The Porsche 962 is one of the most successful Group C racing prototypes ever built. Following its success on the racing circuit, a number of companies thought it would be a great idea to turn it into a road car as well—in exchange for a few million bucks. After all, it was the 1990s, and pretty much anything seemed possible.

Bay to Birdwood 2021 cancelled.
You have probably heard the news this week that we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Bay to Birdwood. The official communication is below. Hopefully we will see you in 2022.
The 2021 Bay to Birdwood – one of the world’s great historic motoring events – cannot take place as originally planned this year. The team at the History Trust of South Australia’s National Motor Museum have worked tirelessly to prepare for a safe, fun and memorable event so we are disappointed that some 1,500 entrants will not be able to participate in the usual 72km journey from West Beach to the National Motor Museum in Birdwood. We are also disappointed that tens of thousands of South Australians will not be able to line the route to watch these amazing vehicles.
While we are saddened that we will not be able to host thousands of entrants, their families and their friends on the grounds of the National Motor Museum, we understand that helping to keep South Australians safe is our most important job right now. COVID-19 continues to affect how we can run events safely and the Bay to Birdwood is no exception. New SA Health COVID management requirements mean we expect that the Bay to Birdwood event will be significantly impacted with reduced public and entrant participation. This makes running the Bay to Birdwood unviable in its current form in 2021, particularly at this late stage with only five weeks to go.
Although we will not have our usual parade of historic vehicles on Sunday 26 September, we are working hard to create an event that still highlights some of the wonderful vehicles that were originally taking part in the 2021 event. We plan to have a range of Bay to Birdwood activities that can be enjoyed from home and all taking place on 26 September. Visit our facebook page or website in coming weeks to check the online program.
