(SA) Cruise 27th October

Hey all,

For our next cruise i propose we head up to Collingrove for some HillClimb action.

Held by the Sporting Car Club of Australia at the Collingrove HillClimb Track on the 27th October 2002 (Collingrove is just outside the town of Angaston in the Barossa Valley).

If you've never been to a hillclimb, its a great day. You get to see some great cars fanging it up a big hill, some classic, some modern, some home made jobs too!

Meet at Hungry Jacks car park (corner Nth East Rd and Golden Grove Rd) @ 10:00 AM.

Leave @ 10:30 AM - yes an early start, but they start at around 9:00 AM from memory!

Some good roads getting there - which should be quite quiet at that time of the morning!

There is an entry fee for spectators ($10 per car I think), however if we can get enough interested parties the SCC maybe able to give us a discount - I have emailed them, will let you know.

Firstly though, please show your interest in this thread.

Also, if we are good, we may be able to drive the track in a break of racing!

If people wanna crusie up as a group, show your interest now, otherwise i won't organise anything. Im going up to Collingrove anyway, so either way.

For those of you who havent been up there before, i highly reccomend it. Its an excellent drive through Chain Of Ponds, and part of the Barossa. Nice smooth roads, quick corners, slow corners, fast bits, slow bits, and my personal favourite...no bloody traffic lights! Just a nice blast through through the hills!

Some excellent news...

The Sporting Car Club will be able discount the entry price for us for being part of a car club. Entry is now half price @ $5.
(it is advised we arrive as a group)

Also, we have been given the go ahead to have a couple of laps of the track. They will be driven at a slowed pace in a formation type parade lap and will be driven during the lunch break (the main break of racing). Naturally of course, the number of laps will be limited and is subject to time permitting.

And...Im currently in negotiation with The Sporting Car Club we may be able to have some secure car parking away from the main parking lot. The car parks are reasonably secure anyway but all our cars will be grouped together and there will be no fear of any dings or dents that occasionally occur in such situations...of course...that still doesn’t protect you from other cruisers though! Basically though, if you wish to bring your immaculate GT (or whatever) and are afraid of leaving it in car park all day...you have no need to fear

More Details later...
