In short: the Bellthorpe Range Road section will be for those who have done it before and want to do it again, or those who have heard about it and been dying to do it but just haven't made it up there .. and so, since we're going past, may as we'll drop in ;)

Sounds like a great week end, looking forward to it. Just a suggestion about the meeting place for Saturday, possibly we could use the Chemist Warehouse carpark which is next to the Bunnings carpark but a little quiter in the morning.

Actually, yes I was thinking down that end - and not actually in the actual Bunnings part. Totally agree it is much quieter.

---------------------------

 

It is a closed group (QLD 86 BRZ Owners Club http://www.facebook....RZ.Owners.Club/ and the Brisbane Toyota 86 & Subaru BRZ Cruises page: http://www.facebook....50892218413887/) on Facebook so you do need to be accepted before you will be able to see the event. If you are already a 'member' I'm not sure why you can't see the event. Try again, it might have needed some time to kick in :)

Mike is a bit of a lame duck around these parts - and a bit of a card. Great bloke. (I have to say that. I'm staying at his place that weekend).
Do see my notes about Bellthorpe on the OP. Comments welcome. But yes it is a great road well suited to the 86 :) I think we will run rally style - staggered starts - once we hit the start of that section. I (or another volunteer) will lead quite a way ahead to warn of any oncoming traffic - to help ensure it is more enjoyable.

My MX5 run in August [not same day as you!] WILL include Bellthorpe UP in the final leg to Maleny. Our Chapter Leader did the recce last weekend and said apart from a few little potholes all is good!  I'm probably running up at the weeknd just to blow the cobwebs out of the NB before Lakeside and to get the current fuel load down around 1/2 tank [not good running 'track' on a full tank!!]

 

Looking good for your run Matty!

1st video is a bit poor quality. 2nd one is good, some will love the lotus 7's I'm sure. Found a few other vids on YouTube of various bikes and evos. Those 2 hairpins look awesome!

see my post above Zoe, made at 10.15am today

 

The first was by a mate K86, his first attempt at using his 'Go-Pro' but I found it fine, showed the road but some 'mirroring' off the bonnet [he keeps it well polished!!]

1st video is a bit poor quality.

 

Sorry Hawk...still working through the different settings at the time of recording. It is quite interesting how the footage turned out on Youtube as it is brilliant when played on the laptop. That footage was recorded on settings of 960 25fps. Future footage will be on 1080 30fps. 

 

Will do better next time. Thanks for viewing it.
