The process of booking your accommodation goes like this:

Email (info@taupodebretts.com) or phone (07 378 8559) Taupo DeBretts and say you are from the Primera Car Club to receive your discount.
Organise your own accommodation; so either get into a cabin with friends or otherwise post up here and find someone in the same situation as you if you are wanting to combine with other members :)



The committee will probably grab a bigger option and everyone can hang out and meet up there :)

not looking forward to the fuel bill though...... :-\
just did 130kms to $40

on another note just got 640kms out of my VE, about 42L of petrol
this makes it pretty much twice as economical as my turbo... but then again the turbo makes about 3 times the power  ::)

I have checked with the track and the the committee has agreed.

PASSENGERS are OK so long as they are attired the same as the driver, ie Helmet, cotton overalls and closed shoes.

So bring your mates everyone! ;D ;D

Ill confirm give me the weekend to sort out finances etc, need to budget some RE002's gas etc, pretty sure i will end up coming.

I will also try convince Faz too and a few others, really wanna see Nick (Moles) car in action!

EDIT: Slightly still on topic, Firestone from tomorrow for 3 weeks are doing the buy 3 get one tyres free promo. Scoring my RE002's for around $188 per Tyre! Good opportunity to get some tyres before the track day guys.

That's a sharp price for RE002's, What size out of interest?

Keep us in the loop 
It would be great if Faz could make it. Need an official event photographer ;) (hint hint Faz!)

Wow that's an awesome price, I think mine (same size) were $225 each when I got them so that's super cheap
