The next Winton Fun Day is scheduled for Sunday January 27th 2008.

The Fun Day is a "come and try" day and is designed to allow the average motorist access to a real race track under controlled conditions.

Cost:
Is $30 per driver and $30 per passenger

Programme:
GATES OPEN 8am
Scrutineering, not long after that
Drivers Briefing at around 9.00 - 9.30


Requirements:
Bring your car, an Australian Standard Approved helmet, the helmet can be either open or closed face, fire proof clothes that cover you from neck to ankle to wrist (cotton or wool clothes are good). Runners are not the preferred footwear, Blundstones boots (or similar) or any leather type shoe is preferable

Make sure your car has no oil/coolant leaks, fitted seat belts, battery is secure, wheels nuts are tights, no loose items in the car or boot.

The Car does not have to be registered, but has to road/race worthy. Tyres need to be in good nick, tread depth is not normally a problem unless wire is poking out.

There are normally no checks done of lights except for brake lights except if it is an overcast, rainy day, then there may be checks for lights as well as wipers.

Tow bar tongues and bull bars must be removed.

You do not need to have a race licence, club licence or indeed a car licence abut you must be over 16 to drive or be a passenger.

And very importantly, bring a smart, alert attitude, because there is some very fast cars out there, whilst it is not a race meeting, some people bring race cars and we push them hard to behave appropriately around first timers.

Food and drinks are available through a canteen

Should be a great day, see you there....
