Driver Training Course

I am thinking of doing this course... has anyone else done anything like this before? I know the FPV owners would have done something similar...

High Performance Course


COURSE DATE Friday, 15th October 2004

AMOUNT $ 331.82

+ GST $ 33.18

TOTAL $ 365.00

VENUE MALLALA RACEWAY, SA

TIME:Compulsory vehicle inspection 08:30 to 09:00
Course starts at 9.00 am and finishes at 4.30pm.

YOUR VEHICLE will be subjected to a highly stressful day.
You need to check the following items before attending:

TYRES: Must be set for on-track conditions: at least 8 to 10 p.s.i. higher than the Manufacturer’s recommendations. Metal valve caps should be fitted.
Leave wheel trims which may fall off at home.

OIL AND FLUID LEVELS: Check your oil, brake fluid, and radiator levels.

BRAKES: You will need to check (or have checked for you) that your brake pads have sufficient material for a day on-track. It is preferable to consult your brake dealer about having new high performance pads fitted for the day. Changing brake fluid to a high performance variety is also a good idea.

LOOSE OBJECTS: Clear your car of all potentially dangerous loose objects.

CLOTHING: You will need to bring a helmet, and wear long-sleeved non-synthetic top and trousers, and thin-soled shoes. Driving gloves are preferred.

Note that at Calder only, you are required to wear a flameproof racing suit. These may be hired on the day for $50. At Calder, you may hire a helmet for $20 for the day.

NOISE : Please note noise level at Sandown must not exceed 75 dB(A) when measured 30 metre from track pavement.

LUNCH: Morning Tea and Lunch are provided.

SPECTATORS: No spectators are permitted.

No pets, no children, no onlookers are allowed for safety reasons.

POSTPONEMENT OR NON ATTENDANCE: If you are unable to attend, you are required to give a minimum of seven (7 ) days notice, or you will be charged the full fee. If you provide seven (7) days notice of your inability to attend you can transfer to another day; or alternatively you can nominate another person to attend the day on which you booked.

INDEMNITY: All participants are required to sign an indemnity form.
* Please Note: Course format may vary or be cancelled due to safety conditions at instructor’s discretion.

Re: Driver Training Course

Would love to do it but unfortunatly it seems you have to do the Drive to Survive course first which they dont seem to have one scheduled at Mallala Raceway this year.
