HSVfest Update-

We are only 2 weeks from entries opening on the Largest HSV/HDT event of all time. Entries will be opening on the 5th February 2018.

We have booked out almost 3 hotels with almost 300 rooms booked for this event, this is turning out to be another massive year. The 3 major clubs attending are again looking at record numbers being the HSV Owners Clubs of ACT, NSW and Victoria, but we are proud to see that the HSV Owners Club of SA has a huge amount of interest and we are expecting a great showing from them, an outstanding effort for a club that is less than a year old.

To date everything is organised,
Friday drive
Friday night meal
Saturday Show and Shine
Saturday Leisurely drive's
Saturday night Dinner
Sunday Track day
Sunday Drag racing
Sunday Motorkhanas
Sunday Dinner
Monday Drive

Costings have come in and the finer details are being finalised, and as every year we are aiming to have NO profit margin for the HSV Owners Clubs and full benefit for HSV Owners Club Members at the lowest cost possible to the members.
For those who wish to come, you do need to be a member of the HSV Owners Club of any of your clubs in the world. This is for a number of reasons, but the major reason is because this event is designed for members of the HSV Owners clubs, by the members of the HSV Owners clubs, Costing is also a driver, noting that this event has a final cost exceeding $30,000 against the HSV Owners Clubs of Victoria, ACT and NSW, it is an expectation that the members are looked after first and foremost, Sponsorship by HSV is a large part as well, as we are the only clubs sanctioned by HSV, and CAMS affiliation, every attending member must be CAMS affiliated. I hope this clears up some of the questions as to why this is only open to HSV Owners Club members, as we are getting non-stop questions as to why people can't enter because they are not a member. People are able to join a HSV Owners club by filling out the application forms located on the clubs websites located at -

ACT - www.hsvownersclub-act.com
NSW - www. hsvclubnsw.com
QLD - www.hsvowners.com.au
WA - www.hsvownersclubofwa.com.au
Victoria - www.hsvownersclub.com.au
SA - www.hsvclubsa.com

Become part of history and join us for this massive event.....

Just got back from this MAGNIFICENT event, 3 days of organized bliss.
The organization behind this event has to be experienced to be believed. All you had to do was log on to HSVFEST, fill in the forms for what you required, events, food, apparel, whatever, it was all there, you just filled in the form, paid the dollars, and when you arrived for the event, everything you signed for was waiting for you.
We picked one of the suggested accomodations, The Siesta, which was very good, good rooms, undercover parking, and a great restaurant/bar.
Opening night I thought was just going to be a sausage in bread etc at a meet & greet, how wrong was I,..soup, casseroles, and plenty of it. Next day, Show 'n Shine & dyno day, or there were a few cruises on the go, then a very good dinner at Thurgoona with transport to & from provided. Sunday was motorsport day, circuits, and sprints, go to whoa etc, plus hamburgers sausages etc all included, followed by another great dinner & trophy presentations at Thurgoona, where as on the previous night, the food was exceptional.
A VERY big thank you to Joe & Pete from Victoria, and all the others from the other states, what a brilliant job all of you guys have done, the "pre" organization was very obvious, everything seemed to go like clockwork.
A lovely weekend for Karen & I, we met some very nice people, saw some great cars, and ate far too much.
If you didn't go, check out HSVOC or HSVFEST pages.
We'll be back next year, Pickles.

Had a great time myself. First time there. Only went as a spectator this year but will give the Sunday driving events a go for sure next year. Some really nicely modified cars from Victoria. Harrop does well in Victoria. Meet alot of people. Sorry we never bumped into each other. But the weekend is just action packed. Booked the motel for next year already. Cheers Anthony.

Had my drone up for his last run then realised I hadnít taken the piece out that locks the gimbal. By the time I got it back and removed it I missed the run.

The W1 belongs to the vice-president of the NSW HSV club. He had it on the dyno on Saturday. Made 376 Rwhp. His not afraid to use it and give it a work. I believe he was doing laps around Bathurst the first weekend he had it delivered. Top pictures and video guys. I'll be definitely giving the track a go next year.

I have uploaded all my photos and videos from HSVFest 2018 to google drive.
at this link.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1g7TEJeuZthx6IEyhU4RN001ha6lnuRzQ

Note: The Show directory also includes photos and videos of the Dyno runs, and some
at the Siesta.

I have previously shared this with participants of the motor sport in private email,
so you don't need to look again - unless you want to see my in-car videos that I only
added last night.

Hawaiian Dave!
