Special Guests

 Special Guests this year will include:

 

RAUNO AALTONEN, and MINI

Well-known as the original “Flying Finn” of motorsports, Rauno Aaltonen was born in Turku, Finland in 1938. Rauno competed in his first ever motor race at the helm of a speedboat in 1951, at the tender age of 12. By the time he was 20, Rauno had won the Finnish Speed Boat Championship seven times, and also brought home the Scandinavian Championship. Since then, he has gone on to compete across a plethora of motorsports, from rally car driving to motorcycle speedway and road racing. Whatever the vehicle, Rauno Aaltonen can drive it fast, and drive it well.

Rauno has been part of MINI’s story since the very early years. In 1962 Rauno joined the MINI Works Team. Alongside Co-driver Tony Ambrose, he drove his MINI Cooper to 5th overall and 3rd in class at the RAC International Rally of Great Britain. In 1963, he drove a MINI Cooper to third overall (and first in class) at the Monte Carlo Rally. In 1965, Rauno won the European Rally Championship. In 1966, Rauno and his Australian Co-Driver Bob Holden came first overall in the Gallagher 500 at Mount Panorama in New South Wales.

LINDA JACKSON – CEO, CITROËN

It takes a special leader to steer an iconic brand through a complete reposition, let alone a marque that is 100 years young – but that’s what attracted Linda Jackson to Citroën when she accepted the role of Chief Executive Officer in 2014.

40 odd years on since her first automotive role as a finance clerk with Jaguar, Linda is recognised as one of the most influential executives in the global automotive industry.

Speaking of her appointment in 2014, PSA (Citroën’s parent company) chief Carlos Tavares stated simply that he had “appointed the best person available” to run the company.

Proving his endorsement correct, in 2018 Linda was recognised as Autocar Magazines most influential woman in the motor industry!

  

LUCIO CESARIO

Lucio’s career started back in 1981, when he raced and won many club events with a Formula 2 Cheetah Mk6. Midway into 1981 his father purchased Lucio a Ralt RT3 to compete in the last two rounds of the Australian Formula 2 Championships, which he won.
He then engraved his name on the 1982 Australian Formula 2 Championships trophy with the Ralt RT3, starting on pole position for every race and then winning all the races as well!
This all led to an invitation to drive Allan Moffat’s Mazda RX7 Touring Car, after competing for just a year and a half in motor racing, sharing with motorcycle legend Gregg Hansford, participated in the Endurance events at Sandown and Bathurst.

 

 

PETER BRIGGS

Few marques attract such a devoted band of followers as Bentley. 100 years ago, Bentley Motors was created by Walter Owen (WO) Bentley to build a high quality sporting car without peer.
Perth car collector, Peter Briggs, has had a long term love affair with the Bentley marque. His first Bentley was formerly owned by the Australian Governor General Lord Casey and since then he has owned a number of Walter Owen’s finest including a Blower Bentley, an R Type with a unique shooting brake body and a Bentley 4.25L bodied in the style of Franay of Paris.
He is, perhaps, better known as the owner of one of the most important Bentleys in the world. It is the first Bentley to race at the Le Mans 24 Hour race!

Come by the stage to meet our special guests!
