A fantastic Nationals weekend plus the 6 day tour.
It was my first trip there and I found Tasmania amazing, with about 2300 kms clocked up around the twistiest roads I have ever seen.
Imagine a couple of hundred 'Black Spur' roads end to end, or a few dozen 'Great Ocean Roads' one after the other.
Imagine also not seeing another car for a half an hour while you are driving them - how good can it get lol?
 
Baskerville was a very interesting track and we all had a ball.
One of our NA Sdubs put in an incredible 200 kms on the day (90 odd laps) so you can get an idea of how much he enjoyed it, especially since he also had to drive it all the way back to Queensland lol.
I'm sure there will be a lot of pics posted when people get a chance.
 
Here is a pic of the 'Show and Shine' in Hobart on the Saturday.
I didn't count the numbers, but several Tas cars were also displayed, with perhaps about 30 MR2's all together.
The '90 model red Sdub in the foreground won first prize for being completely stock with zero mods - unusual these days.

The event was brilliant. It was a car-enthusiast's dream holiday. Tasmania has so many twisty mountain roads with scenic views of mountains, water and trees. The event made you experience the all aspects of owning a sports car with the cruise through country roads, show n shine and the track day - along with a bunch of nice people with the same interests.
 
I have attended 2007, 2011 and this 2013 MR2 Nationals, and it's just getting better and better. I am already looking forward to the next MR2 Nationals in 2015.
 
I also recommend Tasmania as a holiday destination. There's so much history and heritage in that place.

Huge Thanks to all those who attended the MR2 Nationals 2013 in Hobart, Tasmania.
 
5 made the trip from Queensland, 2 from NSW, 2 from ACT and 6 from Victoria met 5 Tassy entrants to make for one FANTASTIC event.  5 other Tassy MR2 owners joined us at various stage of the event and along the way we met another 4 who either stopped to chat or tooted as they passed.
 
A full report will be printed in the VIC MR2 newsletter "MR2 Track Record".
 
Bring on the MR2 Nationals 2015 ....... an announcement will be made soon on the date and location ..... watch this space!!!!  CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!

On the Monday of the Nationals, the open to the public day at Baskerville turned out to be mostly for MR2's, and we just about had the track to ourselves making it a great Club event
Baskerville track is set in a valley surrounded by hills and although a similar length to Winton, it is not flat but has uphill sections the IMO makes it more interesting and challenging, including a blind corner over the skyline and a long straight finishing downhill to a sharp left-hander.
I personally had a ball there along with all the others, so if you ever get to Hobart check it out.
 
Here are a couple of pics taken there on the day by Anthony. I'm sure he won't mind me putting them up.

Here are some more of Anthony's pics from Baskerville.
 
From the first pic you can see what some of the track is like with some tight sections.
Interesting driving technique in the second pic lol.

Congratulations for the organization of the event. I personally had a great time meeting and greeting with everyone over the few days. Great people and great times. Dinner was quite a laugh, the car show was really good but the driving was best. Had my first experience in a road registered MR2 driven on country roads. I want one! Driving Baskerville has always been on my bucket list and was a privilege to do so in Pat's Rally car. Really enjoyed helping Pat set the car up so it was handling nicely again and taking a few people out for some 'spirited' laps of Baskerville. No doubt this car will do a 1.04 or better on some new tyres.
Here are a few pic's from the Nationals.
