The weather report at work (usually more spot on compared to the news) said that it will be raining tomorrow! There has been some extra activity up that way lately due to a new mining site ramping up so watch out for trucks, as much as Zeds are tough a truck is always tougher :P

I'll be taking my video camera to track day (if that's ok?) and I'm sure others will have camera's also, hopefully we will have something to stick on youtube for everyone.
Damn I wish I had my Zed here with me  :( Anyone know a really cheap way to get a Zed from SA to TAS without registration?!

If it runs and is safe to drive, then get Unregistered vehicle permits (probably in the 3 states) and drive it back.  Each permit will be about $20 and will cover your TAC insurance and prevent nasty fines.

I don't know, but maybe just one from SA will cover the whole trip.  You just need a single trip permit and they are cheap.  A call to the SA version of VicRoads or RTA (I can't remember what it is called over there) will answer that question for you.

If it's not running, then I can't think of a cheaper way than going and picking it up on a trailer and driving it back.  Pretty sure you can take a trailer onto the ferry (will probably cost the same as 2 cars though).

A permit is the way to go. You have to take the permit out in the state that the car originates but you can have it for up to 20 days i think? Doesnt matter which states you cross. The whole process is pretty easy, been a couple of months since I had one but the last one I got from memory was $40 to cover the zed for 3 days whilst coming over on the boat.

Oh by the way you can take a trailer on the spirit but from memory (been a long time since I last did it) it wasn't all that bad, having said that we went over in a group so we might have got it cheaper.

Thanks for the info on the unregistered vehicle permits fellas, sounds like the way to go. The car does run but I might get my brother to do a couple of things on it for me before taking the plunge to get it from the Barossa to Launceston!
Does anyone know how many people ended up coming over for the Tassie tour in the end? I counted it at about 11 or 12 but I don't know if that's cars or people?
c'mon track day!!!

Good stuff Lurch, I still haven't seen some of the places you've been to and I live here (although it's only been 4 and a bit months).
I'm not sure what Hunter meant by rosebery, is that a vehicle inspection place or something? and no I haven't been there  :)

Sound's like it's all going well fella's. Glad you called into the ranch, it was great to put some names to faces and have a (quick) look at a your zed's. I should of lent you a set of pace notes for the gorge, just to show how they worked? remember keep those windows clean and catch ya soon,

I wasn't sure if you were being serious so for the sake of not being an ass I didnt say anything. Rosebery is a town on the west coast of tassie :P

Ha, well I guess I was being a bit of a dumb-ass then !!  ::)
Was a good day at the track today. Thanks to all the boys today for welcoming us and extra thanks to Lurch for taking me around in the 240z, twas a blast! but tell Bruce to stop being lazy and get a 5 speed  would ya! :P
You people just got me motivated to get my zed over here. I was tossing up the idea of selling it but how could I possibly do something so shameful. Especially since I live 30 minutes from Symmons Plains.
Har har  ;)

Well I got in about an hour & a half ago. I'm STUFFED!
8 Days & 1600kms later & THE BEST Driving holiday ever.
A HUGE thanks to everyone who came:
Craig, Gordo, Dave C, Bruce, Evan, Simon, Brian & Hodgie.

An MASSIVE thanks to Craig for the huge job of organizing it all & thanks to the SPAmaster for letting me flog his 240 around Tassie.

Pics to come later!
