Circuit Club Advan Neova Challenge Round 3 Update

15th July 2016

FINAL ROUND: Labour Day Trackday Wakefield Park
Last chance to compete in the Circuit Club Advan Neova Challenge 2016!

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.

With only one round to go on October 3, the current leaderboard remains unchanged from Round 3:

1st - Jaylen S2000 - 1'05.115
2nd - Glen GTR - 1'07.077
3rd - James M3 - 1'10.012

Think you can top these times in a Club Sprint Spec car? Then get booked for the next Trackday before it sells out!

This amazing prize is up for grabs and it's not over til it's over.

Prizes:
1st - Sponsored drive at World Time Attack Challenge Club Sprint 2016 representing Circuit Club, free set of AD08R and $1000 Circuit Club voucher. That's over $3k value!!
2nd - Free set of AD08R and $500 Circuit Club voucher
3rd - Circuit Club Trackday

Thanks to Yokohama Tyre Australia and World Time Attack Challenge for sponsoring the prizes.

Launching: Circuit Club | Advan - Neova Challenge 2016

11th April 2016

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.

Hidden Behind the Scenes

09th January 2016

Circuit Club Jacky Yick

The Proconcept IPRA Team, 2007. Jacky Yick and George Yick on the right.

Originally posted by Narada Kudinar, 23.08.11.

At our Trackdays, we get a variety - owners with their girlfriends, owners with their mates, owners and their mechanics - but there is one combination I am truly at envy with. It's the owners and their Dads.

Having your Dad as part of your team must be one of the greatest combinations one could hope for. He is probably someone you looked up to as a kid, then got a little awkward with growing up as you grew bangs and started smoking. But, I can only imagine, that as you get old enough to own your own car, its Dad who is all of a sudden your best friend again.

He can wash your car for you, or maybe change the tyres and check the tyre pressures. He will spend countless hours in the backyard shed making up an aluminium undertray so you can have that extra bit of downforce at the next event. And, when all else fails, out comes that wallet to help with those couple of new tyres you need to set a PB.

Unlike your mechanic, he won't charge you for his time. Unlike your best friend, he doesn't even want to drive your car (incase he breaks something, but more than likely he doesn't want to look slower than you). And unlike your girlfriend, he won't complain that you are spending too much time with your car.

Perfect right?

Circuit Club Jacky Yick


The ultimate father/son combo I've seen is Jacky Yick and his dad George. Always smiling, always working, but always hidden in the background. I bet you never knew that although Proconcept did a great job building his now famous red Civic, that the most probable reason for Jacky's extra edge of speed was all those hours George spent on his car after hours tweaking little bits here and there in his Ashfield backyard shed.

Sadly, I just heard that he is no longer with us. So here's to you George - may father/son track car combinations continue for as long as car racing exists!

Introducing Advan Trackdays!

04th July 2013


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?!

Lots of photos have popped up from Australia Day and we go and check out how Zen Garage is going with their new shop fitout progress." style="text-align: right; margin:10px 0px 10px 200px">

About Us

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.
