Uncles Club Track Day

number1.jpgresized

Uncles Club, almost sounds like a poorly thought out name for a pedophile ring but in fact it 's a fast growing entry level motorsport event worth a look at for those in the Auckland region.

Put on by the good folk at GVI ( http://www.genuinevehicleimports.co.nz/ ) It kind of started out from what I can make of it an "old boys club" if you like....Hence the uncles ref.

A bunch of middle aged (or older) guys that wanted to have a thrash round a track in their vehicles without having to commit too much time or expense...Oh and of course the fact that GVI's Peter Johnston is a motorsport nut !!

I have been to a couple of these now and the great thing is the variance in cars, from classic to modern....mild to wild, and now it seems the following is starting to grow from normally running two groups of cars per evening to now running three groups.

Of course it is growing, $65 from 4.30pm until 7pm at New Zealand's most modern motorsport track, its a no brainer and a great way to test your car or even just your interest in the circuit racing scene.

The rest of the pics are on the flicker (link at bottom of page)
but here is a taste of what you may encounter if you can make it along to an Uncles club track session.

Peace

  3. There is definitely no hassle; there are no other issues to
    do aside from placing it around your waist.
