The second of the 3-round challenge. The contest this year between the clubs is really for second place as the MG club are dominating attendance.
The RCCV is currently lying in fifth place, however that’s likely due to a low turn out for the first round – we can do much better. We won the interclub challenge a few years ago so clearly we’ve got it in us!
So dust off your helmet, fit that extinguisher and get your entry in.
This run has now been done
Our drive day for August is a little different. For starters, it’s on a Saturday – catering for those of you who have your Sunday’s too chock full of other commitments to be able to get to a Sunday run. It’s also at night, well, evening actually – just to try something a bit different. It’s early in the month to avoid clashing with the second round of the Rob Roy Interclub Hillclimb challenge.
The run starts at the Tim Neville Arboretum in
Bayswater Boronia* Ferntree Gully – 98-106 Dorset Rd (see map below).
It finishes… well, you’ll have to follow the driving instructions to find that out. All we’ll say is that it’s north of, and close to, the city. Each car will get an emergency envelope in case you get hopelessly lost or confused.
Before the run itself commences, the club is providing a barbeque dinner. The arboretum is well equipped with BBQs, tables, facilities and a great adventure playground for the kids. It would be well worth your time to have a good look around the place while you are there – be ‘observant’.
We’d like to get an idea of the numbers of likely attendees for catering purposes so please either drop an email or text to Graeme ( ) or Geoff Rasmussen ()
*bonus points for knowing what this is about
8:30am – 1pm
No cost – morning tea provided.
But you need to advise if you’re attending – space is limited. Email "> or phone 03 9555 0133. Entries close Wednesday August 8th

When the French back home get together with friends and family to prepare a meal, when all the chopping, mixing and baking is done, the cook calls out “a la Bouffe” let’s eat, and everyone sits down to enjoy their home cooked meal. That is what you will experience at A La Bouffe an informal, friendly and delicious experience. No pretensions, just good friendly service and delicious food.
When French visitors are feeling home sick for some Poulet Basquaise or Clafoutis this is where they visit. Jacky Frenot and Gabrielle Dewan, owners of A La Bouffe Bar & Bistro, and CCOCA, invite you to come to a little corner of France in the middle of Prahran and South Yarra shopping precinct and indulge your senses with their extensive range of popular French dishes.
The parking situation is not a problem as the COMO car park is available close by as well as COLONNADE carpark at $7.00 for 12 hours.
Cost $35.00 per person. Bookings are essential as numbers are strictly limited.
Superstop is our newest commercial supporter and clearly, an important service provider to the motor industry: they import, distribute, repair and remanufacture anything and everything to do with brakes, clutches and shockers…. and have been doing so from their sole premises at 727-729 Whitehorse Road, Mont Albert for more than 4 decades. That’s service!
Originally known as Bruce Taylor Superstop, the business has been run by a small group of partners since Bruce sold out many years back. One of those partners, Mick Cree, has been with the firm for more than 40 years himself, having arrived after finishing his apprenticeship at Dustings of Bur- wood. Mick is now the Superstop Sales Director.
Like Mick, many of the team of 10 staff at Superstop have come across from other similar backgrounds to apply their specialist skills to the reconditioning, re-machining and remanufacturing of parts across all marques and all ages of cars.
Product lines include those from LuK, Exedy, dba, KYB and Bremtec while the workshop is fully engaged in disc, drum and flywheel machining, brake hose manufacturing, performance clutch upgrades, and cylinder honing and reconditioning.
Together, Mick and his work colleagues have grown Super- stop into one of the largest and most trusted independent brake and clutch specialists in Victoria.
Superstop has 3 vans on the road every day collecting and delivering parts across a 20 kilometre and more radius from Box Hill. Delivery Australia-wide is also available.
Superstop is at 727-729 Whitehorse Road, Mont Albert, 3127
