Do I use my own car?
  • Yes, you do use your own car for this course. Using your own vehicle will give you a better understanding of its features and handling combined with your interaction with it. Driving your own car also gives you a familiar environment to learn in, allowing you to take in more information rather than trying to learn a new car and new technique at high speed.

Do I need to bring my own food?
  • No you do not need to bring food, we supply full catering for our events including tea, coffee, snacks and hot lunch. If you have any specific dietary requirements please let us know.

What safety items do I need for this event?
  • This course is conducted on the race track without speed limits. You are required to wear;

    • an Australian Standards helmet (motorsport or road motorbike). 

    • Just as with normal driving, sensible enclosed shoes (no thongs or heels), thin soled shoes are recommended to give you optimum feel of your pedals for control.

    • Non-flammable material long sleeves and pants.

What time does the event start & finish?
  • Most venues are open from 7:45am, you can arrive any time after this and prior to your drivers briefing.

  • We have a compulsory Drivers Briefing at 8:30am sharp for ALL drivers. Any driver who does not attend the Drivers Briefing will not be allowed to participate on the event. 

  • The course usually concludes by 5:00pm.

I have done other track day events but nothing with Evolve Driving. Why do I need to do the P1 booking option?

As with all Evolve Driver Training & Events programs we prioritize safety before any other subject.

This policy is in place to prioritise safety for everyone, and to ensure that existing drivers are comfortable sharing the track with others who have had the optimum introduction to our events. The professionalism of our events, and the quality of the track time that we provide are the outcomes of this policy, and that is why we have so many drivers coming back time after time.

The P1 booking option gives you 3 in-car professional coaching sessions which will help you to develop your driving and enjoy the true performance of your car safely.

Can I have someone join me on the day just as a spectator/crew?

​Spectators are welcome on our Performance Driving events, all spectators or mechanics must have a pre-booked guest ticket. Guest/Crew tickets includes event access, insurance and security as well as access to the prepaid tab at the cafeteria/food truck (coffee, snacks, drinks etc) and hot buffet lunch. 

All spectators must fill out an indemnity form and adhere to all safety requirements throughout the day. Your guest is your responsibility so please ensure they are aware of the environment they are visiting.

Our insurance/event permit does not allow for passengers in cars aside from our Evolve Driving instructors. You will not be able to take your guest on track as a passenger however if you wanted them to experience a lap we can arrange for our instructor to take them on your behalf. This would be in your car and come out of your usual drive/instructor session time. 

Why do I need to pay for my guest? They won't eat anything.

Even if your guests doesn't intend to eat anything, our catering is available and accessible for everyone and therefore we are unable to separate 'eating and non eating' spectators. Additionally, this guest ticket also covers event access, insurance and security. 

I have been driving in car club events for a while now and was taught by an experienced club member. How can a Performance Driving event help me?

The structure, amount of track time, limited on track traffic, and of course the professional instructor team make the investment of attending this course to improve yourself as a driver well worth it.

  • There are benefits for everyone and it is all amazing fun! 

  • There are no guarantees of just how much lap time improvement you will make as everyone starts from a different point and will need to learn different things however you will either;

    • reduce your lap times,

    • be able to consistently achieve your lap times

    • be more aware of how to drive safely at speed

    • have an amazing day out on track without speed limits

What venues does this course run at?

The Performance Circuit Driving course is conducted on various race tracks around Australia. We are based in Victoria so Phillip Island and Sandown are our most common venue visits but we also head to other Victoria circuits along with interstate venues such as The Bend in South Australia, Baskerville and Symmons Plains down in Tasmania and the holy grail of Australian (and arguably the worlds) Mount Panorama Bathurst. 

What if the weather is bad?

The program runs in all weather conditions although some components may be altered for safety.

All full day driver bookings include shared garage access so you and your items will be out of the elements. 

What should I do to ensure my car is ready for the event?

Your Car Will Be Driven In A High Performance Manner so you will need to check (Or Have Checked For You) the following Items;:

- Tyres: Set For ‘On Track’ Driving With At Least 6 To 10psi Higher Air Pressure Than Standard Recommendation. If Using Track Specific Tyres Please Refer To Your Tyre Dealer For Suitable Settings.

- Brakes: Ensure That You Have Sufficient Brake Pad Material For Regular High Speed & High Pressure Stopping. Also Ensure That You Have Good Quality Brake Fluid And An Adequate Fluid Level.

- Belts/Harness: Check All Belts (Including Passenger Side) Are Mounted Correctly And Are Not Worn/Frayed. If you have a harness fitted be sure that it meets Motorsport Australia safety standards 

- Camera's:  Vehicles may not have externally mounted cameras or lap timers attached.

Internal fixed cameras and lap timers must be securely mounted and feature a secondary tether. Drivers must present this equipment to our safety team for review prior to their first on-track session. No equipment may be fitted after this time unless approved by the Chief Safety Officer.

No occupant in the vehicle may use any type of handheld camera, lap timer or similar device.

Helmet mounting of camera’s is in line with Motorsport Australia policy;

- Lap Timers: We do not do any lap timing on our events however we are aware that there are a range of apps and systems fitted in vehicles. Please do not attempt to set lap times on our events as there are no prizes or awards provided, and we know that using our event format and professional instruction can help you to actually develop your driving so that when a lap time does count you will be able to deliver. 

Should I be concerned about safety on the course?

As with all Evolve Driver Training & Events programs we prioritize safety before any other subject.

  • We recommend that you complete appropriate driver training prior to attending this level course. A well-structured defensive driving course (such as our Defensive Road Safety program) will set up a lot of the awareness and skills that you will need to participate in this level course safely and competently.

  • We set out and police some very clear safety rules including Track sharing protocols and on track behavior expectations. This is a driver training event so the focus is on improving driver skills not racing for a prize.

  • There are no speed limits on this event, you are pushing you and your cars limits so safety can not 100% guaranteed.
