The Details

The Aussie Muscle Car Run is from October 29 to November 4 and lasts seven days.

Muscle cars built between 1963 and 1977 are required for entry, but replicas and special interest vehicles will also be considered by the organisers. Entry into the event is $1200 per person, including accommodation, breakfasts and dinners, and each car is expected to fundraise a minimum of $4000 before the event.

The Journey

The journey will take you through four states to get to the final destination. Starting in Sydney, you and your beaut car will do a parade lap of the Sydney Motorsport Park, alongside other contestants and their classic muscle cars. You’ll be passing through each state’s notorious tracks and car enthusiast holy ground. In Canberra, there’ll be a tour of the Australian War Memorial, followed by a scenic drive through the snowy mountains to Benalla. Here entrants will stop at the Winton Motor Raceway, before moving onwards to Geelong and the Ford Proving Ground. You won’t want to miss Portland Drags from Geelong to Mount Gambier, with the tour ending in Adelaide for a presentation dinner. Enjoy all the delights of Australia’s unique landscape from the comfort of your iconic car!
