    The Amaroo is indeed the smaller tighter circuit, and it's a little underutilized to be honest. Because it's a slower speed track it's not as popular as the North section "Druitt" or even the full circuit "Gardner". I confess I haven't had a chance to drive on it properly yet myself, as an indication of how infrequently it is available for members days, track days etc etc..

    Structurally, as it shares some of the Gardner circuit, it's availability depends on only the North (Druitt) being utilized. Having said that, it is popular with the "handling" car clubs when it's available, MX5, BMW, Southern Sporting, and I feel like there is a Interclub event coming up withe NSW Reno club?

    This Sunday, (11th) the BMW car club have a track day on it, Get in touch with them and see if they have any space left? Most clubs usually do to be honest. The next track day isn't until the 21st April, (perhaps that's the inter club day with the NSW Reno club I'm vaguely remembering), being hosted by the SSCC (Southern Sporting Car Club).

    Actually the MX5 club have it the day after Sunday the 22nd April, they are usually pretty accepting of other marquees. I have seen Rx7's 8's and even Focus within their paddocks on their days.

    Now having said all that, I think going through turn 1 on the north or full circuit the limiter would be pretty rad What diff / gearbox do you have in that thing? Would the limiter (say 7k rpm) be about 170km/h? You probably wouldn't be bouncing of it to much to be honest? Actually you will probably be doing 90-100km/h by the time you exit that final corner. yeah you might hit the limiter just in time to pass the control box I suppose

    Ah right on time. "The Hub" to the rescue. Friday 20th April there appears to be a track day on Amaroo.

    Lets all go to that one!

    #edit, also "The Hub" (NSW Reno Car Club Mag) is great.

    Hi Bowie,

    With all this talk of downdraft Webbers and head mods on 1300s.
    Have you seen what the Argentine R12 racers get up too?
    Reminds me of the original HQ Holden series here.
    I think you would fit right in. But you will need a brighter colour scheme.

    Omg.

    MY PEOPLE!

    Haha that's is crazy. And not wrong, they swap doors as much as our HQ's for sure.

    Well looks like Argentina just made the honeymoon list.

    Oh no I've gone down the youtube auto play rabbit hole.

    https://youtu.be/MRPvKmysL8k?t=5m7s

    There are a bunch of interior shots from these guys / class. It sounds like they all have a "standard" 4sp box in there, well the ratio's sound about the same

    Lets all buy R12's and have a local series

    Oh Skip. to 7m:20 to check out a nice couple of slides.
