Events O’Neill was founded in 1999 to take over the management of a private track day for Sydney stockbroker and Ferrari enthusiast Peter Burrows. Still running today, the “Burrows Drive Day” has become the premier invitational track day for high end European sports cars in Australia. The Sydney event format was exported to Melbourne in 2004 and the two events now attract in excess of 1,200 entries annually.
Peter Burrows conceived the Burrows Drive Day over 10 years ago as an opportunity for himself and a few mates to enjoy their cars on a closed, safe circuit.
The day was resurrected in 1999 and over the past 4 years, has grown to become one of the most popular drive days in NSW for owners of prestige vehicles.
Burrows Drive Days
From its humble beginnings of a few mates, the Burrows Drive Days have developed into an invitation only, limited driver event that is regularly booked out, while attracting some of the most exotic machinery in the country.
The event has become patronised by not only the owners of this exotica, but also the manufacturers of these cars who recognise the day as an opportunity to allow their clients to experience their machinery in the arena for which they were created.
The Burrows Drive Day is about learning more about you and your vehicles capabilities. All of our events arestrictly non-competitive and are set up for people to use their own road going vehicle on the circuit. So, if you’re fed up with speed humps, cameras and traffic, this is your chance to go and play
Added to this is the driving instruction from professional racing drivers to help all who attend understand not only the track and its intricacies, but also their cars and how to handle them at speed. On our day, professional instructors will sit beside you in your car and, without any pressure, help you with the correct lines through the corners and generally make you feel competent on the track and in your car.
