AFTER the racing last night i'm wanting to go again, but would be better if we hired out the track and had a club day there, i know not all of us are wanting to do this so thought we could open it up for all nissans that way the cost will be cheaper.

so who do we need to get in contact with the suggest this in the club???



Ex:    fastest auto 16.02

Mint Idea.
My clutch wouldnt hold up to it, but I would be keen to come along and watch, even If I still had to pay.

I'm definitely keen for this.. we have spoken about it a number of times before but the lack of interest (or lack of numbers) has meant we have never gone ahead with it (apparently the cost is too much for most)..

If you take a look back at various previous posts, we have spoken about it on probably 4 or 5 ocassions.

I think that in order to make it a serious possibility we need to combine it with other club(s).

If the prices we have quoted before are right I believe it is approx $1500 odd to hire but then it can go up depending on what timing gear you want to use..

Myself - I would be prepared to pay up to like $80 for a day like this cos this is what you end up paying to do a track day at someone like Taupo (if not more by the time you take in to account have to drive there and back).

Certainly a good way for people new to drag racing to introduce themselves to it.. not so much pressure and much more opportunity to get a consistent number of runs..

Even though there is a good chance of the weather not being so good, late autumn (like from now until about end of May) and early spring like (Sept to Oct) are probably the easier times to be able to book the track.

Look forward to some more people confirming they are keen and someone taking the bull by the horns and making it happen.

Well I'd be in for $80-$100 (I'm guessing not much will be happing within a month or two so it should be easier to start saving for a future event)

I'm sick of kickin Mitsi and Subbie butt on the streets!  ;D   (I wish!!!!!)

It should be pretty easy to get numbers I reckon if we get some more car clubs involved

Greg you should ask Champion dragway for some prices and what it would cost for the timing gear etc

I would be keen, $80 - $100 sounds resonable for a good day out.

The Silvia club guys are interested in a drag day too...Perhaps a good way to keep costs down would be a combined SNZ/NZPCC drag day?

i would be interested as well, champion is much further than taupo for me but i would prefer to race up there, plus an all nissan meet sounds very cool !

ok i've emailed them and should hear back tomorrow about prices and what dates are available, so if we can start getting numbers would be good i think if we have about 30 cars it'll be around $60, but will find out
