Castlemaine 26

Dear Lancisti, members and friends 
Castlemaine26 by all accounts was a huge success and I’m buoyed by the accolades and enthusiasm to continue the biennial events in the historical and much-loved township of Castlemaine. We celebrated 100 years of Lambda in the best possible way and had many very well presented cars shown. We also celebrated 50 years of the Australian lancia Register with some special words in our club book that was presented to attendee’s. Of course an event wouldnt be complete without photo’s and video’s to remember it and we hope to inspire people to continue to attend the event in 2023.  

Below is some drone footage and a slide show. Enjoy!

Post Castlemaine Tour: New Dates

March 7-20, 2022

What are YOU doing next March? Surely you are tired of lock downs, restrictions and no social interaction?

After the Castlemaine Rally weekend winds up, join us for one or two weeks touring the best of the State of Victoria in your Lancia.

The Tour was nearly at capacity given the October dates but some are unable to join us in March next year due to other commitments leaving some vacancies. CONSULT your diary and see if you are free.

John Shellard and I have now confirmed all events are re-booked for the new dates noting that the overnight stop in Rutherglen in the second week has been omitted in lieu of an extra night in the port town of Echuca.

As you will understand, organisation has been unusually difficult with the necessary change of date and some changes of venue.   Please help the organisers reserve sufficient space by indicating your intentions as early as possible.   Do not hold back in case Covid may prevent you attending.   

You must book (re-book) your accommodation yourself and so please contact either of us for a list of Hotels/Motels. We strongly suggest you book your accommodation NOW to ensure a bed as already March is proving busy.

To book your entry ONLINE, go to https://alr.org.au/castlemaine-tour-part-1

We anticipate restrictions regarding social distancing and masks still and we expect to have rules around mandatory vaccinations to participate in our event.

So please go and get vaccinated: it is our only chance of exiting this pandemic, according to health professionals.
