Never been on track before but would love to. What are the requirements in the way of car specs and licensing?

What about helmets fire extinguisher etc.

What type of car can I bring?
You can bring any type of car. All cars must be either road-legal (with current WOF ) or a race car capable of passing motorsport scrutineering.
We get a real mix at most days - anything from MX5's to Ferrari's
Please note: All soft top cars MUST have adequate roll protection

We have a group called Playday Prestige for exotic & expensive cars limited to 10 -12 cars. This qualifies for trackday cover if you are insured with Prestigio.

What equipment do I need to bring if I am going out on the track ? 

  • 100% Cotton or fire proof overalls (please ensure they are oil/grease & paint free)
  • A crash helmet in good condition
  • Shoes (not sandals or jandals)
  • Drivers license

We also recommend cotton shirt, underclothes and socks (for fire safety).

I’ll be there in mine, having never done a track day and spending most of the time driving like a nana I doubt i’ll be setting any rapid times so you’ve got nothing to worry about.

Nah the guy with the fast car and big mouth that can't drive is usually the only one that gets laughed off the track.

 

learn what your daily can do and its limits. If your not fast just indicate and move over a little so they can pass.

you won't have any more fun in a fast car than a slow one.

 

tui brewery is really good.

manifield is pretty simple and wide so great first track.

no way it can't be fun.

 

overalls from places like alsco are cheap as are long cotton or woolen socks. Helmet is the biggest cost.

just do it!

You may want to check up on this, as the rules for clothing is changing in April for Motorsport/track events. Not sure if it effects something like this event but it may well do.

Depends on what this is classed as a basic or advanced club sport event.

 

leather shoes may be required either way and overalls/socks must have the 100% cotton label attached.

never seen socks with labels attached so guess nomex socks at $40-55 a pair. But they last years so no big deal, just don't use them as street wear with jandals.

Close fitting cuffs is the only thing that ever causes issues on the day.

I'm sure play day will have this all cleared up, its 2 months until the change over.

Only $20 for 12 months subscription? Count me in! However, is PayPal the only payment option? I haven't used PayPal since 2005 and I keep getting "Sorry, we can't add this card. Please try adding a different card to your account" when I try to update my PayPal account, so frankly I'm giving up on PayPal. I can do bank transfer instead if that works.

 

Anyway, as someone who registered on the forums 3 years ago (daaamn), attended one meet-up in Auckland, then moved to Wellington and completely fell off the face of the earth I'd love to get more involved with the Club, especially since I bought a new car recently. This mega meet sounds like a pretty sweet way of getting back into the "car club" scene as I was a long time member and one of the admins of SNZ back in the day, and miss hanging out with fellow petrolheads!

 

I'll try and get a 12 month subscription to begin with, then see whether or not it is feasible to attend the actual meet later, so if anyone can help me get past the PayPal issue for a subscription, that would be awesome.

You shouldn't need to log into PayPal to pay.

 

However yes you can pay directly to our account. Just makes book keeping a little more interesting.

I'm also pretty sure that a track day under plays at is not a MSNZ event. There for no need to follow the official rule book and these changes wont effect us. The main reason we use them is so we don't need public liability or event insurance.

 

I will clarify this with plays day.

Yeah I have previously managed to use PayPal as a guest, but either I am blind this time around, or the option wasn't there haha. I have deposited $20 into the account. I used 12mth-sub and my forum username as the reference, so hopefully it helps rather than hinders the book keeping :P

 

Thanks!

      Hi all. So I've just seen on Facebook about a thing called The Gumboot rally it's on the weekend of the 7th of April. Goes from Hamilton somewhere down to New Plymouth then across to Taupo and also includes The Forgotten Highway which is an awesome road to drive, as I have done it a few times now. If you are interested go have a look on Facebook should be a fun weekend I reckon.
       
      Stay safe on the roads over this time there are some CRAZY people out there who only think about themselves!!
