OCTANE Supercar Events - QLD Raceway July 10

Recommended Posts

Hi all

My name is James and I run national operations and event logistics for The Supercar Club.




OCTANE Supercar Events is a new product from The Supercar Club. At our track days you can ride in or drive one of our European Supercars at racetracks around Australia.

We recently ran a day at Eastern Creek, and this coming Friday 10 July will be at Queensland Raceway in Ipswich.




The event is similar to the V8 Race experiences where you can buy a voucher to drive one of the cars. The instructor takes you for a few laps then you change places and you get to drive the car at speed on the track. At QR you'll be doing 8-10 laps. The cars are not modified in any way - they are real supercars.




Cars are: Lotus Exige S, Aston Martin Vantage, Porsche 997 GT3, Audi R8, Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale, Lamborghini Gallardo and as a special offer to QLD car club and forum members (it is not listed on the website)... an R35 GTR!




There are also hot-lap rides in the Ariel Atom, driven by a certain driver in a white race suit...

Prices range from just $199 (for the Atom)




I'd love to see some of you there!

I'm happy to answer any questions in the thread or by email - jw@supercarclub.com.au

Places are limited (I know the GTR is filling up fast) so to book - call Crystal on 1300 798 900 or email her on cc@supercarclub.com.au


More info on the website - www.supercarevents.com.au





BTW: Mods, please let me know if any issues with posting this thread.

Hi all


Last chance booking today!

I'm heading up to Brisbane now to get everything set up, so forward any questions or bookings to Crystal on cc@supercarclub.com.au.

To answer some of the more common questions I've been getting...




1. you need to be over 16 to be a passenger and over 18 to be a driver

2. the number of laps of QR will depend on each driver but your session in the car is about 15 mins (so approx 8-10 laps)

3. we are running the FULL circuit at QR (not the Clubman short track)

4. all cars are standard, there are no speed or rev limiters other than what comes from the factory

5. the GTR is a Japanese import version with a COBB ECU tune

6. the Ferrari has an F1 transmission, the GTR has a dual-clutch paddle system, everything else is a 6-speed manual


It looks like it will be a great day - even the weather seems to be coming to the party!




NOTE that this is your LAST CHANCE to do this in Queensland for 2009. So don't miss out!


See you at the track!
