Lapping / Track Days
Lapping (track days) are when you get the chance to actually take your car onto a race track and drive in a controlled environment. Lapping events are non-timed practice events, where speeds are generally limited to 80% of maximum potential to ensure safety.
Drivers are given some basic instruction on car control and flags. After the basic instruction is complete the drivers are given some on-track driving instruction. You will learn about braking points, turn-in points, late and early apexes and run-out points. Once the instructors are confident in your ability, you are then let out on the track, on your own, to enjoy the fun of driving on a race track.
Passing is allowed in lapping events, but may occur only in designated passing zones where the car being passed acknowledges the pass before it occurs.
Lapping events are the first step up to competing on a track, where speeds achieved are often higher than in Autoslalom.
