« on: November 19, 2014, 08:24:45 AM »

this will be an benefit event organised by the bmw car club for dale penney, who is apparently a bmw club member who has been diagnosed with a tumour.

i don't know him, but hey, it's a track day...

as above - 13 december at zwartkops raceway.

they will have:
 - track day sessions from 8:00 to 12:30.
          msa licenses are required, but apparently 1 event licenses can be arranged. i am busy finding out more about the single day licenses (cost, process, etc.) & will update
 - hot laps
          hot laps around zwartkops for r100.
          the organisers are looking for drivers with cars, so if you want to get some track time in (with full cars) this may be an option. if you do drive, bring as many helmets as possible.
 - shotgun challenge
          turn your keys over to your spouse. for every lap you stand it, you donate 50 bucks. bale out & you forfeit 500 bucks!!
 - racing for dale stickers
          50 backs each, available on the day

Daily licences were about R300 a throw about eighteen months ago when I  last did a track day.

Remember crash helmets for everyone, and pump your tyres harder, otherwise the shoulder wear will be horrible. I used to run 3 bar on the Seven (narrow tyres).

Insurance is often invalidated on track days.
Upon the plains bleach the bones of countless millions, who on the dawn of victory paused to rest, and there resting died.
