Wet Pan/Figure 8

The Wet Surface Skid Pan and the Dry surface Figure 8 will be open from 11 am to 7 pm on the 28th and 29th of December at the festival of Jap & Euro cars. These events are designed for enthusiasts to practice the basics which we call drift training in a closed and controlled environment, held on set tracks at Eastern Creek Raceway/ Sydney Motor Sport Park venue. We encourage our members and new comers to participate as it assists them in learning car control and car dynamics on various road surfaces and conditions.

Please note, Events where we are running both the skid pan and figure 8. You can do some of both tracks but please book for the track you will be on most.
