  2. Hi all here's is another video review from the Nissan Media day https://youtu.be/QAmXRmP-ogY
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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

  7. 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
  8. 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
