MSCA SprInts September 29

The Marque Sports Car Association of SA is proposing to run another come and try day at Mallala in conjunction with a super sprint event on September 29th . The cost is $125 per driver which includes all entry and licence fees. Participants do not need to be a member of any car club. All that is required is a car with normal road seat belts or better, a fire extinguisher less than 3 years old and a blue triangle indicating battery position. Come and try involves some lectures by experienced instructors, some laps with a mentor in the passenger seat, and if the participant feels confident some flying solo laps.

To run this activity there will need to be a suitable number of starters to make the exercise worthwhile. This is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable driving experience. Would make a great gift idea for kids and gradchildren.

Any interested people can contact myself on 0421289706 or contact the MSCA of SA inc, via secretary Murray Stephenson,

Lions Gumeracha Show & Shine / Swap Meet

The Lions Gumeracha Show & Shine incorporates the Shannon’s Memorial Cruise which recognises our fallen from the defence force and those that have passed away from the motoring clubs in South Australia. Please submit your fallen club members names for inclusion in our service. This year’s event is on Sunday the 10th of November 2019 at the Gumeracha Sporting grounds.

This year’s show will see the introduction of an automotive Swap Meet. All Show and Shine entrants and Swap Meet sellers will be charged an entry fee of $15 per vehicle. The money raised on the day will be donated to “Camp Quality” and all donated gifts will be collected by the Lions Club who in turn will donate it to the Salvation Army for distribution to underprivileged children at Christmas time.

The Trophy categories have been increased this year to cover more classes. There will be a retro fashion parade and a silent auction with no reserve.  Entertainment on the day will be provided by one of Australia’s favourite Rockabilly bands, “The Lincolns” supported by DJ Peter Panagaris. Food & Drink stalls along with Coffee and Ice Cream vendors compliment the many trade stalls showcasing their products which are on display and for sale. 

The public may enter with a gold coin donation of their choosing. In all, a great South Australian project with something of interest for the whole family.

Yours sincerely, 

Lion Ray Johnson

Mid Week Meander Wrap

Yet again Russell and Judy Schmarr excelled themselves with a well organised and interesting ‘mystery’ mid week run.

Starting with a nice gaggle of sprites, midgets and assorted moderns, we headed off from a new starting point of the JB Ware reserve in Glen Osmond.

With a short run up the SE Freeway to the Eagle on the Hill turnoff saw the group work our way up to the Measday lookout and the old route into Adelaide through the hills.

Then thru Stirling, Aldgate and Hahndorf and out onto the old Melbourne road through Dawsley to Kanmantoo for a quick refreshment stop and then to Murray Bridge and crossing the old road bridge.

The route now took us toward our intended destination of the new motor racing circuit at Tailem Bend. Unfortunately due to a corporate booking our plans for lunch at ‘The Bend’ had to be changed and we only had a quick look at the outside!

Luckily Russell was able to book us into the Riverside Hotel back in Tailem Bend. Many of us have probably driven past it for many years on our way to the eastern states without a thought of stopping. However it is a nice pub, good food with a great view of the mighty Murray River.

A great day out, although Tina and I got a little damp on the way home!
