Some more info:
A good chance to perfect your skills such as when and how to clutch kick and how use your handbrake. The only requirement is that your car RWD, it can be a dead stock auto if you want. It's about learning how to drive with what you have and figuring out what that next mod should be.
The instructors will be going in the car with you to advise what needs to be done and a cage is not required given the low speed of the classes.
Pit crew is limited to 2 per driver ONLY.
We suggest you bring another set of tyres if you are planning to drive up. If you are towing up then the one pair may last you all day, but it is advisable to bring an extra pair mounted on wheels if possible.
A roll cage is NOT a requirement for this event, although it is strongly advised.
Entries close at 6pm on the Wednesday prior to the event unless sold out earlier.
