THE Bay to Birdwood Run vintage vehi-
cles rally is set to take an alternative route
when it roars into life in September.
This year the route has changed to accom-
modate the 1300 participating vintage, vet-
eran and early classic vehicles that are antici-
pated to register for the event.
Starting at Adelaide Shores, West Beach, the
vehicles will journey toward Greenhill Road,
around the city fringe and along North East
It will then take a different direction, turn-
ing right onto Grand Junction Road and
heading up to Houghton and back through
Inglewood, before finishing at its home of 34
years -- the National Motor Museum in Bird-
"We have listened to the feedback provided
by entrants and this year's route is almost going
back to the original, with a slight change," Bay
to Birdwood chairman Martin Haese said.
"This is to accommodate the needs of the
older vehicles and striking a balance between
managing escalating traffic management costs
and more traffic on the roads."
Around 70,000 spectators are expected to
line the 70-kilometre route, which this year
celebrates vehicles manufactured before 1956
and fashions of the decades leading up to it.
This year's Bay to Birdwood Run also pays
tribute to 100 years of military motoring his-
tory, and vehicles will be waved off by Austral-
ia's legendary flag-waver, Glen Dix.
Expect to see a spectacular procession of
military motoring history with vehicles like
the Ford Blitz Gun Tractor and the 1943
Chevrolet C15 Blitz Radio Van.
The run will be held on Sunday, September
28.To enter your pre-1956 vehicle into this
year's Bay to Birdwood Run, visit baytobird-
wood.com.au or call 8258 6547. Entries close
on August 8.

Bay to Birdwood's different route THE RAA is reminding motorists to use
headlights to make their vehicles easily
visible while on the road this winter.
With days becoming darker earlier during
the colder months, the RAA recommends
motorists light up to be seen on the roads, as
well as when in rainy or foggy conditions.
RAA Senior Manager Road Safety Charles
Mountain said drivers must not get behind
the wheel at night or in hazardous weather
conditions unless their headlights, tail-lights
and number-plate light are operational.
"Dark, rainy or foggy weather conditions
can be quite common at this time of year,
so it's important to drive with caution," he
"In foggy conditions, turn your headlights
on low beam or use fog lights if you have
them. Don't put headlights on high beam
though, as the reflection from the fog actu-
ally makes it harder to see."
Mr Mountain reminded motorists that
you can only use your fog lights when you
are experiencing the appropriate conditions.
In other periods of low visibility, head-
lights should be used instead.
