Thousands expected at Bay to Birdwood Run

| 27 Jul 2012

More than 1500 cars and 80,000 spectators will attend this year’s Bay to Birdwood Run, which starts at Adelaide Shores, in Australia, on 29 September.

The event, which is open to vehicles built before 1956, will attract everything from veteran to vintage and classic cars. This year’s tour will pay tribute to the 1920s through to the ’50s, with participants encouraged to dress for the period of their car.

Rare and unusual machines will also be on show ranging from a meticulously restored Rolls-Royce Phantom I to an Austin Seven in the year the model celebrates its 90th anniversary.  

The event will conclude at the National Motor Museum in Birdwood, South Australia.

Martin Haese, chairman of the Bay to Birdwood Committee, said: “The Bay to Birdwood is an event that sums up everything that is great about South Australia. We have already received an unprecedented number of entries from local, interstate and overseas enthusiasts. Thanks to the ongoing support of enthusiasts, the State Government, sponsors and the local community, the Bay to Birdwood continues to go from strength to strength.”
