With one week to go until the 2017 Australian Muscle Car Masters, we have some more exciting news: the Legends Signing is go!
The annual Meet and Greet between the fans and the legends of Australian motorsport will be held in Suite 5/6 of the main pit building from 1:30pm to 2:30pm on Sunday 29th October.
Legends who have given their thumbs-up to attend MCM17 and may be at the Legends Signing throughout the hour include (in alphabetical order):
Allan Moffat (plus additional signing, see below)
Barry, Glenn and Aaron Seton
Allan Moffat will also be on hand in The Garage Cafe (level 1, main pit building) at 9:00am, 10:30am and 2:30pm on Sunday to sell and sign copies of his new book, Climbing The Mountain.
The 2017 Event Program has a poster at its centre just for autographs – pick one up from the friendly Rotary Club roving distributors at the entrance to the Main paddock near the dummy grid and skidpan, and the Grandstand Tunnel on the other side of the track.
Official MCM Merchandise is also available in the Merchandise Alley behind the grandstand for your signatures. It is also available to view and pre-order HERE.
Entry to the signing is via Suite 5, exit Suite 6. Check out our 2017 Event Map for all the details.
And buy your tickets online now to save up to 20% on the gate pricing! (saving based on Sunday GA Adult, kids 15 and under FREE).
*MCM cannot guarantee that all Legends will be at the signing at the one time. Our Legend guests rotate through the signing throughout the hour – but keep an eye out for them in the paddock and surrounds if you miss them!
Have a squawk at these two Bathurst winners from 1965 and 1966!
Bo Seton behind the wheel in a beaut tribute to his ‘1966 Bathurst Cooper S’, which is being bought to the event courtesy of the Lucas family in a tribute to Bo.
Recently both Bob Holden and Bo Seton spent time together as Bo transitions from the Gold Coast to the Mid North Coast of NSW where Bob has resided for many years.
After nearly 60 years of racing against each other and not really spending time as mates Bo rang Bob out of the blue and asked if he could go and visit. They sat and talked that afternoon about their time and Bob openly admitted he shed a tear as Bo left after realising they both were very similar in their ideals and beliefs, realising missed opportunities through certain periods in life both on and off track.
We can guarantee a number of things during this year’s Australian Muscle Car Masters….
(1) Bob Holden will be racing his Group A Toyota (still)!
(2) This Cooper S along with a number of cars will be onsite as a tribute to Bo…..and
(3) Bo will be supporting Bob and Bob will be celebrating Bo.
We only ponder what would have occurred if these two blokes had got together in the late 70’s early 80’s as a team?
If you see either at the event – go and shake their hands… and tell them how much they’re admired!
CALLING ALL XT GT OWNERS
Bo is also, of course. the father to Glenn, and his grandson Aaron is now making his name felt in Australian Motorsport. To have three generations of Motorsport among us is such a great thing – and to celebrate their motorsport history, we are dedicating a large area in the Pits for EX-racecars of Bo’s plus a collective of roadcars including Capris, GT 500s and if we can find someone willing to sticker their car up to replicate Bo’s 68 Bathurst XT GT (Zircon Green) then we’d sure be grateful to include that in a very special Parade Lap and Presentation on Pit Straight… SO if you own a Capri, or GT Cortina, we’re looking for a couple – and of course the XT GT which will be joined by genuine Bo Seton tin tops from the Golden Era at this year’s event.
