Last weekend, Sydney Motorsport Park played host to the Nulon Nationals show and shine meet. After 3 consecutive days of rain in Sydney, the forecast was clear for Saturday. But when is the forecast ever right? With some of Sydney’s premiere car clubs in town, with hours spent on washing and detailing the night before, fingers were crossed for good weather.
As the clubs rolled in, so did the people. Corvette owners club, HSV owners club, rarest rose and tuned were just a few of the clubs making the trip out to showcase some of their best representatives.
First stop, HSV. This club prides themselves on their powerful and luxurious rides. Modern electronics and systems make these cars a pleasure to drive.
But in the car community enough is never enough. “it’s illegal, it has to be unstrapped for rego next week.” – Anonymous owner.
Next rolled in the corvette club, boasting a variety of cars, new and old, fast and well… not quite as fast, both an automotive marvel in their own rights.
I liked this event because it was open to any makes and models, its easy to get caught up in the politics of specific meets. So it’s nice to be able to go to a meet and admire cars from all over the world, like this BMW 2002.
The “700kw” R35 sporting its best in show trophy. As the meet came to a close, and prizes were collected, I headed over to the wetpan to check out the action of round 1 of the Nulon nationals season. This round of racing was motorkhanna. Expect our coverage later in the week!
A weekend of typical Sydney rain put the wet into “wetpan”.
Overall, despite some threatening weather, the Nulon Show and Shine attracted a solid crowd of owners. The diversity of vehicles on display was a nice treat!
