Racing against the clock

A WA company has set out to bring the joy of motor racing to the State’s business community.

MC Motorsport offers corporate half, three quarter or full days at its driver facility near the Wanneroo International Kartway which can include catering and mini bus transport to and from the track.

The company is targeting the corporate market but also has had a good response from individual drivers.

It sets out four challenges and the group is split into teams. Each driver is given two runs at each challenge and has a choice of one of two MR2 Spyders or a Celica.

Teams race the clock and not each other, which allows for lots of adrenalin but reduced danger.

Drivers are given two 15 minute lessons – one before they start the first challenge and again after the second challenge.

MC Motorsport business development consultant John Clark says the event is not just about having fun.

“We encourage people to learn good driving techniques,” he says.

Mr Clark says that, by the second driver training break, drivers are starting to become quite competitive.

“By the end of the event people are hopping out of the cars and racing to look at the scoreboard,” he says.

Mr Clark says corporate days where companies took staff or clients to take part made up half of the MC’s business.

Prices for the Motor Challenge start at $171 per person for a half-day event.
