A virtual Bay to Birdwood is on this Sunday.

While the event is usually a great opportunity to get out and about to watch the parade of historic motoring, this year it is all online and on TV to avoid breaching COVID-19 rules.

National Motor Museum Director, Paul Rees said activities and content will go live via the Bay to Birdwood website on Sunday, including a variety of documentaries, interviews with award-winning entrants, glimpses behind the scenes with the Bay to Birdwood team, and games to keep everyone entertained.

“We will take people Behind the Bay to Birdwood with the premiere of the Life in the Past Lane documentary at 8 pm on Channel 44 and CTV Plus, showcasing the last 40 years of the Bay to Birdwood,” Paul Reese said.

“We’ve also got interviews with entrants who were registered to participate in the 2021 event, as well as a mini-documentary series called Behind the Wheel – the people of the Bay to Birdwood. "

All content for Behind the Bay to Birdwood will go live on Sunday 26 September via the Bay to Birdwood website with the premiere of Life in the Past Lane at 8 pm on Channel 44 in Adelaide and 8.30 pm on Channel 31 in Melbourne as well as on CTV Plus: www.baytobirdwood.history.sa.gov.au
