The Shannon's Citycruise is back
6 November 2012
Everyone agrees that last year’s Citycruise was a roaring success, as we knew it would be. After all, who could resist the temptation to check out Australia’s best street machines rolling through the nation’s capital?
The cars were awesome, and more than 20,000 Canberrans lined Northbourne Ave to kick off the Nats Chrome Jubilee.
So, after some careful negotiating with ACT Police and other state bodies, the Citycruise is even better to help launch Summernats 26. And this year, Shannon's Insurance have come on board as the Citycruise sponsor.
How's it going to be better?
Well for starters we’re getting special permission for louder and wilder machinery to cruise down Northbourne Avenue, so once again Canberra will rumble to the rhythm of a blown big block V8.
So who gets to go?
Well ‘Don’t call us, we’ll call you’. We’ll be carefully whittling down a huge list of hopefuls to find just 200 perfect cars for the cruise, and that will include around 25 or so ‘wild machines’ to add a bit of spice to the mix. We're making the final decision by November 12, and we'll let you know if you're in by December 10.
But you can still be involved. Find a good position somewhere along Northbourne Avenue and cheer on your favourite streeters. The Shannons Citycruise starts Thursday 3rd at noon and runs from Exhibition Park to the City Circle and back.
