About IDA D-Days


Wakefield Park Raceway

This day will be a full drift day.

Track day schedule includes two track layouts being the infield circuit and whole circuit. If weather conditions are extremely wet we will assess on the day and advise which configuration we can run (sorry but we need to look after the facilities we use).

YOUR CAR WILL NEED TO PASS SCRUTINEERING - Working seat belts or valid harnesses, properly installed seats, working brakes and brake lights, working windscreen wipers if it rains, all wheel nuts present and no leaks are the basics. Convertibles will not be allowed unless they have a roll cage that extends above the driver's head. Any questions, please ask.

We have noticed that cars attending the event have had the same issues time after time so a warning system is now in place. If you do not attempt to rectify issues that have been pointed out track access will be denied.

YOU WILL NEED AN AS1698 (that little red and silver sticker) APPROVED HELMET, LONG SLEEVES, PANTS AND CLOSED SHOES. Advanced drivers are encouraged to wear race suits!

D-Day Groupings

I have seen all the DVD's, I know what I am doing! (Beginner)
I grab seconds while doing round-a-bouts. (Intermediate)
I stunt double for Tsuchiya. (Advanced)

***CARS MUST HAVE A MINIMUM HALF CAGE TO BE ELIGIBLE TO CARRY PASSENGERS*** No Beginner groups are allowed to take passengers. Your driving will be assessed on the day so if you group yourself incorrectly just to take a passenger, be prepared for disappointment.

If you know the driver the cost is $30 and will get you access to unlimited rides throughout the day with that car. It is recommended to seek a drivers permission to secure a seat before you pay for a passenger run, for drivers, it is the perfect opportunity to scare your mates.
