Driver Training Day at Oran Park

Ok as some people may already know by reading the Diary or *gasp* attending monthly club meetings, we are trying to organise a driver education day at Oran Park raceway.

These are the pertinent details I have gathered from Brad Howes, our esteemed club member who is facillitating the event.

Date: Saturday 26th May. (to be re-confirmed)
Time: 8:30am (until 4:30pm)
Venue: Oran Park Raceway
Cost: $250 (may be less if more than 20 people enter)

This event is for the purposes of advanced driver training (ie not reverse parking or three point turns). Qualified instructors will be present. A catered lunch is also included in the admission price.

Payment needs to be made by cheque/money order or cash. It can me mailed to the address below. Payment in person can probably be arranged by contacting Brad. He should be appearing this Sunday at the Dyno Day. Confirmation of attendance and payment need to be done soon for the day to go ahead. If we can't get a reasonable number of entries by about a month out from the date, Brad will need to cancel the booking with the racetrack or be out big $$.

There will be opportunity for people to discuss the day up to about the Eastern Creek Supercar races but that's about it.

The Australian Academy of Motorsport
PO Box 747
Castle Hill NSW 1765


Things prospective entrants will need to have/prepare for:

AS approved helmet, non-flammable long sleeve clothing and closed shoes.

Car in safe working order. That primarily means brakes, steering and suspension. If you don't know when your fluid was last changed it would be wise to do so with some good quality DOT4 or better stuff. If you need to change pads don't leave it to the last minute as Brad advises 500k of driving to properyly bed them in.

Hey guys

What is happening with this event. At the meeting on Tuesday, Brad had only received one form and money!

We've had to open it up to friends of members etc to attempt to get enough numbers to make it worth doing.

Come on guys - let get moving and support this event. There is little point the club organising activities like this if we can't get enough people to participate.

So how about it.................

We still have only about 5 people who have paid their money to Brad for the Oran Park training day.

A while back there were some discussions on this list relating to the fact that the club has been talking about organising events like this for a while, but never doing anything about it. Well now that we have organised this day we have been overwhelmed by the lack of response or interest.

Come on guys, lets get our act together and support this event...........
