A bit more advanced notice this time.

Have you ever wanted to drive your car to it's or your limits?
Want to know what the actual top speed of your car is as opposed to what the speedo says?
Felt the need to drive hard than the road rules allow?

Well, here's the opportunity you've been waiting for.

Hutt Valley Motorsport Club and Photoworks.co.nz are running a basic trackday at the Taupo track on Monday June 2nd - Queens Birthday Monday.

All you need are:
  • 100% cotton (or full race) overalls.
  • MSNZ approved Helmet
  • 0.9kg extinguisher with metal bracket bolted in the front seat area.
  • Civil drivers licence
  • WOF level car (or MSNZ logbook)
  • $135
  • Enthusiasm for a fun day of driving at your own pace
Regulations (info) for the event are here.
Entry form is here and can be filled out online and emailed to trackday@photoworks.co.nz
Payment details are in the Regs (1st link).
You can also sign up on the photoworks website http://photoworks.co.nz/trackday
You'll still have to fill out the entry form though.

You don't have to be a member of a car club and you don't need a race licence.
These days are a lot of fun and you get plenty of tracktime.
We will be running Track 2 at Taupo which is the new section.

For those not keen on drilling holes in the floor for an extinguisher, you can make a bracket that goes between the front seat mounting bolts and bolt the extinguisher bracket to that.  Ask me if you want the exact specs for that.

Any questions, pm me on here, or ask in the thread.

Cheers
Geoff

Unfortunately we cannot run bikes on the track with cars.

JDNZ: yep, realise that... far to dangerous... the bikes would whip ya :P

I have no doubt that the bikes would whip the cars.  :P  The nature of bikes vs cars really.

No can do sorry.  Running under a MotorSport NZ permit which won't allow bikes.

Best bet would be to talk to the track management and see if they know of bike clubs or events that are happening on the track and get contact details for them.
Plus if you are looking at organising a trackday, the track management is happy to let you know what you need to do.

no worries, sorry to kinda hijack your thread... still got a place for a aging standard automatic skyline :)

I think I'll wait for summer to organise a bike day.

No worries.

Yep, still places available.
Nothing wrong with aging cars.  Mine turns 19 this year.  Tongue out
Well, bits of the car turn 19.  Not totally sure which bits though.
