South Western Classic

On Saturday the 11th of September, IMSMC participated in the South Western Classic, held at Thomas Hassall College, Hoxton Park. 17 members presented their cars in spectacular fashion. A number of other members visited on the day, as their cars were unavailable to participate. We thank them for taking the opportunity to visit fellow members and contribute to the "mood" of the day.

Our day began with a meeting at Stocklands Car park Bossley Park and right on time, at 8:30am, the thoroughbreds made their way to Hoxton Park. We had a brief "static display" on the corner of Bossley Road and Cowpasture road, whilst Maria Losinno sorted out an "electrical situation" with her cinquecento!

As we made our way toward the College, Cowpasture Road was transformed into an Italian "Strada", (some members looking, but not stopping at 1 (or was it 2?) sets of traffic lights!)

Upon arrival, our cars had immediate impact! A very mild 20C at 9:30am - sun shining and highlighting the "mod colours" of each of our classics. Food, dance, fun, rides and great company, soon unveiled. We were surrounded by classics and street machines from many clubs with some amazing engineering!

Our committee organised a pizza lunch for all who attended, (we certainly know how to eat!). At the business part of the day our Club was awarded the BEST CLUB DISPLAY!

A wonderful result for each of our enthusiastic participants. Further, the prize money ($500) was spread equally amongst 5 of our members...sharing the prizes were:
John Di Rocco, Riccardo Cappolino, Maurizio Puglisi, Lloyd Jamieson & Gerardo Mediati. Congratulations to our winners.

At the conclusion to the day, the event organisers offered an extreme amount of gratitude and are hopeful of our participation next year.

Thank you to each participant - your enthusiasm is greatly appreciated and is obviously well noted by the public.
