Great Australian Rally 2007

The ninth RACV Great Australian Rally yesterday (Sunday, 21 January) raised a record amount for charity beneficiary, the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

More than $40,000 was raised via vehicle owner entry fees and gate proceeds from the picnic and vehicle display event at Mornington Racecourse, attended by 4000 people.

RACV Motoring Association Manager, Brian Kelly, said the organisers were delighted with the record amount generated by this highly successful family-orientated event.

"All proceeds go to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and will be used to further the centre’s efforts to combat cancer and to treat patients," Mr Kelly said.

"The strengths of Peter Mac are its patient-centred care, dedication to research and an ability to investigate and utilise new patient treatments. Peter Mac also trains new generations of doctors, scientists, nurses and allied health professionals."

Mr Kelly said the annual RACV event had grown into Victoria’s largest vintage, veteran and classic car rally - this year’s rally attracted almost 900 vehicle buffs.

Some of the more remarkable cars on display at Mornington included George Hetrel’s 1896 single-cylinder Benz Velo, one of only two left in the world - the other is at the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart.

"Another crowd pleaser was Ross Wolstenholm’s beautiful 1950s Aston Martin DB3S, the predecessor to the iconic DB5, as seen in the 1964 James Bond movie, Goldfinger," he said.

Other attractions included a pristine Jaguar XK 150 coupe, 1960s Mini Cooper S, super-car prototype A.C. Ace, a Ferrari Testarossa and a contemporary Formula One concept car.
