Run in Queens­land

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Maniac -

The

Aussie Mus­cle Car Run con­cept’s ex­pan­sion con­tin­ued with the run­ning of the first Queens­land event in July, a 2125km trek start­ing and end­ing on the Gold Coast after vis­its to War­wick, Roma, Emer­ald, Rock­hamp­ton, Bund­aberg and Te­wantin.

One en­trant who has par­tic­i­pated in all six of the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion’s fundrais­ing ‘Runs’ was Jeff Gil­bert. Jeff joined the in­au­gu­ral Queens­land run as a trib­ute to his wife Bev­erly, who passed away from a blood can­cer just three months after the first run in South Aus­tralia in 2012. His co-driver, Pam Frith, also has a spe­cial rea­son for join­ing the run, after los­ing her mother to leukaemia.

Jeff and Pam hit the road in his sil­ver Gal­la­her trib­ute XR GT Ford Fal­con.

The next Aussie Mus­cle Car Run is the ‘Ig­nit­ing the Is­land’ event that starts and ends in Ade­laide and in­cludes en­try-level com­pe­ti­tion events on the mag­nif­i­cent Phillip Is­land Grand Prix Cir­cuit.
