The Motorsport Auto Z-Car West Coast Nationals / Z-Bash turns 20 this year, and on Saturday, April 25th, 2015, we'll be announcing a brand new chapter in the life of the show that was born on Saturday, April 20, 1996, and has fueled the whole Z Show craze ever since.
Our original purpose for the event was as a "thank you" to our customers, the best customers in the world. Soon we're going to take that gratitude to a new level! The historic 20 year run of the "Motorsport Auto Z-Car West Coast Nationals" will continue forward with the new name you already know, Z-Bash, which captures the joy of Z-Cars that we share with our customers, and the "blast" it is to gather together to celebrate them. There are many new things we're working on for the future of the show. The announcement of these details will be a major feature of our Z-Bash get-together THIS April. See below!
The Z-Bash Party & Announcement Show, Saturday April 25, 2015!
