I was just wondering, what kind of things there are in the sydney area for tarmac stuff. Like Hillclimbs and auto x. Anything from newcastle to bankstown and out to eastern creek is fine really.
I heard there was a hillclimb on or near the old pac at gosford?
also what do you need car wise, is there any inspections? mainly worried about surge tank that i havnt got round to making a cover for yet.
or is a club that will do all this kinda stuff that i should join?
If you're in Sydney, there's a bunch of car clubs, but these guys do a lot of very different stuff. And their calendar is usually pretty darn full...
I don't think theres much in the way of hillclimbs actually IN Sydney. They hold them at Bathurst now and then, and I think up Newy way. Theres a hillclimb track at Wakefield (not that much of a hill though).
For motorkhana, they are held fairly regularly out at Oran Park and Eastern Creek skidpans. Occasional dirt ones too at Ansell Park near Richmond.
www.cams.com.au for a list of NSW CAMS_affiliated clubs.

There is a hillclimb north of newcastle held by the MG car club (newcastle centre ) on the 19th of this month. This saturday 911th) there is a tar motorkhana held at the sandgate fruit markets. Motorkhana has come and try licences avaliable. Package for n00bs like yourself is fiddy bucks including entry and licence for the motorkhana. (not sure if they have all been snaffled tho.)
Hillclimb, need cams L2S licence and club membership. On the car require a fire extinguisher (Less than 6 years old, <3 is better, some clubs interpret the rules differently here, MGCC seems to like <3 w/o rollcage, <6 for all else) secondary return spring on throttle, blue triangle to indicate battery, ankle to wrist to throat cotton clothing and a helmet meeting as1698.
motorkhana = sensible clothing (sandals/double pluggers = bad) and generally good nick car. (not spewing fluids, tight syuspension components, eg tie rod ends)
that's all that comes to mind, can't think of anything else off hand :)

Second Nafe's Call
CAMS has a good list of club's in NSW, visit the clubs websites and have a look at their coming events.
If your willing to travel a little more there seems to be plenty of Hillclimbs about the place on their calanders.
Don't know how serious you want to get into it CussCuss, but there is even a NSW Hillclimb Championship.
The Wollongong Club seems to be very active in Hillclimbs, and their local surrounding areas would make the trip down south very much worth it.
I'd assume they would be the club who stages the Bulli Pass Hillclimb.
I've only just started looking into this myself as a replacement for the slow dying Karting Scene.

I've heard about that but never much. Pretty interested though, are they a regular fixture?
Edit: just went and had a look, seems they are on every month or two...mmm tar

You answered your own question (saves me time :)) but on 3-4 times a year. You would already have an L2S being a dorifto boy I'd guess, so regular entry for such an event would be 30 bucks or so, maybe 25 (not sure tho) certainly worth a look if you are nearby. If ya wanna run, event starts at 10, just rock up by 8:30 or so and enter, and get scruted... I'll be having a run in the so-called "noisy" 02 :p
Huntley is the Wollongong hillclimb course. I did Fairbairn in Queenbeyan with Duttons and with the SDMA a few weeks before and it's excellent too, very fast for a hillclimb. The Bathurst one is run later in the year I believe by the Bathurst Light Sporting Car Club. I wish the Wollongong club would do a Bulli Pass one and a Macquarie Pass one though - they'd be excellent fun!!
