This year marks 30 years since the AW11 Toyota MR2 was first available for sale back in 1984, so the MR2 Club of NSW has decided to host an event and celebrate this milestone for the car and marque that we love!

2014 will also be the 25th anniversary of the SW20 (first launched in 1989) and the 15th anniversary of the ZZW30 (launched in 1999) MR2’s, so it’s a special year no matter which model you own and love!

The activities for the day will start with a cruise, meeting at Maliyawul Street in Lilyfield at 9.30am for a 10am departure. Our convoy of MR2’s will drive over the Anzac and Sydney Harbour bridges, after which we will then head out to Al Palmer Repairs @ Lot 12 Robertson Place, Penrith, where we will have an MR2 Show n Shine from midday.

The event was a huge success for the NSW MR2 Club. We broke our records for the largest turnout to one of our events. I have been told the previous best for a cruise was 24 cars. So 27 cars along for the pre meet cruise was outstanding.

We then had 40 MR2’s at the show location at Al Palmer Repairs in Penrith which overflowed his yard meaning some had to park on the street.

We would like to thank long standing club member and sponsor Al Palmer for his efforts in making yesterday possible. Al generously provided us the use of his yard meaning he closed up early for the day. Al Palmer has been working with Toyota for many years and provides club members with a discount on labour charges.

We would like to congratulate the winners of the show and shine

Simon Zinader – Best Standard AW11
Nick Kokoszka – Best Modified AW11
Steve Goldman – Best Standard SW20
Steve Wei -Best Modified SW20
Paul Cantero – Best Standard ZZW30
Al Palmer – Best Modified ZZW30

And the peoples choice went to Julian Pauncz
