None of this "special event membership" requirements to participate.
Make it as easy and as simple as possible for potential interested enthusiasts, who just want have a little bit of a gentle play, with other like minded owners , all together.
Sure have a group for the die-hard gung-ho racers amongst us, but run a KISS group, without club politechnickery.
Will i be there?
If I can still see, i will be.
As a die-hard gung-hoe slart.

Have a seperate group for the forum guys, the ones that may just like to have a bit of a play.
For one day.
To be asked "what lap times do you do?" can welll get a stuff you retort, and you lose someone.
Maybe a suggestion of someone who knows a bit, sitting alongside a driver, been done before, the QR run "Breakfast" sessions are sort of ok, but then a newbie is left to fend for themselves with a pack.
John Fraser's old setup was good, Aubrey will recall how these worked, maybe something similar?

So as per last full day event held in 2011 this event will start with a happy laps breakfast. Which is a buffet followed with half hour track time at highway speeds behind a pace car . You are allowed to take passengers with you on to the track and you only need a civil license for this event or learners permit. This part of the day is separate from the main day and will have its own cost.
The main part of the day will be skill and speed events and as such the cost of entry has gone up from the last event held in 2011. You can expect that increase to be around 30%. As per last event there will be no trophies or placings . But there will be timing of cars in a number of different events so you don't need a fast car to do well (but it helps) on the day. I am now in the process of putting together a program and entry forms including license forms as this is a AASA event. This should be done by mid January and down loadable from the ZCCQ web site and Queensland raceways web site.

Something about past events costing a fair bit to hire track, low number of entries, and not wanting to take a small loss on the day?
As you get cliser, and iron out what the day entails, please let us know!
I take it it isn't 15 cars at a time, out for 15-20 minutes doing sprint laps?
Can we set up a grid, as rolling start, and run a full on door to door five lapper??
Promise to go gentle!

I would say they are as competitive as the next person . You only have to look at Morgan Park results to see that . But some of us (me included) are a little gun shire of flag to flag .But that's not all of us.So as this is a ZCCQ organised event they may be open to what Jason sudjested and I am looking into its possibility.
But primarily the day will be geared to suit most people . You will go home having had your fill of track time.If it is rained out we should be offered an other day and I am sure any interstaters that would want to leave their car with ZCCQ or AUSZCAR members fly home and then fly back for the offered day would be welcomed to do so. At this point I can promise you this, that a full day at Lakeside run by TIME ATTACK is $300 per car. Entry fee for LAPZ will be well below that.

1. Are other cars eligible? Can I put in an entry and run the 5? and
2. For registered cars is a 3rd party insurance extension required?
On legal advice the mx5 club requires all registered cars to have an extension fir track days no matter where we are running. The HRCC(QLD) also requires this for their events as well.
Could be a busy weekend for me, I may also be out at Morgan Park on the Sunday instructing for a track day.
