FerrAgosto & Eastern Creek 2015

Sunday the 16th of August saw our vibrant club participate in two iconic events in the Sydney Metro involving, 50 of our Classic Italian Made cars!
35 cars assembled at theOfficeworks car park on Parramatta Road (just opposite High Performance Smash repairs) for an 8:30am Cavalcade bound for Five Dock FerrAgosto festivities. Our contribution was significant. Our Classic cars with their classic colours maintaining interest all day. 
All things Italian, were experienced on the day, including Live dance acts, singing, Italian & International Food glorious food! Members were kept busy answering many questions from passers by.
It was wonderful to see the LARGE NUMBER OF MEMBERS that visited throughout the day, each contributing to "The Buzz" that was evident at our display.
A further 14 members gathered at Eastern Creek  International raceway, for the annual CMC Classic. Again, our cars creating a great deal of interest, amongst the 1900, Classic, Vintage & Veteran Cars assembled throughout the grounds.
Member Rose Cara making a significant contribution to the day, doing "Laps of the raceway" in her 1969 Fiat 500, accompanying some Lucky winners of a Radio 2CH competition. We are still trying to determine who was happier, the driver or the winners of the prize!
Our Club under took a "parade lap" at 3:00pm... many onlookers were astonished by the performance and the "Italian Opera", the lovely sound of classic Italian fine tuned engines as they make their way around the race track.
What a weekend and what a contribution! Well done IMSMC. What a Club...What a wonderful family!
