Event Description


The Vespa Club of Melbourne has participated in the Maling Road Auto Classico event in Canterbury since its inception four years ago. Maling Road is an historical precinct in Canterbury that has a unique village atmosphere. The street will be closed for this popular event. All members are welcome to come along - its free! However for club members who own classic geared Vespas, here is a chance to polish up your pride and joy and to display it amongst the finest automobiles ever made.


Sunday 18 August 2019. 

Ride directly to Maling Road: Arrive before 9:30 AM and look for David and the club banner.

Or join a Ride in: If it suits you, join us for a group ride there. We are meeting from 8.30 am at Dr Morse Cafe, 274 Johnston St, Abbotsford. >>MAP. It is Victoria Park Station, so just park behind the pillars. Free coffee courtesy of the club and depart at 9.30 AM bound for Maling Rd.

VCM Display Areas at Autoclassico:

We have two display areas.

Area 1 is our prime display site on the corner of Bryson Street in the middle of the Maling Road action. Its in front of the planter boxes outside the local IGA. This will be reserved for 7-9 scooters, classics only please. Look for the VCM banner.

Area 2 is opposite in the laneway alongside "Pocket of Lollies." Space for 7-10 scooters. Please allow older Vespas to park closest to Maling Road with autos parking nearer to the station.

Bump in time is between 9:00-9:30am. Because of the manoeuvring required, cars will have priority to park first and then scooters. 

Catch up with fellow scooters owners for a chat over coffee then stroll along Maling Road to admire the numerous motorcycles and automobiles on display, many of them very rare and expensive.

Hi Tim, thanks for your message. Either of those scooters would be great to display. Perhaps the older ‘59 Lamy would turn heads. Thanks for your support. Keep an eye out on this event page for details posted during the week of how and when to enter our display area, David

I would like to attend the Maling Road Event.

Happy to bring the '72 Rally 200.  Could also bring the '59 Lambretta.

If you are attending next Sunday for the MotoClassica please mark your attendance so we can let the organisers know how much parking space we will need.  Thank you.
