Muscle cars to cross four states in 2017

Publish Date: 9/2/2017

Preparations for the sixth annual Aussie Muscle Car Run are underway with plans to travel through four states in the seven day adventure.

Departing from Eastern Creek in Sydney, the AMCR teams will spend seven days travelling 1910 kilometres across NSW, into the ACT, over to Victoria and then on to Adelaide, taking in scenery and special experiences along the way.

Simon Matthias, Leukaemia Foundation General Manager SA/NT said this year’s event would provide registrants with a great mix of muscle car cruising, history, and motorsport.

The event involves teams of two in cars from the golden era of Bathurst – between 1963 and 1977 on a leisure car cruise through some of the country’s most iconic scenery.

Each year the run includes key stops and fun filled motorsport events at some of Australia’s best known race ways. Last year the event visited Phillip Island and teams have also hit the Bathurst track in previous years.

“We are really looking forward to the run again in 2017 - there’s something for everyone in this year’s event. The Aussie Muscle Car Run has become a popular key campaign on the Foundation’s fundraising calendar and has now raised $2 million,” he said.

“The people who take part are some of the greatest groups of people you’ll ever meet, all with a shared passion for these hot cars and for raising money for a great cause.”
