On the 29th and 30th of October, Skylines Australia hosted their first track day/show and shine weekend which is set to be an on going annual event. SAU received support from sponsors:
- Import Monster

Skyline enthusiasts of all ages young and old from all over Australia attended the track day.
The award ceremony was held at the Goulburn Hotel where the SAU members had a chance to win the turbo back X-Force exhaust system.There was an impressive turnout and SAU had booked out the function room on the upper floor of the GV Hotel. At around 9:00pm the DJ stopped the music as it was time for the X-Force exhaust give away.
The ticket “Red A 3″ was called and there was absolute silence. Everyone checked their ticket before looking around for the lucky winner.From the crowd emerged Dee (SAU member Deesil) holding the winning ticket and sporting a giant smile on her face.Every one cheered and patted Dee on the back congratulating her. The voucher was handed over and the celebrations continued well into the night.
Skylines Australia Nationals Show n Shine Appealed to everyone with a variety of daily street machines, complete customs, one off unique imports and of course the old school classics were all present. Show bags containing Xforce stickers handed out to the first 100 people through the gates.
Whilst walking amongst the crowd we over heard a few enthusiasts discussing their exhaust systems and we overheard SAU member JPCR- 33 had an X-Force oval exhaust and hi flow cat on his R33 GTST so we set up a display next to his car. JPCR had said he noticed the X-Force exhaust had much better flow properties than the stock muffler, he also commented that it made a good note while not being overly loud.
A big thanks to all the organizers for all the effort put into the weekend, the Competitors for an entertaining track day, The Skyline enthusiasts for representing the car scene in such a good manner.
