Broadford VIC, How do I get on it??

  1. crew,

    does anyone know how I can get onto Broadford racetrack? Have had some tips from various netriders that its a tight track and suitable for small bikes (see bike description under my name). Im wondering what I need to do to get onto it and what it costs...

  2. They have practice sessions up there, all you need is leathers. Talk to JohnnyO, he's the resident racing specialist.
  3. It's really simple getting onto Broadford, you just ride from the pit area up the entry lane into main straight and you're on the track :p
  4. javaman - that link was GOLD - sensational.
    All the info I need to get on Broadford - thankyou very much
  5. haven't read the wikipedia thingo but you can get onto broadford two basic ways -
    1) get a recreational (race) license by joining a bike club and then go to one of the scheduled practice days and flash your license and pay for the day (think you can get 1 day licenses on the spot too)
    2) go to one of the organised track days through www.championsridedays.com.au $125 for the day

    i've done option 2 a couple of times and its always been pretty well organised - if a bit crowded at times(!)
    Probably going to the one next saturday too if the weather holds up.
    you'll be fine on the two-smoker by the way - i had real fun on my old fzr250 up there. :grin:
  6. I received an SMS recently in relation to a package on one weekend that involved one ride day at Winton and one ride day at Broadford at somewhat reduced rates. Don't know if its been and gone though. I'd check website to be sure...
