Sounds like you have a plan! ten was just a number I pulled from my rear. Numbers are always the problem with this sort of thing and getting people to commit. Good luck with it and hopefully we will see some results up soon?

On the subject of good classes to suit the Zed, If they ever crank up a Nd class (ie one 'newer' than Nc) we will be laughing, as a 260Z ran at Sandown and Bathurst in 1975, entered by John Roxburgh motors and driven by that old Datsun Champ Doug Whiteford and Geoff Perry. The car DNF and was well off the 'under 3 Litre' class front runners pace, but still, one ran. It also means theres a Group C log booked 260Z out there somewhere!! I've only seen a rear on shot of the car so it could be a 2+2, someone out there might know some answers??? Dont get to excited, I'd think the thought of a Nd class would fire up a lot of the Group C owners, and would take a lot to get through, as the current classes work very well and are also very popular, but its an interesting thought anyway. I would love to see any photos if anybody has some?

The Datsun works team entered a 240K for the 1975 Bathurst and it failed to qualify....to slow!



Pretty sure it's this car right? It is a 2+2.

A friend of mine had some Bathurst Highlights video tapes we watched a while back, it showed the Prince Skyline racing at Bathurst, along with the 240k and 260z 2+2.

I might try to get him to convert that footage to digital and stick it on Youtube. He is a cameraman by trade and loves to do that sort of thing.

Yes, that one.
If you could find that very car, and it's original logbook, it would qualify as a Group C Touring car, but it must be THE car, not a replica.
It would have long ago, been put back as a road going car, and sold off as a second hand car, no longer to be found, as was the case with the majority of old prod stock racers.
