    How to get there: Take the Melrose Drive exit from the southbound Hume Freeway, turning left and heading south. Turn right into Melbourne Road from the roundabout and continue past McRae HSV which is on your right. Do not turn right into McRae HSV. Do a U Turn at the first roundabout and then turn left into McRae HSV. If a queue develops, keep to the left out of the traffic lane.

    McRea HSV will be holding a BBQ and coffee as previous year, plus are trying to get V8 supercar teams. They are looking at stuff for the kids as well. Like in previous years we will be setting up in clubs, and will be not only competing with each other, but as clubs for the HSV Fest Shield.

    HSVfest Update-

    We are almost at 100 people entered for HSVfest already, with one event coming very close to being full.
    This is by far the largest event in HSV-HDT history and not one to miss, so get your entries in and enjoy the 3 days of fun with other HSV and HDT owners.
    entries can be found at http://hsvclubnsw.com/shop/hsv-fest/hsv-fest-rsvp/
    please remember you must be a CAMS approved HSV owners club member from any state to join in this event. This does not included the fake facebook clubs.

    HSVfest Update-

    Hi all, I would just like to clear up a couple of points that were brought up this weekend by the 100+ phone calls, text messages, and emails about joining HSVfest weekend.

    1. You must be a member of a HSV Owners Club, this does not include the facebook pages, these are not registered motor vehicle clubs though the respective ASIC registration as an organisation, and thus do not have the appropriate insurances, they are also not CAMS affiliated which is mandatory for this event. If the event was opened up to non-members, it would cost the clubs $83 per non-member entry, this is because of the insurance attached to the event, over the full 4 days. Our aim is to keep the event as low cost as possible, and this would be an unacceptable rise in cost to the HSV Owners Club members.

    2. If you don't own a HSV or HDT you will be unable to join this great event. The event is strictly limited to only HSV and pre-1988 HDT cars. This does not include HSVi plated cars, or associate members of the HSV Owners Clubs, your entered car must be plated.

    3. You can't enter on the day, the event will close entries one month before the event date, this is because the event is so large, there are 3 dinners to organise, plus there are 10 events over the weekend to organise. We are catering for well over 200+ entries so please take that into consideration why we need to have it all organised for a month out.

    4. The HSV Owners Clubs of ACT, Victoria and NSW have organised this event for members, by the members, One member from each club is helping organise the event, plus helper under each organiser, there is NO profit from this event, every cent goes back into the event, so no club makes a profit from this, and this is why it is so cheap compared to the Nationals. Last year the 3 clubs were left with $85 after everything was paid, and that money was used for this year in July.

    5. The event is closed to public entry, this means that only entered cars can participate in the events, it doesn't mean that the public can't come and watch or look at the show and shine, the motorsport and the Dyno runs.

    6. At night the cars are secure as they can be, they get locked up over night in the same compound and right out front of your room with security, the only problem is, that if you wish to go for a drive at 2am in the morning, you can't, sorry.

    7. The event is a celebration of the HDT and HSV motor vehicles, a massive party over 3 days, and great fun for all entered. Winning trophies is a side show to the event itself, we do spend big money on the trophies, but getting one is not the aim of the weekend, and to be honest, I believe we could remove the trophies and no one would notice. The chances of a Nationals ever happening again are very low, after Victoria and QLD spent a lot money, it was moved to NSW then ACT, and both couldn't justify the almost $150K price tag that was attached, HSVfest was not designed to replace the Nationals, but it is a great stand in, now if we did keep the Nationals to just members it would lower the cost drastically, but that's not what the Nationals have been in the past or should be in the furture.

    8. You are able to enter as many cars as you like, and it doesn't cost any more. One of our members that owns 12 HDT's and 32 HSV's, if he wishes to bring them all, then go right ahead, and we will laugh while he tries to move them all. We do need to know about every person coming for catering reasons.

    I hope this helps with a lot of the questions I have been getting, and clears the air over what the event is about.
    Please feel free to contact me if you do have questions, I am always more than happy to answer all of them, but these were the most common.

    Blown Clubby, Well said.
    It is indeed a great Event, and not without a lot of work by some dedicated HSVOC Members.

    Thanks Blown Clubby and all those involved with organising everything, its truly a credit to all those involved and to the respective clubs. My family have been for the last 2 years and it has a sensational weekend, I'm really looking forward to this year. I still have my fingers crossed my GTSR will be delivered in time.
