On Thursday the 18th of February 2021, we took advantage of Sydney Motorsport Park’s newly-installed lighting system to enjoy a night of super sprinting on the Druitt (North) circuit.
We were hosted by Driving Solutions, who did a great job of ensuring a smoothly-run evening with plenty of track time for all.
Although the day started wet, by the time we were on the track the skies had cleared and we enjoyed a pleasantly cool and dry night. After a few slippery runs drivers had organised a dry line and the challenge of keeping everything pointed in the right direction eased, allowing them to focus on enjoying their cars, testing for the upcoming season and lowering their times.
The opportunity to run under lights was enjoyed by all and surely provided a new set of challenges and a refreshing change of scenery. The lighting system works very well and provides plenty of illumination to provide for safe motor sport.
With the event running at a more leisurely pace and featuring a smaller entry, the atmosphere in the pits and paddock was very relaxed and enjoyable. The usual tinkering with cars and sharing tales of glory was still evident, of course, and it was good to spend a relaxed evening catching up before the historic motor racing season kicks into top gear.
Our thanks to Driving Solutions for hosting the evening, as well as to Rod, Wayne, Richard and the motor sport team for putting the evening together.
