Be the first to register
The 60’s and 70’s provided an era of the most outstanding vehicle
competition in the world.
The cars that raced you could buy. It spanned an era of famous and fabulous drivers that became household
names then, and remain so today – Moffat, Brock, Goss, Firth, Grice, Manton, Geoghan; the list goes on.
It sparked an era of legendary Aussie Muscle Cars that are the most desirable to own in the country today – The
Falcon GT HO, Monaro, Torana, Charger and their many variations. It was also a period when Bathurst accepted
various other makes and models allowing vehicles other than the great Aussie Muscle machines to compete –
Datsun 1600, Mini Cooper S, Alfa Romeo, Lotus, Cortinas and many more.
The Leukaemia Foundation is offering owners of these great vehicles (replicas accepted) the opportunity to
enjoy a 7 day Aussie Muscle Car Run from Sunday 15 May to Saturday 21 May 2016.
This run will take entrants on approximately 1,910 kilometres of bitumen roads around a broad sweep of
Victoria to enjoy the hospitality, scenery, mixing with like-minded enthusiasts and of course, the sheer pleasure
of the drive.
It is not a competition event; it is a week-long cruise event and opportunity to show off your car to the wider
Entrants will also have the opportunity to participate in various controlled motorsport events, including iconic
tracks and much more!
In return for your entrance fee and sponsorship efforts, the Aussie Muscle Car Run organisers will include daily
breakfast and dinner, accommodation, overnight security for the cars, official entrant’s shirt, car livery (stickers),
back up mechanical support/facilities and motor sport events. Your entrance fee and sponsorship will help to
fund the Leukaemia Foundation’s regional program supporting patience and families from rural and regional
This is an event that cannot be missed by any Aussie Muscle Car enthusiast that yearns for the glory days of
Bathurst 1963 to 1977.

Entrant Sponsorships & Fundraising
Individual entrants in this unique motoring event have the opportunity to
seek sponsorship to offset all or part of the cost of taking part.
This could be achieved in a number of ways:
Develop a package for your team that includes sponsor stickers for your vehicle (In addition to the event
sponsor stickers which we will provide as part of your entrant’s kit)
Arrange to have your car on display at your sponsor’s business premises, or at local community events
Prepare a media kit to highlight your sponsor in local newspapers and arrange interviews on radio
Highlight your sponsor in club newsletters
Wear T-shirts with prominent sponsor ID. Offer your sponsor, his/her staff and clients the opportunity
to have a cruise in your vehicle
Offer to take your sponsor and perhaps one or two of his/her clients on the event with yourself as the
Run raffles at your club(s) and amongst friends and workmates
Organise fundraising at BBQs and other social or community events
Share the costs with your co-driver
Some entrants may wish to cover all the costs themselves and enjoy the event as a self-funded muscle
car cruising holiday.
We hope that some of our suggestions help! For more ideas, call Meaghan on 0422 009 955 or email at
