Classic sports car cruise Saturday 18 November

To add a little interest to proceedings would all Sprite club members attending the classic sports car cruise on this Saturday evening please make a note of the participating car they find most appealing. Please let me know your choice upon arrival at our destination at Fulham shopping center as we have a small trophy to present to the driver with the most votes.

Does attendee have a spare seat in a sports car as my anticipated ride has dipped out and I do not think the constabulary would take kindly to me using my racing sports cars. Pat Miller 0421289706

CLASSIC SPORTS CAR CRUISE November 18th

Members of the Sprite club of SA are arranging a sports car cruise around Adelaide on the evening of November 18th similar to the cruises run by Grant Zipple for American cars. The cruise is informal, low key, sort, sharp and won’t take a lot of time. It is simply a chance to enjoy classic sports cars, provide opportunity for a chin wag, and generally check out the scene. We welcome any classic sports car drivers to join in.

We intend to gather in the vicinity of K mart Firle Plaza on Glynburn Road from 6:30pm departing at 7:30pm, driving on Magil rd turning onto Fullarton rd, negotiating the Victoria roundabout onto Wakefield st through the center of Adelaide, West trce, then driving along the Anzac highway turning on to Tapleys Hill rd. arriving in the vicinity of Target Fulham Gardens, corner of Tapleys Hill road and Valetta road Fulham Gardens 8:30 pm ish for a final gathering.

As a courtesy SAPOL will be advised of our activity. Driving standards should reflect the utmost respect for safety and our road rules.

As would be expected everyone joining us take part entirely at their own risk and are responsible for the roadworthiness of their vehicle.

Further info on the evening, contact Pat Miller 0421 289 706 email nanmiller@adam.com.au While we would prefer the cruise to be for cars that are genuine classic cars or replicas of classics and of course clubman type cars we do not wish to be too fussy.

The object of the exercise is 1: To have fun. 2: Create an awareness of our cars and maybe generate a little potential long term demand for them. 3 Hopefully promote Adelaide as the go to place for tourists who like cars.

Weather if the weather bureau predicts a temperature for the day over 36 deg C or a greater than 20% chance of 5mm or more rain, the cruise will be postponed to a later date.

Regards
Pat Miller.

All British Day 2018

Dear All British Day Entrant,

I am pleased to report that many entrants have utilized our new on-line registration facility. As a result, entry numbers are looking promising compared to this time last year. So, if you are one of the many entrants that are all signed up and entered thank you. You can go back to preparing your vehicle. And we look forward to seeing you at Echunga for All British Day 2018. However, if you have not entered or you know of a fellow British vehicle owner who has not entered yet please read on.

We have fielded correspondence from some past entrants asking when they may expect their entry form by email for ABD 2018. The answer is you will not, we only emailed past entrants last year as a last resort, as our new website was not finished. The new website has been operational since 1/10/2017.

In the interests of being fair, there may be a few entrants who might have misunderstood what the entry process is for ADB 2018, so we will keep registrations open for another week. So, you now have until the November Wednesday 22nd to enter for All British Day.

To register you must go onto the ABD website and either print, fill in and post an entry form, or, alternatively fill in the online registration form which will redirect you to a Pay Pal site for credit card payment.

Please click on this link below for entry information.
