On the evening of Friday, 19 June (in three weeks’ time) drivers, navigators and their passengers will get together at the Hilton Cairns for a meet & greet. We’ll learn about rally’s Rules, we’ll discuss the signs of the Roadbook, catch up with old friends and make some new ones, and get psyched up for the upcoming 2 days’ challenges.
In the meantime, even though the number of entries did reach the capped maximum of 60, in the last two weeks 5 of them had to drop out for various mechanical issues – which are unfortunate but in the world of classic cars it tends to happen sometimes. We wish these 5 cars a speedy recovery and look forward to hosting AC15 with still the highest number of entrants so far: 55 fascinating classic cars, 115 of the nicest people you can imagine, and potentially thousands of spectators in Cairns and the neighbouring towns.
Our international presence is also getting stronger as we get closer to the event: the above ad yesterday hit the streets on the pages of UK’s Classic Cars magazine, distributed worldwide. Look for the “July” issue because that’s how they named the one released on 28 May.
