Bay to Birdwood Classic (Adelaide -ish)
2019 is a Bay to Birdwood year and this year looks to be another cracker of a show with the range of display vehicles extended to 1986, starting again at 1956. That is 30 years of automotive brilliance!
As is usually the case, a number of club members will be driving over for the weekend. If anyone is interested in joining the convoy please come along to a night meeting or contact a committee member for details.
Entry is restricted to cars built between 1956 to 1986, though spectators can also participate on the day.
Entries close on the 19th of August and there is a limit for entries so soon is good if you are looking to go. Entries for the concourse are due in by July 19th.
From the Bay to Birdwood website:
The Bay to Birdwood is an annual historic vehicle run held in South Australia. The 2019 event is for classic and early modern vehicles (manufactured between 1956-1986) and will take place on Sunday 29 September.
The Bay to Birdwood is one of the world’s great historic motoring events. First held in 1980 the event has become a fixture on the South Australian events calendar. It is a mass-participatory citizen-collector historic motoring event. It draws participants from far and wide and attracts thousands of spectators to line the route and attend the start and finish events. Breakfast is available early at the start sites and then the passing parade is greeted by the spectators as it makes it way to the finish at the Adelaide Hills township of Birdwood.
At the Finish event, there is entertainment, local produce, food and wine, children’s activities and the camaraderie of participating in and celebrating this internationally renowned event. The judging of the vehicle awards takes place at the finish as well as the Fashions in the Field- where everyone has the chance to show off their finery and win great prizes.
