For as long as this event continues, I've come to realise that every day of every year will be nothing but a countdown to the next MTC. I don't even mind :-D

Good thought Rob.  Track Day Bug is both contagious and addictive. I believe Shaz has already purchased her helmet in anticipation of MTC2016. Good addiction though. Get addicted to track days and motorsport and there is no way that you can afford drugs. (Note to Travis -- transfer some of the whiskey budget to your MTC2016 campaign). 
 
Admin/B24. Maybe we can have a countdown counter on page 1 of this thread that counts down the days remaining till MTC2016. to the event

328 days is no where near enough time to get ready, yet way too long to wait!

I know the feeling! I spent time at the Toymods AGM last night. Great bunch of friendly guys who I would have join us in 2016. They all know about it and there is some intent to come along to see what all the fuss is about. At this stage, there are already a few members who come along but the number could rise(Supra/Celica/Levin). Still, I believe they will be there to check out proceedings and a possible photo session.
Who is interested in coming along to one of their trackdays in 2015? See if we can beat them all! There quickest car does a 9 on slicks(from what I can gather).

Ooooh sounds great. Let me replace my tyres and then I'll come along. Maybe we can aim to do it together and we can get a 1st and 2nd with our mr2s? 😃

I bought a MR2 Australia long sleeve shirt before MTC ( i did wear it on day 1 ) .. ....Unfortunately I thought the printing on it was pretty ordinary and not worth the cost....maybe the mugs and glasses are better?

There is Zazzle as well.  But I think there are cheaper options when it comes to ordering a few dozen of the same shirt in different sizes.  We've had shirts printed previously at church, so I will see if I can find out where they were done.  Unless someone else has contacts of course.

I do all this type of printing. Www.picturezone.com.au or barossa valley framed on facebook to a sample of what can make.

There has been some discussion about a AW class the last few weeks so I decided to discuss it more on the MTC thread. I may also create a thread dedicated to this concept if it goes in the right direction. As I have mentioned in the past, the creation of a MR2 series in Australia has always been in my sights. MTC is the initial step towards this. Establishing a regularity team of MR2 is the next (June anyone??), followed by a established class. There are enough cars out there, but getting everyone together and up to speed is the bigger step. I have established a contact to fill a spot at a motorsport event at Eastern Creek. Just need 20 cars and drivers to make the cut.
 
For the AW class, I'm ok with putting something together but someone else will need to manage it at the meet a I have enough to do during MTC.
Basically it can be loose enough that many cars will not need to go backwards to qualify for the class and not expensive to get into the class. It will not be door to door racing but just a class within the existing constraints of MTC. I would prefer to see people using/fitting at least a half cage/harness/ race suits if not simply for the safety aspect of it. Certainly unregistered cars which are trailered to the event, a cage is certainly preferred.
The basics will be a limited tyre size and tread wear.
1.6ltr with basic mods
Standard 5 speed box
Brake upgrade restrictions. I was thinking no 4 spot brakes, no two piece rotors.
Shocks restricted to one way units.
Springs free
No RCA adjustment.
Minimum ride height
 
I have also been working on another track which is going in the right direction. I have my name down to hire a track to be built for 4 meets a year with one being out aside for a third day for MTC entrants. The track is impressive. More on this as it comes to hand.
 
I have also found a driver trainer who works with the Radical Australia group who is keen to join us in 2016. I spent time with him a few weeks ago. Great guy, clever and good temperament.

How soon can we register/pay for 2016?
I want to secure my spot (I'm getting worried that there won't be enough spots next year with the current in the 2016 event lol)
Maybe early registrations/payers can pick their car number for 2016?
