Fun Driving Test Gymkhana
Saturday 13 April - FIAT Club Grounds
Following the success of this event last year, the VSCCA, in conjunction with the Alvis Car Club, are putting on another day of driving tests at the FIAT club grounds. The course of between 6 and 8 tests of driving skill is set on a flat mown paddock which is gentle on vehicles and drivers.
This is not a speed event, but one of skill.
Younger people can participate as passengers who will be challenged with their own tests.
People who have never driven a vintage car can get some practice in a separate paddock area, where they can come to terms with vintage steering brakes and gearchanges. This was very popular last year. If they feel confident enough they can head out and take the tests.
Lunch will be a “bring your own picnic”
There are BBQ facilities available. Lunch was held under the trees, sitting on running boards, and without flies.
This is a very relaxed, country style event, within an hour of central Sydney.
It is a great introduction for children, grandchildren, friends and other relatives who may wish to attempt the vintage experience. Apart from anything else, it is one of the nicest picnic areas which we will have to ourselves for the day. See photos of last year's event.
