  1. No worries Fergo. Don't forget you need a CAMS L2S or AASA licence.
  2. Congratulations on your purchase! Renotech are the best. I cannot speak highly enough of Miles and Julian. This is my car that I use for track days: If you want to do regular timed track days I can recommend joining Southern Sporting Car Club and compete in the Interclub supersprint events. Another forum member jim60t is also a member of SSCC. https://sscc.org.au/membership - that's a photo of me with my 172 on the website at the moment https://interclub.online/index.php - next event is May 5 at Eastern Creek They run very well organised events and you'll be placed in a group of cars with similar laps times (so you're not always looking in your mirrors for cars that are massively faster than you). If you want anymore info just let me know. It would be great to see another 172 at the track.

    Hi Matt I've also recently purchased a 2002 Clio 172 and I plan to take it to SMP for track days as often as I can. http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/topic/30795-syd-fs-2002-flame-red-clio-172/ If you are going to do regular track days I can definitely recommend joining Southern Sporting Car Club. https://sscc.org.au/2017/ They participate in the Interclub Supersprint Series which is a well-organised group of clubs that run track days with timed laps. https://interclub.online/index.php Their next supersprint is on 15 July. The one after that is 30 September. Plenty of track time and you'll be placed in a group of cars with similar estimated lap times so no constantly looking in your mirror for Porsche GT3's.
  5. Hi Josh Your car looks like a nice clean unit. The rego plates are awesome! I'm in a similar boat to you - just bought my first Clio and intend to take it to Eastern Creek as often as I can. I just got my car back from Renotech. Julian and Miles did a full service and they are great to deal with. They refreshed all fluids and replaced a few worn items and the car is running very nicely now. I'm not sure what area of Sydney you live in but I did the return trip from Parramatta to Hornsby and it was well worth the drive. If you are going to do regular track days I can recommend joining a car club like Southern Sporting Car Club. They participate in the Interclub Supersprint Series which is a well-organised group of clubs that run track days with timed laps. https://interclub.online/index.php In terms of mods, I bought my car with a few track mods already done so you can have a look here for a list of possible mods for your car http://www.ozrenaultsport.com/topic/30795-syd-fs-2002-flame-red-clio-172/

    Hi all I've just bought my first ever Renault! Purchased from forum member, jim60t It’s a 2002 Clio Sport 172. It’s already received a few mods from jim60t during his ownership of the car: RaceSpec tune Koni Yellow Adjustable suspension all round Eibach camber pins - running 2.5 degrees camber at the front Powerflex rear motor mount insert 195/50/15 Hankook RS3's all round Whiteline 18mm rear adjustable sway bar T2 slotted front rotors, QFM AR1M's brake pads Major belt service completed by RenoTech in December 2016 I plan to do 5-6 track days each year so the car will be mostly track-orientated but still road registered.
