The New South Wales Road Racing Club (NSWRRC) motorsport development plan was established some time ago as a pathway into motorsport for women who had an interest in motor racing but had no previous experience and, perhaps, very little mechanical knowledge but were willing to learn.

The 2024 program continues the tradition of encouraging women in motorsport, but it has also been broadened to include juniors and, slots permitting, adult male students.

The program had a limited number of student positions available as the training has to fit in with the motorsport events on the training days and with the number of driving mentors available. 

What did you need to participate in the development program? Your own car and a willingness to learn as well as accepting the challenge of driving your car out of your normal comfort zone. Don’t worry you will be supervised by an experienced driving mentor who has a significant amount of race car driving experience under their belt. You will receive practical car maintenance and race car preparation training as well as a theoretical lesson on optimum racing lines and race driving techniques early in the program. You will also need a Motorsport Australia L2S Speed Licence to participate which the NSWRRC will help you obtain. 

The development program runs concurrently with the NSWRRC’s motorsport program from February till October with students participating in some of those events. The program is designed to be flexible as the training and mentoring is limited by track capacity and availability of driving mentors. The student does not have to attend all the track training days in order to receive the necessary skills to drive their car around a race track in a capable and proficient manner. However, if the student attended all ten training events they would receive both theoretical and practical track driving training under the supervision of driving mentors as outlined in the table below.
