 None    Misc

The September meeting saw the club venture back to the base of Mt Coot-tha after a great weekend at the Cootha Classic for the hospitality of City Subaru.

City Subaru is located at the Toowong round about and has a huge range of new and used cars, including the 2016 STi.

After making our way through a lot of Gusto’s Pizza’s and looking around the cars that were on show we sat down for the formalities to begin.

The committee reported that the Club continues to be in great shape with more than 160 financial members – more than we have had in years; and the books and bank balance continues to be strong.

Up coming events include Maximum Attack and the Club run skid pan day.

James Simpson, the Dealer Principle for City Subaru Group covering Toowong, Newstead and Kedron is Queensland’s largest Subaru dealer and has offered Club Members access to capped price servicing and also a great discount on all spares. Log onto the forum for more details.

Subaru also graciously had heaps of prizes on the night including a mobile Car Wash Kit valued at $49.95, a cooler bag and multiple Subaru flags which were happily taken home by Ant, Andrew, Blake and Jess

  • OntheNet's Personal ADSL Turbo plans and Naked DSL plans available in key Gold Coast suburbs, and
  • Personal ADSL plans offered Queensland wide.

ONLY 25 DRIVERS!! Get in and pay early to secure your spot.

To all those who want to drive in the dirt this day is for you. The club has hired the Dirt circuit at IWMAC for a full day of fun. This event has been run previously so some of you have been to the event before. For those of you that haven't it is a great day to see if you are interested in driving on the dirt whilst not being an at all competitive day.

There will be a drivers disclaimer you must agree to and sign to participate.
The drivers & passengers must attend the drivers briefing, sign in and agree to the rules. both drivers and passengers will be given a wrist band that will be supplied once all the above has been undertaken.

Drivers and passengers will be given a wrist band and it must be displayed to starter before entry to the track.

Gates will open at 7.30am with the track opening at around 9am. Lunch and Drinks will be available at the venue.

This is a private event which will result in a lot of fun track time for all involved with the focus on enjoyment.

The track will be prepped the day before by IWMAC, so we should have an excellent surface to run on. That being said, if you have any concerns about the condition of the track or anything else about running on the day, you can withdraw before you start or after the sighting lap, with a full refund, no questions asked

Proceedings of the day
  • 07:30 - Arrive and set up camp. Please feel free to bring seats and marquees

The Basics

  • No timing
  • No more than 3 cars on the track at one time
  • Laps will be starting from a standing start on the starting pad you will be waved on to the track where you will complete 1 standing lap and 4 flying laps (this may be changed throughout the day depending on the general feeling - 5 laps is a good place to start as cars don't get too hot)
  • Dangerous driving will NOT be tolerated and you will be asked to leave
