Mayhem single day pass for drag racing competitors

This article brought to you by:

The management of Heathcote Park listens to their feedback and on the eve of their massive Mayhem weekend, they have announced a single day competitor pass for drag racers who want to race for the cash on Saturday.

“We acknowledge that many drag racers don’t want to risk their cars on the burnout pad or by competing in the Motorkhana events. We have a reputation for delivering great value and we want everyone to get the most out of their visit to Heathcote Park,” said Russell Clarke, venue owner.

Priced at just $120, the pass gives drag racers access to the competitive drag racing event on the Saturday, kicking off with a test session in the morning and running through to the finals series in the early evening, allowing plenty of time for cool downs and work between runs.

“There’s over $5000 in prizes up for grabs on the strip, including $3500 in cash,” said Clarke.

Tickets purchased online before midnight Thursday April 5th will be able to use the express lane at the Heathcote Park gates. All you need to bring is your Photo ID and your tickets will be ready for collection, you can also print out a copy of the order online for your records.

There will also be separate cash and EFTPOS gates to make things a little quicker. NO ALCOHOL can be carried on to the premises, ALL VEHICLES WILL BE SUBJECT TO SEARCH at the front gates.

Competitor Entry Forms
You will receive competitor entry forms at the front gate when you pay for your ticket, or if you purchased a competitor entry online your entry form will be handed to you along with your other accreditation. Once you have completed the form you can present your vehicle at scrutineering for inspection during the hours listed in the schedule (which can be downloaded from our website).

Competitors who have been active on the Burnout Pad cannot return to the Drag Strip for the remainder of the competition period. They can however return to the Drag strip once competition has been completed and a large section of time has been set aside on Monday specifically for this purpose, allowing competitors to get maximum value for their entry dollar.

There are two camping areas, a ‘general’ camping area and a ‘family’ camping area for those with young children. Please indicate your preference at the front gate when paying for or collecting your tickets, and you will be directed to the appropriate area of your choosing.

There is no camping in the Pit Complex, NO TENTS can be erected in this area. Camping and camping structures can only be erected in the designated camping areas. Competitor vehicles can be parked in the camping areas overnight for security purposes.

Gate Times
There is a strict vehicle curfew in place after midnight each night and offenders will be removed from the event. Gates will close at midnight each night and will re-open at 8am daily.

Burnout Cars
All burnout vehicles must have functioning seatbelts for both the driver and one passenger only. All occupants of the vehicle must wear enclosed footwear, long pants, a long sleeved shirt and a helmet. If you do not have a helmet, one can be hired from Heathcote Park for a small fee.

All vehicles entering the Burnout Pad should have ALL wheel weights removed.

Remember to pace yourself – it’s a long weekend – if both you and your car are in good shape you can always go another round. Heathcote Park endorses the responsible consumption of alcohol.
