Hi everyone,

Just recently joined this site and wondering if anyone is heading to Cromwell in a couple of weeks for the Toyota Festival ? Sounds like it'll be Toyota's as far as the eye can see. Excellent !

Just getting my '87 AE82 GT Liftback up to scratch to attend for the Show n Shine. Bonnet being repainted and original wheels refurbished. Cromwell will turn on the good weather too hopefully !

Wow what a great day on and off the track. Mostly on the track. Its such a beautiful setting at 170kph. Have put a couple of dash cams on youtube. Search ' toyota track day highlands' by 'mr me' . Great fun for a "not a race" day. Got eaten by a black lexus is-f. Damm quick 5L V8 drifting it mad. The stock standard crown held its own, but I was damm cautious not to hit anything, so passing took a wee bit of time. Went over to the gokarts at lunch time and damm near missed the third session.
I will look at posting some pictures. Best show in shine award went to a total original white ae86. Mint condition.
