Yeah I'll be going up for the first time, but I heard some outrageous figures for entry... I've already sorted out accomodation but can someone tell me how much it is to spectate for the main events.

Julz (v8racerchic) and I will be there all weekend kids are coming as well, I'll be leaving the Torana at home as it's not ready for any events although i might have to drive it up there as the daily drive (VL) isn't sounding to good lol.

Got back from Shep last night.
I had a great weekend, but have heard mixed reviews from others.
Just curious as to what you guys thought.
Anyway, here are a few pics

It was my first Springnats I enjoyed it anyway but I could tell that it was definately dying in the arse.. bloody authorities. Even that beautiful red LX SS had a canarie by sunday arvo

That HQ is weird ey? It has a showcar interior and boot but the engine is like a drag car. If anyone wants any more photos of Chris' or Stuart's cars (Purple LC/Green LJ), PM me

It was my first springnats and i thought it was a pretty good show. The skidpan is something that not alot of other shows have and the side by side go to whoa was good to watch. Here's a couple of familiar cars... :P

Ok well my first springnats and wow it was good, some drama's for me on the sunday we were packing up and when i was putting the tension on the level riders on the camper van i completely ripped up my lower back muscles, had to go to the hospital it took 3 guys to help me in the car, they put my on vallium so i could make the trip back home. When we got back to the caravan park one of the kids locked the car keys in my girlfriends VX SS and a lock smith couldn't even get into it so we stayed another night went to GMH so they could cut a new key for us to get in and finally we left for the trip home. wow what a weekend, as for me i still can't even walk, the up side the girlfriend got to drive my SS torana home and yes she loved it. In the end all is well.

Steve.
