Club members Stephen Faulks, Mick McMillan, Nev Scott and Corey Baker will be battling it out in a field of 158 cars (13 of them AWDs) at one of Australia’s premier hill climbs - the 2015 Noosa Hill Climb.

Noosa Car Club put on the event which is held at the picturesque Gyndier Drive in the middle of the Tewantin State Forest on the 7th and 8th November. The 1.5km asphalt road is only open to cars twice a year so it is a great spectacle!

Cars date back as far as a 1936 Ford running a 4L V8 and a 750cc Austin from the same year though to current production cars.

Club members will be fighting for class rights between WRX’s, Evo’s, Skylines, an AWD Sylva and the winner of the Cootha Classic Hill Climb, a beautiful replica Audi Quattro S1.

Racing starts at 8:30 on both Saturday and Sunday and Spectators are able to buy tickets at the gate for:

Adult - Day Pass $15
Adult - Weekend Pass $20
Children – Under 14yrs free

Dirk placed 3rd in race 1, 2nd in races 2 and 3, and then closing out the final race as the winner.
Also 2nd fasted lap of the day and a PB. Congratulation Dirk. A great effort.

Third place on 226 point went to Nathan Schick.
Nathan also stormed through the pack picking up many places in each race placing 4th, 3rd, 1st and 3rd.
A very confident drive and some really good, consistent times.

WRX Club Bowden

20 Oct : 17:20
 None    Misc

We have secured a date for a tour of the Bowden's collection this year. If you missed out last time and are still kicking yourself, then here is your chance. If you were there, then there is no need for a hard sell, you know what I am talking about.

Details are:

When - Sunday 29th of November - approximate start 9am (Buderim)
Cost - $40 pp payable on the day in cash (exact money required)

We will meet at Burpengary BP northbound on Bruce Hwy 8am departure. We will then cruise up the HWY together and meet Dan at the Ettamogah Pub, north bound on the Bruce Hwy at Glass House. Dan will meet us there at 8:50am for a 9am departure. You need to grab a coffee here/toilet stop as this will be the last before the tour starts. This is the last meeting point on the way, as Bowden's have requested that we convoy in to their place following Dan.

If anyone wants to organise any other meet ups North or West, please do so, but make sure you are at the Ettamogah Pub before the 8:50am meeting time. Again this is how Bowden's want it to be done. Also we will need confirmed numbers 5 days at the latest before the event. The event is not restricted to club members, so if you have responsible respectful friends or family who would like to come along please bring them along.

After the tour, we will have a BBQ on site at Bowden's, and likely there will be a bit of a demonstration of Bowden's own awesome car care products.

Date: 26 September 2015
Where: Roadcraft Gympie

On Saturday the 26th of September a bunch of us club members headed to Roadcraft in Gympie to test the skidability of our beloved rexies (or not in some cases!) The weather was fantastic, it stayed nice and sunny all day.

There was a variety of skill levels from the complete novice (that'd be me Jess, I'd only driven our STI once before the day) to the more experienced. The aim of the day was fun and we certainly managed that.

We started off with some basic loops to get the water spread but before we knew it, we were having to dodge cones all over the place. We got through at least four different courses if not more by the end of the day. Each course brought a different type of challenge for all of us and at the end of the day yes there were times and results, but competitive or not it was FUN AS!

Thanks to all who organised the event and kept the day running smooth. Can't wait to attend future events just like this one with the club that's for sure.

Jessica and Nathan Schick.
