Minor Change to the Program, November 23

We have decided to make a small change to the program, by flipping Events 26 and 27 on Sunday – Formula Vee and the BMC challenge. This is designed to give competitors more time to prepare their cars for the BMC Challenge Group S and Formula Vee competitors should please take note.

Friday Practice

Friday Practice will be available as usual and will be conducted by the circuit/ARDC from 9:00am.

Online entry is not available, simply show up and pay on the day. The cost is $163 for HSRCA and ARDC members and $193 for non-members.

An online waiver from is available from the following link. It will be required on the day, and entrants can complete it beforehand:

Note that this waiver includes standard drivers briefing notes and a physical briefing is no longer held.

Bump In 

Bump in and set up will be on Thursday evening. The paddock will be available from 5:00pm (due to another event). The skid pan will be available at this time as well. Please unload your car and remove your trailer to the designated trailer parking areas.

Paddock Layout and Use

A Paddock layout map is provided. Please adhere to this map, particularly in taking up a position on the skid pan.

Also, please assist by parking your tender vehicle and trailer in the designated parking areas (not the paddock). HSRCA volunteers will be on hand on Thursday evening to assist with paddock management and directions.

Circuit Entry / COVID-19 Regulations

This will be a closed event with no spectators.

All attendees must be pre-registered through the MSA online entry system. Under COVID-19 regulations, entry to the circuit will be strictly controlled and all attendees will be marked off at the entrance gate.

Please look after yourselves and each other, and take care to follow good hygiene and social distancing practices. Do not attend the venue if you feel at all unwell.

Tender vehicle passes will be issued at sign on. Please insert your race car number on the tender pass.

Competitor Race Meeting Sign-On & Driver’s Briefing

This will be conducted by the race secretary in the Hinxman Room, from Friday morning. It will include a ‘Drivers Briefing’ form which needs to be read and signed for.

This process will take the place of the normal driver’s briefing on a Saturday morning (not held due to COVID).

Garages and Carports

Entries for this event are very strong. All garages and carports have already been taken (some time ago) and there is a wait list. They are allocated on a ‘first in, first served basis’.

Every possible effort is made to allocate spaces based on entrant requests, car categories and the like. With such strong entries, however, not every request can be met.

Saturday Morning Entry 

If you are not arriving at the circuit until Saturday morning, you will need to be checked off at the entry gate as a registered attendee. Please allow time to do this.
