Most of the teams that competed in 2017 will be back in 2018 to try and stop the MX-5 Club from repeating the success of 2017 where the two RPM Chapter teams (Blue Mountains Mazda and Panorama Mountain Men) took out first and second place. The event is run over two days with Easter Saturday being devoted to practice and Easter Sunday being the event. Entries for this event open on Tuesday 8 August and teams are currently being organised.
