Cost is $50.00 per entrant at gate. Passengers $20 entry and kids 13 and under are free. Passenger runs in car $20 extra payable at scrutineering and must be over 18 and meet dress requirements and sign indemnity.

We no longer book our own session so we will be racing with the general public but we should still be able to run our club mates should we want to. Just make your way inside and if you wish to take part in club scoring you will just need to find the appropriate club official and they will issue you with your entry form to nominate your time.

Spectators can park inside as there is always plenty of room at the back of the tower.

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.

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 an entry form 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. 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 4.30pm the lanes will be open and you will be free to run until event end. We will run our competition for points till 6.00pm. Once you have your club timing nomination form and have run down the track a few times you are ready to nominate your target time. Time slips are printed for each run and are available at the base of the tower for pick up. Please collect your time slips and if you want to be in the club scoring hand them in at 6.00pm to the appropriate club official.

For 2018 we are going to run the dial your own time format for scoring. After your 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.

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 4.00pm on the day.
