NDSOC is participating in the Morwell hill-climb on the 7th of November. They are 'tagging' along with MSCA and wish to invite all the Zed owners from here. It is a 'sprint' event on a closed section of a road (ie. bit like Mt. Dandenong tourist Road, but with ripple-strips, more run-off and even tyre walls placed for safety).

You can sign-up and compete, or you can just go to watch as it makes for pretty good spectating and the HDSOC will hold a BBQ lunch. A lot of people go to spectate as it is a nice drive and makes for good viewing.

If you guys are interested then register your interest through NDSOC:

so anyone going to this event? Sound like it's not a bad idea to take a brake before my exam on the 9th...

Does it still require Helmet etc?

Closed road sprinting - this sounds like a lot fo fun.
I wonder if they have anything similar in Sydney?

KY, you should join the NSCC if you're looking at doing more events. The guys are starting to get into motorsport in a bigger way, and I spent last weekend marshalling at a WRX / AROCA / HSV / SSCC supersprint on the weekend.

That and you can come to some of the Dawn Runs etc. :D

I'll be competing at the Huntley Hillclimb next month as well, which is down at Dapto. The NSCC guys who went down last time said it was great fun.

There's also a Wakefield Park hillclimb next month too, which I'm also considering.

I'm pretty sure this event falls under CAMS and therefore guessing that it requires the 'usual' safety equipment. Though, send an e-mail to NDSOC ([email protected]) and ask as I'm only quesing.

It requires Helmet plus all Cams safety requirements and of course a LS2 cams licence.

Hey DavidM,
Thanks for the advice on the fire extinguisher. Found one at bunnings that is CAMS approved for $33. I had a go at doing the mounting bracket myself. Cost me another $4. It's pretty simple but secure. Does the bracket have to pass some engineering test? Is there somewhere or someone I can get to check it before the event day just to make sure it's ok?

Attached pic. Looks a bit rough but It was late. Will pretty it up later.

Daniel, which spot is that? Under Driver seat? Front or rear end of the seats?

I was thinking of putting one myself too.

Cheers

I'll have my Ford econobox Falcon back this weekend and will use this for most of my commuting to work. This will mean less time in the Z, so I think i'll join NSCC so that my time in the Z will be mostly "fun time", participating in their events.

How do I join - go to the website I presume?

Good stuff LK ... that bracket is not bad at all, and also a lot cheaper than mine. Mine cost me $150 fitted, and they said then that if anyone else wants one made that it'll be around $100 now that they have done mine (ie. know what's involved).

It's pretty simple but secure. Does the bracket have to pass some engineering test?

The rule says "Extinguisher needs to be securely fitted within reach iof the driver" so as long as it is secure, and within reach, then you don't have a problem and are ready for the track.

Just make sure that you move the seat forward before you get your car scruteneered so that the scruteneer(s) have easy accessto it. They will not check the bracket, but will look over the extinguisher (ie. whether it's filled, within exipery date, and appropriate).

ps. Here's a pic of mine one:

Much prettier than the one I made. I guess I can't expect much from a shelf bracket, hacksaw and big-ass hammer. I like how yours bends down. I still have plans to do this with mine because the seat just touches in the last cm or two when moving it back. Another project for another day.

From the scrutineering description I should well be ok.
