There was much anticipation with Jason's big power Evo competing at Round 3, however some suspected engine problems saw the car being retired early (wisely) before a time could be submitted.

When Yokohama came to us back in 2011 with a new idea to reward users of their then newly launched Neova tyre we were intrigued. We loved the performance and usability of the Advan Neova right from get-go (and we loved it more again when they launched the AD08R some years later) so coupled with the chance to promote some friendly competition we knew the Advan Neova Cup was an event worth promoting.
At the same time, things were really heating up at the World Time Attack Challenge. We watched in awe as the big guns battled it out in Pro Class, each year getting faster and sporting more aero than the year before. But closest to our hearts has always been the Club Sprint Class. Here we got to watch and support our friends, the people who tracked with us at our humble Wakefield Park trackdays. These were the people who started with street cars and slowly developed their cars and themselves into competition machines.
So when this year an opportunity came up to bring everything together we knew we wanted to be a part. Today we are excited to present to you the Circuit Club Advan Neova Challenge for 2016.
The format is simple. Your car must meet WTAC Club Sprint Class regulations and be running on Advan Neovas. From there, you can submit a Natsoft lap time from any Circuit Club Trackday from now until WTAC October 2016. The leader board will be updated after each Trackday and the fastest outright lap times on the leader board at the end of our Labour Day Trackday 2016 at Wakefield Park will take home these amazing prizes.
Circuit Club Advan Neova Challenge Prizes
Entry into the competition is free and all competitors will receive a complimentary Competitors Pack (we’re still working on putting this pack together) and be in with a chance on some cool lucky door prizes (also to be confirmed!).
If you have ever thought about competing in time attack don’t miss this opportunity! And if you’re not so much into competing at WTAC please support the competitors when you see them out at Trackdays and ultimately the winner who will be representing all of us at Circuit Club in the Club Sprint Class WTAC 2016!

For the first time, Yokohama Advan Tyres are hosting their very own Trackdays, hosted by your's truly! The aim? To thank their loyal customers by providing a bargain event as well as introduce new Advan tyres to those who don't use them yet.
Run in a very similar way to our normal Circuit Club events, the trackdays will cater to all types of drivers, from "track whores" to "track virgins" as well as World Time Attack Challengers who are looking to get some practice laps in.
There will be two events - Winton on the 3rd August and Wakefield on the 21st August. The prices are $170 and $180 respectively, but if you are already running Yokohama Tyres (ADVAN A050, A048, AD08 or the new AD08Rs) simply enter the code NEOVA-R when booking to receive $35 off.
Each event will be timed and include a tyre technician on hand with a Pyrometer to help you make the most of your car setup.
Lastly, the long awaited new Advan Neova AD08-R will be available to preview and preorder!
With only 45 places available at each event, spots are strictly limited!
The Best Photos So Far
We are always eager to see what photographers can come up with a couple of weeks after shooting one of our events – especially anticipating whether we will see one with our own car in it! But Circuit Club have always been big supporters of great photography, so here are 5 that really did it for us over the last couple of weeks.
JDM YARD Honda – This photo really captures the anticipation of heading out for your first shakedown laps in a freshly finished car. Car and driver waiting for a gap in traffic and the team collectively standing there with worried looks on their faces…
S12 Silvia – What a rare car! Not only is it nice to see the less popular, neglected siblings of iconic cars, but the mid-corner stance of this car suggests its also very nicely sorted too!
R31 Pre-Apex – Matt Mead said it all when he posted this on our FB page – This thing was sick! Great photo – a very difficult one to shoot too.
No Speed Limits – Beautiful shot, but more interestingly, great to see the difference between a high-powered car on the brakes and the less powerful Honda still on it at the apex of Turn 1!
Maximum – This RX-7 is just doing it all – opposite lock with the rear tyre hanging off the very edge of the racetrack. If this car isn’t on the limit, then what is?!
New Zen = More Zen
This week we dropped in for a casual hello at Zen Garage to check out the progress of the new shop fitout. After only a year, they’ve decided to change things up and the progress is already looking stunning. Somehow, they’ve reconfigured the space to make it look and feel so much bigger!
There is more to come though – supposedly there might be some grass coming?!
Circuit Club was founded in 2003 with one goal in mind, to make motorsport accessible through Trackdays. What started out simply as a bunch of mates with a love of cars and driving fast has rapidly grown into a community of track-goers keen to share their passion. Since our very first Trackday at Wakefield Park, we have held over 50 Trackday events in New South Wales and Victoria and played a bit part in shaping what is now a very active track community. Over the years over a thousand drivers have found a passion for track driving through Circuit Club and we take great pride in knowing that many of these people are now driving competitively in events such as Super Sprints and Superlap Time Attack.
