I’m a T8M8 Platinum member, how do I take my hot lap?
Once we’ve got our ride day dates locked in, Platinum members will be sent an email to their nominated address detailing the dates and locations. All you need to do is reply with your preference and it’s locked in. You won’t receive an email back, so don’t fret if you don’t hear from us upon sending your request, all Platinum members are guaranteed their ride day choice. You’ll then receive a voucher via email or post approximately a month before your chosen ride day. All you need to do is email us with confirmation and you’re good to go.
Are there any restrictions on who can take a ride?
Passengers must be under 188cm in height, a waist measurement of under 91cm and chest measurement of under 122cm. Pregnant women and guests with pre-existing heart conditions and injuries (including neck/back complaints, sprains, strains and breaks) cannot take a ride. You must be over the age of 16 to take a hot lap. These restrictions are purely for the safety of our guests.
Can I choose the date, time and location of my hot lap?
Once you’ve received your voucher, the date, time and location are not negotiable. As stated above, T8M8s can choose the track at which they take their ride and a time slot can be requested if needed, but once the voucher has been issued, the details aren’t changeable.
How do I find out my hot lap time?
Vouchers are sent out by post approximately one month before each ride day. This voucher notifies you of your hot lap time and must also be brought with you on the day so you can register. Don’t lose it! Please be aware that these times are approximate and may vary. If we’re running ahead of time, we’ll try and get you in the car earlier if you’d like, but there is always the possibility that there may be delays due to car, track or weather issues.
How do I confirm my hot lap?
All you need to do is email email@example.com or call us on 07 3635 7000 with the name of the person taking the ride for each voucher. We don’t generally respond to confirmation emails, so don’t worry if you don’t hear back from us.
When should I arrive at the track and what do I do once I’m there?
We ask that you please arrive at the track about an hour before your ride time. Once you’re there, head over to the Red Bull Ampol Racing garage and check in at the sign-in table where you will be required to fill in an indemnity form. If we’re running ahead of time, we may suit you up and get you in the car earlier than your allotted time.
What should I wear?
Something you can fit a race suit over! Comfortable clothing is advised that allows you to easily get into and out of a suit and car. Pants are definitely the better option over skirts and dresses, and most importantly closed-toe shoes are essential. It’s unbelievably hot inside the car, even on the coldest days, so we recommend wearing a t-shirt or something else light underneath your suit.
Can I choose which driver and/or car I take my hot lap with?
It’s not possible to choose or request the car or driver for your hot lap in advance because we simply don’t know who will be driving when.
How do I know which car my ride will be in?
You will be allocated a car on the day of your ride by our crew.
Am I allowed to take photos and/or videos?
Absolutely! We love seeing your experiences and we encourage you and your guests to capture the day on your phones and cameras. Don’t forget to use #RedBullAmpol on Instagram and Twitter so we can see all your pictures. One of our awesome photographers will also be on hand to take a picture of you in the car, which you can download online through a link we will provide you with. We cannot allow phones, GoPros or any other kind of camera/filming device in the car with you.
Will any hospitality be provided?
Drinks and snacks are available throughout the day and lunch is also provided for guests.
Do ride days still go ahead in bad weather?
Hell yes! A bit of rain never put us off. In fact, even a lot of rain usually doesn’t, so your ride day will almost definitely still be on. We will only call a ride day off due to weather in extreme circumstances when safety is in question and guests will be advised of a rescheduled date, but feel free to call the workshop (07 3635 7000) to check if you’re concerned.
