10th of September 2011 - Taupo - MEGAMEET 2011 & Trackday

Recommended Posts

Id do it still! I tracked my slow 2.0L M20 and was by far the most fun i have had in it. Even if i was being passed left and right still better than watching from the sideline!

Might consider it closer to the time then!

The electric tape/plastic bag/zip ties got me home :D

Remember there was one hose left on the engine before it was picked up? That was the same one that blew, easy fix this time round :P

didnt want to risk breaking the volvo last year so i marshalled. If you dont want to get out on the track, come along an marshal. can be a bit lonely (we only had one or two at each station), but by far and away the best seat in the house for most of the corners, and if you take a couple of mates out it would be mint!

but ill hopefully be out on the track this year. will be maiden voyage for me too probably

Haha 2 of my mates were out on a marshalling post last years track day, 1 slept for about 2 hours out there.

Was the best fun I had in my m50 e30. Would defo come if I still had it, very worthwhile!

Sounds good, and no disrespect intended :)

Just wasn't sure.

Makes sense to get two days racing out of a weekend to Taupo.

Someone should update the thread title and first post to reflect the date etc........

It's a shame you have to fish through the various regions events to find things like this as this trackday really caters for the whole North Island.

Almost need a national meets/trackdays separate forum.
