I thought it was about time somebody organised this, it's only about six weeks away but hopefully that's enough time for everybody to blow the dust off their Datsuns since the last one. My only registered Datsun runs out of rego on the 20th and to be honest I'm not sure what will be happening after that, so this is the latest weekend that I'll be able to attend in a Datsun. (In saying that, last year I had to take my RX-7 and everybody just followed that all day.)
Here are the details as copied from one of the others:
10:00AM Meeting point at Chirnside Park Kmart Auto Car Park
Maroondah Hwy & Black Springs Rd Chirnside Park 3116
Melways page 37, in F5 and G5
11:30AM Leave first meeting point heading to Buxton via Maroondah Hwy
Quick stop at Maroondah Reservoir/Dam to bunch up and let everyone catch up before we hit the Black Spur as a group.
12:30-1:00PM Arrive at Igloo Roadhouse for the famous Buxton Burgers
2:30PM Head back towards Melbourne (if everyone gets through the burgers by this time)
3:00PM Show and Shine, chit chat and brag, photos and vids at Fernshaw Picnic Grounds car park.
4:00PM (or more if needed) Heading back to Melbourne.
Last year myself and Ryan went back through the Reefton Spur which we decided was far better than the Black Spur, so if anybody feels like doing the run back through there it would be pretty fun.
Apart from the departure time of 11:30AM, all other times are APPROXIMATES
ONLY and may change throughout the day.
There is always Police presence on the Spur and it is notorious for accidents, be sure to take care through it.
This is a cruise and not a race so enjoy it for what it is, a cruise.
Safe driving and enjoy the day.
So who else is up for the run? Post if you're keen and I will add you to the list
