You will need: A car and a helmet…
Car should be up to warrant of fitness standard. The main things that will be checked is secure battery, seat and no loose shit in cabin.
Spectators are free and the more the merrier, come hardpark and talk some smack.
We didn’t think it could be done. But BWARP SSS on 21/07/2012 was BIGGER and it was BETTER than the first one.
The rain stayed away and other than a bit of water we put on the pad (and myself) to assist the guys that had too much traction (read: MX5’s and a certain yellow corona)
We were also graced with a congregation of grey hairs that had converged on Hampton Downs motorsport park in their campervans…. They were having a blast watching the open wheelers track testing early in the morning and then checking us out tearing it up !!!

I can only extend my thanks once again to EVERYONE that attended in particular all those that helped out and saved me running all over the place picking up cones (with my broken body) The best skid day yet and we can’t wait to bring you the September Slide Session YFYLJ !!!!
Jaymee showed up a bit late to the meet last night in his DB8R Integra. Recently laid out on D2 suspension, and some 15×8 +0 wheels, it looked fair tough as it rolled in.
Here’s another late post with a few pics.
Churs for coming out brother, car look saaaweeeeet.
Another Casual catch up meet for some dessert and coffee at Dennys in Porirua.
As usual, yarns were had.
Here’s some pics yo.
Here’s Gemmas JDMYOLO IST. Standard height, standard wheels, standard sweet glowy box in the interior (changes colours even) it makes an ideal daily for a teacher.
This Accord owned and driven (hard) by Naomi has STILL not been cleaned. Clearly a regular target for birdshit
Steely Dan came out. Steelies on the front, BR wheels on the back.
Nathan and Joff arrived after going for a quick paddock bash in the new daily BMW.
Bwarp old-timer Harley, came along, in his immaculate Cressida of course. This car still excites me everytime i see it.
Then a bunch of ruffian minitruckers of the WTF
variety turned up.
Nick working it for the camera. hot damn
And now – my favourite car of the whole meet – Blake’s Suzuki Alto. In immactulate condition, he keeps it in tip top shape, and has recently touched up a few panels himself with a spray gun. All for getting in there with a bit of DIY. Small gutless cars are my shit so this thing ticked all boxes for me.
The girls then got a bit frisky, so we decided to pack up our shit, and drive into the evening.
Cheers for the yarns, boys n girls. Good times.
Friday night I was out until 2.30am having a drink or two with a workmate so when 6.30am rolled around and a team of asian builders decided to start work on the section beside my place….many swear words were sworn !!!
I was then resigned to the fact that 4 hours sleep was all I was getting that night.
Check my phone and there is a txt from my good friend Christian who recently purchased an e46 m3 BMW.
“still keen to do lunch today? either that or theres a bimmersport meet on at Cornwall park we could go to”
I had clean forgotten about lunch with him but either option sounded better than going ice skating with a girlfriend…..So Bimmersport meet it is !!
Now I’ll be blunt, I’m a hater of all cars european….I respect them for various aspects but who would ever want to work on one ?? yuk…. But any exuse for a bit of sausage we made our way to Cornwell park.
Was a bit quiet to begin with but more cars turned up and everyone was friendly and happy so was a sweet vibe.
(this e30 estate is my favourite nom nom nom, choice doggie too – Luke)
Sausages and banter were had and there was some bloody clean cars there, my particular favourite being the e30 coupe pictured below….. very clean, sweet fitment and ride height.
The scrape marks on this 3 series rear wheel arch are caused by THE WHEEL touching the outside of the gaurd !!! Thats what happens when you fit 7 series wheels .
All in all a sweet day out with a good bunch of dudes, I was rather jaded so didnt have much to say but was good to meet those I did….your all a little bit too far into your beemers (in an eccentric mad scientist kinda way !! ) but a bunch of GC’s that love there cars so it’s all love from me.
For info on your beemer or to talk beemer smack…
