Take a trip down mem­ory lane

Benalla Ensign - - Motorsport -

On Wednesday, Novem­ber 1, the Aussie Mus­cle Car Run heads to Win­ton as part of its rally from Eastern Creek to Ade­laide.

The day will fea­ture Aus­tralian tour­ing car leg­end Al­lan Mof­fat, as well as tele­vi­sion per­son­al­ity Shane Ja­cob­son.

The tour fea­tures a num­ber of clas­sic cars of by­gone eras: clas­sic Fal­cons, Monaros, To­ranas from the Bathurst era, as well as repli­cas of th­ese ve­hi­cles.

Clas­sic mus­cle cars in Aus­tralian his­tory, such as the Dat­sun 1600, Al­pha Romeo and Corti­nas will all be on the track.

While the own­ers of th­ese in­cred­i­ble pieces of Aus­tralian mo­tor­sport his­tory get the plea­sure of driv­ing th­ese im­mac­u­late ve­hi­cles, the over­all cause is key to the tour.

It is rais­ing money for the leukaemia foun­da­tion.

Blood can­cers are the third big­gest killer in Aus­tralia every year, claim­ing more lives than breast and skin can­cer.

The event has been or­gan­ised by Kevin May since its in­cep­tion.

Kevin pre­vi­ously lost his sis­ter to leukaemia, which mo­ti­vated the cre­ation of the cause.

Un­like many car events, means a race.

Rather, it is an op­por­tu­nity for own­ers of th­ese great ve­hi­cles to en­joy a leisurely drive through four states and ter­ri­to­ries while show­ing off their ve­hi­cles to fel­low col­lec­tors, as well as to the mem­bers of the com­mu­nity, who come out at each stage of the rally.

Mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who want to do­nate to the cause can do so at aussiemus­cle­car­run.com or at the event next Wednesday.
