Toyota Nationals - Easter 2016 - Dubbo NSW

Postby MWP » Wed Apr 22, 2015 3:19 am

Next year is the 40th anniversary of the Toyota Nationals.
http://www.toyota-nationals.org.au/

Around easter every year for many years now, we always say something like 'next year we'll make the trip to the Toyota Nationals!'... but we never have.
For the 40th anniversary, we have to go! :D

The Toyota Nationals are held in Dubbo NSW, which is approx .
It's a long drive, and it wont be a cheap trip, so hence why we need to get things organised sooner rather than later.

I dont have too many details as yet, but i've been told people generally start to arrive on Easter Fri, and leave Easter Monday.
For us that probably means leaving on Thursday morning, and getting back on Tuesday night.

The majority of people going to the nationals stay at the .
The Matilda pretty much completely reserves the place for Nationals attendees.
If you want to book a room to stay there, make sure you tell them you are there for the Toyota Nationals, otherwise they might not give you a room!

I'll update this as i get more details about what happens at the Nationals... what events they run, schedules, etc.

[edit]
The Matilda is apparently already around 50% booked out!
There are plenty of other places to stay in the area, but the Matilda is the best place to be.

Its a long drive, so whatever you do take needs to be reliable.
You should get the TA22 reliable though (if its not now?).
They should run a Motorkhana competition like they have previous years... the Crown wouldnt like that too much :P

There was talk at the last meeting about sharing the cost of hiring a truck that could carry at least one car.
That way we would have options if any broke down along the way.

So do you have to run the motorkhana? i what is that interstate show where all the pretty cars go to?

The Celica is by far more reliable as its been proven, but the crown would be a better option for interstate travel for comfort and saving the ears. its just not proven yet.

truck option is interesting

Show and shine and drag racing seems like it'll be better suited for the celica i suppose, but the 4.7s might not like the long drive though... i'll put some thought into it.

pfft. one day. 13hrs. easy. leave at 6. get there at 10, and that's 14hrs to allow for stops to stretch the legs/take photos.
that way don't need thursday off.
drive back monday would be a bitch... maybe that's the 2 dayer, with tuesday off work.

I guess I'm taking a Celica...

Just fill-er-up and she'll be right cobber. lol Do a couple of driving simulations up and down the drive way and then go for it.

If the car drives every day at the moment and there are no outstanding service items required, it should be fine. If you're unsure, give the car to a professional mechanic and they'll be extra picky on the hoist. Perhaps go over the car and tighten bolts and check that everything works (like lights and fans) and other parts are in service (like oil, bushes, rotors, tires, etc). Start from one end and work your way to the other. Work out what spares you can bring and perhaps we could all share the load with tools and consumables so we're not doubling or tripling up on gear.

I'm still uming and arring about what i should take. the Celica is not pleasing to the eye and that alone is making me look at bringing the crown. i'll be happy to check things out and have a good time. but the Celica at full song is tempting...

Well my car needs the suspension sorted out first, Bushes, New shocks, etc... Also need to rebuild the bottom end, Blows blue smoke. If I go I can bring my toolbox, Along with my pea shooter muffler so I don't go mad from the loudness :P

If you brought the crown you can fit more tools and spares in it ;)

i spoke to the misses and just booked a room. i'm committed!

i just need to find out how to enter the event and work out what car to bring. i'm leaning towards the Celica again as everything under the car is new and would (should) make the journey there and back better than the chances of the crown doing so. the crown should but it hasn't been driving much in its life and a huge road trip will only stress the old girl out.

Regarding accommodation, i got the last queen and single room.
