I was down in Canberra like a month ago, Drove the 34 down and stayed the night with the mrs, Went to the zoo etc. I drove my car around a fair bit on Friday night and not once saw another modified car, Would probably explain why i was getting dirty looks everywhere lol. Like Gecho said your probably best to come up to Sydney for events etc.

Used to be some meets on at the museum on Friday.
That was back in 2010 though.

Go out to wakefield and have a chat, nearly something always happens every day or once a month that is JDM related..

dont they also hold some hill sprints monthly or something close to ACT?

There aren't any JDMST events in the ACT, but there are weekly NS meets, and if you want something a bit more broad minded, a more general meet is held most Fridays in Braddon or Woden. Its a lot more active in the summer months, most people wont go out on a Friday night in winter. Motorsport wise there is precious little, there are hill climbs and skidpan / motorkhana style events out at Queanbeyan, or Wakefield Park is a little over an hours drive from the city. There's also a few show n shine events every year, both Marques in the Park and the Wheels show which welcome a variety of cars and are held ~ 6 months apart, and a few sound/audio events which usually incorporate a mini show n shine and a dyno comp.

There are other more 'underground' street racing / drifting and those sorts of groups around, but I wont go into that. If you were to go to an event and ask someone they might invite you along.

The scene is good at parts just need to know people few of us meet at 7/11 in the city most Friday nights and they are heaps of nice Nissan and evo, the braddon crew and cotter people are shit box commies mostly
