November 2017

Hi Members,

I cannot believe another month has gone so fast! 1948 to 2017 Holdens built in Australia... Gone!  Bathurst, run and won... All over! Hamilton, F1 World Champ... Again! GC 600, run and won... Spectacular!

Not everyone that owns a classic piece of motoring history also loves motorsport, but most do, as do I. I was given the rare opportunity to drive the Monaro around the track at the GC 600 and put on a little display for the fans. My wife was saying something as I kept the drive train speed exceeding the car speed, but I couldn’t hear her! Such is life.

I also just returned from 3 days at Qld Raceway and enjoyed the BEST circuit race I have EVER seen in the HQ Holden event. They made the V8 Supercars look a little tame. If you have never see one of these events, try it. Last round is at Morgan Park Warwick the weekend of the 2nd of December.

Well the rain spoilt our Woody Point run but thankfully we have more to come this year. Check out the web site or Facebook page and see what’s on soon.

For those who may have attended the Gold Coast Muscle Car show held at Nerang State High School on the 5th of November, I hope you had a good time.

We have had a great response to the Albert River Winery Christmas function so if you have not yet indicated your intention to join us in a good run, with the cars you love and the people we tell stories to, you only have until the 08/11/17 to pay.

I still have one room available for accommodation at the 2018 Monaro Natonals if anyone is interested.

Please join us on any run you can. It’s the people that make them great! That’s you!

Drive safe,

Rod Boyle
Club President
