A unique chapter of Australia’s motoring history opens up when the All State run is on. The event is bi-annual held over Easter, and run by a different EH Club from a different Australian state or territory each year.
As these cars restored, original and modified drive out of Australia’s history and into the public eye, they seem to mesmerise crowds with their rough-edged style and no-nonsense charm. From the many quiet lugga lugga stock motors, to street cars to wild V8’s.With the thunder of raw horsepower a constant background, drivers put their machines through events such as the Go to Whoa and Spear a Spud, in addition to the ever popular burnout competition. A slippery track is little deterrence to the drivers, who delight in sending their cars sideways through right angled turns at high speeds. This is all done under strict rules and guidelines of course. A Show ‘n’ Shine and a dinner night are also held, and the emphasis of the whole weekend is a social and family atmosphere.
Being an event where the host club invites members of the other EJ-EH clubs around Australia, and not a ‘Nationals’, the EH All State Run has a less competitive nature and focuses more on the actual social atmosphere.
