- CASTROL BMW E30 SCHOLARSHIP / RACE SERIES TRACK DAY
Hampton Downs, Saturday the 29th August is the venue and date for this season’s CASTROL BMW E30 Scholarship and CASTROL BMW Race Driver Series sponsored Track Day. (Lunch time BBQ will also be supplied).
So please come along and take advantage of this “last chance” test day prior to our first round for the season a fortnight later.
SKY TV’s #SKYSPEED camera’s will again be present to record this event for future SKY TV showings.
Please remember, this is a test day NOT A RACE DAY, you will be on track with our E30 scholarship participants while they undergo their driver evaluation.
The best introduction to our series is probably not through being undertaken into turn 1 by four cars while trying to take in guidance from your driving instructor!
We’ll clarify which cars to be particularly aware of during our drivers briefing at the start of the day
- CULTURE DOCUMENT.
On this note it’s probably timely for a reminder of the culture that we strive to maintain within the CASTROL BMW Race Driver Series.
Please take the time to re-acquainting yourself with our Race Series Culture Document.
This you will find attached above.
- E30 CLASS SCRUTINEERING.
This will take place at Corporate Academy Group’s (CAG) premises at 98 Kerrs Rd, Wiri, Auckland on Sunday the 30th August.
This “pre-season” E30 scrutineering day is used to visually check and seal some of the control components as outlined in our E30 Race Series Technical Regulations.
Please ensure that all holes required for sealing have been drilled PRIOR TO ATTENDING this event.
Start time will be 9.30am, with sessions running from 9.30 – 10.30am / 10.30 – 11.30am / 11.30am – 12.30pm / 1.30pm – 2.30pm / 2.30pm – 3.30pm.
Session bookings can be made through our Race Series e-mail email@example.com
Simply include your name, car number, and the session time you would like to attend.
To get each session through as quickly as possibly please aim to arrive towards the start of each session.
There is substantial “off street” parking to accommodate multiple race trailers and tow vehicles.
- PRODUCTION CLASS.
Following on from earlier correspondence on this topic, we are now at a point where a set of draft regulations has been formulated for the introduction a more “Production Based” class within our BMW Open A / B group of competitors.
For the 2015-2016 season both Open Group A and Open Group B regulations remain unchanged.
For competitors who would like to run this season with a vehicle compliant to these new regulations an updated set of these is also enclosed.
While technically part of either the Open Group A or B class (subject the vehicle weight) and not a stand alone Championship this season, there will certainly be an acknowledgement of your achievements at next years prize giving dinner.
If there is any part of these regulations you are unsure about, please ask.
