Yes Matt , you can enter the Mazda .
As far as the extension goes .That is a cams requirement(QLD reg cars only if I remember) for when you leave the main road and cross on to private property before entering the pit area. It is a sound practise but not required for this event. Having said that if you feel you need to get one I would.

The Quinn Boy's : went up against them in 2004 in Queensland Raceway Saturday sprint series . Tony wiped the floor with me then ,hate to think what he would do now.
Looks like we have some sponsor support from LIQUI MOLY,MEGUARIES,MOTOR ACTIVE and others . But I am not sure what's on offer . It may be all for the 2015 Easter event ,but they will be flying flags on the day . So our engines may run well and the cars will look great.

Any mention whether it will still be a Lakeside Sprints day?

So Lapz was never going to happen?
Prac day for Top Gear racing  next day would not be able to fit the events proposed.

I'm racing at the two QR and one Lakeside meetings later in year, Hysterics/TranzAms/Clubmans Gp N and Gp S&T,
No need for CAMS licence!

LapZ was going to happen, the track was booked and all arrangements were in place. QR has changed it's pricing and conditions since the last LapZ which does not help any club trying to run such an event, the financial risk can be quite severe.

Had a total of about 20 entries and they needed 60 to be viable.

Join the queue!
You're fourth on the list!
As usual with QR/Lakeside events, the vast majority enter within the final two weeks, ie not keen to enter months in advance,
A small pre-commitment payment, as has been done with other events elsewhere may work?
The 20 entries , assuming, would have been the usual gaggle of Morgan Parkers, the rest would have been the Maybe's and the Last Minuters.

What is QR now charging to hire Lakeside, last i heard, $15.000 a day. Divide that among 60, it gets very pricey per entrant.
Better to tack onto a pre planned Sprints day, and buy a "grid" or two, ie 15-30 cars, much less financial risk. Suggested before, but no intersts, oh well.

Are HANS going to be required by all Sprints entrants at MP for a National event in 2015?
Whats that gonna do for entry numbers!
Be a real shame if red tape and rules gets in the way.

There is nothing stopping an informal get together on a particular day at Lakeside, I've been quiet because the Z is out of action and will be for a while. Another LapZ like we have enjoyed in the past is pretty well stuffed due to QR having made such an event too difficult for the club on several levels. And it is not only us, other clubs have the same problems eg BMW flat out filling a much cheaper weekday sprint.

It's a pity that this forum is not used more to organise an informal get together or two at Lakeside  :(

The mx5 club has no problems making money on their events.

6 track days a year at both lakeside and qr. Qr days generally half day and lakeside at least half are full day. They get 45 to 60 cars at each day and a minimum of 5 runs in a half day event and at least 10 runs on a full day lakeside event. Cost is $120 for members and the club a good profit over the year.

They run 4 groups from the quick street cars and race cars, sub 64's at lakeside. Quickest cars are in the 58's and the odd rocket in the 55's if one of the 2b rocket ships come out for a test session. The fourth group is for first timers and cars doing generally 70seconds and up at Lakeside.

The group's work well and the cars sort themselves out pretty quick so no-one is held up, unless you want to have a play.

The days are held on a monday which doesn't seem to worry people as the dates are known well in advance so a day off work can be organised.
