Tarmac Events

 

This year Scout Motorsport will be heading back out to Adelaide International Raceway (AIR) for a series of tarmac practice days. During these events drivers will have access to sections of the tarmac surface that have been specifically setup to test driver precision and car control.

Track setups generally consist of a combination of slower speed motorkhana style tests, slaloms of various lengths and speeds, and faster gymkhana tests.

     

These events have been setup as the perfect introduction to motorsport with an opportunity for drivers to come out and learn the skills needed to participate in tarmac motorsport events in a non competitive setting. This event also provides an opportunity for more experienced drivers to work on car setup and improve skill and precision as a preporation for other competitive events.

 

 

To enter this event drivers will be required to hold a minimum of a LSNS or L2NSJ license and general road cars can participate with the simple addition of a complying fire extinguisher. All vehicles attending will be required to pass scrutineering on the day and need to be in safe and roadworthy condition and any purpose built cars must comply with the appropriate CAMS regulations. If you are wanting to participate but don't have access to an appropriate vehicle then the Scout Motorsport Club may be able to assist as the club has a fleet of Scout owned vehicles that are specifically setup for motorsport. For more information on hiring a car see the Hire a Scout Race Car page.

 

The Motorsport team will also be running a Junior Development Program (JDP) alongside three of the practice days this year and this program is designed as an introduction to motorsport for youth within Scouting.
