Sunday the 18th August 37 cars with the presence of 45 members and approximately 120 family and friends, participated in the 2013 Shannons Eastern Creek Classic at the Sydney Motorsport Park. The day was perfect. An abundance of sunshine and an atmosphere long to be remembered! 2 of our members, Emmanual Ziino and Giovanni Ciampa, entered their cars in the Presidents concourse and we are happy to announce that they both picked up awards for the 1951-1960 & 1961-1970 respective classes! Congratulations guys! Our club was the 2nd group to parade around the international raceway. We were commended in the manner in which we moved off from our display area, then onto the marshalling pitt and moved onto the track in an orderly manner (without any assistance from the marshalls) - worthy of an award! The parade was the most colourful and diverse of the entire day...everything from Abarths to Zagatos, sedans, wagons, coupes, spiders, 2 doors & 4 door classics! At the conclusion of our parade, each car was moved back to the display area in a very efficient manner, again worthy of an award! Before too long, boots began to pop and eskies began to appear, producing a morning tea fit for royalty! It was certainly a day where our cars, with our members and friends, attracted the attention of like minded people. Many visitors exclaiming how wonderful our display looked. Many took notice of the sweet sound of the high revving Italian stallions, creating a special interest in our fine tuned Italian specialties! We proudly acknowledge the commaraderie of our club and the special effort of each member to have created an impact on the day, reflecting the contribution that the ITALIAN MADE SOCIAL MOTORING CLUB makes for the "historic car movement" in every public appearance. Well done ladies and gentlemen of IMSMC. An award winning performance!
