Earthworks have commenced at Eastern Creek Raceway for the construction of a permanent all-weather four-wheel drive demonstration track.
The track will feature two courses to demonstrate the varying abilities of all-wheel drive Sports Utility Vehicles, as well as more specialised body-on-frame 4WDs.
“The courses are designed to test experienced drivers and also provide total novices with the opportunity to experience off-roading,” said Fleet Drive Day event organiser, James Stewart.
“Each guest will have the opportunity to drive several vehicles over the courses, with instructors providing guidance and tuition.”
A feature of the new four-wheel drive track will be a hard-packed marshalling area, which will allow guests to comfortably enter and alight from vehicles without having to worry about muddy shoes.
