The AMCR start line.

The Aussie Muscle Car Run start line.

Just a quick post to mark a successful conclusion to nine consecutive days of filming and editing on the road with the Aussie Muscle Car Run and an amazing bunch of people. Since it’s inception in 2012 the AMCR has raised more than $1.1 million for the Leukaemia Foundation and its Vision to Cure, Mission to Care.

This year some would say the home of the ‘Aussie Muscle Car’ was the highlight destination. Leaving from the Clipsal 500 start line in Adelaide on the 31st of October, the entrants cruised to Bathurst, where they took part in a super sprint event on the legendary Conrod Straight. They also tore up the ashphalt with some time trials at the Winton Raceway and competed at the Legends Of The Lakes Hillclimb event at Mt Gambier. All up, the teams covered over 3100 km, and raised over half a million dollars, making this years event┬áthe most successful yet.

Next year the event is expanding to include runs in Western Australia and the Northern Territory as well as continuing on with the South Australian based event. For more information head over to the AMCR website.

As well as a daily update we filmed some pre-event videos to raise awareness for the event.
