    Default Up coming events

    Hi all
    Last week I bought a 405 mi16 for $400 and i was planning on using it as a track car and have a a bit of fun with it. I want to try and enter as many events as I can and I would be happy if anyone can let me know if there is any events on in the near future. I'm willing to enter just about any event going, as track days, hill climbs, motokanas etc. I live in the center of victoria and happy to travell around victoria.

    Thanks Oatsy

    CAMS calendar can be found here:

    It would be a good idea to get involved with the Kyneton Car Club, great autocross track and motorkhanas etc.
    Have a go on the dirt before you stuff the car up by lowering it, 405s are too low to rally but are great at Autocross. I am replacing the engine in my 205 at the moment, will have it going again for the Bagshot rallysprint at the end of the month and will be doing some autcrosses after that.
    PCCV has an event in the Yarra Valley in two and a half weeks, uphill tests on a grassy slope, untimed, you just need to arrive at the finish line to score max points. Lots of fun and a chance to get to know people.

    Thanks for the calendar. I have only taken the car to one event so far and that was at the last kyneton car club event and had a lot of fun. I wasn't planning on spending any money on the car. I was just going to race it anywhere as often as I can and to tune up my driving skills.

    Thanks Oatsy

    Good, that's the right way to go about it. So many people start to build cars but very few get to compete at the end of it.
    The Mi16 is a great car, no need to do anything to it (except maybe a hydraulic handbrake) in order to compete in club motorsport.

    Yes thats the way to do it, cheap car, drive it flat out.

    When we first joined the car clubs back in the late 70's the late Rob Atkinson sat us all down and explained that there was 2 ways to learn to drive. 1 was buy a good well sorted expensive car and practise and practise and in 20 years you might be a good driver.

    The other was get a cheap car and drive it flat out, drive it like you stole it and 2 things will happen, you'll either become a very good driver very quickly or you'll kill yourself.

    Hence back in those days there were a lot of 16TS powered Dauphine rally cars.
