Members of the Benalla Auto Club (BAC) will be the first to taste the brand new track surface at Winton Motor Raceway, at the BAC Members Day this Sunday (7 February).
The day will be exclusively for club members, but people may join the BAC during a membership signup session in the morning.
From 9:00am, all vehicles and drivers will undergo a safety check – cars must be free of loose objects and drivers must have non-flammable, wrist-to-neck-to-ankle clothing along with a helmet.
THIS IS IN NO WAY A TEST AND TUNE DAY AND PARTICIPANTS MUST NOT DRIVE AT MORE THAN 60% OF THE CAPABILITIES OF THEIR CARS, due to the curing process for the new track surface.
The new surface will be opened officially at 10:00am, with track activities to commence shortly thereafter.
There will also be minibus tours for people to enjoy a detailed description of the resurfacing process and key improvements to the circuit.
BAC members are also invited to enjoy a BBQ lunch free of charge (an affordable charge of $5.00 applies to additional family members over the age of five).
