Just a final reminder that this Sunday is the Sprite Clubs Annual Display Day at Wigley Reserve, Glenelg

This the premier event of the Sprite Club’s year where we get the chance to show our cars to the public in the one place so I urge ALL members to get their Spridgets and associate cars ready for this fantastic day.

This year is the 60th anniversary of the Bugeye and the Club will be recognising this on the day. Therefore, we would like to invite all BUGEYE owners to bring their cars along for this display.

There will be People Choice Awards for All Models of Sprites and Midgets, as well as Associate Vehicles.

There will be a Coffee Van on site, as well as food available from local stores and cafes.

Historic Winton 2019 – Message and Update

A message from Gerard Miller

Next historic meeting at Winton the focus will be  The South Australian contingent 

Noel Willcox is hoping a great team of us will attend 

It would be great to get some cars over there that do not usually attend and all of us that do 

We encourage as many as possible to join in and have a Murder of Crow Eaters to entertain the madding crowd 

All the best Gerard

Dates Update

Dear Historic Winton Competitor,

 
I would like to formally advise that the date of the 2019 Historic Winton event has been changed.
 
In recent years, our event has traditionally been the last weekend in May. However, due to the V8 Championship dates being altered next year, our weekend has been bumped!
 
Therefore, our meeting will be held the weekend before, starting from unofficial practice on Friday 17th, and continuing into the weekend of Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May 2019.
 
There will still be great racing, fabulous milestone celebrations, and our ever popular collection of display bikes, cars, caravans, emergency vehicles, trade vendors and plenty of surprises.
 
Many accommodation places have already been contacted, but for the many of you who roll bookings from one year to the next, I suggest you contact your Hotel/ Motel/ B&B and confirm your accommodation booking for 18th & 19th May 2019.
 
Stay tuned for the Media Release in November, when we announce Milestone Celebrations.
 
Regards
 
Peta Lee
Secretary
