Drivers line up for inaugural try outs at Morgan Park

THE inaugural CAMS Super Sprint Come-and-Try Day at Morgan Park Raceway has been labelled a success.

Between 10 and 15 drivers took to the circuit on Saturday to try their hand at circuit racing.

CAMS Queensland sport and club development officer Sharyn Cooke said she was confident the day would be back next year.

"This was the first time we've held a come-and-try day in Warwick," Cooke told the Daily News.

"Our aim is to come back again next year, and hopefully even hold a couple throughout the year.

"The day ran really well and we had a good variety of cars on the track.

"We had a couple of Hyundai Excels as well as some saloon cars, open wheelers and a couple of everyday cars."

Cooke said the day was aimed at getting drivers prepared to step into circuit racing.

"We have an experienced circuit driver in the seat next to the beginner," she said.

"They tell them when to brake and what lines to take - just getting them prepared."

Cooke said she was impressed with the talent on display.

"A female driver, Nicole Busby, looked very promising," Cooke said.

"She went really well so fingers crossed she will step into a competition next year."

Despite Busby's promise, Cooke said she hoped all the drivers would step into a competition.

"I would love to get them all," she said.

"The feedback I've had so far has been very good so I'm confident we'll have good success out of the group."
