CMC – Shannons Sydney Classic 12th AUG 2018

With over 1900 Veteran & Classic vehicles from over 110 clubs on display and on parade, including cars, motorbikes, scooters and military vehicles, police vehicles, ambulances & fire engines this year’s Shannons was spectacular.

Below is a video from an organisation called “Blat Pack” that manufactures and sells apparel and lifestyle printable items that cater specifically to vintage motorcycle and classic motorsports enthusiasts.

On the 12 August 2018 they ran our pop-up store at the Shannon’s CMC Sydney Classic held at Sydney Motorsports Park. While they were there they took the opportunity to record some footage of the event and have added a video blog to their You Tube Channel. In doing this they caught up with some of our members who had some nice things to say about the benefits of being in a car club generally and being in the Renault Car Club specifically.

A thank you from Blat Pack
