Pukekohe track day 25th October

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm taking the M3 to a track day session at Pukekohe next Saturday 25th. It'll be my second time at Puke and the first outing for my track day tyres! .

I'd be very happy to see any bimmersport peeps there. They allow passengers (who bring a helmet) so if you're keen enough you can ride shotgun.

My mate will also be bringing along his 635csi to blow out cobwebs following 6 years kept up in a shipping container.

Should be a fun day!

James

It's just a Pukekohe track open day. They run them every few weekends. $110 and a helmet (I don't think they even require a racing suit) and the track is yours.

I guess I probably could've put it forward as a Bimmersport meet, but a) this part of the forum tends to be pretty quiet so I'm not sure how many are keen trackers, and b ) I'm pretty new and haven't organised anything before!

And c) it's only a week's notice.

James

Sounds good Suresh! It's gonna be a great summer.

I'm extra careful around Puke. I have little ego when it comes to this sort of thing, so have no problems with staying at a safe speed.

And no stopwatch!

Open Days at Puke can be very interesting, mainly due to the other drivers that turn up (granted it has been a while).

Puke's not for girls, that's for sure.

You mean like the guy who rocks up in a manual V8 VT commodore and thinks he'll blitz everyone on the back straight, pulls into someone elses path to do so, and THEN realises the standard ratios are all wrong and gets passed by a guy caning around in an 1800 Pulsar hatch??? :lol:

Man, that was funny ALL day! :lol:

Last time I was there was when a VT Commodore was under warranty though...

^^yeah that type of thing.

My first ever lap there (old circuit) on the back straight I had two V8s try to pass me going into the braking zone, one inside one outside. Only one of us made it round the hairpin, the others went into the sand in big circles.

Us girls can do a great job at Puke thanks. Perhaps you mean that Puke isn't for the light hearted. It's great fun though! Almost one of my favourite tracks.
