Name of event or initiative:Ruapuna Track Day
Brief overview of the event or initiative:

Track days are run at Ruapuna Motorsport Park and are open to all Motosoc members and general public. We typically run 4 track days per year, with 1 in each university term. These days give our members a chance to push the limits of their cars in a safe environment,

What were the aims of the event or initiative?

The aim of this event is to encourage members to increase confidence in a safe environment. Trackday is a cool event that everyone loves and is always sold out!

How did you make it happen?

Our trackday representative James is in contact with the Canterbury Car Club that organises the activities of the Ruapuna Track. Several safety measures are required to run this event, James takes care of the safety and indemnity forms for us so we can run a great and safe event! We also had the support of the Christchurch Central Police at this trackday.

How did you make it better?

We run this event around 4 times a year and have been running it for a number of years. This year, all of our trackdays have sold out which hasn't happened before. We believe this is a sign of a more organised and promoted event. We promote this event through facebook and emails and run the day very smoothly. We couldn't do it without TrackDay Rep James!

How did you show your commitment to sustainability?

Trackday is an event that is difficult to be sustainable but there are processes that are involved to reduce the impact. Cars are not to be running when in the pitts, this reduces emissions. We also have procedures for oil spills etc to ensure minimal pollution.
