2016 National Rally almost fully subscribed

 

28th July

 

Presidents, Secretaries (and various friends who may have a wide circle of Healey contacts in their State)

 

I am pleased to be able to report that registration for the 2016 National Rally is running at record pace for a SA rally. However, this means that we have only 1 two bedroom apartment (shared bathroom) at McCracken Country Club, and 5 two or three bedroom apartments at The Bluff (two bathrooms) left to fill. Would you please advise your Club members, and particularly any who you know have indicated an interest in participating but have yet to book, that they will need to book promptly or they may miss out. All single rooms at both venues were filled a long time ago, and couples will need to “buddy up” to secure rooms, or go on a waiting list. There are a number of South Australian members who attended the 2011 rally who have yet to register and they will also be advised of the near capacity situation in the next 24 hours.

 

I have attached registration and accommodation forms and they are also available on our website at www.austinhealeysa.com.au

 

All registrations are being dealt with strictly on a first come first served basis. We do not require any immediate deposit. The full rally ticket price is payable by 30 November 2015 and the full accommodation price by 29 February 2016.

 

Please note that the rally email address is healeysa2016rally@gmail.com .

 

We hope to see you in Victor Harbour.

 

Regards

2015 National Rally photo gallery & video footage

In typical Gordon Lindner style, there is a fantastic photo gallery from the Lorne National Rally at https://picasaweb.google.com/ozhealey/AustinHealeyNationalRally2015?noredirect=1 .  Gordon took a lot of photos over the 4 days so he’s only posted the best 464 photos !
Invest 3 minutes at https://vimeo.com/125553871 on the fantastic video footage of Healeys on the Great Ocean Road, you won't regret it !  Thank you to Ben Goad and the rest of the Hoverscope team.  If you were there, see if you can spot yourself, if you weren't there, now you know how good it was.  Either way, you might be inspired to make it to the 2016 National Rally in Victor Harbour, South Australia.

December Inspiration
 
Take a look at these couple of fantastic period Healey/Australiana scenes from the movie On The Beach with Ava Gardner and Gregory Peck.  It was a strange choice to dub a V8 exhaust note into the first scene when they had one of the best ever exhaust notes avaiable from the same source fabulous visuals.  The second scene shot from Pt Lonsdale looking across the heads to Pt Nepean, Portsea, etc is about as good as '50s Australiana gets, I love it.  Go to http://www.tubechop.com/watch/4309440 andhttp://www.tubechop.com/watch/4309457
 
From October
Check out the Jackson, Duffy and Goldsmith Big Healey Group S action from Retrofest 2014 at Sydney Motorsport Park, Eastern Creek back in May.  Go to http://vimeo.com/106238742 for the 14th September edition of SBS' Speedweek program.  Drag to minute 47:00 on the slider to go straight to the start of the Group S race.
