Members of the Kyabram Lions Club with Chris and Sheryl Hatch.

WHETHER you’re a local or an import, you’re welcome at the upcoming Legends of the Mountain event.

Chris and Sheryl Hatch and the Kyabram Lions Club are hitting the red line getting everything organised for the weekend-long event that will see revheads from far and wide converge on Kyabram.

The event will kick off on Saturday, February 24 for an evening with Bathurst legends Dick Johnson and John Bowe.

Lewis Brock and Holden manager of motorsport Joe Felice will also share stories with Sale of the Century’s Glenn Ridge currently booked as MC.

On Sunday is a show and shine event, where everyone’s invited to show off their wheels.

Sheryl Hatch said the response has been overwhelming from car clubs in Victoria and beyond.

“We’re estimating around 200-300 cars coming along but it really will depend on the weather,” she said.

“Car clubs have confirmed with us they’re coming but as to how many cars they’ll have with them — we just don’t know.”

The show and shine will also feature House of Muscle and Peter Brock Merchandise trucks for your purchasing pleasure.

“We have Bathurst originals, cars Brocky drove as well as the sister cars from the team,” she said.

“It’s a bit crazy how they all want to come along to a little Kyabram event.

‘‘So this event is huge for the town and will really put us on the map. And all proceeds go to local charity.’’

Chris and Sheryl said Jayell Ford, Thompson Holden, Campaspe Shire, Corporate Shadows, Mr Embroidery and Advanced Computing were among the numerous sponsors.

The evening with Bathurst legends will be held on Saturday, February 24 at 6.30pm at the Kyabram Bocce Club.

Sunday’s show and shine will be held at the Kyabram Showgrounds on February 25 from 8am to 2pm.

Entry is $85 per head for both Saturday and Sunday events. Limited tickets are available for Saturday evening, so book soon.

Entry for Sunday is $10 per car.
