    Default Toymods March Event - Cruise to Catalina Park. Saturday March 11

    When:
    Saturday March 11, meeting at 9.30am for 10am departure
    Meet Point:
    Caltex servo M4 Eastern creek westbound
    Destination:
    Katoomba, Catalina Park and a Pub for lunch
    What to Bring:
    Full tank of fuel, Cash for lunch, walking shoes, a hat and a sense of nostalgia
    Map:
    https://www.google.com.au/maps/dir/C...!2d-33.7156347



    We will meet up at the servo so everyone has a chance to fuel up before we head out and up the mountains via the Great Western Hwy.

    Depending on what time we arrive we'll stop for some lunch at a nice kid/family friendly pub in Katoomba and then head down to the race course.
    We will park near the Aquatic Center in Catalina Avenue and should be able to walk around the circuit which is just over 2ks, given none of us will be in a hurry after a nice big feed this will take us an hr or so.

    Catalina Race Track Info - A 1.3 mile circuit in New South Wales whose construction was started in 1954, but didn't officially open until 1960, and closed in 1969



    These guys did an Article on Catalina which is not a bad read http://www.vsccwa.com.au/cms/uploads...ept-Page09.pdf

    And if Program covers for Race meets is your thing check this out ! - http://www.progcovers.com/motor/catalina.html
