Yep I'm keen. Would this be a private track hire or a car club event.

Shit I dunno... Just an idea at this stage.

Wonder if we could get a local dealership to sponsor it?

There is always the AHG Driving Centre near the airport I think it is around a thousand bucks to hire it for half a day it would be more central to travel to. if 10 or more turn up the cost would not be too bad.

I have done a track day there and while it is fun it is a very tight track and even the small straight is broken up by obstacles to keep your top speed to a minimum. Barbagello's is the best place to go but $$$'s. I attended a private track session with about 8 other cars and I think it was over $800 each. Add to that a full set of tires and brakes. I got off cheap though, one of the guys I went with cooked his C63 AMG and spent over $40000 for an engine rebuild.

Maybe the AHG is a good place to start...

Who's keen?

Re: SRT day at Barbagallo Raceway in Perth

Yeah I'm in. With enough notice I am fairly flexible on day and time of the day. It would be best to wait until the weather clears up though as last time I was there it poured down all day which severely limited track time and lap speed, especially in a rear wheel drive high performance car. Saying that the srt is all wheel drive.
