Challenge Bathurst 2018

Recommended Posts

The dates or CB this year are 15th to the 18th of November, Super Sprints on the Thursday and Friday and Regularity Saturday and Sunday.


Entries will open in July


 


I have a huge group already planning to compete, i have 45 people who are now starting to pay deposits for Group E (Group Z as we call ourselves) organised by the ZCCQ   8)   8)   8) loads of Z's and ZX's and other great Nissan/Datsuns  8)   8)   8)  so if your not competing save the dates and plan coming out to Bathurst as it is an amazing 4 days. 


 


I have a full group of 55 spots  so that means i have 10 spots left, that i can fill, we have campsites in the Officials and volunteers camping area and cover garages on pit straight for competitors, an some other great sweeteners.


 


Its a totally  awesome event and we are building to a huge 50th anniversary celebration of the 240Z in 2020 with a planned 50 S30's and other Z'x and ZX's and spots for other awesome Datsun/Nissans  you will have need to compete in at least one of the past 2 years or one of the next 2 years to be considered as track experience is vital  


 


PM me if you would like to compete


Cheers


Dave

Hi guys just wondering what requirements do you need to be able to race there?

 

Cheers,

Justin

Car needs to be either road registered or CAMS log booked, have you any official track experience? 99% of us do the Regularity event because we are not fast enough to be serious in the Sprints.

Hi Justin ,

Here is a link to the 2017 Sup Regs it might help your question about requirements, otherwise PM me and i will let you know my email address 

http://www.challengebathurst.com/sites/default/files/cb-2017/CB-17-Supplementary-Regulations-Final-as-6-7-17.pdf 

 

The fastest time you can complete a lap in the Regularity is 2.36:000 we have had a couple of cars (non Z's) in our group go faster than that and have there run black flagged, 

but the fastest Z last year was Jon Siddins 2.37:978 in his Green 240Z and in 2016 I did 2.38:882 in my Gold 240Z

 

Cheers

Dave

Just bumping this,

On the Challenge Bathurst  Facebook page today, entries are now open for the Regularity and the Super Sprint for past competitors, they have said there is already a  waiting list for all those who have not competed before in the event, so it will guaranteed be a sell out this year,  I have a few spots left in Group Z for this years Regularity.

If you want to join us for this totally awesome event please contact me asap  

Cheers

Dave

Hi guys. Do any of the Datsun guys run with slicks , or mostly use r-spec tires?

Mostly R spec Gordo, came in handy last year with the rain. Lee F will likely run slicks on his 370Z sprinter but at the end of the day I guess that it's a personal choice.

Hi Gordo this came up last year on this forum, check out page 2 of the CB17 thread

I run the Hankook Z214's but most of the guy in Z's are running A050's

Below from the sup regs 

2.14 TYRE REGULATIONS
2.14.1 Both Categories:
All tyres must in accordance with Schedule E of the current CAMS Manual of Motor Sport

The same as last year
