TLR Driver Training Day 2016

Hi to all TLR members and friends


Within a couple of weeks we will be holding our annual and very successful Lotus Driver Training Day at Red Star Raceway.  I know it is an event that many look forward to participating in and the fact that we have moved it to a new venue,  Red Star Raceway, this year, will excite a lot of regulars that have become “used” to Zwartkops and equally it will be an adventure not to be missed by anyone that has not yet attended a Driver Training Day.


As usual, our regular racers will act as instructors and assist newcomers and any other  participants with getting to grips with how to negotiate the various aspects of track driving, cornering, etc.


It promises to be exciting and very educational to all, even the old hands at driving.  To the not so experienced drivers, it will be greatly beneficial to you to learn how to control your car in unfamiliar circumstances.


As usual, a number of people are making their cars available for “HOT LAPS” and again, you will experience the thrills of a race track with many of our talented race drivers.


Below are the details made available by Derek van der Merwe, this is the umpteenth DTD that he has organised.  A massive THANK YOU to Derek, once again.
