The self styled auto-vigilantes of the RushHHour Underground are having another track day at Marulan on 18 July between 9am and 4pm.
They sent out the following message to their Track Day Group which I personally found enlightening when it comes to the perils of running this kind of event:
- Hey all,
Track day is slowly creeping up and entrants are now open!
Weekly NewsletterEvery Thursday afternoon, we package up the most-read and trending RiotACT stories of the past seven days and deliver straight to your inbox..
## Entry is $100
## Track License is $25 (unless you already have one!)
If you want a guaranteed spot, you can pay me or Kyle W. directly, we cannot guarantee you will get a spot on the day – aint my problem if you turn up and its full.
Food and drinks are available from the track cafeteria, including hot food, breakfast etc.
*IF YOU ARE NOT ENTERED – DO NOT PARK IN THE PIT AREA* – no special treatment applies, keep em outa the pit area because its a pain in the ass when I have to find drivers to move their cars.
This round will be our chance to show we can be organised and still tear it up at the same time!
-Out of respect- please do not do burnouts on the road leading up to the track, or the intersection, neighbours of the track whinged alot last time – they even took photos of the tire marks! This is a big pain for the track staff who are fighting to keep the track open as it is so please keep it quiet and obey speed limits coming in
-Track Rules will apply!-, if you go off the track more than 3 times in a round, you will be excluded in the next round – last time we got away with way more than we should have, track staff have asked me to help keep it tame – the way i look at it, act like its a high speed chase, if you lose it, chances are you’re f***ed! But 3 times per round is fair i think – stand-still Burnouts and heli’s are not allowed on the track – yet… sorry chaps
There is a noise limit at the track of 90db, although last time we got away with having a few extremely loud cars, this includes spectators cars! It would need to be pretty insanely loud to hit 90db– track staff can quieten down cars if necessary.
I will need some volunteers to be track marshall’s on the day – I might not be entering this round so I can focus on keeping things organised off the track… maybe…. – reply back if you are interested in being a track marshall – we need a few!.
This is an exclusive RushhouR event! – human rights do not apply – If you refuse to follow a reasonable direction from a Marshall or official RH staff, you’ll be asked to leave, if you’re a smart ass about it, we’ll Sydney harbour your missus while you’re at work if you’re a chick (or don’t have a missus), we’ll spread rumours that you have syphalis – If you have a problem with any of the rules, don’t come! – its a good safe day out for the family so bring your kids along!
There MAY be an AFP presence on the day – they expressed interest in attending (to support us) and if that is the case – it would be a good idea to follow the above, it would be good to show them we are genuine supporters for a proper Canberra based motorsport track.
PS: The secret password is: *skids*
