Hi guys, I thought that we might have some poeple here who'll be interested in attending some of the track days this year, and so I figured I'd post a calendar of all the local (ie. VIC) tracks days run by the various car clubs. There are mostly the clubs that I know, and hence know how they run the days, but at the same time I'm sure that I have not listed all the clubs, nor events so if anyone knows any others then please list them here.

ps. I'm more than likely going to the DECA day on the 25/2, and then the PI day on 11/3. That's about as far as my immediate plans go.

Man I would love to go to a track day, just how do I make it happen. Do I need special licensing or do I just rock up. Do I need anything else besides a helmet??

Ray... you definitely need your car to be there!!! :) j/king...

For most of the track days, you just need a basic cams license and you can get one by subscribing to Nissan and Datson club...

cheers,

richie

For the ones listed above you need:
- CAMS L2S license
- Car club membership
- Fire extinguisher mounted in the car (within reach)
- Helmet

That's about it. CAMS license can purchased for about $95 (for a year) just by filling in a form. Though, you do need to be a member of a car-club before you can get the CAMS license ... that is any car-club as you do not need to be a member of the car club running the event to participate.

Extinguisher has to be at least 0.9kg, and it can be bought from Bunnings for about $50. A lot of us have it mounted behind the passenger seat.

Once you've got the license, membership and extinguisher sorted then you can participate in any of the above mentioned events just by booking in a spot by filling in a form and paying the nominated cost. The cost is betweem $80 and $150 usualy depending on the club and the track. Also the entry forms are usualy released about a month before the event, and it's usualy best to get in early as most of these events have a cap on how many cars they accept.

ps. You can get onto a track without a CAMS license, car-club membership and extinguisher, but that would be either a 'fun day where there's be about 200 cars and where most of them don't know what they're doing. Or you do a track/performance course with one of the driving institutions. These are great, but will cost between $300 and $500 per day.
