The 11th Anniversary RACV Fly the Flag Tour crosses western Victoria on a seven-day pilgrimage to more than a dozen country towns, following in the wheel tracks of the first rally held by the RACV’s founders in 1904.

More than 200 veteran, vintage, classic and modern classic vehicles, with a combined value of more than $10 million, leaves for Warrnambool from the Ultima Reception Centre in Keilor on March 17.

The 1268km tour will retrace parts of the first motoring tour undertaken by RACV founders when they toured to their pastoral properties in the Western District in 1904.

Timboon man Peter Pope said he was excited to take his wife Suzanne along for the rally in his 1948 Riley RM.

“It’ll be great, as long as we make the distance,” he told The Standard.

“I bought the car about five years ago and don’t take it to shows.

“I just use it for a bit of social driving, so this rally will give it a good run.”

As part of a two-day visit, participants will attend the RACV Community Foundation auction and dinner at the Warrnambool Greyhound Racing Club.

The vehicles will be on display at Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum before heading off through Tower Hill, Koroit, Port Fairy, Portland and Nelson to Mount Gambier.

The rally will return to the south-west for a stay at Hamilton, with a morning vehicle display at the Hamilton Showgrounds on March 22.

RACV motoring interests manager Brian Kelly said in early days motoring enthusiasts travelled in convoys across unsealed tracks through regional districts of Victoria.

“This tour is the 11th in a series of historic motoring tours of Victoria run by RACV to support and celebrate historic motoring in Victoria” he said.
