DESCRIPTION:

The cruise commences from Berkeley Street, Carlton (the quiet laneway behind City Ford). Once all cars are assembled at 0930, a short driver's brief will be given then cruise to Gate 10, Grattan Street, The University of Melbourne and meet security for an escort within the campus to the Southern Car Park on Wilson Avenue which is Main Force Patrol's underground garage where Max's black on black Pursuit Special is first seen. Then the cruise proceeds on a detailed route visiting twenty three filming locations of this iconic Australian film. Lunch break is out West in the small township of Little River for a bar meal at The Little River Hotel. After more scenic cruising and location visits, the route culminates near Sunbury then it's a short stint to McDonald's, corner Mickleham Road and International Drive, Tullamarine, for farewells. After that, it's an easy cruise back to your place of residence. All up the route is 200 km.

A detailed map with commentary and screen shots from the film will be provided to all participants (as per the Google Maps link below) but you are encouraged to view the film prior to attending the cruise so the locations are fresh in your memory.

Last year's cruise :drivingalong:

BRING:

CB Radio (optional), Camera, Sunnies, Smiles.

RULES:

1. Obey all laws whilst on the cruise; this means no speeding, no overtaking over double lines (no matter how safe you think it may be), etc...

2. There is a designated cruise leader who will lead the way and set the correct pace for all cruise members.

3. Use the Buddy system - always make sure you can see the car behind you. This will give people behind you an indication on where to turn to make sure nobody gets lost.

4. CB Radios - if you don't have one, follow the maps and directions given out. It is highly recommended to have CB as it

enhances the enjoyment of the cruise being able to hear about road hazards and join in on the social chatter.

5. Please turn up to the meeting points with sufficient fuel in your tank and allow enough time before the designated departure time.

6. Onus is on the owner/driver to ensure their vehicle is safe to drive on public roads and meets State road traffic authority laws.

7. Please ensure you have a contingency plan if you have a breakdown or unnecessarily delayed. e.g. Roadside Assistance or a mate in another car who is willing to stay with you if necessary.

8. If you wish to post this cruise up on any other social media site e.g. facebook, myspace, twitter - please obtain permission from the Cruise Controller/Mod organising the cruise first.

9. By attending this cruise you agree not to hold FordXR6Turbo.com, it's Administrators, Moderators, Cruise Controllers, or Owner responsible / liable for any damage and / or grief sustained (simply; you are responsible for your own actions).

Nine cars last year was a pretty good effort. Can't wait for that steak sandwich at Little River again!
