Format & Aim
In an intensive one day’s instruction, plus a comprehensive set of Notes and accompanying Lecture, the aim is a safe education in the major aspects of competition driving on Barbagallo Raceway. The goal of the course is to progress participants much of the way towards qualifying for a Provisional Circuit Racing Licence and/or prepare them for Speed Event Participation.
Whilst the school focuses on what you need to be fast and safe in competition many of the techniques you will learn will help keep you safe on the public road as well.
Who’s Teaching You
All instructors are regular competitors in WA Motorsport, many of them have won WA State Championships, held lap records etc. More particularly, the School uses tried and true methods of instruction that have underpinned the preparation of literally hundreds of new WA Motorsport participants over many years.
Students supply their own vehicle and once enrolled will receive comprehensive information on how to prepare for the school. Ideally a relatively modern manual or paddleshift transmission
car is best. And a well maintained modern car will require little prep. Automatic transmission cars can also be used if that’s all that’s available. Students should be aware that high performance cars are absolutely not a necessity, a modestly powered manual hatch type vehicle is completely suitable. Of course, we won’t stop you bringing your Porsche GT3 RS if you absolutely have to!
Suvs/4WDs/Commercial vehicles are generally not suitable. If in doubt check with the WASCC Office.
