Sports Car Run

Hi here are a few more images from last Saturday night..

I was really pleased with the event. Weather was great and a total record number of 19 cars participated, a good result in view of the number of regulars who were apologies. Good to see some drivers bought grand kids along for the ride. We will have to try to think of something to foster this kind of thing so that there will be some people interested in preserving these cars into the distant future.

  • PS:
  • More men die of prostate cancer than women die of breast cancer;
  • Each year around 20,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer;
  • Tragically, each year, almost 3,500 will die as a direct result of this disease;
  • Almost double the annual road toll;
  • This is one man every three hours…one a day in South Australia.

 Route maps will be available at the departure point.
