On 8 July 2018 you get your chance to again chase the Brass Monkey to a charity breakfast with various options for a return run.

WHAT IS THE BRASS MONKEY ALL ABOUT?

The Brass Monkey is an annual open invitation event and the premier run for roadsters and adventurous sports car enthusiasts out of Sydney. The event is over 20 years old and has attracted up to 250 participants who possess a good sense of adventure and humour for a charity breakfast. The Brass Monkey should be on all enthusiasts’ bucket list if you love a great drive on a cold crisp frosty morn in the middle of winter at your chosen pace through the countryside to start your day. It is point to point social fun run not a cannonball run on public roads.

WHY GET OUT OF BED FOR A DAWN BUSTER RUN?

If you have never been part of the Brass Monkey then don’t be discouraged by a dawn buster run up and over the Southern Highlands to Goulburn because you think it is too early, dark and cold. The Brass Monkey has attracted thousands of motoring enthusiasts over the past 20 years. It is an experience that is worth getting out of bed for at sparrows fart to enjoy a drive in your five in the middle of winter. Appropriately dressed with the roof down (or windows down in a tin top) and heater on, you will participate in a memorable fun run to raise some money for CareFlight, a very worthy cause.

WHAT IS THE ROUTE?

Get to Goulburn whichever way you chose for the Brass Monkey Breakfast serving between 8:00am and 9:00am. The Brass Monkey starts running under the stars at 6:00am from the Eastern Creek M4 Service Centre Westbound heading down the M4, turning off for the M7 on spaghetti junction at the Light Horse Interchange and waits for nobody as it careers down the M31 pursued by a gaggle of roadsters.

If Eastern Creek is not convenient then you can wait anywhere along the route of the M31 after getting away from the Campbelltown urban areas. Show care when jumping on the back of a line of cars travelling at 110kph to allow everyone to enjoy the run across the Southern Highlands where the fields are frost bound and the temperature is often below zero outside the cacoon of your MX-5.

Choose your own route or join from the start of the chase of the Brass Monkey from the truck parking area at Eastern Creek just past McDonalds to run the M4 M7 and M31 (Hume Highway).. Turn off the highway at all the first Goulburn exit to follow the old Hume Highway (Sydney Road) into town and park outside the Goulburn Soldiers Club opposite Belmore Park at 15 Market Street Goulburn.

This event is a point-to-point event with no run leader, route map or runsheet but you are not alone with 100 odd cars travelling the same route to breakfast in a major town well known to most with only two left turns on route (off the highway and to park in Market Street at Goulburn). The BreakFast Club will have members on the road to help out where possible. We recommend that you log the address of the Goulburn Services Club into your GPS, follow the cars in front or take the first turn off and head into town turning left when you hit Belmore Park.

RETURN RUNS

The Breakfast Club will organise two runs home open for all those attending this event who prefer a drive with likeminded members away from the highway for at least part of the way back.

  1. Weather permitting the long way point run of 275km heads east on back roads through Windellama, Nerriga and Nowra then up the coast to Heathcote for all points north to be home mid-afternoon. CAMS Permit No: 218/0807/07
  2. The shorter run of 160km will go north to Marulan for the Southern Highlands Way through Tallong, Bundanoon, Moss Vale and Mittagong for the M4/M7 interchange at Prestons to see you home around lunchtime if the attractions of Berrima, Moss Vale or Bowral do not catch your attention. CAMS Permit No: 218/0807/08
