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.
|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 (here, here, 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.
43 cars have completed the challenges of Australia Classic 2013 Cairns, the precision classic car rally that concluded yesterday. The Awards Gala dinner was held at the Shangri-La with competitors, marshals, sponsors and their guests attending.
Together we have raised $1,560 between us at the raffle for Variety – the Children’s Charity with the prizes offered by generous donations. Then the winners of all fifteen “1/100″ challenges were announced and awarded small hourglass trophies; notably both the Ron Vis / Scott Vis and the Andrew Chand / Luke Olholm teams took two stage wins each.
Then we got to the main prizes with car number 32, Les and Dane Forrester taking the 3rd position with 2,231 penalty points driving a Porsche 930 Turbo. Second place went to last year’s winners: car #44 with Andrew Chand and Luke Olholm on board – the Cobra replica has collected 1,926 points. The overall winner team, with 1,772 penalty points, was the Karen and Greg Smith duo in their Ford Falcon XM ute. The complete results can be downloaded by clicking here.
The event was a great success and has enjoyed a considerable growth from last year. The organisers wish to thank all the participants, marshals and sponsoring partners. See you all in a year’s time!
