PRESIDENT’S DAY AT SANDOWN

Sunday 1 November

Share the passion.

President's Day will again be at Sandown this year, where the close proximity to the city will hopefully encourage many passengers to come and enjoy the excitement of riding in competition cars. A great opportunity to showcase the Club and the marque, and provide the ultimate passenger experience to our sponsors, friends and family.

A meeting point will be setup to link up passengers seeking a run with available drivers.

There will be a number of vendors set up behind the garages providing food and coffee during the day.

At the end of the day, to mark the end of the Competition year, please accept an invitation to join our President and the Committee for a glass of wine and canapés in pit lane.

Entrants: Please read the Supplementary Regulations carefully and make sure you understand the changes from a normal sprint day. The paramount objective is to share our passion for these vehicles in a safe environment. Only cars that have two seats, both with seat belts and can carry passengers will be accepted. All entrants require a minimum of a current CAMS L2S licence or equivalent.

Please Note: Safety is our primary concern on President’s Day when we have passengers travelling with a mix of drivers and cars with varying capabilities occupying the track at the one time.

Experience Requirements: Due to the paramount safety concern with passengers, entries will not be accepted from inexperienced drivers. A minimum requirement is to have competed in at least one PCV track competition event or a similar event with another club or in a race series during the last 2 years. Drivers who have run in at least one PCV Entree class track event in the last 2 years will also be accepted. It will be entirely at the discretion of the Competition Committee to make judgements on driver capability and accept entries. Any rejected entries will be notified immediately.

EACH ENTRANT MUST SHOW THE SCRUTINEER TWO APPROVED CRASH HELMETS FOR USE ON THE DAY. No helmets are available for hire from the Club but can be hired through Garner’s Hire Bikes in North Melbourne Ph 9326 8676.

Drivers please note the 75 dB(A) noise limit. Make sure your CAMS or AASA licence is current and you are a financial member of the Club. The gate to the pits will be open from 7:00am.

Run of Day: As in past years, the morning runs will be in allocated groups. After lunch if there are insufficient cars in the groups for efficient operation, the format will switch to an open pit arrangement to maximise the ability of the club to get passengers onto the track. In open pit sessions, cars will be released from pit lane onto the track in the order that they arrive at the marshalling point. Releasing onto the track will be done to maintain safe track density and vehicle separation.

Runs will finish at 4.30pm.

Entry Fee: $245 (Or $235 with own car numbers).

Garages: Garages can be booked for $60 when making your entry.

Entries that are withdrawn by the entrant before the Tuesday 27 October will forfeit half of the entry fee paid. No reimbursement of entry fee is to be made for entrants who withdraw after 27 October.

Please read the Supplementary Regulations here, as they contain specific items for President's Day.

The President’s Day Cycle Challenge

In order to give our members the opportunity to show the breadth of their talents, we will again be holding a bicycling challenge at the conclusion of our petrol powered activities.

This event is open and free to all PCV members plus family and friends who are attendees on the President’s Day.

At approximately 4:30pm the Sandown circuit will be opened for 3 cycling laps. There will be a competition for first over the finish line, but the event will also be open to those that wish to just leisurely experience the flow of the track.

The competitive element will be run strictly in line with the Supplementary Regulations, available by clicking here
