No previous competition experience required. Expert guidance given to new drivers.

Handy Hints:

  1. Check you car’s oil, water, fuel, brake fluid, tyres, wheel nuts, brake pads, bonnet latch etc. Put extra in a bit of extra engine oil to allow for oil surge on the turns
  2. After each run open the bonnet to let out the heat and check everything again
  3. Make sure you have plenty of fuel in the tank. Fuel surge can starve your engine and cause damage
  4. HAVE FUN!

Safety Gear

We encourage you to buy the best protective gear you can. The requirements for Clubsport Basic can be found under Safety Critical Items HERE

As a minimum you need 100% cotton overalls with tight-fitting cuffs and collar, full-length cotton or woolen underwear and socks, leather shoes and a helmet that complies with MSNZ Schedule A. No flammable clothing such as lycra, nylon, microfibre, or similar for obvious reasons. We have some gear you can hire on the day if necessary.
