JSCC is holding an Eastern Creek Gymkhana Training Day - Saturday 3 December 2011
A "gymkhana" is a motorsport event that tests a drivers car and their skills in negotiating a small course set out on a flat sealed or unsealed surface. JSCC has chosen Eastern Creek's wet concrete skidpan for this purpose, as it is the premier autotest venue in NSW, probably Australia.
Each 'test' requires the driver to start and finish in a 'garage' and not hit any 'markers' on the way around the course or take a 'wrong direction', as both of these errors incurs a time penalty. Ultimately you want to find the fastest way around a test, in particular by using the handbrake or throttle to 'rotate' the car around a marker.
Each test takes 30-40 seconds to complete and your time for each run is recorded on the timing sheet that you will carry with you in your car. For an idea of the *possible* tests we might be running on the day, please check out the CAMS Motorkhana Handbook - don't worry, it is a training day so we wont make you do some of the really complicated ones!
As this will be a timed event, you will need to have a CAMS licence and be a CAMS car club member, with JSCC members given priority. In addition, CAMS L1 day licences will also be available (please contact us for details!) Please email completed entry forms to the Secretary.
Pre-registration is now closed as the event has been filled.
Please let us know if you wish to take pictures or footage of the event as a non-competitor so we can provide you with further details.
