Events take place at Barbagello Raceway
These are the dates which are currently confirmed for 2011. (Note: all dates are a Thursday.)
Wondering what to expect on these dates at our events?? Well keep reading...
To start the night off we advise that everyone makes there best effort to arrive at Barbagello Raceway between 1700-1730 (Please be aware that there can be heavy traffic out of the city around 4:30). When you get to the raceway head straight though down to the open garages on the other side of the grassed area and park up in one of the bays. At this point it is advised to prepare your car for scrutineering, this could include removing loose items and or changing tyres.
When this is done you may start lining up in the scruitineering bay, look for the sign it was on your right as you drove past the grass.
By 1800 we aim to start the drivers briefing which will run for ~15mins.
Once this has taken place it will be time to start lining up in the pit lane, if you haven't been around the raceway before or you have entered our events before and wanting more instructing you are to line up in the left lane. The right lane is for those who have been to a number of our events before and are running the quicker times. Don't panic you can move over to the right lane if the instructor deem you to be capable.
Next comes getting out on the track, we are licensed to run up to 10 cars on the track at any one time however we usually only run 6. This allows you to get more space when your out there. You will be sent to the exit of pit lane where you'll watch for the lights to signal you to depart. The groups of 6 are made up of cars of similar lap times and also driver ability. Just remember though, if you have someone on your tail through the technical section of the track but your pulling away from them on the straight you are actually the slower car. It is your duty to easy up on the straight and let them pass, you'll find they will pull away from you and you anyway. When you have completed your 5 laps you'll see the checkered flag, this is your chance to cool your brakes down. Do your best to keep moving around the track with using your brakes as little as possible. Then next time around come back into the pits and line up.
With our starting time on the track being ~1830 we finish at 2230, if your keen to get laps in make the effort to stick around to the end. As for entry numbers, our cut off is 50 cars with most events seeing 30+ entries.
