Car Club Battle is an exciting new format of driving event for car enthusiasts in the Sydney, Canberra and Wollongong region. This one-day driving event involves up to 6 teams of 4 drivers competing over 4 Battles (disciplines) of driving skills, with the aim of finding the best team of drivers on the day. Do you have what it takes? Battles will test your driving skills and consistency and participation provides you greater experience for other events you might enter. Once enrolled, a full information pack will be sent to you.
Battle 2: Timed Autocross on Skidpan Drivers will compete in a timed challenge marked out around the super slippery wet skidpan. This battle will test the mental and physical skills as drivers weigh up the need for a consistent time versus the risk of penalties or spinning out. Battle 1: Hillclimb Drivers will require high concentration and a vehicle with good torque to negotiate the twisty 800 metre hillclimb layout. The course has many elevation changes and tight corners. Although speeds are low the fun factor is high!
Battle 4: Go to Whoa Drivers will accelerate down the main straight complete a loop of the skidpan and be required to stop within a finish box. This will test each drivers skills, concentration and the vehicles braking. Battle 3: Lap Dash Drivers will complete a series of lap dashes around the 1km handling circuit. Scoring will be based on regularity with consistency rewarded (not the fastest time).
