Club Track Days
The Mazda MX-5 Club of NSW arranges track days at Sydney Motorsport Park Amaroo Circuit (South), Pheasant Wood and Winton Raceway in Victoria. Club track days are mostly held on a Sunday (sometimes Saturday or Monday), for the "weekend racers". The events are organised so that there are a limited number of cars on track during each run, and those cars and drivers are selected to have similar lap times and/or driver experience. They are held on a supersprint basis with drivers competing against the clock. Racing against other cars is strictly forbidden. Newcomers are always welcome at our track days. You can have as much fun in a standard road car as those with dedicated race MX-5s. There is always a session for first timers where experienced drivers will advise you.
2023 Club Track Days
This season will run for 12 months from January to December 2023. One drop-round is excluded from the point score.
