View Full Version : Entering the ///M3 in the Noosa Hill climb.
Well I sent my entry off tonight for the Historic Racing Car Club of Qlds' famous Noosa Hill Climb 12 -14 November 2004. I have entered in the 'Invited' class. Entries close 22 October and then all 'invited' entries are assessed as suitable or not. Although there is no guarantee of being selected, I have spoken in length to the race organisers and they have told me they would like to see the M3 compete as there are a number of Porsches of my cars vintage (1988) that have entered.
This event usually receives good media coverage from here and overseas so I am kind of excited. The M3's first official 'race' so to speak.

It is a bit of a case of "who you know" with Noosa. Worth a shot for certain. I put an entry in for that catergory in the Kilcoy Canter, but the event was cancelled.
Be careful if you are excepted. Pretty hairy bit of road. We ran it last year just before the ARC cars as part of the Coastal Challenge (tarmac rally). Bumpy with loads of concrete barriers. Other than that, you'll have a blast.
Should be up there spectating again this year.

I've been passenger through it (albeit going down hill) for the possum bourne cruise back in the day. good times, but yeah the roads pretty full on. (ie. rough, concrete barriers, all the fulli sik wrx's had trouble bottoming out etc)
Went for a drive up to Noosa today and drove the circuit. It has been neally all re-surfaced and looked great. No rough sections anywhere. Cant wait to see what the ///M3 can do against the other entrants in my class.
No rough sections anywhere.
Now that IS different to last time I drove it. :)

oh wells.. looks like its time for another drive through there!
Went up again today with wife and daughter. This is going to be fun. It seems like a very fast hill climb. Great spectator viewing areas.
Apparently the ///M3 wasnt what they were after. :(
Still, I'll go up and have a look.
Dave, welcome to the nature of these types of events. I thought you might have had a reasonable chance with the M3. Who you know, not what you know.
On a side note, my dad bought an M3 last week. Guess he will be joining the club.
Yeah, was a bit disappointed. Oh well, off to Warwick tomorrow to take out my frustrations.
Cheers to your Dad with the M3. What type?
It's a 11/98 E36 in Dakar yellow.
Dakar is my favourite colour. Nice choice. Let him know that the BMW club meeting is Friday night 12 November at Brisbane BMW @7pm.
Thanks, I'll let him know.
... No rough sections anywhere ...
Take a tighter line then :D
You're still wrong Coyote, its "tightish"! BTW I have it pacenoted now.
Just got back. Was a good weekend and some great cars. Was good to see some timeless classics like a 1995 R33 GtS-t Skyline complete with Autobahn sticker, stock Nissan 300zx, 2001 Audi S3, stock 2004 GT3 Porsche and a couple of 1991 Mazda MX-5's. Is my disappointment of not being accpeted obvious. I think the HRCC needs to re assess the cars it allows to enter so as not to lose its reputation.
My guess is that HRCC members would get entry priority, especially in a discretionary class like Invited.
There were a fair few '70's Zeds from our club members entered, have to see how they went. Seen too many bent hillclimb cars to want to enter myself :)
The 'Z' cars seem to be the most popular. As far as results go, I havent seen them yet. Will post them when I see them on the HRCC website.

How did the Skelta go ?

Here are the results http://www.hrcc.org.au/2004_Noosa/ResultsNoosa2004.pdf
Note that John Siddons in his 240Z came fifth, outright. The Zed, still kicking expensive butt :p
