We kicked July off with our first Christmas in July event.  We had the perfect winter's day with over 40 attendees, we started with brunch at The Royal in Mornington.  We then went to Arthurs Seat, on to Flinders and finished in Hastings at the Marina for coffee, cake and of course, Christmas pudding.  Read more and see photos from our day here.

We then had our July members' meeting at Shannons Insurance with the Victorian Flagmarshalling Team.  This was a great insight into what it is like to get involved in motorsport without getting on track.  Read more about the night here.

On 28 July we kicked off the first round of our Drivers' Championship!  We had the perfect 25 degree day with Simon Lyne being the quickest BMW with a 1.06.6358.  Read Royce Lyne's recap of his day here.

On 29 July we joined Mercedes Benz Club Victoria for Coffee & Cars at Lorbeks, Port Melbourne.  Thanks to Chris from Mercedes Benz Club Vic for inviting us to attend!  We were lucky to enjoy the day before the rain.  Read more about our morning here.

For more about our month, catch up with our July update from Graeme Bell here.


As the days start to get longer and the weather begins to improve, we have some cruise and display events coming up in August:
  • Saturday, 4 August
    Jindivick Cruise
    Starting at the BP Roadhouse on the M1 at Officer – a regular starting point with coffee and facilities. We’ll meet by 8.45am for a 9.00am departure.
  • Sunday, 5 August
    August Members' Meeting
    Join us for a relaxed morning at Antique Motorcycles.  
  • Sunday, 26 August
    German Auto Day
    The German Auto Day brings together the best German cars of Melbourne in one spot with some of the quirky, and now defunct brands being included.
    It is not a concours, or even a show and shine, so any clean car is very welcome. Anything 1990 or older - the more the merrier!
    It is a great setting, raising funds for a good cause, and with lots of interesting cars to look at and fascinating company.
