. Saying that you have crossed all the T's and doted all the I's for a club motorsport 

:) i just hope i have crossed them all, there no way in knowing, just nice to be ready a week out from leaving, i know there are a few who aren't,

 

Thanks for the good wishes, i hope all those coming to Bathurst have a safe trip and event, i reckon I'll just try to be safe not extra safe as that tends to slow you down to much   ;D

You guys are going to be blown away by the quality of the feilds in the various grous.
Quite a few are down at Phillip Island, now, getting the cars sorted, and are treating the lap-dash/sprints weekend of this event, as practice and set-up testing for the proper race meets in 2017
The pitlane garages will be busy!

Have your cameras ready with plenty of memory space!

Scrutineering. This will take place in our garages "at this time" so I am advised.

Now to sit by the letterbox and hope it arrives in time.......

Yeah Great to hear Dave, looking forward to seeing everyone over the weekend,

 

The 3 W.A, Z cars left on Sunday for the epic 3800 km drive to Bathurst, and the majority of the ZCCQ guys and gals leave in the morning, i hope all those travelling there have a safe drive there and back and of course out on the track

A couple of shots of the W.A. guys cars somewhere

Hope you camp blokes, err campers, have lots of fun but don't discredit us other more respectable Datsun punters :) Bugger roughing it, we are staying in a motel, toilet, shower, fridge, microwave, boiling water, who would want all that  :P

After paying the entry fee, all I could afford was free camping  ;D

 

And despite all the bad press CAMS get, they sometimes surprise you. Emailed my CAMS logbook application off yesterday at 4pm, followed up straight away with a phone call explaining why I wanted it urgently, and this morning receive an email saying its done and has been express posted to me !

 

So, get everything packed and ready tonight, sit by the letterbox tomorrow till the postie arrives, then off to Bathurst. Lucky its only a 4-ish hour trip for me.

Weekend weather forecast is for mid 20's temps, some cloud, virtually no chance of rain. Sounds about perfect :)

It's Bathurst, so be prepared for snow........

 

I did a speed weekend up there many years ago in  the first weekend of December, Saturday was mountain straight hill climb and Sunday was the chase decent, we had snow on the Friday night from Mt Victoria out to Bathurst and whilst a clear weekend was bitterly cold.

 

Take the wooly jumpers just in case, oh and take your wets so you won't have to use them. If you leave them at home, guaranteed you will need them.

Whilst only a forecast (and we know how wrong these can be) it looks like it should be good weather (but not good today  )

Someone from Sydney might want to start a thread and organise a place to meet up and travel out together, 

Entry if Free and you will be able to drive the the top of the mountain to watch all the action. 

Camping is available in the main camping area behind the pits, the sites are not powered, please see the Challenge Bathurst website for all the info on booking.

 

So is anyone else from Sydney thinking of driving out to go see this? I am dropping my RX-7 down at a local mechanic for pink slip / rego renewal on Thursday morning. So not sure if I'll be able to bring it down yet.

 

I don't think I can make the Saturday, but would love to see some S30Z's going around Bathurst.
