P.M me if your interested in coming along!
Should be a good day out, so far there are 26 Supra’s signed up so people will be able to get a fair few runs in with no real waiting around.
Shouldmt this be posted on a supra site??
I think it probably was chazzy :lol:
Oh well , never mind, mind you, its a shame we cant do something like it for GTOs.
They do it out in the states, Vauxhalls have a regular gathering and so do Volkswagon. That is just a couple that I know about, I am sure there are more

It would be very good 8) as far as I can remember the only time our cars/members turned out in the big numbers to race was,
when big Dave(DMC) ran his TV events.
No, not kind of TV event Chazzy! Terminal Velocity
It’s also had a good amount of his supercar friends racing at this event too.
I remember it well, but I did video it all day :lol:
Mmm, I just think with a bit of organising, a big meet could be done.
I know its easy for me to say as I dont live a million miles away but it seems all of these big meets all seem to happen at Billing even American muscle cars meet up there and they do zilch to the gallon but saying that, only a couple of weeks ago, there was a massive Corvette meeting at Brampton Race Course (Longpig will confirm that) and I didnt realise that there were that many Corvettes in this country.
The venues are out there, we have the amount of members to make it a really good event, I just think they need shaming into turning up, even the AGM was a pretty poor turn out, it always seems to be the same old faces
Maybe to get the numbers up we should team up with the MLR and the Starion, Colt and FTO owners clubs? Mitsubishi Day?
That would be great if we only had a couple of dozen members but we dont, we are supposed to be one of the bigger clubs and should be able to do our own thing, isnt that what all the club money spent on various equipment is for? But no, we use it twice a year on JAE and JAPFEST. Why cant we do a GTOFEST?
I got to agree with Chazzy B on this one our club is big enough to event a whole day , but i think santa pod aint such a good idea as they would get p****d off clearing up all the oil and broken bits off the track! Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!
Only you would think of that I take it that yours is running ok now??
Ha Ha Chaz
i’m a witty git! yeah its ok but i still got my plans lol. Well time and money i guess but on a serious note i think you made a fair point.
