    CARS Time Attack

    Hey guys, it's been a while since we did something as a club and to be quite honest we have only been doing drive arounds.



    On the 27th of March (Easter Weekend) CARS is hosting a Time Attack event at Wallerfield, I attended their first one last year and it was really nice!

    For your pass you are allowed one run from a standing start around the raceway and there are cones forcing you into the proper driving line, chicanes to slow you down on the straight way before the corner, also since it's just a few cones showing you a driving line it's a LOT less confusing than the traditional AutoCross. Plus it's tarmac, so a lot less tire wear when compared to competing at ARC. After your one lap you are allowed another cool down lap which does not count for your time, from this lap you exit the track.

    The requirements are helmet, long pants and shoes- you are allowed one passenger once they meet the aforementioned requirements.
    The price hasn't been confirmed yet but I reckon it's gonna be about $500 per entry for non-members, spectator/entry fee is $20 and I believe you can pay for 2 non competition runs called "Fun Runs" but I'm not sure the cost of that yet.

    It's a really nice event to ease into motorsport or even if you just want bragging rights that you drove on the Racetrack...pfft.

    For those of you interested in spectating I suppose we can BBQ and stuff.

    I'll add in more information as I get, or you can ask questions that I'll forward to the relevant people.

    UPDATE
    Cars will undergo scrutineering on the morning of the event by officials, here's some stuff they look at:
    -Seat belt and seat secured
    -Battery must be secured
    -No oil leaks
    -Brake fluid topped up
    -No loose objects in car...(soooo Aniel can't bring his wife)
    -No worn tires
    -ALL wheel nuts on each wheel!

    Also they rent helmets for those of you who don't have, it used to be $50 for the day, not sure how it changed.

    Cool, have never done any racing, unless WOT to the grocery and back counts. Are there any specifics in terms of vehicle requirements?
