indeed!

they are pretty good down here - if you aren't interested in going full on you can ask to go with the slow guys or if you want a bit of a challenge go with the more advanced drivers - they are good at organizing everyone into groups where everyone has fun and there have been no problems in the ones ive been to

give them a call and see if they would be willing to set up timing gear - or bring your own - im not anywhere near serious enough yet so i havent even thought about it myself - or BYO stopwatch?

thats correct no passing except on area that are marked out with cones - one being the straight and the other at the back of the track

these events are mainly to get new people out onto the track and for ham fisted apes like me to figure out how the hell a car works on a track - there are serious guys that take part - hell last time i went a guy was there with his own hoist system and had tire warmers on and the lot - but if you want to do the likes of timing and serious stuff hit them up and ask if they would be able to do such a thing for you
