Toyota Fest 2021 Hampton Downs Auck. (Now meet at Z Bombay!)

Post by Mr-Paulio »

Alright guys, I'm so keen for this. Last time I went it was great! And my goal was to get the AW V6 Turbo all done ready for this event..... Last year... But anyway!

All bugs ironed out now *knocks on wood....
I plan to stretch her legs on the track, show her off and also maybe event gap some cars MR2's shouldn't normal gap in the drags.

Thinking of making an event of it.
Meet at the Z station (Old Caltex) Bombay off SH1 700am. Park at the back truck stop (still Caltex) as there's more room. Hit the road 7:30am. We will just have a simple cruze down the motorway. Perhaps a back road run on the way home.
Who's keen to meet up and follow me down as a convoy of 2's? :D :D

I'm down.

Already registered for Gymkhana but not the track. Don't think I'll do track this year, we'll see.

Ironically we are about 6? weeks out from this event and currently all I own is a deregged written off MR2. Stay tuned haha.

Well not to be a jerk, but you've done all the hard stuff wiring a gen4 to a SW. Now it's just a swap SW - SW right? 🤷‍♂️

When/where is this happening BTW? I need to stretch the legs on the AW. And, maybe I should show up with some beers and give you shit in person? 🤭😜

Haha nah, you're not being a jerk, I'm just taking the piss.

Bringing the shell up 2nd of Jan. Got a storage unit out in Takanini to store and work on both cars. Then I'll work on the swap from the 3rd onwards. You're welcome to come anytime :)

Will you "be there" at Hampton Downs? Or "be there" with us earlier at BP Drury on the way to Hampton Downs? :wink: :D

Well we might take a vote on that. Not sure who else wants to do the back road run. I'm also happy with a motorway cruise. We might show up a bit early though. :D
