Events: Bay to Birdwood 2015 preview

This Sunday, the Adelaide Hills will be flooded with so many classic cars your SD card will be full before half of them leave the Barrett Reserve in Glenelg at daybreak.

Download the 2015 entry list and you’ll find 34 pages of everything from local Holden/Ford stuff in abundance, Austins and Alfas to Simcas, Sunbeams, Valiants, Vauxhalls, Volvos and Wolsleys.

Entrants will come from as far as Queensland, Perth, Tassie and NT just to drive in Bay to Birdwood, one of the oldest motoring events in the country, to be flagged off in their cars built 1 January 1956 and 31 December 1978 by flamboyant Grand Prix flag waver Glen Dix at 8.30am.

That’s 1750 cars pedalling 70kms out from the Adelaide shores, up Anzac Highway to the Adelaide CBD and north-east to Houghton, further west through Gumercha and Chain of Ponds to inundate the entire town of Birdwood where the National Motor Museum will host for its 35th year with the event.

The National Motor Museum in Birdwood also celebrates its 50th anniversary incognito with Bay to Birdwood and we’ll be there to cover the whole shebang, including the concours event, and you can bet we’ll be sampling some of the Barossa wine and cheese in the local famers market!

Check out our full coverage, including a whopping photo gallery, plus Unique Cars Facebook posts and our full-colour Team Beige report, in issue #381 of Unique Cars magazine, on sale October 22nd. Don’t miss it!
