Pakenham Auto Club, Come & Try Day - Saturday 21st June

At 405 McGregor Rd, Pakenham (under the HV Powerlines) Melways page 323 A4
This event is designed to give participants a basic understanding of motorsport and the opportunity to drive some typical motorkhana tests under the guidance of experienced competitors.

The event is aimed, primarily, at juniors (at least 12 and less than 18 years of age), but adults who have never belonged to a motorsport club may be accepted, space permitting. A maximum of twenty (20) participants will be accepted. Juniors do not need to supply their own car as the PAC Junior Motorsport Club Cars will be at their disposal; both manual and automatic cars will be available. Adults will need to use their own car. All cars will be checked for safety by club scrutineers before being allowed to participate. A nominal charge of $10 per Junior and $20 per Adult will be made to minimise the cost to the club of running the event.

Juniors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who remains at the venue throughout the day. Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend the Participant Briefing as this will give them a good insight into what to expect if the child proceeds further into a motor sporting career

After signing on, we will start with a Participant Briefing – a classroom session that gives a brief overview and history of the Pakenham Auto Club, provides some fundamental motorsport safety information and describes the various different types of motorsport from the basic club motorkhana up to the World Formula 1 Grand Prix Championship.
Next, we will move to the practical session. Participants will be split into small groups, each assigned a Group Leader and an Instructor/Demonstrator. Motorsport is dangerous, so Participants are required to respond immediately to any instruction from a Group Leader or Instructor/Demonstrator. A Participant failing to do so may be excluded from the premises

This is a come-and-try fun day. There will be no timing. There will be no scoring. There will be no event awards. The day will be very casual, but will follow proper motorsport procedure.

The Event will be run as part of the 2014 NGK VICTORIAN MOTORKHANA CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND 5 and under its Supplementary Regulations. These Sup Regs and the Appendix for the Come & Try are available on pakenhamautoclub.org.au
