Dehydration

The DLRA Speed Week is conducted at Lake Gairdner in the outback of the state of South Australia during the middle of summer. At this time of the year, it is one of the hotest places on earth. Entrants and spectators to Speed Week need to be well prepared and need to monitor their physical well-being each day they are exposed to these conditions.

Dehydration is common and many people who are not normally exposed to these severe conditions do not know how to monitor it or protect themselves against it. Please take the time to read this flyer, print it off and pack it with all your gear.
