Wakefield Park Raceway Track Day for Lotus Sports Car Owners

13.10.2020

Wakefield Park Raceway Track Day in Goulburn

A track day at wakefield park raceway for Lotus high performance sports cars
 

Suitable for beginners &
road registered vehicles

In July this year, Lotus Cars Australia held another of their regular, exclusive, track days at Wakefield Park Raceway near Goulburn where owners had the whole racing circuit to themselves for the day. Owners of sports cars like the Lotus Elise, Evora or Exige are encouraged by Lotus sports car dealerships around Australian to enjoy their performance cars at track days, driving events or even participating in a Targa Rally.  Lotus also holds days at other circuits around Australia like Phillip Island, Mount Panorama Bathurst, Sydney Motorsport Park Eastern Creek and Winton Raceway.

 

The Wakefield Park racing circuit is about a 2 hour drive south of Sydney and typically what most owners do for this event is drive down on the Friday afternoon, have dinner together as a group on Friday night & then be ready first thing in the morning on Saturday to get out on the track with their vehicle. It becomes a social event as well as a track day driving experience. Wakefield Park Raceway is a 2.2 km motor racing circuit that was named after Charles Cheers Wakefield, the founder of Castrol Oil.

 

The majorty of drivers use their road registered vehicle and for people doing a track day for the first time, Lotus includes driving instruction with a professional racing driver sitting in the passenger seat with you on the track. The other element that makes Wakefield Park Raceway the perfect track for beginners is that there is lots of run off areas and very few walls. It means if you do make a mistake that in most cases you will go off into the grass and avoid damaging your vehicle.

Great weather, great people and a great fun.  Thanks to everyone at SSC and especially Mark O'Connor who missed all the fun.  John Boston and crew who stood in for Race Solutions. It was great to catch up with so many of you that I haven't seen lately so take care and see you all on the track hopefully again soon.

Yesterday was a blast, thanks a million to Mark for organising it all, Lee, Richard and the boys from SSC for running it in Mark's absence, and John B and the crew from TrackSchool for stepping in at the last minute and doing a great job.

The great thing about a Lotus Only Track Day is that owners can take their sports car to the track and drive it home again. You don't need a special race car you can use your road registered vehicle and drive it on the racing circuit with no speed limits. Lotus Cars Australia partnered with John Boston  to run the day to make sure everything was planned and organised during the day & to keep everyone safe.

 

Beginner, intermediate &
experienced groups at a track day

One of the important things Lotus Cars Australia spends a lot of time on is making sure everyone has a great driving experience on the racing circuit. To do this they split all the drivers into different groups so that each person is driving with other people of similar ability. This means each session is safe and everyone can drive at their own pace without the pressure of cars going past them regularly so they can concentrate on their driving.

You don't need any previous driving experience on a racing circuit, the team will ease you into the day and there is a special group for beginnings who get personal 1-on-1 tuition and training to get them up to speed.

One of the highlights of the year is the Lotus Cars Australia track day on the famous Mount Panorama. For less than $2,000 you can drive on this world famous race track with your own road registered car for a day that is exclusive to Lotus owners.

 

 

 

Can you use your Lotus
sports car all year round?

Lotus Cars Australia prides itself on creating a driving lifestyle that is focussed on enabling people from all walks of life or driving experience to enjoy their sports car all year round. Driver training, track days, targa rally events and social outings are run all year round that gives vehicle owners a chance to use their sports car regularly and enjoy the friendship of other driving enthusiasts.
