VISITING MELBOURNE: MOTORCLASSICA EXHIBITION

AC goes to MCMotorClassica is Australasia’s premier event for the classic, vintage and veteran motoring movement, attracting the most beautiful and prestigious classic cars from collections around Australia and the World. Admired by more than 21,000 affluent and discerning enthusiasts, this three-day celebration of classic motoring is held at the iconic Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne.

This year MotorClassica is proud to celebrate 100 Years of Maserati, 50 Years of Mustang and the very special 50th anniversary of Donald Campbell’s land speed record at Lake Eyre in Bluebird CN7.

In addition to hundreds of dead-gorgeous cars on display – this year Australia Classic will also be amongst the exhibitors! Find us at booth #153 on the gallery level!

SEPTEMBER 2014

Montage of 2015 Social RunA lot has happened since the Australia Classic social drive back in June this year.

Some amazing cars have turned up, many with familiar faces and some who were new to the usual crew. The overwhelming feedback was that many of you would enjoy such social drives more often and so we may organise another one for October.

If you haven’t seen the photo album yet, please check it out at the Photos page.

We’ve also lodged an application for a grant from Tourism & Events Queensland which may assist in some further media coverage.

The first international entry has also registered for the next rally. Claus Mueller, author of the Classic Motourist blog will arrive from Germany to attend Australia Classic 2015 Cairns.

AC MEET ON SUNDAY, 22 JUNE

20130618_082621
We’ve got splendid news both short and long term! The Cairns Regional Council has decided to contribute to the hosting of Australia Classic 2015 Cairns – thus securing next year’s event. We thought a little celebration should be in order.

Accordingly, we’ll attempt to organise a meet for Sunday, 22 June. We propose to meet sometime in the morning, then go for a drive together, have lunch on the Tablelands, drive back and wind up. There won’t be any timekeeping or tasks, just an informal get-together like any club event. The lunch venue is not yet booked – so please let us know in your comments or emails to info@AustraliaClassic.com.au if you’re free to come along with your AC-eligible car.

Let’s catch up on that Sunday, have a good time and prepare for AC2015!

2014: AUSTRALIA CLASSIC ON HIATUS

We regret to announce that this year Australia Classic will not hold its regularity rally in the Cairns region.

Former participants would be aware that the value provided for the entry fees in the last years has been outstanding – therefore they were quite far from covering the costs of hosting. However, we believed that the entry fees cannot be substantially raised without excluding many of the participants from being able to enter, and this view has been verified by many of our followers on Facebook or the newsletters.

Our attempt to secure council funding in 2013 was unsuccessful, and this year there is still no indication whether we’d get any support from local government despite the promotional value we believe we were able to provide internationally.

Although we received an overwhelming support from former and potential future participants, we made the decision to call off the 2014 Australia Classic rally and we’ll try to focus on stabilising the event’s future to be able to host it in 2015.

Please feel free to comment in any way: emails, Facebook comments, positive and negative – we are listening. We sincerely hope that your enthusiasm and interest will not fade away by then and we could welcome you to the next round in 2015.
