DRIVE GROUP


The Drive group is perfectly suited for those who are keen to explore what the car is capable of when it is no longer bound by the rules of the public road. There is no safer opportunity to do so than in our Drive group, and there will be plenty of experienced drivers on hand as well to provide advice on track driving to increase your confidence. You're guaranteed to go home a better driver!


SPRINT GROUP

Participants in the Sprint group will receive a timing transmitter to be secured inside the car, so that lap times can be accurately measured. On the day, there will be 6 sessions of 15 minutes each to try and lap the track just that bit quicker. The Sprint group is ideal for those with a competitive streak, keen to improve driving skills but not quite ready for the Race category.


RACE GROUP


The biggest spectacle of the LOTD is without question the race group. The race participants will have one practice, one qualifying and three race sessions, the last one starting with a handicap grid to spice things up. This is where cars start a race in the reverse order of the previous race results, with timed gaps between cars starting a race in which the aim is to have all cars arrive at the race finish together. Guaranteed fireworks!

Even though there is a healthy rivalry between the drivers in this group, the racing is very gentlemanly, and each participant is given enough room to make sure everyone can drive their Lotus back home with a big smile. This is the easiest, and safest way to try racing!


PROFESSIONAL INSTRUCTION


Driving a Lotus is a very pure, exhilarating experience. At our Lotus-Only Track Days you can have a Professional Driver sit in your car for private tuition. You’ll get expert guidance and advice while on track to learn more about the dynamics and balance of your Lotus, correct racing lines, braking points and more.

Driver Training is $100 per session, and can be conducted in Drive sessions only. Sprint entrants can purchase driver training and run one session with the instructor in the ‘Drive’ group.

LOTD

So far I have had 100% attendance to all of these events. So what`s so good about them? It`s being in the presence of those you trust and respect.

Anyone with a Lotus needs to find out all the forward dates, and make it a priority in their calendar. It`s the best money you will ever spend on your Lotus.

LOTD Sprint Review - I'd give it 6 stars if available

Thanks SSC for making this easily the best LOTD yet! A 1:11.5 lap is a new PB and 1.3s better than last time at Wakefield Park. Still plenty more in the car, just need more in the driver.

I was also very impressed with everyone in Sprint 2 looking in their mirrors, yielding and waving traffic through. I don't think I was behind anyone for more than 2-3 corners and hopefully I didn't hold anyone up myself. Apologies if I did.

As always a big shout out to the terrific staff at SSC. Mark for all the e-mails, track briefs and tyre pressure advice, Stu and PJ for engine and suspension advice and Richie for always telling me how lovely my S1 is (I'm sure he tells this to all the customers). LOTD is 'simply' the most organised and well executed track day available.

Much appreciated and already looking forward to the next LOTD.

LOTD Race

I've only missed one these events since they started in 2012 when I was taken away to Fiji with my family. Having competed in countless motorsport events over the past 15 years I can say these are the best run and most friendly track days without doubt. Thanks to the SSC team for providing a safe, well run event so I can get my Lotus on the track where it belongs. Highly recommended.
