SANDOWN WINTER SUPERSPRINT
Saturday 28th July 2018
Welcome back to the popular and easy to get to Sandown Raceway for our first Sprint at this venue this year. Note that this event is – very unusually for Porsche Club of Victoria – being run on a SATURDAY.
This is our first meeting at Sandown since the announcement that the circuit will remain in operation until at least 2025.
Evidence of prior track experience or satisfactory completion of a high-performance driver training course is a Club requirement for the timed competition classes.
All competitors will require a Dorian transponder to be fitted to their cars for official times to be recorded. Please make sure they are properly fitted and charged. Dorians can be hired for the day, but must be booked at time of entry. New Dorian units can be purchased from Carly via email@example.com .
Entrée Class - Fully Booked
Entrants in the entrée class get separate sessions of untimed practice track experience. Mentors will be provided from experienced club members. Prior advanced driver training is preferred, fire extinguishers and Dorians are not required. You will need a CAMS Level 2S Licence, an approved helmet, suitable clothing (see the Supplementary Regulations) and a roadworthy vehicle. Your vehicle will have a tow hook in the tool kit, it should be fitted – either front or rear. Entrée class is the perfect introduction to track days for new members. Please note Entrée Class numbers are strictly limited.
The Maximum Noise must not exceed 75db(A) as measured by 30-Metre drive by test on equipment provided by circuit. This is a requirement of the venue.
Garages can be booked at $88 ($80 plus GST) each on entry, but numbers are limited.
Our lunch vendor will be providing coffee and breakfast rolls from around 8:00AM. Pizzas and other food will be available for lunch from approximately 11:30AM to 2:00PM.
Passenger laps at 80% of competition pace may be run during the Lunch Break subject to the absolute discretion of the Officials on the day.
Passenger laps are subject to passengers signing disclaimers and confirming no limiting medical conditions. Volunteer marshals will have preference for these laps with others only being allowed after all the marshals have had an opportunity.
Possible open pit afternoon session
If participants’ numbers drop off by mid-afternoon, Officials may consider the option of having an open pit from around 3:30pm. This open pit session may be declared either timed or untimed. A final decision on exercising this option will be made by the Clerk of Course on the day.
