I thought it would be useful to have a thread where people can discuss some tips, tricks & traps regarding specific tracks.

I am a newbie to this (but an enthusiastic one!! :P )

So here is some hopefully useful info, links, articles as a starter;

Wakefield Park
Wakefield Park website http://wakefieldpark.com.au/index.php?o ... e&Itemid=1 (‘Circuit info’ link has map of track layout etc)

Article on different lines negotiating ‘the kink’ in the main straight at Wakefield Park http://www.circuitclub.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?t=339

Wakefield Park YouTube clip of a 1:10 lap (in a corvette Z06) – useful because it has the TrackVision info with speed, rpm, gear, track map progress, accelerometer etc http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=AU&hl=e ... re=related

Wakefield Park YouTube clip of a 1:12 lap Honda B18C (Civic I think!) – useful for learning the track in a similar revving small car.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=AU&hl=e ... re=channel

It's about 1.5 hours drive from Sydney, on a road off the main road towards Goulburn - called "Prairie Oak Rd."
