The MSCA have run their Come and Try Program for the since 2014. Over this period over 300 participants have experienced grass roots motorsport for the first time. Many of them are now CAMS affiliated Club members and are competing in our Super Sprint events on a regular basis.
The MSCAV is considered one of the best organizers of club-level motorsport in Victoria.
So if you have ever wished you could actually drive your own vehicle around Victoria’s premier racetracks: Phillip Island and Sandown The MSCA Come and Try Day program is the perfect event for you.
The Come and Try Day structure provides Sprint Day experience, with both formal and on-track instruction and training. “We have experienced drivers who will act as trainers and mentors for the participants,” says Petrina Astbury, one of the official trainers who provides classroom instruction to participants.
“Our participants attend three information sessions covering a general drivers’ briefing, driving techniques and other relevant matters in a classroom setting. In between the classroom sessions our participants have two on-track runs with an experienced driving instructor. They then experience 2 solo runs to complete the day’s fun. Experienced V8 Super Car driver Cam McConville will be available to provide further knowledge. (Subject to final confirmation)
“The Participants are provided with a Come and Try Manual before the event, to familiarize themselves with the vehicle requirements, and what they need to bring on the day”. Says Petrina.
“As well as encouraging new people to participate in motorsport as competitors, the Come and Try program gives our seasoned competitors the opportunity to give back to the sport that has provided so much enjoyment over the years.”
