The GroupA racing Supra from the 1989 and 1990 GroupA series will be appearing at the Toyota Nationals held in Dubbo annually. It’s held over the Easter weekend and is a fun packed event. Show and Shine on Saturday, Motorkhana on Sunday.
For anyone that can make, I’d suggest and recommend you go, it’s a great weekend now with the Group A Supra.
Check out the official Toyota Nationals page here: http://www.toyota-nationals.org.au/index.html
I would HIGHLY recommend you try book at the Matilda Motor Inn, 231 Darling St, Dubbo if you do plan on going as most of the entrants will be there and it’s a great atmosphere.
As part of the rebuild, we noticed the OS Giken triple clutch plate needed some work.
While the engine and gearbox are out this is easy to fix, just costly.
Anyhow, the refresh kit has been ordered.
Once the clutch is restored the engine will be installed, minus the loom and ECU which is due to be replaced.
Photos to follow of the new clutch assembly and hopefully of the engine actually fitted.
I don’t know how many of you know this, but, my car is hidden away in the registry here.
Those looking for decals for the TurboA doors, get in quick.
Prestige Motorsport have listed a turboA for auction.
It was listed to auction at 0:00 today, so it might be sold already.
The good news is there are still a few coming through!
More info can be found on the prestige motor sport webpage;
For those that havent already seen it, here is Adams turboA on youtube. It’s a very fine example, very well looked after.
As part of my rebuild I’ll be respraying my turboA. Got these to apply after the job is done…
This photo popped up the other day of the John Smith Toyota Australia race team.
I dont have this model in my collection… not sure I want it either…
Pretty sexy, hey? o.0
A friend of mine linked me to this;

While it may look good at first glimpse, note the chassis plate of ‘JZA’ so the car is not even a MA70 (let alone the turboA).
Then compare to the actual piece and you’ll notice more differences;
Beware and dont say I didnt warn you!
