Summernats Sunday
7th January 2007

An early wet start to the day, with the Torries very lively to drive on the wet roads, as we went to the departure point at the Colonial Hotel in Watson. Pat was on official duty so had been and gone before the rest of the clan had even arrived. The good news was, that although overcast all day, the rain didn’t return. In a way the early rain was good in keeping the dust down throughout the day.

Gerry, Craig, Ian and Mark (Bateman’s Bay) were the next to arrive, with the others following in dribs and drabs. Gary; Gary W, Anita & kids; and Jon as well as another car from the ACT/Qbn Torana Club joined us for the day. We also had four cars from the Riverina Torana Club join us, including Denise, Lincoln, & Tyrone; and Mark (didn’t get the other names, too tired from car prep & other Christmas Holiday chores). All in all, there were about 15 Toranas on display. The day was fairly low key, probably from members having a hectic night the night before.

There was quite a turnout for the day, with a total of 144 cars on display from all car clubs affiliated with the Council of ACT Motor Clubs, 242 adults and 32 kids accompanied the cars.

Throughout the day we did various trips from our base to the various displays and exhibits, including trips to the burnout track which featured among other things an A1 (World Series Formula 1) car, the Castrol Edge drag car, a Blitz truck with a jet engine, and a jet engine powered motorbike.

All in all a relaxing day in cooler than expected, but nice, conditions.
