Time – 2.00pm for a 2.30pm to 4.00pm Session and you can stay on for the 4.00pm open practice at no extra cost

Cost is $80.00 per entrant which includes 1 other spectator in that car. This is payable by cash/cheque/Credit card to the club on the day. Special pricing is available for same car significant other grudge matches. Please ask.

We will meet you at the front gate and issue you with your entry form and two entry tickets per car upon receipt of payment.
Additional spectator cost is $20 per Adult, $18.00 per student with ID and kids 13 and under are free. This is payable on entry at the gate on the day. Spectators can park inside as there is always plenty of room at the back of the tower on test and tune days.

Willowbank Raceway trackside café will be open.

Your car does not need to be registered nor does it need to be a HSV or HDT. We have no maximum competitor numbers and we have had up to 35 in the past with every one getting more than enough track time. We could easily cater for up to 50 so invite your friends along to compete and settle those long standing arguments once and for all. We don’t mind a bit of any Brand verse HSV/HDT action. If your car runs faster than 10.99 seconds please see Willowbank raceway website for special additional requirements.

Clothing requirements
Minimum Long sleeve shirt, full length pants and closed footwear.
Australian Standard Helmet required

If you are competing you will be issued with 2 entry forms at the gate. You will then make your way to the staging lanes where you will complete the Willowbank Raceway form and hand to scrutineer. The second club form will be handed in when you are ready to nominate your target time up to a maximum of 3 test passes. They will check your helmet and issue you with a number and the number will be written on your windows with white boot polish. This washes off afterwards with no damage. At nominated times above the lanes will be open and you will be free to run for 1.5 hours. Time slips are printed for each run and are available at the base of the tower for pick up. The club is supplied all timing information the following week to allow calculation of fastest time. Your entry covers you to stay on and run after 4.00pm in the main test and tune event.

For 2016 we are going to run the dial your own time format for scoring. After a maximum of 3 test passes you will hand in your information sheet which will identify you and your race number and you will nominate your time. Points will be allocated for the closest 2 passes for the remainder of the meet to the nominated time and you will need to compete in both events to qualify for the end of year trophy. The trophies on offer will be First to Third Male and First to Third Female.

If you want to be in the point score you will need to make sure you hand a nominated time form in on the day.

For 2016 I intend to post scores up after each event so everyone knows how they are going and to attract a little more interest.

It is always a low stress great fun event. So please come out and have some fun and bring your mates with you. No need to advise your attendance in advance. Just make sure you are at the main gate by the nominated time on the day.
