You, your car and the clock!
The 1.5km long, 18m wide, Cootamundra Airport runway allows two cars to safely run side by side over the timed 400m.
Entry fee $90. Current road license required. No other licensing needed. Click here for the Entry Form and Supplementary Regulations.
The VSCCA presents its eighth annual Cootamundra Sprints for vintage and pre-1985 cars. Cars will be pre-1985 and will participate in either full speed timed acceleration sprints or regularity sprints. The latter allows vintage cars to accelerate over the 400m at any comfortable speed they choose and once a time has been given then the object will be to come as close to that as possible in subsequent runs.
We will continue the informal arrangement of past years in which competitors choose their running mate as this has generally resulted in good matches.
We create good old fashioned vintage fun without risking the cars. State of the art electronic timing is used.
Entry fee is $90
Roll bars are not required. No other licensing is required. The event will be open to VSCCA, VSCC Vic, HSRCA, GEAR and other car clubs with suitable cars as set out in the supp regs.
Limited space available
The event will be limited to 80 cars to ensure everyone gets adequate runs so first in first served. Download the Supplementary Regs and Entry Form now.
First run at 10.00am
A Saturday night dinner at the Cootamundra Services Club is organised at $30 per head plus drinks. Please let me know how many will be coming to that and include it in your payment. A free happy hour before that is included. Cootamundra is about four and a half hours drive from Sydney.

It’s on again! Many members enjoyed the catered lunch at Tony Strachan’s lovely house at Bellawongarah near Berry in 2013. A jazz band played in the roof-top gazebo. There was plenty of space for cars and people on the lawns, with a backdrop of the rainforest.
Tony has kindly invited us again for a catered lunch under the trees, with the jazz band again on the roof, and the added attraction of the chance to see his new motor house - or should that be “motor palace” - and proper cars displayed in the paddock.
The cost is expected to be $50 per person and $25 for children. The money will be collected at the entrance on the day.
Numbers are needed early for catering, so please RSVP to Wilga Coutts at email@example.com as soon as possible.
The absolute cut -off date for reservations will be 19th October. NOTE: This event is in lieu of the Southern Highlands Breakfast Run on the last Sunday of the month.
Book early so you don't miss out

A repeat of last year’s event will be run at The Missions in Gunderman alongside the Hawkesbury River near Wisemans Ferry. This year we are hoping for far less wind and more planes coming in and taking off on the grass airstrip than we saw last year.
Roy has a collection of vintage aeroplanes and on the day his friends and their vintage aircraft will be flying in to join us. The Bridge City Jazz Band will be present to add to the atmosphere on the day.
This is a very special BYO picnic and drinks day.
Primrose and Roy Fox, our hosts and the owners of The Missions, will again provide a complimentary afternoon tea in the large purpose built function centre/hanger near the house from 2 pm onwards.
Entry fees will be donated to the Salvation Army Children’s Christmas Appeal and the Woman’s Refuge.
So mark the date down on your calendar, arrive at The Missions about 10.30am and enjoy a great day out.
Come enjoy the magnificent vintage cars, vintage planes, music and marvellous location.
