Our events are designed for drivers to get out on track and enjoy their street cars: You don't need special modifications or special skills. Just ensure that your car is in good mechanical order, and understand that it's OK if you are not Daniel Ricciardo.
The day will be a combination of Sprint and Regularity.
Sprint: Run as fast as you can.
Regularity: Run as close as possible to your nominated time. Exceeding your nominated time is heavily penalised.
NOTE: for Regularity - In vehicle or personal timing devices are not to be used. They are to be covered or switched off.
Information about the historic Lakeside Park, the venue of choice for many drivers, due to its undulations, fast straight and variety of turns. It’s a great venue to have your first go at a track, and if you are a novice you can start with a group of similar drivers. When you are ready, you promote yourself through the groups, so you get the cleanest drive. Fast or slow, one thing is for sure - you will have a great day.
For the uninitiated, this is NOT a race day. It’s an opportunity to improve your driving skills and stretch your car’s legs in a controlled, purpose built environment. It’s you versus the clock, driving within your comfort zone, as part of a small group of like-minded enthusiasts, travelling at a similar speed. It’s also a great place to catch up with old friends, or make a few new ones.
MX-5 Club track days are really well organised, affordable, always entertaining, and there are opportunities for non-members and other makes to participate. Visit the Motor Sports Page for more information about how to get on track with us, or contact the Compsec.
