Enzed Cen­tral Mus­cle Cars (CMC) is hon­oured to have been of­fi­cially in­vited to take part in ‘The Great Race’ in 2016, thanks to four years of be­hind-the-scenes work by club pres­i­dent Dr John El­liott. Around 20 ve­hi­cles are ex­pected to make the trip across the Tas­man for the op­por­tu­nity to com­pete against the Aus­tralian Enzed Tour­ing Car Masters class in a non-cham­pi­onship round for each. Apart from the cost of trans­porta­tion, one of the big hur­dles is ac­com­mo­da­tion, and the cost thereof, with track­side camp­ing at the event cost­ing as much as AU$3K a week. An­other ma­jor hur­dle is tim­ing; the ve­hi­cles need to get back from Bathurst in time for the V8 Su­per­cars round at Pukekohe, to be held just a month later. Sadly, this means that CMC prob­a­bly won’t end up with a round at the al­ways-pop­u­lar MG Car Club meet at Man­feild. We’ll bring you more info once progress has been made on trip ar­range­ments; at this stage, a trav­el­ling com­mit­tee is be­ing formed to work out the de­tails.
