UPDATE.. Checkout www.suprafest.ca for the forum talk and details about the meet!

Hey guys! Now to announce the event schedule for this year and our hotel reservations are now open!

We have the following planned for this years big meet!

Friday, August 4th:

We will be dynoing at Kinetic Motorsports in Langley during the day and then head out to Mission raceway park to participate at the Street Legal Drags event that night. It goes on from 5pm-11pm
The dyno will begin when Kinetic opens in the morning and end some time in the later afternoon in time to head out to the track! We should plan to arrive in Mission around 5pm. Jermey Norquay AKA turbodrifter on the SF will be handling our dyno session and is working out a very good deal for us (details to come soon).

Saturday, August 5th:

We’re proud to announce a PacNW Nationals and Suprafest first, an all Supra Autocross for this day! The VCMC autocross club will be running this specifically tailored event for us at Boundary Bay Airport near Ladner (just off Hwy 99). Some VCMC members will be on hand to help us run the event and in exchange will be participating when not working. We will be pre-selling spots for this event when registration for the PacNW Suprafest Nationals opens up (very soon). We have to pre sell a certain number of spots in advance in order to guarantee that our costs are covered. If we don’t fill these spots by the last couple weeks we will be forced to open them up to another local Toyota car club so stay tuned and jump in so we can keep it all Supra! Everyone will have fun at this event! We have had many requests for this type of event so time to step in! This will be a very affordable event that everyone regardless of mods and experience can participate in, watch for Seamus AKA Suprafiend’s extra info on the sport of autocross.

Sunday, August 6th:

We will be holding a show and shine, bbq and awards ceremony at a park in the Langley area. More details will be announced soon but this event should run from 9:30am to around 3pm to allow out of towners to get a head start on the trip home.

Hotel Reservations:

We have 20 rooms reserved for us at the swank Hampton Inn in Langley (a member of the Hilton chain). The Hampton is located near 200th St on Highway 10, right next door to the famed Langley Java Hut where hot rods, imports and more hang out on Friday and Sat nights! The Hampton has a little pool and water slide, exercise room (or not) and a really good breakfast included with your room rental. With our group rate, rooms with two queens are $120cdn + tax per night and they have waved the extra person fee for up to 4 people per room. Our group rates are good from August 3rd to 6th if you choose to get in early or stay the night on Sunday, but you can stay for as few days as you like. Our 20 reserved rooms are released on July 4th so get your booking in ASAP. There are smoking and non smoking rooms available, and for and extra $10 single king size bed rooms (limited availability). Check out www.hamptoninnlangley.com for additional details and call 1-866-530-530-6545 or 604-530-6545 to book your room and say you are part of the SUPRAFEST NATIONALS event to receive the group rates.

So you have it folks! You have some details and if any questions you can contact any of the organizers or simply post in this thread.

Thanks
Duane

As promised, here is a little bit of info on the sport of Autocross. First off, what is it? Autocross is the cheapest, least car abusive form of motorports available to race your street car in. You race on a course defined by pylons on a large paved area (an old runway in our case). You run solo, one car at a time and the object is to get the fastest lap time in your class. All the cars are divided into different classes depending on how competitive they are in stock form and what mods have been done to them. Generally all the classes are divided into 2 heats, and everyone in one of those heats races while the people in the other heat work the course. Autocross is an intense test of speed, skill and machine, and a total adrenaline rush. The risks are low (cone scuffs that buff off), the price is right (about the same as going drag racing) and the experience is invaluable.

This autocross is being custom tailored to our needs. Don’t worry about embarrassing yourself out there, this is a learning experience and there will be at least 20 something other Supra owners there trying it for the first time too. There will be a group of VCMC senior drivers running this event for us and when they are not working the course they will be racing with us so you can see how the pros do it, go for rides with them, or get them to go for rides with you and get some pointers. To spice things up a little we’re going to throw in some awards for the fastest drivers in each class but don’t concern your selves about the competition too much, we’re doing this to have fun first and foremost! More info to come soon.

Hampton is saying the group rate is only from 8/4 to 8/6. You should check into it because they may have limited rooms on 8/3 if we are not registered for group rate on that date.

They did the same for me too. This is only done until they run out of rooms and the issue is we need to reserve the block of rooms for thursday too.

true. If people are planning on going they're being quiet about it. So for now it doesn't look like we'll even use all 20 rooms.

Sorry about that guys, its all straightened out. The rate was available from the 3rd to the 6th, but the rooms were only reserved for the 4th to 6th. They are now reserved for the 3rd to the 6th. HOWEVER, July 4th is approaching quickly and could get very hard to get a room after that point.

In typical fashion, everyone is waiting till the last minute to book their rooms so as usual there will be a big rush to grab rooms at the end. This happened with Suprafest last year too. I intentionally set aside more rooms that I figured we'd need so everyone who needs one would get it, but after July 4th we're competing with the general populace for a room.

Sorry, but just learned that unforseen circumstances are resulting in moving this back to Boise, Idaho. Is that still a 20 minute ride? :D :D

Hey, don't tease! Some people might think your serious :p

I can beat that, I live in Mission, the drag strip is 5 minutes from my house (sometimes I regret that lol). It is an hours drive to the autox though, we'll be all over the lower mainland for this weekend.
