The popular Marque Sport Car Association’s (MSCA) Come and Try day will return at Phillip Island later this year, with car enthusiasts of all ages encouraged to take their first step into the world of motorsports.

The program has welcomed more than 600 participants over the last six years across Victoria and South Australia, providing drivers with a safe, fun and educated experience they will never forget.

Held in December, the event will include three informational sessions that cover the basics of motorsport safety and track techniques, as well as two on-track sessions with an experienced instructor.

MSCA President, Bruce Astbury is confident that participants will receive the best-of-the-best instructors on the day to maximise their experience.

“Our instructors are handpicked from our pool of experienced competitors based on competence, attitude and communication skills,” Astbury said.

“Where we can, we match our instructors to entrants with similar cars and to ensure we are maintaining consistency in our safety standards, we conduct annual professional development sessions with all our instructors.”

Not only will participants get the chance to get behind the wheel alongside an instructor, but there are opportunities for a solo run as part of the event too.

One goal of the club’s Come and Try Day is to further encourage women to get involved in motorsport with designated run groups for all women, as well as juniors.

The event aims to increase the number of women in the motorsport industry, with the club hopeful it can welcome more women and juniors than last year’s attendance rate, which had more than 25 per cent of the field either women or juniors.

For participants interested in attending the MSCA Come and Try Day at Phillip Island, contact Astbury on [email protected]

Interested participants can enter the event via the Motorsport Australia event entry system link

The MSCA Come and Try Day will take place at the famous Phillip Island Circuit on Saturday 3 December.
