    What a blast that must have been! Bathurst looks like like a fantastic venue! Makes me long for the days of Westwood in Vancouver, nothing like Bathurst of course but a challenging circuit.Hope you had a great time!

    Yes that is me in the clip.

    Bathurst is Australia's most challenging race circuit. Normally it is a public road. Every year in October a 100km event is held for V8 supercars. Few events are held at the circiut each year and the opportunity for club level competitors is very limited. My mate Peter also eneterd his Z and was the motivator to do the event. It was an 8000 kilometer round trip from Perth.
    The circuit is so good it was really worth the effort. Peter has written an account that can be acessed on our Zclub website via the link below.

    Just to chime in, Chris meant to say that the event run in October is 1000 kilometres or approximately 620 miles long and is THE event on the annual Australian motorsport calendar. The track has a significant variation in elevation and is over 6 kilometres long - see wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathurst_1000.

    Chris and Peter are both to be congratulated for both the quality of preparation and presentation of their fine vehicles and for the commitment and planning they have to participating in this event at what must be a leading contender for the Mecca of Australian Motorsport venues.

    Well done guys.

    Nice clip Chris - gives some indication of the length of the track and the variation in altitude. The audio track gives a nice sound from your car.

    Good stuff.

    Regards
    Dave
