McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic Charity Dinner
NOTE : We are waiting on confirmation of our Guest Speaker for 2020
2019 SPECIAL GUEST WAS JOHN BOWE
The 2019 Charity Dinner was an exciting night of fine food and wine with plenty of giveaway’s, an auction and a fantastic guest speaker with part proceeds from this evening going to McLaren Vale and District War Memorial Hospital and the local CFS units of McLaren Vale and McLaren Flat.
Born in Devonport, Tasmania, Motorsport Hall of Fame inductee, John Bowe has been a prominent motorsport champion for over four decades.
The only Australian driver to win six national championships in four different categories, Bowe is twice a Bathurst 1000 winner [with Dick Johnson] and Australian Touring Car Champion in 1995.
Still racing, JB has won five Touring Car Masters championships between 2011-2016 and in all, he holds the overall Australian records for most race wins, pol
e positions and fastest laps in more than 1,100 races entered.
JB won the Australian Drivers Championship in 1984 [Ralt RT4] and 1985 and the Australian Sports Car Championship in 1986.
His career includes str
ong links with South Australia. In 1971 JB took the Tasmanian Formula Vee title in an Elfin after which he raced Formula 5000 as a member of Ansett Team Ansett. His 1986 sports car title was won emphatically driving the locally designed and built Veskanda.
Always colourful, often controversial, supportive of his sponsors and engaging with his fans, John Bowe isn’t slowing down. Squeezed between racing engagements, we are very fortunate to have his company for the 2019 McLaren Vale Vintage & Classic.
