Castlemaine is coming

The biennial Castlemaine Rally is on again this year, and is the 25th running of the event.

The programme follows the same format as in years past, beginning with lunch on Friday 18 October, and a reception on Friday evening.

Saturday 19 October will begin with a gathering on the Western Oval on Saturday morning followed by a tour to the lunchtime venue, which this year will be Balgownie Estate just out of Bendigo. Saturday’s activities conclude with the traditional Event Dinner at the Castlemaine Hall.

Sunday 20 October will see us gather again at the Western Oval where we’ll stay for the day, giving visitors an opportunity to see the cars. Vans selling food and coffee will also be located there on the day.

This year’s theme model is the Kappa, celebrating its 100 years. We are pleased to again have Geoff Goldberg attend as Guest of Honour.

You will be able to book and pay on line, once we have the page ready an email will go out to members. The Newsletter will also have a paper entry form for those that prefer.

Lancia Lambda Australian Alpine Tour 2019

The Lancia Lambda Australian Alpine Tour 2019 has come and gone and what a great event it was. Here are a few photos to get you by until the words follow via the newsletter. Thanks to Alistair Palmer and Iain Simpson for their organising skills, herding cats and running a Lancia event would be comparable.
