South Cruise 2011

DATE: 27 December 2011

DESCRIPTON: Sadly humms will be leaving us in the New Year. Being this he would like to enjoy some of our brilliant Tassie Roads in his XR6 Turbo ute before he goes. (I couldn't turn down the opportunity for a cruise)

Let's hope we have that small chance in Tassie to have some good weather to make it all that much better!

As XR6 Turbo's seem to be a rare thing here, if you have friends with XR6's or XR8's who would like to join, they're more than welcome. (Please let me know if this is the case)

Please come along, have a great time, enjoy our cars & meet other XR6 Turbo enthusiasts!

MEET: At the end of Pedder Street, New Norfolk (New Norfolk Pool). Departure at 9am.

The car park should be able to accommodate us all, and this would be a great spot for some piccies next to the river.

Please note that at the end of the road is gravel. If you have any concerns, please let me know.

ROUTE: Today I was lucky enough to have awesome weather on a weekend, so I decided to take the Turbo out for a spin down the Peninsula. BRILLIANT! It was amazing coming up over a hills and all you can see is the beaches.

481km approx 6.5 hours

BRING:

  • Sufficient fuel in your tank.
  • CB Radio (Santa maybe bringing me a set for Christmas so I may have a spare)
  • Camera

FUEL: 98 RON can be found at the following;

(I am sure there are others but these are the ones I can think of at the moment.)

  • Shell New Norfolk
  • Caltex New Norfolk
  • United Bridgewater
  • Shell Brighton
  • BP Brighton
  • BP Sorell
  • Shell Sorell
  • Shell Dunalley

RULES:

1. Obey all laws whilst on the cruise; this means no speeding, no overtaking over double lines (no matter how safe you think it may be), etc...

2. There is a designated cruise leader who will lead the way and set the correct pace for all cruise members.

3. Use the Buddy system - always make sure you can see the car behind you. This will give people behind you an indication on where to turn to make sure nobody gets lost.

4. CB Radios - if you don't have one, follow the maps and directions given out. It is highly recommended to have CB as it enhances the enjoyment of the cruise being able to hear about road hazards and join in on the social chatter.

5. Please turn up to the meeting points with a sufficient fuel in your tank and enough time before the departure time.

6. Onus is on the owner/driver to ensure their vehicle is safe to drive on public roads and meets State road traffic authority laws.

7. Please ensure you have a contingency plan if you have a breakdown or unnecessarily delayed. e.g. Roadside Assistance or a mate in another car who is willing to stay with you if necessary.

8. If you wish to post this cruise up on any other social media site e.g. facebook, myspace, twitter - please obtain permission from the Cruise Controller/Mod organising the cruise first.

hey everyone im moving to melbourne on the 30th of jan and have decided to drive down to hobart to meet up with a forum member on the 27th of this month to check out some roads down south before I go. it would be awesome if everyone could come along and join in, could probs even have a bbq for lunch or something?. im not sure if many tassie people use this but if so show some interest and let me know. also if you have friends that might like to come who dont drive xr6t's they can come along just to make up numbers seeing as I highly doubt there will be more than 3 6t's in attendance.

cheers lads/lass's

Ya know if I cud I'd come over again :w00t2:

Goodluck with it - Her XR6 Turbo knows the Gordan Dam road - farrken spectacular. Just make sure you fill up with 98 RON in Hobart and set aside some time for photo opps - when we did it - we didn't have much time for photo opps as it was getting on in the day :thumbsup:

Awesome Michael. I have been looking at some roads. I will post up some options soon, so keep an eye out for them. Let me know if you can find anyone else who would be keen!

Hi Guys, So this is what I was thinking;

Option 1

post-48299-0-15783100-1323676632_thumb.j

(Approx 6.5 Hours & 460ks)

I am currently looking at how easy it is to access 98 RON on the peninsula, and I was thinking we could stop for lunch at Richmond. (Also a great spot for some photos)

Option 2

post-48299-0-20623000-1323676809_thumb.j

(Approx 6 Hours & 390ks)

I am also not to sure on Molesworth Road. It is a very tight road but with some tight twisties, but its easy enough to miss that road.

Option 3

post-48299-0-21300300-1323678484_thumb.j

(Approx 6.5 Hours & 425km)

I may have to look into how easy it would be to get access to 98 RON here too.

Micheal, it would be great if you could get some more Turbos to come along! Keep me posted on the progress.

If anyone has ANY thoughts or suggestions on roads, please post them up!
