With the final Super TraxDay of 2012 coming up on the 9th of December and our mentioning of Super TraxDay on the site. What does that mean?
Super TraxDay’s are hosted by the Zwartkops Raceway.
1. You pay R380 per driver and R60 per passenger (Pricing 2012)
2. All newbies are called to the clerk of the course office
3. You are instructed to follow a car around the track to get an idea of the race lines. This takes place over four laps.
4. All participants are called to the clerk of the course office. The rules are explained. In short ….
a) You may only overtake in one of the three straights. No passing in the corners.
b) No tailgating, No slip streaming, YOU DO NOT KNOW the person in front of you and you might struggle to convince your insurance company to pay.
c) Keep your racing line, the faster cars can pass IN THE STRAIGHTS!
They have two pro’s which you can ask to assist. They take your car for four laps with you as passenger and then it is your turn.
You stick to the rules and you have fun. You do not stick to the rules, you go HOME.
You are then divided into classes. Class A – Cars with an engine capacity of 2000cc and up, class B – engine capacity of less than 2000cc and class C – racing cars. As a newbie you will be placed with class B immaterial of engine size or type of car.
Each “Class” gets twenty minutes in the hour. Activities start after nine am and lasts to about four pm with a lunch break for the marshals in between.
A Super Way To Test Your New Company Car!
Due to the events taking place on Sundays, noise levels are limited. Something I do not understand. There is a race track. Zwartkops Raceway and the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit. And then they go and build residential area’s within ear shot? Airports DITTO. Coal fueled power stations, DITTO.
EVEN WORSE, you know there is a race track, yet you buy, ……… and then you complain. Do you get different levels of stupid?
