    Default Wakefield Park Track Day - Friday 13th November 2015!!

    Well it's time for our last day of the year! I have next year's preliminary dates around somewhere... will post later.

    All the usual info, cost is $200 per car, anybody who's been will attest it's awesome value for the amount of track time you get. Even if it's a busy day, you still get a heap of laps, particularly if you time your sessions well. We run a limited number of cars so you pay per car and can cycle as many drivers through one car as you like, it's open track all day with a limit of 12 on circuit and a one in one out basis, so you can go out when you want. I have the usual 15 spots reserved for Toymodders but can usually find a few more if i need them.

    Accommodation has for the last several times been in town at the Alpine Heritage with the MWSCC guys, the pub has an awesome feed and reasonable beer selection. We usually stay Thursday and Friday nights but you're welcome to stay both, either one or drive down and back on the day. I recommend steak, beer and sleep after a long track day.

    Bring valid CAMS or road licence, helmet, neck/wrist/ankle length clothing and beverages if staying (accom is about $50/night depending on numbers). No official timing means cheaper insurance (and therefore track time) and passengers are allowed for 'driver training purposes', but feel free to organise your own timing gear.

    So, when you commit to coming, make sure to let me know, then when I see the coin ($200 + $50/night) i will add you to this...

    1. Schmitt - TA22

    Ok, next year's dates have been set as follows - note this is preliminary and we often get 1 or 2 moved on us to suit championships planning etc;

    1/. 1/04/16.
    2/. 3/06/16.
    3/. 12/08/16.
    4/. 2/12/16.

    All Fridays as usual. Chuck 'em in the calendar and plan ahead so you're not surprised when i throw the thread up 3 weeks out!

    Now, i will be missing this wakefield next month (along with a couple of other regulars), as we're going down to Phillip Island for the supersprints that weekend. Before anybody suggests Wakefield Friday then continue on down, don't worry that was the first thing we all thought too; but we're on track at PI both Saturday and Sunday so it leaves no time to travel 2 hours past Melbourne and be well rested bright and early Saturday.

    I've been MIA a few wakefields in the last couple of years so hopefully 2016 i'll be at all 4, plus a couple of SMSP as it's been too long since i've been there too.

    Sounds like the GT4 is getting a bit of use - good to hear.

    Schmitt, money received.

    Hey Garth I am out.
    Had the tail shaft decide it no longer wanted to be one piece at about 120km/h on the marques in the park cruise yesterday.
    Damage doesn't look to bad but not something I can fix by Friday.

    Mate, understand - saw the FB post. PM me some details, at this stage i should be right to sort the cost for you, worst case you'll have a credit for next time. Can definitely send the accommodation money back.

    Anyone else still a chance? Need to finalise this today or tomorrow at the latest; Roundy, where'd you end up?

    I've gotta replace my rear brake lines, so need to find them in my shed but i should be good.

    Is there any real point sending accommodation money?
