Second 2012 Track Day at Lakeside - Saturday 3 November 2012

Post by Prime » Sat Jul 14, 2012 11:05 am

Hi All,

I have arranged a slot (for 10 cars) at Lakeside on Saturday 3 November 2012. The day is being put on by Time Attack.

The price will be $150.00 for the morning ½ day session. Paul from Time Attack has also generously agreed to throw in a professional instructor for our group for ‘free’. This was a great and informative feature of the earlier track day this year.

When we were at Lakeside in March 2012 we got in about 5 or so sessions with about 6 laps per session for the ½ day...so it was a generous amount of track time and a well run event.

You will need an AASA licence (this was $55 for the year or $25 for the day earlier this year – do not know if there has been any price rise) which can be acquired at the track. Also required is a helmet, long sleeve shirt, ankle length trousers and enclosed shoes.

It would be great to make up the group entirely or largely of RX8s. If we cannot fill it entirely with 8s, then we can bring in a few of our mates. Time Attack will also allocate us some other cars if we ever did not find 10 drivers.

So who is in? :)

First Group / List:

1. Prime (Nigel) - Paid :thumbright:
2. skc - Paid :thumbright:
3. Cliffo - Paid :thumbright:
4. 70nyd - Paid :thumbright:
5. Kustom (Stef) - Paid :thumbright:
6. mdr - Paid :thumbright:
7. X RX8 X - Paid :thumbright:
8. rx82003 - Paid :thumbright:
9. Bruce (Prime's mate) - Paid :thumbright:
10. Dean (Noddi_76's mate) - Paid :thumbright:

-------------------------------------------------------------
Track group now full!

Sounds good guys.

The reason why the date is so far out is that there are limited weekend options for Time Attack in the second half of 2012. Plus I know skc and bruce87 have present engine matters to attend to, so I wanted to give them some time.

But there is also a Time Attack event on Sunday 16 September 2012 at Lakeside. Would this be a better option for people? And Bruce87 and skc, is that too soon for you guys?

The saturday event works for me better than the Sunday one, but I can be flexible if I have to be.

Thanks guys, Saturday 3 November 2012 it is then. :D

Also gives more time to try and attract RX8s, before the invite is extended to friends with other cars.
