ACT All Japanese Car Show – 9 May 2015

Post by Sqz » Thu May 07, 2015 3:25 pm

I grabbed this from AusRotary as a 'Heads Up!'


The All Japanese Car and Bike show is happening!

SATURDAY MAY 9, starting at 10am, in the carpark of Geoscience Australia, Jerrabomberra Avenue, Symonston.

This is a HUGE carpark with lots of room for everyone. Each car will park over two spaces, so there won't be any door-clashing problems, and there will be heaps of room for people to more around. Note that the GA building will be closed. We are investigating the cost of providing food/drink and sanitation facilities. If anyone has hookups, let us know.

Who is actually organising this thing?
The Rotary Enthusiasts of the ACT Inc. (REACT) is the organising club. ... 69b#p34667
Who can bring a car/bike?
As REACT is a CAMS affiliated club, only members of REACT or other CAMS affiliated clubs are eligible to enter. However, you will be able to buy a single-day membership of REACT in the day for a small amount, so in practice, anyone with an eligible vehicle can attend.

Is my car/bike eligible?
If your car/bike was made in Japan, or is the same as a car/bike that was made in Japan (r31 skyline, holden gemini), you're eligible. Note that this is really a show for enthusiasts, and that stock mazda 121s, and anything that could be a pickup truck may well be sent to a far corner.

Quote Buzz:
Entry fee for a car is $5.
Spectators free.
Plenty of space, nice quiet sheltered area, just off the Monaro Highway for people who might be travelling a distance or used to going to the ski fields.

Neil Bates automotive will be displaying a collection of their cars, the BRZ/GT86 people are keen, MX5 folk are up for it, the Celica Club may be bringing a bbq, and so far the local rotor guys are a little guarded(after all, it always depends on whose car actually starts that morning) but otherwise seem into it. Datsun folk are hoping their cars haven't rusted away by then, the Subaru boys seem keen to all show up together, the Skyline people are still trying to work out if the R32 is actually the best but might come along and argue it in public. The ACT Council of Motor Clubs will have a tent and so too will the Vintage Jap motorbike guys. Hopefully some of the Vintage motorcross guys might come, but they are usually out having too much fun to be bothered with standing still for too long.
