The day features two levels of activity:

First time around a race track

1. Mornings

  • In the morning you can drive your car around the circuit at road speeds
  • There is no passing allowed on corners although you can pass other cars on the straights
  • You can opt to have an experienced track driver with you to give you tips on how to handle the track at speed


2. Afternoons

  • If you are feeling a little more confident after the morning's run you can drive a little faster in the afternoon
  • The runs are non-competitive
  • You will need a helmet
  • Roll cages not required

Tucked away in Carterton is a private collection of classic cars, mainly of American origin but some British. Owned by the local Dudson family this collection is not open to the public. I have arranged for a club visit on the 31st January, starting at 11.00. Admission is by gold coin donation.
More details nearer the day but probably meet at Aston Norwood cafe for coffee and depart for Carterton at 10.15.
