To officially launch our partnership with the Benalla Auto Club we're collaborating to bring you an event to end the year with fantastic driving opportunities and a gala dinner to top it all off. 

Date: Saturday 14th December 2019

The day: will comprise of two parts: the drive and Winton track time and the gala dinner


The Drive

Our final social drive of the year will be a regional drive starting in Yarra Glen and driving to Winton Raceway. As with our usual format we'll start with coffee and briefing at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie carpark. From there we'll wind our way through the iconic King Valley roads before making our way to Winton Raceway

Lunch will be held in the King Valley. We're finalising the arrangements and will let you know the menu and price as soon as it's confirmed. If you're joining this group lunch please book for the number of meals required upon registration, we will be in touch with finalised details shortly and to arrange payment. 

As a special treat for our community Winton Raceway is being opened up for the DAD group. We'll have some dedicated drive time on the marshalled track to experience this iconic location. 

Please note: Our time at Winton isn't for full speed racing. It will be held under tour conditions and regulated by the raceway marshalls. Roll cages are not required. We'll be cruising the track in the same cars we drive up in, so they need to be looked after! Winton have a supply of helmets for our drivers, we encourage you to bring your own if you have one. 

Gala Dinner

The Benalla Auto Club's annual gala dinner is their event of the year, and DAD is now the official charity partner. The event includes a lovely catered dinner and entertainment, plus excellent auction items with proceeds being donated DAD's work to support mental wellness through the freedom of driving. 

Dinner will be held in the function rooms at Winton Raceway, there will be sufficient time between the track time and dinner to refresh yourself and get gala ready.

The cost of dinner is $80, with all proceeds being generously donated to DAD.
