[VIC] Winton Fun Day Sat Feb 27th

Crossposted on e90post:

The next Winton fun day is coming up on Saturday Feb 27th:
(Can see the event on their calendar but the fun day page hasn't been updated yet)
http://www.wintonraceway.com.au/drive/fun-days

The day only costs $50 for driver or passenger and is organized in 30 minute sessions alternating between driver and driver+passenger sessions. Been to a couple of these, good fun, especially if you go with your friends and make a day of it.

Notes:
- You need a helmet, get one with the AS1698 sticker. I bought a motorbike helmet as they are much cheaper than motorsport helmets.
- You need long sleeve shirt, pants(not shorts) and enclosed footwear. No flammable clothing (cotton preferred)
- No need for cams license
- No need for fire extinguisher
- If you have an N54 engine, make sure all the maintenance is up to date, weak stuff WILL break at the track! If in doubt, try a more conservative map to avoid overheating.

Make sure you fill up on petrol on the Hume at one of the big petrol stations, a lot of the rural stations don't carry 98 or E85. I would probably skip E85 mixing as it is a long drive and you don't really need more power on a tight track like Winton.

Note your insurance won't cover you on these days but as long as you don't drive like a dickhead you should be fine. Just overtake on the straights when it is safe, and keep a safe distance when following someone who doesn't know what they're doing. If its your first time, just concentrate on learning the track and taking the ideal racing line, don't be a hero and go all out.

We can meet up north of Melbourne and drive up to Winton together. It is around a 2.5 hour drive from Melbourne on the Hume. It is a good idea to go early if you want to score a good parking spot in the covered areas and set up a garage.

Meet at Coles Express Dalton Road Thomastown at 5:45AM for a strict 6AM start. If you are late, just meet up at Winton

One of the guys did that last time I went. Stayed in some motel in Benalla I think.

I'll stick to driving up in the morning, I've done it the last two times and it wasn't bad at all.
