Driver FAQ

How can I enter?

The easiest way to enter is online through our website. Get in quick while the early bird tickets are still available for the cheapest rates. You will also be able to enter on the day.

Can I enter without a WOF or Registration?

Yes, Chrome Expression Session is open to everyone, as long as your car passes scrutineering.

Can I enter without a license?

Unfortunately all drivers are required to have a minimum Restricted License. If you want to take passengers along in the cruising sessions, you will need a Full License.

Do I need a credit card to enter?

No you don't! You can pay by direct debit if you don't have a credit card.

Can I purchase alcohol at the event?

Safety is our number one priority at Chrome Expression Session. Drivers will be unable to purchase alcohol while the track is open if the bar is open during the day. Random breath tests may take place over the weekend during track time, and any driver with a blood alcohol reading of over 0.00 may have their Driver Pass removed.

I’ve just entered online, what happens next?

After you enter online, your entry takes a few days to be processed by our staff. Once it’s been processed and paid for, we will send out a confirmation email detailing everything you need to know. 

I haven’t received a confirmation email yet, what should I do?

First of all, check your junk mail. Sometimes this gets mistakenly sent to your junk mail folder. Still nothing? Send us a message via Facebook. We’ll check our records and get it out to you. A common problem is a typo in the email address which can easily be fixed.

Do I have to wear a seat belt out on the track?

Yes, seat belts must be worm by drivers and passengers at all times on the track.

Can I leave the venue and come back?

While Chrome Expression Session operates on a fairly strict no passouts rule, there are a few exceptions.
 
If you've hired an apartment, you will be able to get a limited amount of passout wristbands for spectators to come and go between your apartment and the track. These are only available for people staying at the apartments. If you're taking your car out of the venue to your apartment, you can only do so after lunch.
 
Drivers wristbands will allow you to leave the venue and come back if you need fuel etc. You will be able to leave after midday each day. It's one way traffic into the venue (except in an emergency) during the morning. This is for drivers with a valid wristband only.
 
Other then that, there are no passouts for passengers and spectators.

What happens if my car isn’t ready and I’ve already paid? Or my circumstances change and I’m unable to attend?

If you’re not 100% sure your car will be ready or you will be able to make it, you can either wait to enter on the day, or enter at the early bird prices if you can get in quick enough. If you decide you can’t make it, simply get in contact with us via email 2 weeks prior to the event and we’ll refund your entry fee less the administration fee of $30. Alternatively, you can use your pass to view the event as just a spectator.

If bought a few mates along. How can they be a passenger?

Easy. Visit the registration desk on the day, fill out an indemnity form and purchase a passenger wristband for a gold coin donation. Your donation will be going towards charity. This will let you as a passenger in any vehicle, as long as the driver lets you. If you are under 16 years old, you will need a parent or caregiver to sign for you.

Passengers are most welcome to join in the DYM, Burnout and Gymkhana sessions. There are no passengers allowed in the Racing/Drifting sessions, unless otherwise approved by event staff on the day and in full safety gear. Their decision is final. No safety gear is required for the DYM Sessions.

What’s the deal with wristbands? Can I take them off?

All drivers/passengers are required to wear the correct wristband given to them at registration. You mustn’t remove the wristband or tamper with it in any way. If you are spotted with damaged or tampered wristband, these will be removed and you will need to purchase a replacement if you wish to stay in the event. Wristbands are waterproof and hardwearing.
