2019 Ballarat Concours Preliminary Photos kindly provided by Bob & Cherryle Watters

A well earned cold drink at Euroa on the way to Ballarat after a hot afternoon behind the wheel. Keen observers will note that Ian Cuss has already finished his drink while the more refined gentlemen are enjoying the occasion with dignity.

General photo of the location with display class cars in the background, the 3 cars in the right of the picture are the Concours Class (I think it is now called Originality) entries. Probably for the first time there wasn't a TR3A in this class, the winner was David Stephen's TR2 in the centre, David Chapman's Geranium TR2 was second with John and Leonie Johnson's TR3 third. The day was bitterly cold with occasional showers hence the scarcity of cars with their tops down.

An interested group as Grant, the proprietor of Up the Creek Restorations, explains some of the challenges of rebuilding a vintage Bentley engine.
This place was a revelation with Bentleys, Bugattis and Lancias all undergoing work.

A visit to local member Colin Sergeant to view his collection of pre 1930 motorcycles was a treat.
All are used regularly including runs from Sydney to Perth and Adelaide to Darwin.

Colin even has a garden Railway which is normally enjoyed by his grandchildren however on this occasion Ian Cuss was a substitute.
I bet it was going flat chat!
