WAKEFIELD INFO


AE86 FESTIVAL, DRIFT AND GRIP DAY AT WAKEFIELD PARK - 9th DECEMBER 2006
Goulburn NSW.

Here's the final IDA event for the year, incorporating not only the usual drift and grip sessions, but is also the official track day of the annual AE86 owners' meeting! The day will be split into 20-minute sessions to give drift and grip drivers plenty of track time, all day. Entry to the day gives all drivers access to all sessions, so you can drive all day if you could handle it!

FOR DRIFTERS: The usual extended Wakefield layout will be used, so apart from the armco section of the front straight, the entire circuit is open for drift! No passengers allowed at all.

FOR GRIP DRIVERS: Feel free to enter any sessions you like, and that includes drifting if you feel like getting sideways!
Transponders will be available for lap timing. Grip drivers who pre-register will be able to use a timing transponder free of charge, otherwise, the rental fee is $15.
There will be informal award trophies for the fastest lap times for the following classes: NA Sprinter, Forced Induction Sprinter, and Fastest Lap Overall.
Most sessions will be timed, but some will be untimed for driver training purposes - this means if you have signed on as a driver, you can also ride passenger with your mate in the untimed sessions.

FOR AE86 DRIVERS: Drive in anything you like, and we also have a cruise session at lunch (strict 40km/h speed limit!) so everyone can get out on the track at once with your mates for a photo opportunity.

WHAT YOU NEED:
If you have an appropriate CAMS or AASA licence, Wakefield will honour it, but if you don't, you'll need to purchase a yearly Wakefield licence, available on the day for about $40. Don't forget your helmet and long sleeves as well. Read the entry form for more details on requirements.


PRE-ENTRIES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER THURSDAY 7TH DECEMBER, AS THE PAYMENT MUST HAVE 24 HOURS TO CLEAR BEFORE YOUR REGISTRATION IS SECURED. IF YOU DON'T MANAGE TO PRE-REGISTER, YOU CAN TURN UP ON THE DAY AND STILL ENTER.

IF THE DAY BOOKS OUT, THERE WILL BE NOTIFICATION HERE. AS OF NOW, ENTRIES ARE STILL OPEN.

Im keen as always, except may be doing body and motor work at the time and then i wouldnt be coming.

The drift event does look basically non-existant, and ur right garth, its less headfuck and more fun to organise our own things.

Im keen for GOR run!!

And on the subject of magazine coverage, when will there be the report of AE86 meet 2005?!

Has anyone been watching that show on SBS or was it ABC? about the 5 guys that are re-enacting a roadtrip that happened 80years ago? Peking to Paris.. and theyre using the same 80yearold cars.. Its a total nightmare the crap theyre going thru like being in countries they cant speak the language and having to organise a boat to take their cars across a lake. Or being in the middle of nowhere and snapping a propeller shaft!

Made me thinkback to the Sydney convoy to Melb ;)So why couldnt we do the same thing with hachis? Peking to Paris anyone? :p I was talking to Nye this w/e and I dreamt up an idea... the 2006 convoy will be to Japan upon where we attend a 32hr straight driftday, buy a hachi between us and camp out at the track and take turns abusing it. :p

Haha. Ok back to the reality inwhere we have nor the time or money to achieve such a journey.. but probably will oneday when were all in our 50's haha.

Anyways all that aside there is NO drift event in Melb in December as far as im aware so that counts that out anyway... Melbourne again?? Why not I guess. The other option is Brissy or Adelaide but I dunno, most of my hachi mates are melbournites... theres the awesome roads to be had on the way there and ofcourse its closest...

we will try to make it happen but there needs to be more than just the cruise to make it worthwhile to come so far..

a track day would be good. with enough entrants would it not be viable to hire the track for an afternoon? i know there is alot more to it than that but yeah..

maybe i will try to get Shane and Sam, Ant and myself psyced. also Brett is going to try to get his car registered in the very near future.. :!: :!: :!:

dimitri, if the brissie boys make a decent appearance it would change the no-show of the last few years, not that its not warranted... 2000kms is a long fucking way, but mumblezz pauly did it :D

I actually think the last 2 years meetings werentinvolving enough... you dont have the time to talk to everyone.. i guess it will be different this year with no drift event to attend.

I vote for new location in melb thistime... that park is getting old =p

Can i ask "WHY MELBOURNE"

If the last one was there, why another one.

Im sure all the sydney hachi would love to touge in their own backyard against foreigners.

Justa thought.

And also because sydney is in the middle

QLD AND VIC could both attend easily.

Seems easier to me.
