Drive Day 2023

Welcome to The VRA/AROCA Track & Driver Training Day. 

Pheasant Wood Circuit on Friday 10th February 2023.

This is an excellent opportunity to try out your skills on a race track, whether your first time ever, or just dusting off the cobwebs in preparation for a return to racing. 

All VRA and AROCA members, friends and families are invited, and other guests are welcome.  

IMPORTANT - Anyone who DRIVES a car on the day must have paid for the day and have a circuit licence.

To wet your appetite, have a look at the video in this link from an earlier Drive Day.

Driver Training Program

For those interested in Driver Training, we would like to have an indication of the level of training required. For example, no prior track or training experience, supersprint experience or gridded race experience. Driver Training will be tailored to each individual and topics to be covered include (based on time and availability of trainers):

A special Driver Training Briefing will provide more information and your instructors (usually experienced race car drivers) will have been briefed beforehand. Everyone participating in this program will be paired up with their instructor, so you can get to know each other.  Participation certificates can be issued where requested.
