Copper Coast 500 Sprint, Vic
If you can’t afford to break it, you can’t afford to race it; that’s a mantra I live by; hence why I haven’t raced a car for about 15 years. So here I am at the starting line of the Copper Coast 500 Sprints in my Holden VY SS Sandman, waiting for the flag to drop.
The Sprint, now in its third year, is put on by the Leukaemia Foundation by way of its Aussie Muscle Car Run arm. Headed by the inexhaustible Kevin May and the uncompromising Rachel Carson, the AMCR now hold a series of events across Australia with two aims; raise funds for The Foundation and have a bunch of automotive fun while doing so.
Previously known as the Kadina Muscle Car Sprints, Kevin, Rachel and local man-on-the-ground Bill Clarke elected this year to open it up to anything and everything, just so long as it was deemed interesting enough to put on a spectacle.
Here's just a sample of what showed up and keep an eye out for the full story on the event in an upcoming issue of Unique Cars magazine.
