The fourth bi­en­nial Haulin’ the Hume clas­sic truck run takes place on April 8 and we’re tip­ping it will be among the best clas­sic truck events of 2017.

That’s a big call. But with over 250 clas­sic com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles trav­el­ling some of Aus­tralia’s most his­toric stretches of road, and scores of old high­way driv­ers shar­ing tales of yes­ter­year, Haulin’ the Hume will be hard to beat.

Or­gan­ised by Bruce Gunter and a hard-work­ing com­mit­tee, Haulin’ the Hume raises funds for Autism Spec­trum Aus­tralia (As­pect).

The run be­gins at Hawkes­bury Show­grounds, Claren­don, with trucks leav­ing from 6am on Satur­day, April 8. The ve­hi­cles will travel by­passed sec­tions of the old Hume High­way, over Ra­zor­back Moun­tain, and through Pic­ton, Mit­tagong and Ber­rima be­fore stop­ping at Goul­burn Recre­ation Cen­tre for lunch. This will be a great chance to get a close-up look at the old trucks.

The run will con­tinue in the af­ter­noon over the Cul­lerin Range and through Gun­ning to Yass.

Many of the trucks will park in Ga­so­line Al­ley, Yass, for break­fast on Sun­day, April 9.

The event is lim­ited to 300 com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles that must be 30 years or older; en­tries close on Fe­bru­ary 17. Book­ings are es­sen­tial for din­ner at the Yass Sol­diers Me­mo­rial Hall on Satur­day night.
