This Sunday 6th of April, Toyota Motor Corporation Australia will be holding their annual family fun day at the Toyota Manufacturing Complex in Altona, and TCCA will be hosting a car show, and display motorkhana in the front car park. This is a wonderful chance for members and invited guests to come together with those working at Australia’s last remaining vehicle manufacturing facility, and enjoy a day admiring classic vehicles, and an introduction to motorsport in Victoria.
The day will start at 9.00am, and run until 2.00pm, with plenty of family friendly activities to be enjoyed. A tour of the plant is available for those who wish to check out the goings on of a modern manufacturing facility, as well as an appearance of a very exclusive supercar in the display area. Plenty more will be happening on the day, so come on down with your Toyota or Lexus badges cars, and enjoy a day at Toyota.
Round 2 of the Victorian Motorkhana Championship is to be held on this Sunday 30th of March at the Toyota Car Club’s own grounds on McGraths Road in Werribee. Come down to watch, or even participate in a day of dirt autotest with drivers battling the clock to achieve the fastest times around each of the 12 tests.
If you are coming down to take a look, and want to get a bit closer to the action, we are needing the help of members to give us a hand with official timing. You get to be the only other person out on the test apart from the driver, and you will get to clearly see the designated courses being tackled by each driver.
For more information, you can find the event entry forms under the motorsport entry forms tab above, or leave a message via email on the contacts us page, and we’ll forward more information to you.
Corolla Cup dates have been announced for 2014.
First round will be on Sunday 13th of July at Phillip Island Raceway. It is a round hosted my the Marquee Sports Car Club, and as always entry forms will be available under the Motorsports Entry Forms tab when entries are opened in coming months.
The second round of the series will take place at the Cup Day Sprint at Sandown Raceway, hosted by Ford Four Car Club. Being that almost all the corollas entering will be in the same class, it means that we can all be on the track at the same time. Look out!
Coffee,Cars and Donuts, our monthly social get together for members and visitors, will be held at the Hungry Jacks carpark in Cranbourne on Sunday the 23rd of March. Come along with your car, and TCCA will provide the donuts for you to eat while checking out some of the classic machinery on display. Plenty of coffee shops will be open in the general area, so make sure you grab a coffee big enough to dunk the free donuts! The day starts at 8.30am, and usually lasts to around 11.00am or so.
Hope to see you all there.
