On 19 January, we held our second SUPER TRACK DAY.
If it sounds big, that’s because it was! We booked out the Wakefield Park circuit exclusively for use by our customers, and our second Super Track Day proved to be even bigger than our first one.
As well as a number of clients hiring out our race cars to cure the post-racetrack depression they had been suffering over the Christmas break, we also had a few teams testing in preparation for the upcoming season, including the On Track Motorsport Porsche outfit of Garry Mennell, Kean Booker, Mark Caine and Aaron Zerefos, who took advantage of the open pit lane and generous track time to complete their shakedown for the 2018 Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.
But the highlight of our day was the corporate event we were able to organise for the Reynolds Auctions and Collier International businesses. Staff from these companies were given the chance to drive our Pulsars over the course of the day, and after a few familiarisation sessions, we activated our GPS timing systems to see who could clock the fastest time.
It’s always amazing how people who seemed nervous at the start of the day, suddenly become so much more competitive and confident once the stopwatch is running, and we saw some very impressive lap times – times that would have been competitive in the Australian Pulsar Racing Association Series.
As well as providing corporate customers with an adrenaline rush they simply don’t get at other events such as golf days, these types of experiences are also valuable for team building and bonding, and we’ve already had interest from other people who would like us to organise more of these sorts of events in the future.
If something like this sounds like it would work for your business, get in touch with us here and we can come up with the right program to suit your needs.
In the meantime, our attention now turns to some big upcoming racing events including the Wakefield 300, and the opening round of the 2018 NSW APRA Series – stay tuned for some exciting announcements on these events in the coming days!
