Then Why Not Try Regularity!

NO QUESTION about it. Regularity is a great way to “test the water” in Circuit Racing.

The WA Sporting Car Club has initiated the Inaugural Twilight all-regularity event scheduled for Barbagallo Raceway on Friday March 17, 2017.

This is the first of a further three yet to be scheduled events for the remaining season.

Neither special racing machines nor roll cages are required – the roadworthy family saloon is adequate. But you do need a helmet and you do need to wear cotton or woollen long pants, and long sleeved top along with closed shoes. You also need a CAMS LS2 licence you can get at the track on the day, or online at https://www.cams.com.au/members/registration

The WASCC, the State’s premier motorsport club, is particularly focused on introducing our youth to our sport. Minimum age is 14.

Aged just 16, Perth lad ALEX RULLO has just competed in one of the toughest motor racing events in Australia – the Clipsal 500.

Get behind the Safety Car

To introduce aspiring motor racers to the sport, during the twilight break on March 17 all new starters are encouraged to take to the track behind the Safety Car to do a taste test.

This includes big kids as well.  No licence required.

Regularity is all about you – and your ability to set a lap time and maintain that time over a five-lap trial. Points are awarded for each second you’re slower than your nominated time and double points when you exceed your nominated time. The person who circulates the closest to their nominated time over the event, accruing the least number of points, is the winner.

Consistency is the Key

It’s not about speed. it’s about consistency.

Regularity is not an age-biased sport, it’s about the camaraderie, it’s about our love of automobiles, it’s about belonging to a club. It’s not about swapping paint, it’s not about out-braking the car next to you, it’s not about being first over the line.

It’s a great way to get into motor sport. And it’s a great way to exit.

At least come and take a look. Bring your family and friends, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy one of the best-kept secrets in Western Australia.
