A convoy of Triumph cars is gearing up for a massive road trip to Wagga in support of The Leisure Company.

About 40 vehicles from the Triumph Car Club will travel from Victoria and Canberra this October 6, stopping off at the Riverina Playhouse car park.

People with a disability will be able to ride in the cars and event coordinator Graeme Oxley said it was about raising support for the community group.

“A lot of these people just don’t get the opportunity to see cars, or go for a ride in a vehicle without a roof,” he said.

“We do the drive annually and thought it would be a good way to support and raise awareness for some local community groups.

“We will drive down Baylis Street then onto Fitzmaurice and will go to the car park area from there.”

The static display of cars will be on for two-and-a-half hours before continuing to Cootamundra for the next big adventure.
