National Heritage Motoring Day

Australia’s 100,000 motoring enthusiasts, grouped in more than 1,000 heritage motoring clubs, will uncover their precious machines, fire up motors and take them for a spin down memory lane.

On Sunday, May 21, they will come out in force onto roads across this wide brown land celebrating National Heritage Motoring Day, an initiative of the Australian Historic Motoring Federation.

Thousands of vehicles from the oldest veterans to the youngest collectable cars, trucks, buses, motorbikes, etc., get out and about promoting Australia's motoring heritage to the wider community.

All who own a vehicle more than 30 years old be it a car, bike, truck or tractor are welcome to join like minded enthusiasts at Bryant Park from 1pm to 2:15pm on Sunday.

Members of the Dinosaur Drivers Register and Midwest Historic Motor Club will be have their machines on display before enjoying a run to Morris Park, Canowindra.

To promote historic motoring, veterans which travel at a more leisurely pace, will make a visible presence in town as they wend their way in convoy up Kendal St, past the hospital, down Doncaster Rd and along the Canowindra Rd.

Vehicles which handle normal road speeds will drive through Cowra along Sydney Road to Sheet-of-Bark and take George Russell Drive to their destination.

There they’ll enjoy one another’s company around BYO afternoon tea.

If interested in participating, please feel free to contact Bryan Dawes, president of MHMC at All Service Motors on 6342 2590, or call Col ‘Doc’ Pidgeon on 6342 4706.
