/or do not want to track their cars competitively. Group 1 will have plenty of training with professional drivers for much of the event.

GROUP 2: Intermediate/Advanced

This group are for those whom have tracked before or are highly competitive.

All cars can be run, only stipulation is all cars must have a passenger seat and all drivers must have all skin covered (hands optional) and must wear a helmet at all times on the track. If you don't have a helmet, you can hire one. (Currently $20)

GROUPS 3, 4, 5: Open

You can nominate yourself to drive in this group on the track. Anybody can run in these groups and it is just for fun!

GROUP 6: Competitive driving

The final group of the day will be run in a more competitive manner. You can nominate yourself to run in this group on the day.

Food is available from the cafe, there are no BBQ facilities.

Spectators are welcome, passengers are not.

We have access to use PIT facilities.

Eastern Creek are not allowed to provide timing, so we will do our own timing and attempt to be as accurate as possible, but please understand it is really only an approximation and may not be accurate.

Overtaking is allowed on the straight only, so very low risk of damage to our cars caused by other drivers!

Costs:

$350 + free t-shirt if paid and registered by 12th April 2012
$375 if paid and registered after 12th April 2012
$400 if paid within after 26th April 2012.

Payment:

Payment can be made by Cash, Bank Deposit or Paypal

OR

Payment can be made by Cash, EFTPOS or Creditcard at Advan Performance Center in Auburn.

Registration form attached!

We will also have t-shirts available, designed by KCR's Johnny for $20 each (all sizes available)

Helmets are $20 if you don't have one, but no guarantee on availability unless you advise in advance.

Prizes:

There will be first, second and third place prizes for group 1 and group 6 as well as trophies.

Address: Gate 7, Eastern Creek Raceway, Off Ferrers Road, Eastern Creek (about 40km northwest of Sydney)



This is a great opportunity to track our cars on a world class race track!

Eastern Creek Raceway is currently in the midst of a $9 000 000 redevelopment. The track day will be run on the NEW GRAND PRIX CONFIGURATION



The track will be running counter-clockwise as it always has been run.

So here you have it people, a chance to run on Australia's ONLY permanent international racing circuit, privately with people you know.

Take a sickie, quit your job, turn off your laptop take the phone off the hook for Wednesday the 2nd of May 2012!

Please post your expressions of interest, questions, concerns below!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Can the same car be shared by multiple drivers?
A. Yes, but each driver must be registered seperately. Please also bare in mind that tracking a car takes a very big toll on the car and causes massive heat soak. Unless you have an uprated intercooler, you car is unlikely to last more than 3 runs in a row.

Q. Do spectators need to pay?
A. No

Q. Do I need roll bars?
A. No

Q. Do I need a racing, EC or CAMS license?
A. No, as I'm running this as an entirely private event, only proof of current drivers license essential

Q. Can we share helmets?
A. Gross and yes

Q. I can't make it on the day but paid in full?
A. Sorry, but you lost your money. If you can find a replacement driver within 24 hours, we can change your name to theirs ($50 transfer fee)

Q. Can 1 or more friends participate?
A. Yes, but please ask yourself if they would fit in well with the crew. ie; Douche level maximum of about a 6 out of 10.

Oooh so tempting!

Private day at EC would be awesome!!

Def need to figure out some sort of timing though, assuming it's done in groups, everyone should bring a stopwatch, buddy up with someone not in your group and time & record each other.

totally agree, timing will be essential as a group overall.

I might bring a vbox or gtech so i can properly log etc and analyse when i get home, but this is obviously not a solution to individual times as a group.
