  1. Got to Bathurst yesterday after a surprisingly good run , We left Brisbane at 05.30 and got to Gosford at about 16.00 we were lucky to get through the fires as the Pacific Highway was cut of the day before, I had one trailer tyre blow just out side Coffs and the Spare i had lasted an 1 hour before it also blew, (lesson update your spare if you are doing a long trip) lucky we got 2 replacements in Kempsey and the whole saga only slowed us by an hour. Yesterday had a great drive through the Pennant Hills area only taking about 10 mins from the M1 to the M2 Nice Drive up and over the Blue Mts 13 degrees with low cloud and light rain. Got to Bathurst about 11.30 and unloaded the red car and went into town for a counter meal. Safe Trip for all those heading up over the next few days and please check the road conditions and fire closures ZCCQ Club member turned up later in the day with his newly restored 300ZX Z31 which he had had only driven 200kms around town in Brisbane before driving to Bathurst, he said the car was great and had no problems See you in Bathurst

  4. Well we have a limited space to be able to do this Friday afternoon photo-shoot, i have got special permission to allow 50 non competition cars (which will have to have a special of display car sticker, gathered and lined up at a certain time ) to be allowed to drive into the inner paddock area (this is a strictly controlled area for the week of CB) at a certain time then through one of the garages into pit lane. this will all be controlled but some of the wonderful Z volunteers Then line up in order, we only have the area from pit lane exit to garage 13 to line up the cars, and with about 300mm to 400mm between each car to fit them in about 110 meters long. So Peter if you miss out well... if your entered into the Festival and you done make the 50 then you will be able to view this awesome line up from the Hell Corner Corporate Suites and even walk down around the cars in pit lane if time allows before the Friday night welcoming party

  7. Hi all here's is another video review from the Nissan Media day https://youtu.be/QAmXRmP-ogY
  8. Thanks for posting ScottyD Yeah thanks she is very original hasn't been on a wet road or had rain fall on she from 19 years I decided to let a few of the guys who's cars weren't going to be used, and we weren't sure if we would a drive around the track, in all the other cars that were there, but fortunately at the lunch break they let us all go out together, the drone shot of us leaving the marshalling area is awesome That's why Paul was in the passenger seat, we were very busy when it all started so it was good to jump out and let some one else have some fun
  9. Just in case anyone forgot just how ugly i was, and btw he didn't have the window wound up https://www.motoring.com.au/nissan-370z-2020-video-review-120158/?fbclid=IwAR0ytEKzApWbkefA4r7kAMzyK4ALSZAzhnT4xrfpauHvhUJiavlnUHtYpEM
  10. I was just there with a couple of Z's, ZCCQ president and another member did all the organising from our side. Nissan Australia did the rest
  11. Here's some video 20190821_110120_Trim first.mp4 20190821_125806.mp4 20190821_125806.mp4 20190821_125806.mp4 20190821_125806.mp4
  12. Hi all just had 2 awesome days at Norwell Motoplex for a media day with Nissan Australia and the release of the 50th Anniversary 370Z and the GTR. The ZCCQ were invited months ago to supply Z cars for the 2 day photo shoot. Tuesday was mostly Motoring Journalists and Wednesday were more web based and forum life style journalists and celebrities. All of the 14 Z's and 1 KPCG10 Skyline meet at the BP at Yatala for a morning coffee then headed down the road to the Motorplex for the park up. The Special 50th Anniversary editions 370Z's 2 x White /red and 2 X Silver /black along with the 50th Anniversary GTR's 2x Blue with white stripes 2 x White with red stripes and 1 x Silver with white stripes turned up later in the morning with the Journalists. From Nissan not only was the CEO of Nissan Australia Stephen Lester there, but also Hiroshi Tamura (Chief Product Specialist - GT-R, and Nismo) along with other Nissan executives all of who were very friendly and interested in the older model Z's and GTR's that were present and all enjoyed driving the cars that were there on offer to drive. On the Tuesday of all the Z's that were asked to attend only 4 Z's were used to take the journalists and Nissan executives around the Motorplex circut and at the lunch break all of the Z's involved were able to do several laps following a media car then allowed several more following a pace car at the allowed 100kmph. I was lucky nought for them to choose my white 72 240Z for the day for the journalists to drive and then used for a late afternoon photo shoot driving around with one of the White/red 50th 370Z's. There should be loads of photos of the day coming out in the next few months and Nissan had a very professional team photographing and filming with drones and land based cameras Wednesday was a similar day but in the morning we were allowed to take either the 370Z or GTR 50th Anniversary cars for a couple of laps. time was limited but at least i got to drive the 370Z which was really fantastic. This time we used one of this forum other members Red Series 1 240Z's for the journalists to drive and for the photo shoots so expect to see some shots of it and the KPCG10 Skyline on social media now All involved were looked after very well by Nissan Australia and the Norwell Motorplex staff a really top 2 days out Day 1 photos below
  13. Yep the ZCCQ is planning something big for the last week of November we are still finalising The Festival of Z to run alongside of Challenge Bathurst. I currently have 48 x Z's competing in Group Z (5 x series 1's) which will compete in the regularity on the Saturday the 30th of November and 1st of December. We are finalising things ATM for a Bathurst Street Festival, Country navigation runs, starting from the Wednesday the 29th of November on. The Friday afternoon pit-lane photo shoot with Group Z and the oldest Z Festival of Z entrants included (should be a great opportunity for some amazing photos) , then a welcoming bbq, in Pitlane with 100+ Z's or in our corporate box above garage 1-4 . Saturday will be the main Z Car show display and judging and a themed party that night again in the corporate box. There are a few people (especially ZCCQ President Paul Clemens) doing a huge amount of work organising the Festival of Z, if your interested in getting the latest updates and entry info please email an EOI to paul.a.clemens@bigpond.com I look after all the competitors from Group Z entered into the Regularity, please if your interested in competing with us and you own a Z please PM me or email me d1770@tpg.com.au I need at least 2 more Z's I hope to see you all at Bathurst in November
