Aussie Muscle Cars prepare to Ignite the Island
Publish Date: 14/4/2016
Car enthusiasts from across Australia are strapping themselves in and preparing to hit highways across the nation for the Leukaemia Foundation’s Aussie Muscle Car Run.
This year, for the first time, the event will run across four states – Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia.
With limited spots available, teams are being urged to secure their place in the 2016 Ignite the Island run in November which includes a high octane, red hot itinerary across South Australia and Victoria, including a day on the infamous Phillip Island track.
Rachel Carson, Event Team Leader says driving the full Phillip Island Track is a once in a lifetime experience.
“The Run is a nostalgic event, allowing participants to showcase their iconic cars to the wider community,” said Rachel.
“Many of our drivers have personal connections to blood cancer, while others just enjoy the camaraderie and the opportunity to take their beasts on an amazing road trip. All share the common goal of raising vital money for the work of the Leukaemia Foundation,” she said.
The Aussie Muscle Car Run is in its fifth year and is open to cars manufactured between 1963 and 1977. Replicas are welcome and cars of special interest will also be considered.
The Run will depart Adelaide on Saturday, November 5 and travel through Naracoorte, Mount Gambier, Halls Gap, Melbourne, Phillip Island, Echuca and finish at Renmark on Friday, November 11.
