Online registration now available, thanks to Pests input, thank you to those who were motivated enough to manually enrol, we have added you to the online registration, manual registration is still available to all but now not compulsory, we will add in your details if we receive your manual entry.

Remember early bird registration runs out on the 13th December, this is the best value organised, fed, marshalled and rewarded track time you will find!

No excuses now, you don't have to pick up a pen or scan stuff, just tap away on your keyboard and internet pay your entry fee, voila!!

Definitely book your accommodation before the motelier's open up to the public again.

If you can't afford this one you'll never make it, can you afford not to, its only the price of a tank of gas to enter. Throw the sleeping bag in the car! We feed you on the day, you might walk away with a premium prize?

Early Bird entry runs out next week, get in now to save on entry cost.

Those who have entered and not paid, you will be up for $125 after next Friday.

Remember the day is road car focussed, get your mates along for the best value track time ever.
