Lakeside - Saturday 16 February 2013

Post by Prime » Tue Nov 20, 2012 10:12 pm

Hi All,

I have arranged for a group (of 10 cars) at Lakeside Raceway for the PM session on Saturday 16 February 2013. The day is again being put on by Time Attack.

The price will be $160.00 for the afternoon ½ day session (or $150 if you are a Member of the Time Attack). These are discounted rates on the normal 2013 charges.

Membership of Time Attack costs $100 a year, and gives you lower rates, the ability to cancel on the day (i.e. say for bad weather) with only about third of the price not refunded, and the ability to do the passenger rounds. If you are interested, send Time Attack an email: http://www.timeattack.com.au/content/view/1/32/

Paul from Time Attack will also throw in a professional instructor for our group. The instructor could not be with us in November 2012, due to a last minute cancellation.

You will need an AASA licence (this was $55 for the year in 2012 or $25 for the day) – do not know if there has been any price rise for 2013). This can be purchased at the track. Also required is a helmet, long sleeve shirt, ankle length trousers and enclosed shoes.

Helmets are also available at the track to hire (free or at a very low cost), but they do not have a great amount, so do not be late.

Time Attack now makes use of electronic timing utilised by Lakeside and Queensland Raceway. What this means is that on the day, if you want your laps timed with printouts, there is amount a $20 cost for hiring a transponder. Alternatively, you can purchase the transponder outright for about $80.00 and use it for this and future Lakeside and QR events... it is your choice.

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

I was trying to get to Queensland Raceway earlier in the year, but the first weekend Time Attack event there is on Saturday 25 May 2013 for the Japanese Nationals.

There are Time Attack 'practice lap sessions' at QR during the weekday in late January 2013. I will likely go to this. I will just post up the details on the RX8 site when I decide to go, and tell people if they are interested to contact Time Attack directly (i.e. I will not build a group). A bit like I did in August 2012.

I am sure the members who went this year would love the opportunity to improve on their time!

People can secure a spot with payment.

6. RX82003
7. Cliffo
8. ...

Note: Due to a timetable change at Lakeside, the First Round of the Lakeside Time Attack Series is now on 16 February 2013 (it was previously 23 March 2013). Accordingly, if this group is to go ahead could I have people confirm 'interest and collect payment' by Friday 1 February 2013.

Later Note: See my post on the start of page 2.

I'm keen, but with a very long boozy US trip behind me (aka on my credit card) and the fact I just quit my job to take another in Brisbane at 50% of the pay...

... Maybe. Very maybe :P

Nocty, so are you living down in Brisbane now mate? Also, you will keep the car, won't you?

P.S. - Plenty of time to save / pay off debt for this track day.

Sitting in the parent's house at the moment, heading back up north next week to pack the house... Looking at Northside Brisbane so far... lots of criteria I want to try and meet.

Unrelated *cough* news, I hate real estate agents already...

Well, it is still some time away, so I will just call it a 'show of interest' list for now:

People can secure a spot with payment. I will formally call for payment from about mid Feb 2013. Although people can pay at any time, to secure a spot, whether they are on the 'interested' list or not.

Please note: Due to a timetable change at Lakeside, the First Round of the Lakeside Time Attack Series is now on for the PM session on Saturday 16 February 2013 (it was previously 23 March 2013).

Accordingly, if this group is to go ahead could I have people confirm 'interest and collect payment' by Friday 1 February 2013.

I will PM all existing members who showed interest the payment details (and also new members who show interest from this point).

Cheers, Nigel
