Alpine Classic offers something for everyone this November

November 4th and 5th 2017 will be the 18th running of one of the most noteworthy and enduring tarmac navigation rally events on the Australian motor sport calendar.

The 18 year history of this event is proof of its enduring appeal to classic car enthusiasts who like to get out and enjoy some off the highway country road motoring pleasures.

Of course, being a navigation rally for a crew of two or more people per car, we can’t tell you in detail exactly where the event will be going, but we can tell you that this event offers a weekend of value-for-money classic car motoring experience, amongst a field of up to 80 vehicles.

Organised by the Classic Rally Club as part of its annual event series, the Alpine Classic is an event that is open to all types of cars (although classic cars are preferred) and crews who want to savour the navigation style of rallying on public roads like it was back in the 1950s and ‘60s.

Catering for all levels of experience and challenge this year, the event will have the four following entry categories:

Social Tour which, although not a competition category, still provides a chance to get out on scenic roads in your car, and enjoy the company of fellow enthusiasts, without the challenge of navigational tasks, ideal for first timers.

Tour category, a competition which features simple route chart instructions, which is also popular with less experienced crews, but it offers real competition and boasting rights after the event.

Apprentice category, a competition which is for those crews who like the challenge of finding the correct route using more comprehensive map interpretation and navigation skills with some helpful hints provided by the event organisers.

The most challenging level of competition for those experienced crews who revel in matching wits with the event organisers is the Masters category (no helpful hints for those crews….).

There’s a category to suit everyone.

Starting and ending in Yass, overnight Saturday will be in Tumut. The entry fee for a crew of two, including all maps, event instructions, Saturday night accommodation, breakfast and lunch both days, and a deluxe Saturday dinner is only $500, probably the best value per minute motor sport weekend you can find anywhere.
