Datsun Nationals 2019 Hanmer Springs

Postby classicdat » Thu Mar 14, 2019 2:06 pm

This is it! Finally the South Islanders get to host the Northeners for the Nationals, 2019.

After such a great experience for the Southern contingent who made the journey north in 2017, (corrected, thanx Braasy) we are now able to extend hospitality to North Island, and South Island Datsun enthusiasts. Labour Weekend 2019, October 26-28th.

All those arriving in to Christchurch earlier you will be most welcome, and hit up some of the locals for a bed.

The Plan:

Now Friday Oct 25th 2019
6.30pm Meet at the Peg, Main North Road Belfast (Those coming from the North we will start a cruise thread so you can all meet up and cruise down together, so please let us know your plans by posting up in there, maybe someone can take a lead in getting a deal on the ferry and trying to get as many as possible on the same sailing) (Same for those coming from further south, forget Waimate! Come to the Datsun Track day, more seat time, better cars, and some great people to hang with).

Saturday, 8.30am Hanmer Meet up at (TBC) and Cruise to Race track for a Track day, bring your good brakes, tyres and change of undies.
5.00pm Cruise back to Hanmer to meet up for the AGM and Dinner. Simon is investigating accommodation options, but there are plenty of houses for rent and anything from forest huts and cabin in the camping ground to flash resorts. Don't forget your togs for the hot pools.
Evening: party time, TBA.

Sunday Oct 27th
9am Meet up and cruise, check back as details will be added, post up and have your say, we have a couple of ideas forming on how this will look, but may take in the Awesome Hawkswood hill climb, Leader Valley and maybe even the Go Kart track, lets face it 1200s are really just Go Karts anyway.

BBQ Lunch, anyone rocking a 260C, Ute or V8 280zx with a towbar may be hit up to tow the NZDatsun BBQ trailer.

Are people interested in returning to Hanmer for another night? Christchurch? or heading closer to home??

Monday Oct 28th
Breakfast for the hardy, before we get on the road again.

Following 2 weeks, touring the South Island visiting cool people you have met over the weekend and experiencing some of the best roads in the World! Without all the Tourists we experience in the Summer.

So what are you doing sitting there reading this???

Get out in the shed and get that Datsun sorted, this will be an event of Epic proportions, and a track day you will never forget!

If I'm not mistaken, 2017 is when the southern migration occurred ;)

I'm keen as. We had a great time at ohakune, so i didn't have to convince Gen and the kids to come to this.

Now I have 8 months to finish my motor and get it running. Could be right. Haha
