as with anything depends on how competitive you want to be, for me i started just to have fun, for this you will need to change the brake fluid, i use AP Racing 600 but their are many good products on the market, second check the brake pads, third go and have fun.

if you own any form of commodore and want to race a power steering cooler is a good idea, next step up get your self a set of dedicated race tyres, i started with Bridgestone 540s and i still have them three years latter just used to strip the road tyres and put them on for the race weekend put on some neg camber and reverse it all on monday.

generally at this level to race with NSW HSV Club costs as follows.

Mechanic check Car $60 assume all ok
Change Tyres and wheel alignment and reverse $160
Petrol for day u use heaps $70
Actual fee to participate $140
Lunch and drinks $20

this generally gets you about 30 laps, you could do more as everyone petters out in arvo as you get very tired, remember you dont do it for a living and your heart is racing and its not like driving round the streets you end up with heaps of sweat.

then next step as far as you want to go, dedicated wheels, bigger brakes, strut braces, coil over springs, engine work, etc.

to do club supersprinting you need a CAMS License Level 2S, if you join a CAMS Affiliated club such as HSV Owners these are granted just for being a member and paying the appropriate fee, in NSW thou we asses your competancy and driving ability and if necessary ask you to participate in one of our track skills days before we allow you onto the track, remember safety is the primary concern for you and other drivers.

check out these examples of how much fun you can have remember most of these drivers are Level 2S CAMS

look forward to seeing some of you at an event shortly, remember their are always new people like yourself starting and you drive to your own ability, you will have fun and come home safe, almost all breakages are mechanical, but these are generally over driving, something breaks! :D

Sounds great, I'm in NSW, how do I go about joining in?

I've sent off numerous email's regarding joining to the NSW HSV Owners club, and never got a reply!!!

Out of interest, what tracks do they use?
