Car racing greats make comeback!

Tuesday, 10 May 2016


For the first time in years some of Australia’s well-known Bathurst racing greats will hit the track again, all for a good cause.

Although many would relish the opportunity to see the likes of Peter Brock, Allan Moffat and John Goss return to the road, it is the famous cars they drove during the glory days of Bathurst in the 60’s and 70’s, that will return.

The Leukaemia Foundation’s Aussie Muscle Car Run will see legendary Aussie muscle cars such as the Monaro, Falcon GT, Torana and Mustang take participants on a 2,125km sweep of Queensland.

Held from 31 July to 6 August, it is the first time the event will take place in Queensland after several successful events in other states.

The unique fundraising event gives owners of Aussie muscle cars made between 1963 and 1977, including replicas, to showcase their legendary vehicles with the community.

“We invite car clubs and owners to sign up for this iconic motoring event that celebrates an era of the most outstanding vehicle competition in the world,” said Cassandra Creed, Leukaemia Foundation’s Director of Community Fundraising

“With places limited, it is an event that cannot be missed by any Aussie Muscle Car enthusiast that yearns for the glory days of Bathurst.”

Registration includes accommodation, daily breakfast and dinner, motor sport events, car livery, overnight security for the vehicles, support mechanics, entertainment and more.

The money raised from the event will help fund life-saving blood cancer research and provide support for families impacted by blood cancer.

There are also places open for ‘special interest’ and modern muscle cars to participate, as determined by the event organisers.

The Leukaemia Foundation receives no direct government support and relies on the generosity of the community to help patients beat their blood cancer.
