South Island members this is for you! Many weren't able to attend the national meet in Taupo, so why not have a kind of mini-national event in Invercargill to fit in with the event which is already happening. Its going to be a pretty sweet weekend and I think you should make the effort to travel down for it.

Saturday 14th March - We will be holding a Track Day at Teretonga, I am looking to hold a 1/4 Mile Drag Event, and in the evening a Motorkhana. Cost is $60 for the track day and that should include the 1/4 mile I hope, and $20 for the motorkhana. 

The track day would include the track being open for laps for about 3 hours (about 12-minute sessions of up to 8 cars), and a time attack (1 warm up lap, 1 timed flying lap, 1 cool down lap).

The 1/4 mile would be at least 4 timed runs.

The motorkhana is 3 courses (3 runs at each), two are on seal, one on grass.



Sunday 15th March - Our Southland Sports Car Club round of the southern interclub autocross championship, it will be a sealed autocross. Quite a cool event and always has a good turnout. $30 entry for the autocross.

The autocross will have 4 timed runs, best time counts. We do it on the infield roads, sections of the pits and track. It is all sealed.

What do people think, we could do a meal or something on the saturday night. The same safety equipment as taupo, just helmet and overalls required and preferably a fire extinguisher installed in accordance with MSNZ regs.

Hey Cameron.

Great idea to do something. Would there be a possibility to do any proper laps of the track?

Ive done this trip a fair few times, its about 7 hours including a stop, and normally a tank of gas, although the GTIR used a bit more.

Id love to come up for a track day, the last time I drove Ruapuna was in a diesel peugeot, so I wanna put those memories to rest. Early march wouldn't work for me unfortunately as that is when the clubsport national champs are on and Im dragging the car up to Auckland and back.

No details yet, it's yet to be finalised but I doubt that its going to go anywhere else.
