Winton

Winton Winter Sprint

Sunday 27th June 2021

   

Sprinting at Winton is exciting - the circuit has a combination of long fast straights and twisty and tight bends. It is known as Australia's Action Track. For this event we will be using both the long and short tracks.

Competition Entrants

Due to the complicated requirements for this event, we prefer participants to have experience at Winton and in Porsche Club events. Please contact Competition Director (motorsport@pcv.com.au) if you intend to run and have not run with PCV in Competition Class before. Evidence of prior track experience or satisfactory completion of a high-performance driver training course is a Club requirement for the timed competition classes. 

All competitors (Competition Entrants) will require a Dorian transponder to be fitted to their cars for official times to be recorded. Please make sure they are properly fitted and charged. Dorians can be hired for the day for $45 and must be booked at time of entry. Dorians can also be purchased from Carly via administrator@pcv.com.au.

Entrée Class

Entrants in the Entrée class get separate sessions of untimed track experience. Mentors will be provided from experienced club members. Prior advanced driver training is preferred, fire extinguishers or dorians are not required. You will need an AASA Club Racing licence, or an AASA recognised equivalent standard licence (e.g. CAMS/MA Speed Licence), an approved helmet, suitable clothing and a roadworthy vehicle. Your vehicle will have a tow hook in the tool kit, it should be fitted – either front or rear. Entrée class is the perfect introduction to track days for new members. Please note Entrée Class numbers are strictly limited (10).
