Thumbs up Easternats 2008

Hey guys,

Who's going?

Who's thinking about it?

I'm thinking of going if my car is run-in and tuned.
Sounds like a blast!!! held at Sandown

The YT boys will be there in all thier glory!

A good strong suppot of L67s would be awesome! Have all the L67s parked next to each other when we aren't tearing up the race track.

The entry cost is a bloody ripoff.. You can pay about as much and go to the Summer Nats which is way better.

yeh 200 isn't it? but if that includes you and a mate it will only cost ya 100 each between a mate and yourself, for 3 days of tearin up sandown considering how close it is, 10 mins for me then compared to SummerNats in ACT plus accomodation and whatever. Don't get me wrong SumerNats is one kick arse event but for 200 bucks I can definately justifygoin to Easternats. I will be there, depending on the prognosis of my trans

Easternats can blow it out there ass, jammed it all into 2 days now, reduced track cruising to make it a better "spectator" friendly event!, they havnt got my support this year

Sandowns just a bad place to have this type of event I think. I'm close to it too (about 15 mins) but I think it should be held somewhere further out of Melb so you can go camping over that 3 days and then the cost to spectate won't be as high as it costs to compete in some shows!

Its a really mad event if you have entered your car, but I could see how its not the most spectator friendly event - not that I have been a spectator there.

But having said that, arent most of the driving events on pit straight right next to all the spectators?

I think the cruising goes for longer on the saturday from looking at the program, goes till 2.30 on the first day if im reading it right?

Still, i reckon the 2 days is to save on cost and make more money.

No need to be near a show car mate. I have a VS stato, clean but nowhere near a show car. Only got steelies on it and a dual 2.5 exhaust. I only do the cruise, so I just go to hook it round some corners and fang around. Good fun. Have done it 3 years in a row coming upto my 4th.

You may get some tools lookin at ya coz they have a mad car with sparkley paint, 22's, and also probably about 60g's of debt and they look at your car and shake their head. But hey who gives a s*%t mate, get out there and have some fun!

price goes up, amount of days shortened, not a large quantity of quality cars anymore the weekend before calder had a new event on i think, which possibly took alot of entrants away from entering easternats I believe. 1st time in the past 4 or 5 years ive been that i was dissapointed. sad to say its a shame. lets hope it will get back to its peak again and not drop further each year, would hate to see an event with such great potential to go away.
