ZCCQ 30TH Anniversary

Recommended Posts

As the heading suggests .They are clocking up 30years .So feeling a bit old and there is no better way to get around feeling old, than with a party. So they are planning a few things in November . Speed event ,show & shine , navigation run, that sort of thing. I think all are invited if you would like to be part of this.

Details to follow.

Just to give a heads up on this event . ZCCQ have made a group booking for themselves in the Sprint meet on 23November(Lakeside Park). So there will be a number of Z's there on the day. But there is no reason why forum members could form their own group booking if they wished to . The thing is you need at least 10 runners to break even. After that your entry fee comes down in price to a total of fifteens runners for a group(MAX) which is a saving of $45 per entry over standard entry. Now I am not sure if this is possible at this stage and ZCCQ can not do any more groups as they have a booking. It only makes sense if there are 15 or more from here or others forums that want to run.

 

PM me if you have an interest in the day.

 

 

FULL details on the weekend will be available this week.

So, just to clarify,

Zccq have their own grid of 15 cars, you need to be a financial  member, and be invited, to be in this elite group of 15.

 

Anyone else can contact QR/Lakeside, and enter, in other groups, or if enough others can organise themselves to run as a group of 15, or less, you can purchase your own "group" direct from the track operator.

No requirement to have a cams license, or be a member of any cams club. Way easier !!

 

Not at all like the 25th anniversary event, where the zccq just bought the day, and let everyone who had a Nissan Datsun was able to just come out and play, three groups, total 60 cars!

That was fun !

 

In OP, there are lots of other things being planned to coincide with this, we might hopefully be told, after.

The thing is that all the Zeds can run around together in the one group and race each other, err, wave and smile at each other ;)  From what I've heard it will be a sell out, lots looking forward to it. Spewin that I won't be able to participate  :(

So Saturday the 22November will be a north side Navigation event starting with a breakfast and the run will go for about 4 hours up around , well some where around the north coast or Sunshine coast . What you do after that is up you . But the Sunday will start at Lakeside Raceway at 9.00am with a car display on the grassy knoll in front of the training building. This is to be followed by a HAPPYLAPS event which will include a BBQ lunch and 1/2 hour track time for $35 per person and you can take passengers with you.

The Sprints will be in the afternoon from 12.30 to around 4.00pm. Now ZCCQ has a group of 15 cars running but the general ZCCQ membership has to enter the same way everyone  else has to .Now full details will be at the ZCCQ website VERY SOON . Lee and Shaun will post up the posters for the event sometime soon and that will have links to the required entry forms as well. The sprint entry is $145 for (4) runs.  Best not to wait if you want to join us at Lakeside for the sprints . Go to the QUEENSLAND RACEWAYS web site and enter .This is the last round of the championship so there will be plenty to see and do.

Mp me if you plan to attend

Hey Aubrey,

That sounds excellent!

Gives us forum non car clubbie types a chance to have a bit of a tour alongside the clubbie types, around the suburbs.

And then we can come out and have a gentle play at Lakeside!!

In our own seperate groups of 15, that we will assume QR will allocate us into!

Well this event is drawing ever closer now and we now have 15 cars for the group entry .That is 13 Z’s and 2 red RX7’s. Should be a interesting challenge. But if you would like to be part of the weekend events you can find details on the ZCCQ website.  So If you think that you could be the only AUSZCAR member there ,you need to think again as all of the events planned for the weekend are being organized by AUSZCAR  QLD members.

The day run on the Saturday  will only cost $2 per person ( told an navigator is not necessary but could help)and we will feed you for that . It may be only a sausage on bread with onions and bacon some sauce, more onions and perhaps an egg  or cheese with more sauce. The display the next day (Sunday) at Lakeside is free and is just a park and talk fest. If you would like lunch that is a cost $35 per head and will be a full BBQ  affair catered for by Queensland Raceways.  To go with the lunch fee is a ½ hour of track time . Now this is a road event under road rules. It is just to give those  an opportunity on a race track  to see what all the hype is about. After that the sprinters will take to the track . If you would like to sprint with us there are still spots available on the day at $145 a car.

Come on all you Z owners, come along and support this event, still need numbers for the Happy Laps to go ahead. I will be running in the sprint event to support the Z Car Club of Q and I don't even own a Z.

 

There has been a lot of time and effort put into organizing this event by several people so please support these people and the club by entering some of the events, but if you can't please come along on the day and show your support.

 

Cheers

Peter

The entry process via QR's website is a touch confusing, i am hearing, especially for those who are not signed up with QR .

The other new one, is their additional $30 fee for entering on the day of the event.

It gets to be a bit pricey for the intersted first timers, bit of a turn off?

That $30 late entry fee has been around for ages Jason, you need to get out more. It's not a good idea to try for a late entry anyway because if they are full you roll up ready to go and then  :'(

I am sorry ,but the ZCCQ can not make the entry procedure for ZCCQ club members or non club member any easier for the sprints. The decision for group entry is by invitation only and only one group. The Happylaps event is open to everyone and entry is by the ZCCQ web site . Which is in a earlier post .But with the dead line for happylaps entries only a few days out and this event with only a 1/3 full ,it will be cancelled. But to try and make more understandable to enter the sprints .Please read the following

 

Entry Procedure

 

Clicking on the Queensland Raceways web site address will take you to the sign in for entry forms. Type in your clubman licence number and pass word.

Don't have a pass word. Click on don't have a pass word and it will take you through licence application or new pass word app.

Then a new pass word will then be emailed to you. If you don't have a Queensland Raceways licence, then click on register here and follow the prompts for licence .

Then you click on calendar and go to sprints.

Go to 23 November and click entry.

If you're one of Paul's fifteen go to group entry, if not standard entry and as of  (01/09/2014) there are 45 places for standard entry. That may increase but that is at QR’s discretion.

Stand entries are as per normal and must be paid to Queensland Raceways

The ZCCQ executive made the decision to cancel the HAPPYLAPS segment of this event  . This is due to lack of interest and cost to the club to run it under minimum numbers required .

Good move Executive.

You will be getting quite a few turn up, based in interest from the spread on Social Media, about this day, and the ability to run their cars at the controlled Laps, as many are a bit daunted by doing outright sprinting.

When these Happy/Breakfast/Display etc type laps are put on and run by QR the,selves at Lakeside, they know, and fully expect, the majority, if not 100% to Pay and Play on the day.

That's just the way Happy Laps works.

The lads at QPDC, DSOA, DuD's and the Qld Datsun club, that this was promoted to, will be like "What the pharque,,,,?"

 

As a club, you keep cancelling these things based on purely monetary issues, as has been done a few times in the past, comes across to the outsiders, as pretty gutless to do things.

 

What is gonna get cancelled at the 2015 Dat Nats, or will you pull the pin on the whole event.

No forward promotion, has got many wondering,,,

 

Now watch, the OAP det260 jump in the high horsey horsey,,,,
