Cruden Farm at Langwarrin will host the 2019 EastLink Great Australian Rally on Sunday, January 20. Victoria’s largest veteran, vintage and classic car rally, organised and conducted by the All British Classics Car Club Vic Inc and sponsored by EastLink, is designed to promote the pleasures of historic motoring while raising money for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation’s cancer research.
Replicas of the first Benz and Ford cars will be on display as well as a selection of vehicles through the ages, right up to the Tesla e-vehicle, with the historic gardens of Cruden Farm as their magnificent backdrop. Bring your lunch or buy from a range of catering trucks on site and enjoy a picnic on the manicured lawns while listening to the Royal Australian Navy Band.
The rally will set off from EastLink Ringwood, Rowville and St Kilda Rd in the city as well as from Western Port Marina at Hastings. Veteran, vintage, classic and modern classic vehicles, motorcycles and commercial vehicles are eligible to enter if they’re at least 25 years old. An entry brochure with all details can be obtained at greataustralianrally.com.au or contact Rex Hall on 0408 303 129 or email [email protected]
