The Mini Car Club of Tasmania and the MG Car Club of Tasmania will join forces next week when they hold a special club day at Baskerville Raceway.
The event will see members from both clubs, as well general Motorsport Australia licence holders, enjoy a jam packed day of motorsport with a hill climb and a supersprint taking place at the circuit.
Already, 21 entries are locked in for the day with most of them cross entered in both parts of the event.
The hill climb will take place on a section of the track and will see competitors get around six attempts to post the fastest run, while the supersprint will see entrants get a minimum of four sessions to notch up the best lap around the popular Tasmanian circuit.
Entry for the event closes on 16 June and with the event at half capacity already, interested parties are encouraged to secure their place in as soon as they can so they don’t miss out.
With the event having to move from its original date due to poor weather, Mini Car Club of Tasmania’s secretary Nicole Neri was looking forward to getting it underway and believed members were also keen to get going.
“We have a really good range of cars already confirmed to come. Of course there will be lots of MGs and Minis, but there are also lots of others like Nissans, utes and Holden Commodores – the broad range will really make it a special day,” Neri said.
“At the moment, we’re happy with the 21 entries and we know there are more coming soon as it’s quite a popular event due to the fact that it’s a relaxed fun day where people can just come and have fun in their cars.
“We get a lot of good feedback about these events. Many of our members have been really keen to do it because it’s their only chance to do anything throughout the year.
“I think what people love most about the event is the fact that it's a bit of a get together between these two clubs, they can catch up with like-minded people and of course compete on a track at a cheap price.
“It’s fairly affordable - $120 to enter and you get a lot of track time which is the main thing. Every car is welcome too and we encourage people of all skill levels to come and try – we will certainly cater for them.”
The Mini Car Club of Tasmania and the MG Car Club of Tasmania’s Club Day will take place at Baskerville Raceway on 20 June.
