I see they have 4 speed groups. Does the driver decide which group or is it based on the car?

It generally it's car based but if the driver feels more comfortable in another group you can change

"...bring your helmet, overalls, and glasses..."

What type of overalls are required?

I got my helmet from Chicane in Penrose. Overalls can be any overalls including the ones you would wear in an industrial or mechanical workshop (that's what they give you there). Glasses I'm not sure about.

As for the speed groups, it's very relaxed so it's not like you sign your name to a certain group and have to stick to that. When I was there it was just recommended but you could go on and off as you pleased really, just be considerate to others.

I'll look at coming to this one.

Overalls gotta be cotton if I remember right. Fire resistant. Get them from somewhere like Yakka?

You interested in sharing a garage? Gets pretty hot there. Will make sure i bring some fold out seats this time as lots of waiting around. Got 80km of track time in last time. You get 15mins every hour.

You interested in sharing a garage?not really but thanks for the offer

Gets pretty hot there. Forecast is for a high of 27

Will make sure i bring some fold out seats this time as lots of waiting around. Definitely a essential item plus lots of fluid, there was no catering last month

Got 80km of track time in last time. You get 15mins every hour.

See you there
