Running motors in and bedding in brakes etc for Canterbury Car Club Members
With test days becoming so busy, we know that it’s not ideal to have cars running motors in and bedding brakes in etc at lower speeds, while others are testing at full race speed. Over the coming months we are going to trial a running in and bedding brakes in the style of a half day, once a month, on the A Track.
Due to noise restrictions and safety requirements, these days will be restricted to speeds of no more than 120km/hr. No heavy acceleration allowed.
Cost to access the circuit on one of these days will be $40 for a Canterbury Car Club Member.
You will need to wear all your normal safety apparel.
We need to stress that these days are not for full on testing.
To make sure that what you intend to do is going to be compliant, we suggest you phone the office on 03 3496003 before. It’s so important these days are used correctly. If anyone comes out and attempts to do full on testing, it will most likely mean we have to take a Friday test day away from the rest of the members.
As soon as we hit the higher noise limit, that counts as a test day gone, so these half days run in/brake bedding in days have to be run at a very low noise.
