GEROTEK

Post by Jorrie » 24 Jan 2012 21:00

Having picked up some experience and after our recent small but quite successful and very enjoyable :biggrin: outing to SANDWANI I am considering setting up a two day outing to Gerotek which is Armscor's (and to some extent the 'DoD's) Vehicle test terrain. This is a world class test terrain for vehicles, highly sought after, expensive, oft fully booked and is used by Fererri, BWW, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Nissan, et al. It is a highly sought after facility and has a worldwide appeal. The facilities are excellent!!!!!.
This outing would problably include an overnight camp and two days of a vaiety of 4x4 trails :driving: right up to the imppossible :layrubber: plus some professional instruction and a compulsory guide.
The idea is to find a suitable date in Jun/Jul/Aug this year and to invite the Nissan 4x4 Club, some Military and Armscor 4x4 enthusiasts.
This would make it possible for me to arrange a special fee and possibly some interesting rides in special vehicles.
It will cost quite a bit more than Sandwani though, hence the early warning, but you can believe me if I say this one will be very good and exciting and has the potetial to be big, and could include an article in a 4x4 or travel magazine (to be set up).
I do however need a show of hands as to who would be interested. If there is sufficient interest I will commence arrangements, but this one will most probably require a forefeitable deposit up front to secure a booking. The numbers that can be accommodated may be limited. So please let me know quickly. Lets have a show of hands!!!! If I get a good show I will set it up. :feedback: Tell me what you want and I will negotiate as this falls in my domain and list of contacts.

I am planning to meet with Gerotek within the next 10 days.
:salute:

i) Jorrie - SUPER gedagte [vergelyk ook net eers met Nissn Klub of Gerotek nie ook op hulle agenda is nie - dan kan dit een geleentheid word]
ii) anner manne - Jorrie lieg NIE vir julle nie -- daai is regtig 'n baie spesiale geleentheid.

Ek het reeds gekyk, Gerotek is nie op die Nissan 4x4 Klub se kalender nie.

Nico (beast) en Kobus (Herrie) laat my weet wat julle dink asb.

Groete :salute:

Jorrie, miskien moet ons eers 'n datum vastel, dan kan ons beter oordeel wie kan kom.

Ek stel verseker belang!

Nissan het in 2010 die "Z club" soontoe gevat. Ons het die oggend op die "skid pan" gespeel en die middag op die "handling track" rondgejaag - groot pret! Daai plek cater vir alle tipes van motor-entoesiaste! :thumbup:

:oldtimer: Jorrie, kyk net vir n datum wat ons nie alreeds iets aan het nie anders gaan ons naderhand oor ons eie voete val. Gero is nice en ek het al gery, maar sit my op vir die dag sodra jy datum het. Weereens kan jy dit onder die vandaal van die Nissan klub. Dankie solank vir jou tyd in belangstelling, ons het sulke ouens nodig. Miskien kyk ons of ons n lekker ontbyt kan maak en dan ry en dan later die middag so bietjie braai. Almal moet net onthou van Saterdag se outing wat Grant vir ons gereel het. Ons soek daai sterk masjiene wat baie kilowats uitstoot, maar ook die ander om te sien wat werklike kraglewering is. Ons moet se as ons gaan, want die ouens wil voorbery.
