BATHURST 2004 - Stooged!

Gday folks,

well all this talk of PROCAR folding has got me back onto the Bathurst 24hr event that brocked many forum members last november...and well whether or not it will be happening this year.

since there is a large chance that it wont be happening this year, should we consider having our event for the 1000 instead? i know this would mean that we probably wouldnt be staying on the mountain, but I do know of a pretty good place that we could set up Camp 3FB instead, so that probably wouldnt be an issue

so basically this thread has been started to weed out whether or not anything will be happening, throw up some ideas, and generally let people know whether they should be saving or not!

I dont want this 3FB event to die with PROCAR! It was definately the BEST EVENT HELD LAST YEAR so lets improve on that

Greg and I will be dragging many more mexicans up with us this year...hell we might even be able to get enough to bring our own BROCK BUS...

Let the discussion begin...

cheers
dave

Re: BATHURST 2004 - lets start planning!

I'll be there, swag and all. If the galaxy is up and running then i'll bring that along as my tent/bed. Hopefully the galaxy will be ready to get me there this year unlike the i'll fated FJ40 that I couldn't get finished for last year!

Can I make the suggestion that we all chip in in advance and buy one or two massive big shade tents? Or would we be best to plan ahead and bring a large sledge hammer and erect the circus tent (seems more fitting!).

I'll be the first to raise my hand to bring along a 4 burner BBQ and a trayfull of wood. I just hope the weather gods are a little kinder and we don't get bloody saturated like last year.... but thats half the fun isn't it!

Re: BATHURST 2004 - lets start planning!

Count me in, I was already planning for the 24Hr before the whole Procar thingo went down like the Titanic (although there is always the chance she'll sail once more).

I'll certainly be coming, I was already beginning steps to acquire what I could thru work (gotta love signing out stuff for free).

I think DK has issues with the 1000 date though, and it'll be heaps crowded as well compared to the 24Hr, but whatever happens, happens!

Cheers... Tim

Re: BATHURST 2004 - lets start planning!

no real issues from me, but if my sister comes up here to stay for the 1000 then I will have to stay put rather than camp out with you blokes... work will wreak havoc too as i can not get that time off so i'll quite possibly be in a zombie like state all weekend due to a lack of sleep, just nobody let me fall asleep while we are at the race!

Re: BATHURST 2004 - lets start planning!

I'd like to go to this but cannot confirm as yet. Probably will though.

Just wondering, if the 24hr does go ahead, will we still go to that or bugger it and just go to the 1000? I'd personally prefer the 24hr if it was a choice between the 2.

Still, as Dave said in another thread, "It wasn't the racing that made last years event so much fun!" so it'll be good either way!
