Win a drive in the
Hyper X1 Racer!
Winton Drive School Track Days would like to offer you the chance to win a drive day in the Hyper X1 Racer, an open wheeler formula race car. Guided by Hypers lead driver and engineers, you will spend the day learning how to make the most of downforce grip and slick tyres to experience Winton Raceway like never before.
The Hyper X1 Racer will lap Winton faster than a V8 Supercar and we would love to see a truly deserving driver given this opportunity. Every single person who has entered a Winton Drive School Track Day will be in the running to win this amazing opportunity and we encourage you to make the most of our days to show us you are the perfect person for the job. The winner will be chosen on the final Drive School event of the year (17/12/2021) from the most deserving drivers who have attended the Winton Drive School Track Days and will be offered the Hyper X1 Racer to drive in the first Drive School Track Day of 2022. To be in the running, simply enter any Winton Drive School Track Day before 17/12/2021, where you can see the Hyper X1 Racers in action and learn more about the dream drive.
All cars, both street and track only, are welcome at Winton’s Drive School Track Days. This means everything from a Holden Astra, a Lamborghini or a Formula 3 car. The only requirement is that the vehicle is roadworthy and in safe condition (Brakes, Tyres, no oil leaks, etc). Not to worry! Groups are split so that street and track day cars get their own sessions and are not on track at the same time as the open wheel race cars.
Competitors are encouraged to arrive between 7:30am – 8am for driver sign in, pit garage allocation and to receive your individual timing device. Drivers briefing begins at 8:30 with the first group on track immediately following at 9am. Groups will hit the track in 20 minute sessions, rotating non stop all day with only a single pause for lunch in order to ensure maximum possible track time.
The Winton café is open for all to purchase lunch and beverages on the day. Corporate group meal packages are available for a sit down lunch in the main building, $40 – $50 per person.
This schedule will give the driver an average of 6-8 sessions in a day, totalling 2 – 2.6 hours of driving on track depending on the number of groups required. All cars are timed in every session with live data available, meaning family and friends can watch your lap times are you cross the line and drivers are able to benchmark their improvement throughout the day.
Up to 2 passenger sessions are available. Passengers are required to bring their own approved helmet. Motocross helmets not accepted.
For those looking to obtain their racing license, Observed License Test’s (OLT) can be undertaken at a Winton Drive School Track Day.
The event is covered by a dedicated photographer to make sure you have something to remember the day by and take home to show friends and family or post online. Please contact Niko French Media for any special requests.
