More entertainment to be confirmed !!!


If you are looking to enter this years event, you need to email us at snowymountains1000@hotmail.com as an entry EOI so we can send out regulations a few weeks before entries in mid April.
 
I'm going again this year, probably in the RS6.

There have been some hot Audis entered in the past - including a supercharged RS4 and Stage 3 S3. Would be good to meet some OzAudi members this year.
 
Lets hope they give some of the newbies to the event a chance and not fill the event with cars from previous years :)

I have always wanted to know what 500rwkw will do from a standing start over 1000m. I know I can crack 140mph over 400 metres, but 1000????????????

I have my transport sorted, just need an entry :)

Also, where do we find entrant rules? I am interested to know what field my car would be competing in and what the competition is like in that field

If Adam hasn't already replied, shoot me a PM with your email address and I'll send you the 2014 regs, which I assume will be similar.

How are you making your power? The 6 cyl Forced field is ruled by the GTRs and Supras, the V8 forced by Corvettes, a Celica and the crazy Jeep. If you're not breaking 300kph in those classes you're miles off the pace, and most of those cars run closer to 1000hp at the fly.

4 cyl Forced is Golf R / S3 these days. Much easier pickings in the NA classes but of course much harder to make big numbers without boost.

For what it's worth my Gallardo makes only 550 flywheel horses for a 128mph trap at the quarter. I ran 22.04s at 245kph at Cooma in 2013.
 
I make minced meat of Superlegerra's on low boost :)

Its a turbo six. I don't expect to win but I am very interested to know just how quick it will go. Biggest decision will be to run the 4.9's or the 4.11's in the diff. The 4.9s's are what pushes the car to 140mph down the 1/4, I just wonder if it will be too short???? I also need to know what wheel/tyre combo I can use as the 4.9's are dependant on a set of ET Streets which are taller than the Volks I normally run

Got a bit to think about.

I'm guessing R34 GT-R?

Run the taller gearing if you've got the power for it - most of the quick 1000m cars don't seem to hit stride until 4th gear well after the 400m mark. There's hotmix for 100m or so but the rest of the strip is bumpy tarmac and a few loose stones - I reckon low gearing will be wasted struggling for traction in the first half of the run.

Tyre specs are one of the few restrictions at the event- I'm not familiar with drag tyres but the regs did have a list of what's OK and what's not in terms of them. I'll email you the 2014 regs tonight.

The Gallardo (and indeed anything stock) is well out of it's depth at Cooma - I was lucky to scrape into the first page of results.
 
S14 200SX actually. We put an RB26 in it many many moons ago. She is far from stock and does really well for a 2WD. Third gear is where the party starts and it makes me giggle all the time seeing the speedo move like a tacho in second gear lol

I knew there was something that was going to stop me pretty quickly last year..... a CAMS licence :( I hope they aren't too expensive as this is the one and only place i will ever use it

Got your email, thanks :)
 
So if i were to enter my TT, i'd get my own class for 5 cylinder? 8, 6, 4 all covered... but no 5's.
 
Well, that certainly increases the odd's of wining something... Mind deleting your post so no other 5 cylinder owners in Audi's realise? :p

What class would a 5pot get put in if there are no other entries?
 
you need I think its 3 cars to enter for the class to be run so you would definitely get something if that's all that entered

Correct

The class depends on modifications and capacity

Maybe you and I should just battle it out Jester... :mrgreen:
 
:D Hell yes! All we need is one more 5 pot - maybe Mike?? We've all got mods... so we could build our own class! AFAIK, all intercooler, exhaust and tune/turbo related mods... We're all bound to get a prize! Just keep the DSG cars away.
 
AASA License is a lot easier... and cheaper

... or you could just get a pilots licence. This plane was wheels down on the approach when the pilot must have twigged that cars were on the runway coming at him. This was the 2014 Cooma. Not much detail as the photo had to be resized.

Yes, that was fun

We had a NOTAM up for 6 months stating the airport was closed for aircraft on the Saturday, and an updated one a week before stating the airport was closed on the Friday as well.
 
We have sent confirmation emails out to all those that have emailed us


The next part of the entry process is that we will email the event Supplementary Regulation and Catergory Descriptions a few weeks before entry. The actual day and time of entry will be included in this email.
- We will have 140 entries available on our entry list.
- Entry priority will be initially given to previous entrants of the Snowy Mountains 1000. They must however enter within a 12hr period. After this, entries will be opened to all others that have emailed us.


We would also highly recommend that if you have any other friends, family, workmates etc that wish to enter, that you encourage them to email us within the next 6 weeks.
 
If I don't have a CAMS or AASA licence can I still enter and supply the details at a later date?
