President's Day at Sandown
Sunday 17th November 2019
About the event
President's Day is a great opportunity to showcase the Club and the marque, and provide the ultimate passenger experience to our sponsors, friends and family.
Key points to note:
- President's Day is not a timed Competition Day;
- It is very important that entrants understand and enter the spirit of the day.
- There will be no cars on track without a passenger on the day.
Share the passion
President's Day will be at Sandown again this year, where proximity to the city will hopefully encourage many passengers to come and enjoy the excitement of riding in competition cars.
A meeting point will be setup to link up passengers seeking a run with available drivers. Please note that past years have seen lengthy queues form for passenger rides.
This year we will be inviting passengers to donate to the “President’s Gold Laps”. The aim of this initiative is to raise funds for the “Challenge Kids with Cancer” organisation which PCV supported at Calder in 1999. Beginning in 1983, The Challenge Family Centre is a registered not-for-profit organisation that provides daily support for children & families living with cancer. Through their programs & services, Challenge aims to make life easier as they deal with fighting their illness. For details of the charity, go to www.challenge.org.au or for information about the day, contact club member Garry Voges, 0408 382 069
Food and coffee will be available from our usual vendor on 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 members of the Competition, Social and General Committees for a glass of wine and nibbles in pit lane. This will take place only after track closure – no alcohol is otherwise permitted under any circumstances.
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 our vehicles in a safe environment. Porsche cars are preferred, as are cars that have competed in events with Porsche Club Victoria during the year. 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 and will need to satisfy the criteria set out below.
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 one time.
Important - Experience Requirements
Entrants must have competed in at least 5 events at Sandown, and in at least 10 events with Porsche Club Victoria. The aim is to have entrants who have knowledge and experience of Sandown to help us deliver a safe event. Note: if you don't exactly meet these requirements but feel you can demonstrate appropriate skill and experience, contact the Mark, Competition Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
Every entrant must show the scrutineers two (2) approved crash helmets for use on the day. No helmets are available for hire from the Club.
Drivers please note the 75 dB(A) noise limit. Make sure your CAMS licence is current and that you are a financial member of the Club. The gates will open at 7:00am.
Important – passenger requirements
Passengers must be at least 12 years of age
Run of Day
As in past years, the morning runs will be in allocated groups. After lunch if there are insufficient cars in groups for efficient operation, subject to the decision of the Clerk of Course, the format may switch to 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. Details will be confirmed on the day.
Runs will finish at 4.30pm.
Entry Fee: $260 (Or $240 with own car numbers).
Garages: Garages can be booked for $75 when making your entry.
