On Sunday August 17th, the club was incolved with 2 separate Displays. One was the Shannons Classic at Sydney Motorsport raceway and the other at FerrAgosto in Five Dock.
The Bureau of meteorology predicted bewteen 50-70 mm of rain starting in Brisbane and extending to the North of Victoria. Although we were all hopeful that they may have got it wrong, unfortunately they were right on the button, with rain starting to fall late Saturday afternoon throughout the Sydney Metro, continued through the night and well into Sunday morning!
Unfortunately this affected the numbers at both venues, however, we take our hat off to the 17 member cars that participated at FerrAgosto and another 15 member cars that braved the elements and attended Eastern Creek.
As unpredictable as the weather man can be, the FerrAgosto event blossomed into action at approximately 1200 midday, with the sun, came the crowds. The interest in our cars was evident. A huge thanks to all the 17 members who brought their vehicles and displayed them, we thank you for your passion!
At Eastern Creek, approximately 1700 cars were expected and once again, the numbers suffered significantly, as approximately 300 cars came through the gates. All the same, our club is recognised as having made a signficant contribution to the Historic car movement. We had 7 x Fiat 850's displayed on Pit Lane as part of the 50th anniversary celebration and a further 11 cars dominating area C.
Thank you to all that participated in both events...ultimately, it was worth the effort!
