SCTD5 17Aug2019 Poster resized

Streetcar Track day allows members of the public to drive their own Street Cars on the track, in a controlled environment.

We run three groups on the day, ranging from Beginners to Pro, which is your choice however, if it is your first time we will place you into group one for beginners in order to get the feel of the circuit.  After a few track days you are welcome to move yourself up in the groups.  Each group runs in 15 minute sessions until the last hour of the day when we combine all the groups.

All safety requirements apply:  Long Sleeve Tops, Long Trousers, Closed Shoes, Crash Helmet and a valid Driver’s Licence is required.  Helmets are available for hire on the day.

Please note that your vehicle is required to go through a scrutineering check to ensure that ll is in general working order, e.g. no oil or fluid leaks, all wheel nuts are on and secure, no play on the steering, seats are fastened, brake disc have no cracks, etc.

The fees are:  R495 for WPMC Member Drivers, R660 for Non-WPMC Member Drivers and R200 for a passenger.

 

Motorcycle Track School – Saturday 17 August 2019

MCTS5 17Aug2019 Poster resized

13h15 to 13h30 Documentation and Scrutineering. (first come, first served)

13h30 Compulsory Riders’ Safety Briefing

14h00 to 18h00 Track time, in groups, alternating between A, B and C (fast, medium, and beginner)

While the fast and medium guys are on the track, we will be doing some theory sessions with the beginner group, before they go out onto the circuit.

Please wear suitable motorcycle protective clothing. (helmet, jacket, gloves, boots that cover the ankle, and preferably riding pants as well. Leather is best.)

Please fill the tank on your way to the circuit, as you can expect to do 4 x 15 minute track sessions.  (The circuit 3.267km.)

Please note that at scrutineering, we do check the safety critical items on the bike, like tyres, brakes, chain, and NO oil leaks. And we do have a noise limit of 108dB, so if the exhaust is excessively loud, you will not be permitted onto the track. If your bike is roadworthy, then you should have no problems.

There is a facility to buy snacks and hot / cold drinks above the pit area. Incidentally, we run this event from the New Pit Complex, which is on the Western side of the main straight. You need to use the first entrance (also known as the Moto-X entrance) to the circuit, which is at the robots where the municipal garden waste recycling site is. Heading north, turn left at those robots, and our entrance is on your right. Then look for the big pit complex on your right. Ask for Wayne Arendse when you arrive, and I will ensure that you are helped correctly.

The cost to enter is R560 per rider, and there is no need to pre-book. Just take note of the times above.

Please feel free to contact Wayne Arendse (wanero.arendse@transnet.net in cc)  if there is anything else that you would like to know.

Round 7 of the 2019 Drag Racing series at Killarney International Raceway on Saturday 24 August will also be a round of the South African National Championship for Motorcycle Drag Racing, as well as part of a double  header with the Short Circuit racing series – both on one ticket at R80 for adults, R20 for scholars under 16 and free for children under 12.

In addition to entries from the coastal regions, a number of top motorcycle competitors from Gauteng are expected to make the trek to Killarney, in order to take advantage of the 17 percent extra power their engines will gain by running at sea level.

In the case of a litre-class Superbike, that means anything up to 30 extra horsepower, making some of the machines almost uncontrollable – very scary for the riders, very exciting for spectators. Expect huge wheelies and spectacular wheel-spinning launches.

In the four-wheeled classes, all the usual Suspects (and we use that term deliberately) will be there, including Shaun Zurich’s  immaculately prepared Honda Civic, reputedly the quickest normally aspirated front wheel-drive car in Africa, six-cylinder Corollas and a number of (mostly street-legal) all wheel drive Audis and VW Golf Rs.

They don’t do burnouts or make a lot of noise, but  they’re astonishingly quick off the line.

There will be more loud noises at the IASCA (International Auto Sound Challenge Association) Sound-off at the New Pits Complex, as competitors vie for the loudest onboard sound systems, with readings in the region of 150 dB – that’s about as loud as a jet fighter on take-off! – from cars with batteries the size of bar fridges powering megawatt amps and cavernous speakers via multiple cables as thick as your thumb.

This Regional record event is expected to attract competitors from all over the Western Cape, all aiming to break new records and set the bar even higher than before. It will also include a new Speciality Class for those under 18 years of age, aimed at giving young enthusiasts the opportunity to compete, as well as a Specialty Class for adults; find out more about entering your car from Riaz Ahmed at 079 677 8861.

Gates open at 7:00am on Saturday 24 August and racing begins at 9:00am. Pay at the gate: Adults R80, scholars under 16 R20 and children under 12 free.

DRAG RACING TESTING ON WEDNESDAY BEFORE (MSA) DRAG RACING:

The WPMC is working to make testing opportunities available to Drag racing competitors on the Wednesday afternoon before each MSA Drag racing event.  The testing sessions will run from roughly 5pm till 6pm at a cost of R70 per driver, please note that you have to be an entered competitor for the upcoming event and you need to email your notice to attend this testing session to terri@wpmc.co.za ASAP.

PLEASE NOTE:
Please remember that Killarney has a noise management plan in place, this requires all non-roadworthy (or even roadworthy vehicles that are loud) to pass the static test before being allowed to participate on the circuit.  Then, there are drive-by readings taken during events and any vehicle exceeding the limit is excluded from further participation until the issue has been rectified.  Thereafter, another static test will need to be done before being allowed back onto the circuit.   Feel free to email paul@wpmc.co.za with any queries you may have in this regard.
