2016 Ladies Club Level Motorsport Development Program


The main objective of the NSW Road Racing Club’s Club Level Motorsport Ladies Development Program was to take the intimidation out of the sport for women.

The Ladies Development Program (LDP) was a six part program, run over 4 months, which took ladies through all aspects of club level motorsport. At the end of the program ladies now feel comfortable to be able to enter Supersprints, Motorkhana’s, Hillclimbs and Regularity events with confidence, knowledge and event readiness.

Participants of the program are now confident in being able to read and understand supplementary regulations, know which class their vehicle falls into, fill out event entry forms, know what clothing they are required to wear, how to check the cars water, oil, tyre tread and what tyre pressures they should be running, know what to do when they get to a race track on event day and most importantly how to be competitive on the track.

The LDP involved a series of skill building events which included:

  • - Two driver training sessions with Barton Mawer – racing driver and high performance driver coach

  • - Hillclimb training (from senior NSWRRC club members)

  • - Supersprint training (from senior NSWRRC club members)

  • - Regularity training (from senior NSWRRC club members)

  • - Motorkhana training (from senior RTDC club members)

  • - Officials training (from senior accredited CAMS officials)
