Here is a summary of the 2015 event:
The organisers were pleased to find that, thanks to good publicity, quite a number of cars were entered by people who do not belong to any motor club, and a really eclectic assortment of classic cars was seen at the Century City start, ranging from a few veterans to 70’s modern classics. Crossley and Webb, purveyors of fine classic cars sponsored the event together with Century City and provided each entrant with a commemorative cap as well as competitor numbers and stickers for the cars.
The run ended at Killarney circuit where the WPMC had opened the circuit for the competitors to do a couple of parade laps and had provided refreshments and an enjoyable lunch in their clubhouse.

Highest combined age of driver and car, John Brewster, 85 years old driving the CHC 1902 Wolseley; total 198 years
Greatest age difference where the driver is younger than the car: Rob Middelmann, 72 years old driving a 1912 EMF 30 Roadster- 31 years
A special award was made to Peter Hyslop, 87 years old driving his beautifully restored 87 year old Falcon-Knight , totalling 174 years.
