I love my car and am totally a Jum fan but I'm sorry even the great man himself is not driving my car without my investment being completely covered.
Out of interest David do you know how it works in the UK with the Goodwood Revival?

Sorry, I can't shed any light on that.

So it appears the Muscle Car Masters is moving to June in 2018.

They seem to be moving it around a lot.....

They've been trying to revive it in the face of other big meetings that got moved to only a few weeks either side of it and have a new plan for next year and then back to it's original date on Father's Day. I think it will be good for the meeting.

So how does moving it around so much help? I am confused!

The Sydney Classic Speed Festival on the June long weekend has been growing so I presume they want to use that for next year and then get it back to its' traditional home on Father's Day. Don't ask my why they're not moving it straight back to Father's Day next year, I have no idea. I can only presume they'd already booked up something else that weekend.
I'm sure the marketing people will be making a big thing about it all when it does move back to Father's Day.

A moving target is harder to hit Terry

Muscle Car Masters is seemingly dead..... this year it seems to have been absorbed in the "Sydney Masterblast" featuring the Muscle Car Masters.... what that means, who knows? There is motorbike racing on the schedule though....

The latest "Australian Muscle Car Magazine" makes absolutely no mention of the Sydney Masterblast or comment about the Muscle Car Masters. They generally always have some info in every edition about the coming years event, so you would assume they might have commented about it's passing as a standalone event.

Former editor Luke West even writes a column in the latest edition advocating a retro racing weekend at Bathurst as a fifth event as something that might be popular.... isn't that what the Muscle Car Masters has been for the last 14 years?

True, it has been rebranded as "Sydney Master Blast incorporating Muscle Car Masters". I know it's only semantics but you can't really say it's been absorbed into Sydney Master Blast since Master Blast was a session on the MCM programme until now. As well as the addition of bikes onto the programme, there are 4 categories (including us) that have a night race on the Saturday night using the Druitt Circuit. The night races will be a great spectacle but I fear will detract from the Sunday programme with people not wanting to do the late night and back up again at 9.00 for the start of Sunday racing. Only time will tell but I really thing the move back to the Father's Day weekend is a much needed move.

That might be so but it doesn't really seem to be the same sort of celebration of Australian Touring Cars, Bathurst and muscle cars that it once was. Will all the old cars and stars be celebrated etc...? ... does Chevron still have an involvement in this "Sydney Masterblast" that features motorcycles and Karts?

Not only that, there is a Shannons Nationals event the same weekend..... With a headline event promoted by the V8 Sleuth who is usually involved at the MCM

Without AMC or someone explaining the name change further, there is little more to go on other than to assume the event as it was has fundamentally died off

AFAIK Chevron sold their stake in the event a few years ago. It will be interesting to see where a few of my regular competitors race that weekend being as they own Group A cars and old Supertaxis.
