The Round-Up is back – 18th February
As usual, the Renault Round-Up car display is open to all classic and modern Renaults. Unlike last year, we will have fair weather and sunshine this year. We will, promise. Well, we included that in our order at least.
Location this year is the same as last year – the Caribbean Gardens in Scoresby. There are two entrances; one off Ferntree Gully Road less than one km from the Eastlink Tollway exit and another off Stud Road. Below the flyer is a map showing in more detail where the display area is in the Gardens.
Non-RCCV club members are especially welcome to display their car at the Round-Up. It’s the best value car show around – free to display your car and free for everyone to come and view. Apart from the $2.50 Caribbean Gardens charge for vehicle entry to the venue.
But for that $2.50 you get so much more… the Caribbean Gardens is a great family-friendly setting with something for everyone. There’s the market (for the Dads), playground and rides (for the Mums) and, of course, masses of Renaults for the Kids. We’re avoiding the stereotyping this year, or is that just swapping it around?
The Round-Up is supported this year by Alpine Affaire, Berwick Tyrepower, Qualitool and Renault Australia. For this concours event there will be awards for Best Post-2001 Renault, Best Pre-2001 Renault, Best Sporting Renault (covering RS, Alpine and Gordini), People’s Choice and, of course, Best Renault in Show. In addition, we plan to have a door prize and a raffle – you don’t have to be concours competitive to walk away with a prize.
We’re also working on a special treat display which we’ll tell you about later when the concrete starts to set . . .
Cars can arrive from from 8:30am and the show formally starts at 9:30 and runs to around 3pm. Concours award presentation scheduled for 1:30 – 2:00 pm.
