IN just 45 minutes, volunteers from Variety the Children's Charity had cooked up 200 bacon and egg rolls to give to hungry race fans on a chilly Saturday morning at Mount Panorama.
The charity has had a long association with Supercars and the Great Race, eventually becoming the official charity for the event.
"We started out 14 years ago cooking breakfast for the volunteer marshals and that evolved to allow us to do buckets on the gate for Variety the Children's Charity," organiser Kevin Carter said.
Seven years later, they were given a stall in Merchandise Alley to raise further funds for the charity with a raffle auctioning off signed memorabilia from teams.
In 2019, the partnership extended further to a charity breakfast for fans outside the front of the National Motor Racing Museum.
Mr Carter said that Supercars asked the charity volunteers to cook up 200 bacon and egg rolls, which they did following their usual marshals breakfast.
"They're all finished by 6.30am, then we did this [charity breakfast] after that; it only took about 45 minutes to cook and wrap," he said.
Fans who attended the breakfast were able to get a bacon and egg roll for a gold coin donation, with all the money going to Variety.
"It looks after disabled and sick kids from the age of 0 to 18 and, when I'm on the gate,I sometimes use the expression that 'Variety is the charity that you hope to never use', because it means you have a sick kid," Mr Carter said.

Another element to to charity breakfast was a visit from two drivers who will be in the Great Race on Saturday, Michael Caruso and James Moffat.
They will co-drive for Tickford guys Cameron Waters and Chaz Mostert respectively.
They spoke to fans about their weekend so far and shared a few behind-the-scenes stories.
