Mad Max fans, riders and motoring enthusiasts are invited to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the cult Australian dystopian film with a big party in February 2019.
Over the past couple of years, there have been several successful Mad Max motorcycle festivals including the March 2017 Wanted Dead or Alive Tour organised by the South Of Heaven Social Motorcycle Club.
Now the club is planning a huge 40th anniversary event, “The Search For Max”, at Clunes, Victoria, on February 2, 2019.
Club spokesman Mark Burke says they are working a a number of the film’s actors and stunt riders to “build an unforgettable moment that will leave Mad Max fans with many stories and hopefully many signatures”.
“We aim to seek out the original cast of Mad Max plus seek others from the trilogy,” he says.
They are in the early stages of planning, but Mark says there will be movie-themed vehicles, costumed participants, plenty of entertainment, food and drinks, and “most importantly we’ll bring about the feeling of Mad Max mania”.
Admission prices and ticket sales have not yet been decided, but will be limited and include camping.
Thousands of dollars has been raised at previous events for charities and charities will once again benefit from the 40th anniversary celebrations, Mark says.
Mark says they recently created a union with the Silverton Collective who are a group of enthusiasts of the film series.
“Some own replica vehicles and others dress up like Mad Max characters. Some actually making a career of it,” he says.
