2012 Track Days

 
Following the great response we had last year from the Clubman Sprint Series at Lakeside we have again been able to organise what we hope will be another great sprint series / track days.
 
This series is in response to the ongoing need for members to get out on the track and enjoy their vehicles in controlled environment. To make sure club members have a variety of events, this year 3 track days will be held at lakeside and 1 at Queensland Raceway, Ipswich. In adition to this we are organising for a Autotest / Motorkhana style event
 
Please note this is a sprint series / track day and not a race series, if you are interested in racing your clubman there is a full race series being organised by QCSR, further details can be found on the QCSR website.

Timing Systems

Queensland Raceways (Lakeside and QR) have a new timing system in place. No longer do the window strips or dorians work at either of the tracks. It is all managed by a new form of timing device manufactured by Westhold Corp. 

The major benefit of the system is the tags do not require any maintenance. They are a fit and leave alone type tag. Each tag has a life span of about 7-9 years, dependent on the frequency of use.

Each tag costs $80 to keep. In the event you do not wish to keep one we will refund you $60 on the return of the timing tag (so essentially a $20 hire fee). 

In addition to the timing tags we have an in car timing display is available for an additional charge. This links with the timing system via your timing tag number to display your times to you in your car while on track, within 20m of passing the start/finish line.

Timing devices are available for hire / purchase on the day of the event from the Queensland Raceway office.

General Info 
If you are not keen on going flat out, please don’t be put off by this format, you are free to run around at your own pace and as everyone on track with you will be club members everyone will keep an eye out for you. At the end of the day this is designed to be a friendly club event.
 
As this is also part of the Street Sprint Series your lap times will still count towards the overall point scoring and results, however as an added incentive there will be trophies at the end of the year for the 2012 Clubman Sprint Series.
 
If you would like to participate in any of these events please fill out the entry form and forward to email competition@clubmansqld.org or mail to PO Box 633, Hamilton Central, QLD, 4007.
