After 39 years, the name Bay to Birdwood is known to car enthusiasts the world over, and this year for the first time they will be able to watch the rally live with a free live stream on Advertiser.com.au.
From 8.30am-11.30am on Sunday, come back to this story or the Advertiser.com.au homepage to watch the live stream of the 40th Bay to Birdwood, provided in partnership with the National Motor Museum and Channel 44.
COVID-19 crowd restrictions mean the event won’t attract the usual crowd of 100,000 spectators – but potentially more people than ever before will be able to watch the event online around the world.
Spectators will still be allowed to line the 72km route, but will be excluded from the usual start and finish line revelry.
The live stream will include dashcam footage, crosses to participants in vehicles, drone coverage following the route and messages from interstate and overseas enthusiasts who couldn’t make the event due to COVID-19.
Join us on Advertiser.com.au for all the action and up-close vision of more than 1600 historic cars, archival footage from 40 years of Bay to Birdwood fun along with interviews and commentary from special guests and motoring experts and enthusiasts. See you on Sunday!
At the National Motor Museum, one of Australian motoring history’s rarest finds is being carefully restored.
