Race School with RaceCraft returns

The opportunity to step up a gear and practice race skills has been sorely missed so far this year, so Radical Australia has booked the full circuit at Eastern Creek for Thursday 7th June. The full day format will allow 30-minutes of fast circulation on track each hour with exercises to assist all levels of drivers, supported by race coaching and tuition. Exercises will include practice race starts and Observed License Test mock races with drivers graded into different races.

For those wanting to gain a CAMS race license this is your opportunity to undertake the OLT requirements.

For the more experienced race drivers this practice session will provide much needed testing during

the mid season break in the Radical Australia Cup.
