Every two years at Easter, the Nissan Datsun Nationals 9or whatever the other clubs call it) are held. This year they will be in NSW with the track day at Wakefield Park, and concours at Goulburn.

Concours is sat and track day is Sunday, dinner is Sunday night. Generally the last two concours have had literally hundreds of cars. We've got a good contingent from NDSOC going, plus plenty more from Vic.

My race car won't be ready, but a friend has offered me his car for the track day. At this stage it's the prince- i'm hoping to take my roadster as well.

OK, whilst today wasn't part of the Nationals as such, we headed to Marulan for an open track day before checking in later this arvo.

My ride for the track events- thanks to Pete for letting me turn the wheels in anger on his baby!!! I managed a 47.7 which I was happy with, but not sure how it fares to others who have been there?

Well today was concourse, which had all the cars parked in the main street, which was closed off the for the event. Whilst numbers were down on previous events, there was still plenty to look at.

Couple of nice wagons...

Early Zeds

for me, the car that just looked plain tough and caught my eye was this Zed. Neat, clean, but with just enough stance to make it look tough....

So i've been a bit slack, but you get that sometimes......

Following the concours/show'n'shine was the track day. For many of us, this is why we are here............

The day is at Wakefield park, with the hillclimb and short circuit run in the morning, and long track done in the arvo.

Apart from me, there was only 1 other girl competing and she was in a Micra havin' a ball...... she spun a few sessions but no harm done and off she went.

Image
Image
Image

There's well over 1000 pics from the track day...... :oops:

As mentioned earlier, my Prince wasn't ready for the trip, so took another one up instead.
Image
There was only 1 Prince and 1 roadster, but some really nice original Zeds......... so i was quite chuffed to receive this........
Image

I'll add some more pics in groups soon..........
