The Bay to Birdwood is calling for owners of vintage, veteran and early classic vehicles to enterin this year’s ‘Run’ event, which takes place on Sunday 25 September.
Now in its 36th year, the event introduces a number of changes, which include the introduction of online entries, extended vehicle eligibility dates (to 31 December 1959), a new judging trophy and a modified route.
Entries are now available online at www.baytobirdwood.com.au, past entrants should check their letterboxes and inboxes as entry forms are sent out.
Bay to Birdwood Chairman Mal Hyde says, “We are pleased to announce a first for historic
motoring events in Australia by introducing a new judging category called the Preservation
Class. It is for vehicles that are substantially unaltered, unrestored and not modified.”
This year’s route will also change, “Due to the long term major road works in the East Parklands and after consultation with a number of stakeholders an alternative route to Hackney Road hasbeen choosen,” continued Mal.
The Bay to Birdwood will start at Barratt Reserve, West Beach where entrant vehicles will be waved off by legendary motorsport flag waver, Glen Dix. It will then head up Anzac Highway and turn on to Cross Road, Portrush Road, Payneham Road, Lower North East Road and head up to Houghton and back through Inglewood and Gumeracha, finishing at its home of 36 years – the National Motor Museum in Birdwood.
“There are a number of changes to this years event but they are vital to its success and
longevity. We are committed to delivering a wonderful iconic South Australian event for
motoring enthusiasts, local communities, families and tourists.
