In addition to VARA’s regular run groups, the event will offer an Australian Pursuit with two races: a “Roo Rumble” and a “Kiwi Klash.”

As the club explains on its website, an Australian Pursuit is a handicap race that allows each car to compete for the overall win regardless of its VARA class. All cars start from the pits with a grid prepared by using qualifying times, then inverting the field — with the slowest car released first.

Racers without race cars can rent a Toyota pro-celebrity race car — used in the Long Beach Grand Prix — and part of Danny McKeever’s Fast Lane Driving School by contacting him at 888-948-4888.
