Teams make themselves heard through Clare's main street

If you were out and about in Clare's main street yesterday, Thursday, you might've heard a number of Variety Vic Bash cars make some noise.

All 94 of them had just visited O'Leary Walker Wines for lunch and were making their way north and then across to Whyalla for day three, August 22, of their trek.

The vehicles and their crews of about 330 people stopped in at the winery where owners David O'Leary and Nick Walker donated a six litre bottle of 2005 Claire Reserve, valued at $1000, for the charity to auction off.

O'Leary Walker Wines' Cellar Door and Events Manager Chelsea Saint welcomed the guests and said it was a great opportunity for the winery to support such a worthy cause.

"It's one of those iconic events that everyone should get behind," Chelsea said.

Cocktail food, drinks and live music greeted the participants before they packed up and headed to Whyalla.

From Wyndham Vale to Geraldton - east to west coasts - the teams will travel about 5102km in total and pass through 20 towns along the way. For more information visit
