Process to attend private practice days at Baskerville and Symmons Plains Raceways
Each month “if available”, several days may be nominated for private practice car sessions at each circuit. These will be advertised on both the MST Website and the MST Facebook page. In order to drive on our track’s, you will need to have a CAMS competition Speed licence (L2S) or higher and you also will need a current CAMS affiliated Car Club membership. The current hire fees are as follows; $150.00 per Driver per day or a discount rate of $100.00 per Driver per day is offered to current financial members of MST shareholder/member clubs. Those membership clubs are:
MG Car Club of Tasmania
Mini Car Club of Tasmania
Light Car Club of Tasmania
Hobart Sporting Car Club
Club Motori Italia
Track activity commences at 9.00am and finishes at 4pm with gates opening at 7.00am. All participants in Private Practice days must wear wrist-to-neck-to-ankle fire resistant clothing and a helmet that meets Australian Standard 1698 or higher. If you have a race suit, it is recommended you wear it along with all other safety items.
Upon arrival at the Raceway you will need to fill in the Private Practice Form and sign it, show your CAMS Licence and Car Club membership. You will then be briefed by our official using briefing notes and please note the map of the Raceway which shows the layout of the raceway, position of traps, pit entry and exit and the direction of travel around the Raceway. They will then receipt the hire fee received from you.
Please remember that our practice days are for mechanical testing, driver awareness and driver training and there is No Racing allowed, (that’s what club days and Race meetings are for) and that more than one driver are permitted to drive in a single vehicle provided they meet the licence requirements and have paid and signed the Private Practice Form. Where you would like to attend either raceway for a practice session outside that of the set days, this may be able to be accommodated and you will need to either email [email protected] or telephone our General Manager 0447 315 114 who will be able to confirm if the Raceway/s are available on the date you are seeking. Please bear in mind that both raceways are regularly hired for a range of events each month.
