    The Bay to Birdwood is the largest, continually held motoring event for veteran, vintage and classic vehicles held anywhere in the world.

    Save The Date

    The next Bay to Birdwood will held on Sunday 24th September 2017, and will be open to classic vehicles of all types built between 1st Jan 1956 and 31st Dec 1981.

    The Bay to Birdwood for 2017 is an event is for Classic vehicles, and will take place on Sunday 24 September.

    Entries will be open to all original cars, motorcycles, vans, trucks and commercial vehicles built on or after 1 January 1956 and on or before 31 December 1981.

    The inaugural Bay to Birdwood was held in 1980 and the event has since become a fixture on the South Australian events calendar. The principal stakeholders of the Bay to Birdwood are the National Motor Museum, a Museum of History SA (NMM) and the Federation of Historic Motoring Clubs (SA) Inc (FHMCSA) and the event’s success can be attributed to vision and ongoing commitment of those key organisations.

    As a not- for-profit community event, the Bay to Birdwood also relies on the time, dedication and expertise of a large contingent of volunteers who share a mutual passion for the preservation, promotion, enjoyment and sustainability of the historic vehicle movement in South Australia.

    The Apex Festival is back on the 9-10 May 2015!


    A unique festival of Show n' Go Go Go!

    This is not a static show! The Lydden Hill Race Circuit ( just 10mins from the Dover International Ferry & Tunnel Ports - ideal for our European visitors! ) will once again be the fantastic venue for the events and entertainment over the weekend, where YOU can be part of the on track spectacle!
    Stacks Image 1365
    The race circuit is the focal point for the weekends activities with racing, drifting, exhibition features, demo cars from all over Europe, and plenty of trackday sessions where YOU can take your vehicle (whatever it may be!) out on the track for some safe, fast fun. There will be the hugely popular Circuit Parade laps for everyone to join in, where you can literally take your ride and passengers out on the track for some fantastic photo opportunities circumnavigating the same track you have just seen the race cars tearing up the tarmac on!
    Stacks Image 1369
    Fancy a race pace passenger ride? Many of the demo cars and drift cars will be offering sessions where you can have a thrilling ride around the circuit - albeit fast laps in a racer or sideways antics in a drift car!
    Stacks Image 1373
    There is plenty to keep you occupied all day and evening, with a big Show n Shine arena, Car displays and features, BMX displays, an open paddock to explore, and of course the popular Drive-in Movie which kicks off the Saturday nite entertainment which also includes a Silent Disco - back by popular demand as it was insane fun last year!
    Stacks Image 1377
    Catering will be by independents for all you ‘foodies’ who like great quality grub..
    A la Margarida - Delicious Hot Portuguese food produced locally sourced quality ingredients
    Flaming Great Pizza's - Hand Crafted, Wood Fired Gourmet Pizzas
    Monkshood Coffee - Fresh Coffee, Tea and Snacks all served from classic VW Buses
    Simply Thai - Authentic Thai Cuisine cooked fresh on site
    The Split Screen Baker - Fresh Milkshakes and Award Winning Cakes presented in a '65 VW Panel Van
    Tin Can Toaster - Genuine Gourmet Burgers, Hotdogs & Wedges served from a retro AirStream Trailer
    Westlands Breakfast - Local farm sourced Bacon / Sausage Doorstep Sandwiches
    Westlands BBQ - Hog Roast Pulled Pork, slow roasted in their unique Steam Engine broiler
    Westlands Baked Potatoes - Homemade Chilli & Jacket Potatoes from locally sourced ingredients
    Westlands Crepes - Sweet and Savoury authentic crepes
    Jason's Soft Ice Cream - Served from a retro Ice Cream Van
    PitStop Cafe - Lydden Hill's resident outlet

    If you haven’t been to Lydden Hill before, you are in for a visual and aural treat! There are spectacular views of the entire circuit from virtually everywhere in the venue. You have the chance to park around the perimeter of the track itself too, so not to miss a moment of the action!
    Stacks Image 1381
    We're proud to present a truly family friendly event, yes that includes well behaved family dogs too, which are welcomed to the event! (typical pet etiquette rules apply). the vast majority of kids activities are 100% FREE all weekend - families love the fact that the kids zone is ideally placed so you can keep one eye on the kids and the other on all the action.. so it's smiles all round! This year we will have even more FREE fun activities and welcome distractions for our young guests.

    This year all under 16's go FREE* with every pre-booked e-Ticket - these are only available online in advance.

    *Every Adult advanced booked e-Ticket includes free admission for up to 3 under 16's per paying adult. This exclusive offer is only available for pre-booked e-Tickets and not available on the day, where full price tickets will be applicable.

    PRE-CHECKIN:
    To be announced.

    Great news! Collin Gyenes, president of Techtonics in Sheridan, Oregon, and builder of the worlds fastest 36hp engine, Darrell Vittones, might mite Ghia motor, has just advised us about a new one half mile land speed racing event that will be held later this summer at the McMinnville, Oregon, airport August 22nd and 23rd. This event will be eligible for 36hp and VW Big Block record recognition.

    WHAT TO BRING:
    STANDARD DRIVERS:
    It is mandatory to bring a helmet (Snell 2000+)
    Each participant is required to completely fill out and sign a waiver/self tech form (will be posted here)
    All vehicles attempting to go over 180MPH are required to do 2 solo passes at 180MPH, observed by tech staff, to ensure safety and stability. Only after will they be approved to go 180+mph.
    All vehicles that run over 199MPH require a mounted fire extinguisher, 4-point roll cage, and fire jacket.
    We recommend additional safety equipment FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS including but not limited to: Roll bar or full cage, fire suit and clothing/gloves, fire suppression system, hans or similar type of restraint for neck protection, arm restraints or window net
    You are responsible for ensuring the safety and capabilities of your car at this event
    All convertibles require roll over protection: either factory or an aftermarket roll bar

    TROPHY COMPETITORS:
    Cars must meet individual tech inspection to insure their safety for the competition. There are also qualifying requirements. *Although it is not required, it is HIGHLY recommended for Sunday roll race competitors to participate Saturday to qualify your vehicle so as not to take up time or be rushed on Sunday*

    LICENSING/TECH RULES (AUTO):
    CARS EXCEEDING 180+MPH:
    It is required that all cars aiming to trap over 180+ go through our own independent tech inspection in addition to filling out your self tech form. This will occur on grid either before your first run or before your second run.
    To be licensed to go 180+mph, each driver must do two solo passes (one in each lane) between 170mph and 180 mph. This is to ensure that you can do a safe pass at that speed as observed by our staff. Once we see you have accomplished two safe passes, we will issue you a wristband licensing you to go over 180+mph.
    Qualifying for a license on Saturday will be good for both days of the event.
    Licenses issued in our records to drivers at any previous Shift-S3ctor events will carry over. You do not need to go through licensing again if you already did at the last event, your car will still need to pass tech inspection. At our discretion, we may issue provisional licenses for certain individuals we have seen at past events accomplish these requirements already.
    If you exceed 180MPH with a car that has not been through our tech inspection and/or you are not licensed to go over 180MPH, you will be restricted to sub 180MPH. If you continue to go beyond that, you will be removed from the event without refund.

    CARS EXCEEDING 199+MPH:
    Cars exceeding 199+ still must meet the 180+ licensing and tech requirements set forth above.
    Additionally, cars exceeding 199+ MPH require a mounted fire extinguisher, 4-point roll cage, and fire jacket.
    Again, we highly suggest additional safety gear such as a HANS Device, full race suit, fire suppression system, and full cage.


    LICENSING/TECH RULES (MOTORCYCLE):
    Motorcycles are permitted to do solo passes, as well as race other motorcycles. Motorcycles may not race cars for this event.
    MOTORCYCLE SAFETY REQUIREMENTS:
    Clothing and Gear:
    Helmets must be full face, rated Snell M2005 or newer, with appropriate stickers. Shell, liner, and strap must be in sound condition. Shatterproof shields required with adequate visibility.
    Full leather racing suits are required. Leather gloves must be worn with no rips, tears, or openings other than breathing holes. Leather motorcycle boots must be worn and must cover higher than the ankle.
    Equipment:
    Tires rated for top speed of motorcycle.
    Brakes, both front and rear, must be fully functional and in proper working order.
    Engine Kill Switch: Lanyard-style kill switch that kills all power in the event of a rider falling off.
    Breather Hoses: Crankcase breather hoses must run into a catch tank or into the air box.
    Steering Damper required for speeds greater than 140mph.
    Chains and Chain guard: Drive chains must have master link clip safety wired or silicone. Metal chain guard is required.

    ADDITIONAL NOTES:
    RAIN POLICY:
    The event will proceed rain or shine and will run based on the safety of conditions.

    REFUND POLICY:
    There will be NO REFUNDS issued.
    Mechanical malfunctions or catastrophic failures will not allow for refunds either.
