An exciting new concept born from a simple idea – to have fun and maximise seat-time!
Come and have a go at our launch event on Saturday 30th March 2019
Sideways Skills is here!
An action-packed day of opposite-lock fun, running from 9am until 6pm. Everyone is welcome from beginner to pro. Come down on your own or as part of a team. Practice kicks off at 9am and finishes at 1pm, when we’ll stop for a quick bite to eat. Our new range of Street Food will be available to keep you full for an afternoon packed with fun driving games.
This includes a high-speed entry challenge into Pilgrims, measured with a calibrated speed gun. Plus a clipping point challenge, a slalom, a ‘run the wall’ entry into Paddock Bend from the top of Hairy Hill, a backwards-entry game into the Devil’s Elbow for anyone brave enough, etc. There will be a proximity challenge to conclude the day for everyone, an ideal opportunity for driving teams to showcase their sideways skills.
A figure-of-eight ring will be available in the paddock for the first time on a first-come, first-served basis. This is a great chance to practice your close car control, donuts or simply get sideways for the first time. Please note this is being run as a test and due to noise restrictions may have to be stopped at short notice.
Please also note the games are not compulsory. If you wish to participate in the games there will be awards to be won, however you can use the event as a practice day if you wish.
Put your Sideways Skills to the test!
