Hi all
For those that don't know... my name is James and I run national operations and event logistics for The Supercar Club (we dropped the P1 name last year).

Image

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.

www.supercarevents.com.au

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.

Image

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!

Image

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)

Image

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

Cheers
James

BTW: this post has the all clear from Ash :)

Kong - great stuff! See you there :)
Cam - come down mate, you are more than welcome.
Mondi - it's not an easy car to get right straight away, and I figured it would be a smidge risky putting random punters into it at speed on a track with other cars... plus you get driven around by the Stig, and in some crazy way, that's really cool! :)

Argh. How did I miss Sydney! Will have to pay more attention to what you're doing James. Been looking for a chance to punt a new GT3 too!
C'mon, do it!
