There were roughly 400 vehicles vying for trophies in some 20 sections. A crowd estimated to be around 6000 was in attendance.

Food stalls did a roaring trade with our local Lions Club selling out at its sausage sizzle. Stallholders also did very well as did the RSL Club.

Some of the standout winners were:

Best in Show:       Lancia Fulvia                        Jim White.

People’s Choice: Iron Head Harley                 Greg Hodson.

Best Vintage:        1929 Oakland                      Mal Smith.

Best Holden:         1996 HR                                Tony Rowe.

Best Motorcycle   2015 Harley Breakout        Shane Evans.

More details and photos can be found by visiting the Tilligerry Auto Club Inc. website.

Apart from a large cash donation to the John Hunter Paediatric Oncology unit, this year five local sporting clubs will also benefit from generous equipment donations.

It takes several weeks to finalise the net proceeds of the day.

At a date to be advised, a presentation night at the RSL Club will see a sizable cheque handed over to representatives from the hospital.We will cover the event and keep you informed. Watch this space.
