ONLY 20 DRIVERS get in and pay early to secure your spot

To all those who want to drive in the dirt this day is for you. The club has hired the Dirt circuit at IWMAC for a full day of fun. This event has been run previously so some of you have been to the event before. For those of you that haven't it is a great day to see if you are interested in driving on the dirt whilst not being an all competitive day.

There will be a Driver’s Disclaimer you must agree to and sign to participate.

The drivers & passengers must attend the drivers briefing, sign in and agree to the rules. Both drivers and passengers will be given a wrist band that will be supplied once all the above has been undertaken.

Gates will open at 7.30am with the track opening at 9am. A barbeque lunch and drinks (bottled water) are included for all attendees.
This is a private event which will result in a lot of fun track time for all involved with the focus on enjoyment.

Proceedings of the day-

* 07:30 - Arrive and set up camp. Please feel free to bring seats and marquees
* 07:45 - Drivers Briefing
* 08:45 – Car checks and sighting laps.
* 09:00 - 12:00 - Runs

* 12:30 - 15:30 - Runs

The RULES-

* No door to door racing.

* No official timing.

* No more than 3 cars on the track at one time. Depending on how the day is going and driver attitude, we may allow more on the track as the day progresses.

* Laps will be starting from a standing start on the starting pad you will be waved on to the track where you will complete 1 standing lap and 2 flying laps (this may be changed throughout the day depending on the general feeling - 3 laps is a good place to start as cars don't get too hot).

* When you are shown the chequered flag, your run has ended. This could be the end of your run, it could be a problem with your car or it could be a problem on the track. If you think you were shown the flag or are even not sure it was meant for you, GET OFF THE TRACK!!! THERE WILL BE ZERO TOLERANCE ON THIS, AND A SINGLE BREACH YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.

* DANGEROUS DRIVING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.

* There is no need to rush at the start of the day - I can guarantee that there will be times when there is only one car on the track (and sometimes none) so you will get
plenty of lap time.

2016 Gatton Street Sprints

 None    Motorsport

Gatton Street Sprints is the first sprint event of the calendar every year, and it is a great way to start your motorsport year off.

The weekend starts on Friday afternoon with check in and scrutineering, and racing starts Saturday and runs all the way through to Sunday afternoon.

Throughout the event there is not only sprint racing, but drift demos, and Saturday night sees one of the biggest burn out competitions in south east Queensland!

If you are worried about what the littlies will do; don’t! This year, the Downs Motorsport Club is pulling out all stops with a full food court and entertainment precinct which will have all the stalls required to keep your little rug rat busy.

The Club always has a solid number of entries, and 2016 will be no different.

If you are keen head over and put your entry in online. But if you are not a racer, come and have a look.
