World Speed Trials Australia

Lake Gairdner South Australia

Saturday 17th March to Monday 19th March

 

Track Layout

Based on years of previous experience the DLRA has mapped out a course that will provide 12 miles of prepared track. The track will be defined as shown in the diagrams below.
This includes the competition track(s), the pit area, spectator area, and access routes from the lake edge to the defined areas. However weather or surface conditions on the day could all change this.

All areas and access routes will be clearly defined by suitable temporary signage, bunting or other approved methods to ensure all participants and spectators are aware of the approved locations for vehicles to be driven, parked and where foot traffic is permitted. Designated non-access areas will be clearly defined and signposted.

 

Lake Gairdner is a National Park, administered by the Department of Environmnent, Water and Natural Resouces for the State of South Australia and the traditional land of the Gawler Ranges Aboriginal People. Although the lake is some 80 miles long it is only that area south of the 32nd parallel that they have given permission for Land Speed Racing. Of this area the DLRA uses only a small portion, closest to the Mt. Ive Station, as this is the only "made road" to the lake.

 

STARTLINE

All competition vehicles must form a queue in single file for the start line of their choice. Support vehicles can park adjecent to their vehicle.

Once you are in the queue you are under the direction of the starter and his assistants.

 

PITS

All vehicles in the pit area are limited to 10 kph and this will be strictly enforced.

 

All spectator vehicles to be parked on a tarp in the designated spectator parking area. Spectator vehicles found anywhere in the pits will be towed.
