Adelaide’s custom car community really stepped up to the plate for this year’s MotorEx Cruise for Charity. An eye-catching 478 vehicles participated in the community and Police supported cruise from Wigley Reserve (Glenelg North) to Playford Alive Oval. That’s almost a 25 percent increase over 2014 – well done folks!
More importantly than the generous increase in vehicle numbers was the fantastic $16,904.10 they raised for Camp Quality.
With the impressive convoy parked up at Playford Alive Oval, Geoff from Extreme Auto Expo set about determining the winners of the eleven light-hearted Show ‘n’ Shine awards – click here for the rundown of lucky winners.
In addition to getting their pride and joy out of the garage under perfect weather conditions, participants and spectators enjoyed a great day with fellow enthusiast from the custom car community. Select local businesses including Tuff Mounts were on hand to showcase their wares and provide plenty of good advice for everyone’s current and future projects.
A courageous 13 vehicles backed up onto the Dyno Dynamics chassis dyno to test their mettle and battle it out across the seven different Dynotech Hunt for Horsepower categories.
C4C Adelaide is unique in a few ways; the start point features beautiful Adelaide Harbour views and unlike the cruises in every other state, Adelaide is the only one where every participating vehicle lines up at the start point. It’s also completely organised by a volunteer crew, without whom the day wouldn’t happen, nor be the fantastic success it is.
This organizational team includes: 86/BRZ Adrenaline Car Club, CACHE Car Club, Tom Jones, Bec Maguire, Fran Butler, Danni Reynolds, Nikki Taylor, James Poke, Bob Wilson, along with Brandon and Colin Baker. Thanks also to Lynx Security Services who donated their services for the day.
Equally important is C4C’s national sponsors: Meguiar’s MotorEx, Liqui-Moly, Designer Wraps, House of Kolor, Just Car Insurance, Turbosmart, Dyno Dynamics and Lowe Fabrications. Thank you all very much.
For 2015, C4C Adelaide teamed up with an official media partner, Slow Life – an Adelaide-based car community that hosts local car-related events and produces automotive-based content. Their energetic crew snapped hundreds of great images and shot reams of great footage. Check out the photo gallery and stay tuned for the upcoming video that C4C will be posting shortly.
Slow Life certainly enjoyed the day, posting on their Facebook page, “The weather was beautiful, the rides were pristine, and the vibe was great all round! A massive thanks to the MotorEx and C4C teams for throwing yet another fantastic event!”
