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.

Totalcar_July2013While work on AC14 is already well underway, the organisers are still quite involved in spreading the word about the event that just finished, to every corner of the world.

See the linked article just released on Totalcar Magazine, a blog-magazine hybrid on the European market, who thought the content provided by us was worthy of publishing. Many thanks for the opportunity and looking forward to seeing entrants from Europe next year, as a result. :-) ))

Weeks after the event we’re still very busy providing content to major car magazines and negotiating the conditions for AC14. The Photos section of our website now has the new gallery uploaded and if you require any further photos, please feel free to contact Auto Art Photography who are happy to assist.

In the meantime did you see, that AC13C got an article in Classic & Sports Car magazine? We are truly grateful for the international attention.

POST EVENT MADNESS

VidClip A week hasn’t even passed since Austraia Classic 2013 Cairns and the feedback is overwhelming. The short summary video was finalised and uploaded to YouTube (click the picture on the left to open the clip in a new tab).We’ll keep uploading further videos including news clips that were featured on tv, the slideshow payed at the Awards Gala dinner and the long version of the event summary soon.

There’s also a high resolution photo library at our Picasa page; please click the screenshot on the left to open the album in a new tab. These pictures can be freely used in the media as well as downloaded by anyone interested. For further photos please contact Auto Art Photography.

In the meantime the news keep popping up everywhere. On the event’s weekend we had a double page feature in the Weekend Post plus the cover of Cars Guide, then articles in the Port Douglas Gazette, the Cairns Post and the current Weekend Post again. The online media is also buzzing (herehere, here, here and here) and the international car mags are just now getting our summaries about the rally.

All this response seems to forecast a very successful rally for 2014 with a preliminary date already set (check the home page) and the continuation of this fairly young tradition of precision/regularity rallies in north Queensland.
