The National Trust (ACT) Centenary of Canberra Rally is coming

Andrew Barr has been having fun with old cars this morning and has launched next year’s “National Trust (ACT) Centenary of Canberra Rally”.

This morning I launched the National Trust (ACT) Centenary of Canberra Rally, which will take place on October 19-20 next year.

The Rally celebrates a number of significant milestones in the automotive and maritime history of Australia, the ACT and NSW, and is sure to excite motoring enthusiasts from Canberra and the surrounding region.

More than 1000 vintage and modern cars will depart Jervis Bay on October 19, and travel via Tarago, Bungendore and Queanbeyan, arriving in Canberra that evening. The next morning the cars will travel from Exhibition Park, doing a cruise down Northbourne Avenue, and ending on the lawns of Old Parliament House for a vehicle display and entertainment.

Vehicles will come from right around Australia, and the event is open to all ages and marques, with vehicles as old as Canberra itself – such as the Model T Ford – set to take part.

The ACT Government is proud to be supporting the National Trust Centenary of Canberra Rally through the Community Centenary Initiatives Fund. The $1 million fund is supporting more than 50 initiatives, events and activities to be held throughout next year.

With luck they’ll be in Canberra in time for the January 2014 Summernats….

What are solid rubber tyres like for doing burnouts?

I’ll assume the matching fire extinguisher is an optional extra?

Whole new meaning to burnout.

(Or old meaning?)

Ugh, they’re going to try and pimp that MiEV piece of crap as a good investment.
