2015 Track Days

THIS SECTION WILL BE UPDATED IN EARLY 2015

THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IS A BROAD OVERVIEW  OF FUTURE EVENTS. 

FOR EXACT DETAILS OF EACH EVENT, PLEASE SCRUTINISE THE RELEVANT RULES AND REGULATIONS PROVIDED BY THE ORGANISER OF EACH EVENT.  

 Following the great response we had last year from the Club’s track days, we have again been able to organise what we hope will be another great Street Sprint / Autotest Series.

These Series are in response to the ongoing need for Members to get out on the track and enjoy their vehicles in a controlled environment. To make sure Club Members have a variety of events, this year 2 Street Sprint Track Days will be held at Lakeside Raceway, 2 Autotest Days will be held at the Lakeside Driver Training Circuit and a Test and Try Hill Climb Day will be held at the MG Car Club’s Mt.Cotton Circuit .

Please note that the Street Sprint Series and the Autotest Series are NOT A RACE SERIES, if you are interested in racing your clubman or other special interest vehicle, there is a full race series being organised by Queensland Raceway at both Ipswich and Lakeside Circuits. Further details can be found on https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&sqi=2&ved=0CC4QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fqldraceways.com.au%2F&ei=wmWeVM2NEIri8AWThIKIBg&usg=AFQjCNHAKGTXa5Gf-nHDG5fGsYs-BnWiiw&bvm=bv.82001339,d.dGc

 If you are not keen on going flat out, please don’t be put off by these events, you are free to run around at your own pace and as everyone on track will be mostly club members, they will be keeping an eye out for you. At the end of the day this is designed to be a friendly club event.
