Ok guys and gals... looks like 14 October is the best date. So now if you would like to give me an idea of your locations in and around Brissie so I know where would be best to meet up. I am also open to suggestions (and bribes - I like Ice Cream :D )...
Show me a great road and I will show you a great car!

I'm in central Brisbane.

A drive to Mt Nebo, stopping for coffee at the cafe would be nice. We could then head to Mt Glorious continuing on to the Wivenhoe Dam lookout and down the other side (along Northbrook Creek Road) joining the Brisbane Valley highway via the Wivenhoe Somerset Rd. Then back to Brisbane via the Ipswich Motorway & Centenary Highways...

...just a thought ;)

There are some nice windy mountain roads mixed in with some highway speed driving on quiet roads.

I'll be driving my 100% Biodiesel-fuelled 120d :)

Yes... the old 'Mt Glorious' circuit 8) Great idea, as one of my fav. short day trips... for those here that are not familiar with the drive, it consists of:

Suburban drive via Ferny Grove towards Samford, then Hill climb with 'switchbacks' and great, tight bends to Mt Nebo/Mt Glorious, Beautiful view at top with stunning 'ridge-top' sweeping corners and straights amongst sub-Tropical Rainforest setting (trees over road, cool temps - perfect 'sunroof open and windows down' driving), descend towards Lake Wivenhoe (or what is left of it) to find one of the best 'cruising' roads following the valley (popular for Motorcycles for very reason). Fantastic cruising roads (100km/h speed limit) Sth towards BNE-Esk hwy. Then back to Bne as per nitramluap.

Really nice Cafe's along the way up the Mtns, scenic lookouts, visit Wivenhoe Dam, Good 'all round' road trip to stretch your 1er's legs :) Time frame would be approx 3-4hrs taking it easy and stopping a few times (although I have done it much faster :P )

We could meet at Mc Donalds Car Park on Milton Rd (next to Suncorp Stadium), as there is plenty of parking, undercover if raining.

N.B. if it is raining, the Mt Glorious drive is still spectacular - just a little slower :wink:

Still open for other ideas though...

Hey guys received my car about a week ago, just read the planned route sounds awesome. The date sounds good as well, will be good to see some fellow members in person and their cars for real.

Since it is a Sunday morning... not too early :) Maybe around 11am? Depends though, as some may have family or things to do on their Sunday, so we can make the meet earlier or a little later if need be.
Show me a great road and I will show you a great car!
