A colourful parade of 100 classic cars will circle the Macedon Ranges this Saturday for the 15th annual GREAT Macedon Grand Tour.
Locals are being invited to watch the tour right from the “flag off” outside the Old Gisborne Courthouse at 9am.
The cars, which are all more than 25 years old, will be on display in Gisborne beforehand from 7.30am. Most of the vehicles will also be parked and available for viewing in Riddells Creek from 10.30-11.30am and in Malmsbury from 1.30-2.30pm.
Organiser David Ellis said Holden would be the featured marque at this year’s event to commiserate Holden halting production in Australia last year.
Joining the tour’s Holdens will be the event’s oldest vehicle – a 1929 Holden-bodied Chevrolet AC Sedan.
The tour will use the catering service of local community groups to take care of its 220 participants and help raise money for charities.
Gisborne Bowling Club, Riddells Creek Junior Mixed Basketball, Malmsbury CFA and Woodend RSL will feed the guests, while Riddells Creek Men’s Shed has made the event’s trophies.
