No we need to bring someone different over. Dont get it wrong we all love Victor Bray and Brett Stevens but we have seen them too many times. We need to get some new blood. For what it takes to get those big names over we could get 10 other well know cars over for a less price. I reckon everyone should get behind this event and make it happen. If Tasmania dont hurry up and get something going we are just going to make Tassie a Holiday State. We need people like Les Adams to get events like this happening. Theres not many people here that know how to organize a event over here. He is the experienced one. Let him do his stuff. Lets all get behind this.

This is what les adams had to say on his Sprignats forum.

People have been asking if we would ever consider Tasmania for a Autofest/Springnats style event so we have decided to do some work and over the last four months and many meetings this could be happening.So far we have had a positive response from the ones that count so hopefully Tasmania your wishes may just come true.

This would be great for Tasmania if this goes ahead. Its just what we need. And there would be some awsome cars brought over from the mainland for the event. I reckon everyone should go onto Les Adams forum and support it. Put a post on there and show him that we are keen. If anyone dont know who Les Adams is he is the guy that runs Springnats.

Well absolutley every one that ive talked to about this is willing to jump behind it. Without a problem at all.
Not only would a mainland cars presents help but also the suport of the local rides aswell.

Im sure any one in the state that has a passion for cars will jump behind it and no doubt want to showcase there own cars aswell, and from what ive seen, there is a LOT of nice cars worth showcasing over every field of the car genre. tuners, muscle, european's, ricers :P every one is catered for and that would make a great event anywhere in australia, makes it better that its here in tas tho :D

end rant :P

cheers, mik.

PROXT - Agree totally with what your saying, was just using victor as an example of how everyone comes out towatch when a big name comes over. Tassie definately needs something like this and I know someone like Les Adams could make it work.

Tasmanian Tourism has got back to us with Positive responses,We gave them our requirements and they have so far looking at 4 possible sites in and around Hobart that would be suitable for our style of event.
We will keep you all informed as we try to move forward on bringing you guys and girls a event that you all can call your own.

Les did you check out this thread http://www.gmh-toran...opic=18826&st=0 there's a sample of the Torana talent available down here in there. I am pretty sure a couple of the ones I put up are still owned by the same people (the hatch definately is) so if there is plenty of notice as to when this is going ahead I may be able to convince them to drag them out of the semi retired state they are in.

Glad to see Tourism Tas is looking supportive. So was I wrong to assume this event would need to be held at a drag track if you are looking at sites in Hobart?

My dream is to one day own a hatch but the prices and not wanting to part with the LH means it doesn't look like happening.

The hatch in the black and white pic I posted was super street winner in Tassie in 2000/2001 and for those here in Tassie you might have seen a glimpse of it on the dragway add doing a burnout. Haven't seen it about in a few years but it was a way nice car.
