    About Evolve Driving

    Evolve Driving instructors are seasoned motorsport participants of varying levels including International and Supercars. Most have also completed a High Performance Driver Education certificate - a qualification becoming recognized worldwide as the benchmark for the Driver Training industry.

    Evolve Driving instructors are chosen not just for the race experience but for their ability to analyse, articulate and demonstrate optimum driving techniques.

    Lap times are not used for judging driver progression, the focus on technique and awareness. This helps drivers make real Performance Driving improvements that will benefit them on all circuits.

    Small drive group sizes (maximum 12) and running 20 min sessions is the best format to give everyone minimal on-track traffic allowing them to learn without pressure from faster cars or frustration from slower cars.

    This is so much more than a track day, it's a great investment in your on track performance!

    Don't delay get your Entry in early to avoid disappointment.

      Calling for BMWCCV members to train for the MSCA Flag Marshalling team

      The Marque Sports Car Association Vic (MSCAV) is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers which has become a leading provider of sprint events in Victoria.

      The MSCAV consists of 14 affiliated clubs including the BMWCCV. 

      The MSCAV provides a cost-effective way for member clubs to participate in 10 super sprints annually that are held at various race circuits throughout Victoria. 

      The MSCAV are calling for additional volunteers for our flag marshalling team.

      There already exists a great foundation of around 16 members and to keep this sustainable, we need to get a stable group of at least 20 volunteers. 

      New flaggies do not need experience as free training is provided.  We are very happy to have people who are enthusiastic and keen to become involved in our sport. 

      We are also putting the call out to drivers who, for whatever reasons, are not able to commit to a season of sprinting and who are willing to help out and give back to the MSCAV.  This also extends to committee members.

      You don’t have to be available for every round; even supporting a couple of events per year helps enormously.

      Volunteering as a flaggie is a great way to get up close to the action and enjoy a fun day of motorsport with some of the best track views ever.

      If you would like more information contact MSCAV President, Bruce Astbury on 0419 353 011 or email presidentmsca@msca.net.au or your MSCAV delegate, David Lumb, BMWCCV Motorsport/Driver Training on 0409 535 727
