Default A Chequered Past - Sat 17th Aug 2019

Hi Everyone,

The club has been invited to take part in the show n shine for "A Chequered Past".
On August 17th the National Museum of Australia will be taking most of the cars held in their working collection to Wakefield Park where they will be both on display, but also driven around the track to showcase their functionality.

This has never happened before and will likely never happen again.

The vehicle list includes:


Brabham BT23A-1 Repco V8, 1967, built and raced by Formula One legend, Jack Brabham
1923 5CV 'Type C' torpedo' Citroen motor car, driven around Australia by Nevill Westwood in 1925
The Sundowner Bean 14hp car, 1925, driven by Francis Birtles on his record-breaking journey from London to Melbourne in 1927
DE 36hp Daimler landaulette, 1948, an extremely rare coach-built vehicle by Hooper and Co. on a Daimler ‘straight eight’ chassis used by Queen Elizabeth II during the 1954 Royal tour.
Model-T Ford truck, 1924–26, used to promote Aeroplane Jelly from 1978 to 1988
A black 1959 Wolseley 1500 saloon sedan with four doors
Australian Government Bentley 'S' Series 3 black saloon motor car used by Sir Robert Menzies
Model 48/215 Holden sedan, 1949, delivered the day before these Holdens were released for sale to the general public.
Holden Calais 2017 V sedan and accessories - manufactured at the GM Holden factory in Elizabeth, South Australia on 13 October 2017, a week prior to the plant's closure on 20 October 2017

I will update you with more information as I receive it, but if you are interested in attending the event, you can probably just keep the date free as it will most likely be an all day thing.

Original Facebook Event:

There will be a slow parade lap session that will happen if you are also interested in that.

Current attendees:
1. Ray
2. Garry
3. Chris
4. Pete B
5. Matt Y
6. Brett

Please add your name if you wish to attend.


Cheers,
Celeste

Hi All, I have now received the rest of the information:


Meet time: 7:15am for a strict 7:30am departure. Show n Shine entry goes from 8:30-9:30am.
Meet place: Watson BP
Cost: $16.91 for show n shine ticket which includes two spectators (driver and one passenger) if you need more spectators tickets you can purchase those separately.
We must purchase these tickets in advance using this link:

https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/a-ch...ts-58403719096

Click "Tickets" and "Individual" and select "Show n Shine".

Vehicles 30yrs and older can also purchase "Vintage Victory - Marshalled display laps" which are $53.84.

I will email all confirmed club members the week before with this information and also present it at the club meeting this week.

Thanks,
Celeste
