After four days of intense competition and spirited touring, the entire field converges the East End for the East End Finale on Sunday November 28. Greeting the rally field is a street party taking in Rundle Street East, East Terrace, Rundle Road and Rymill Park.
Here the rally winners are lauded with a podium presentation, surrounded by vehicle displays, automotive brand activations, drone racing and kids’ activities. Entry is free and all kids’ activities are free as well.
The recent announcement from the State Government that the state’s borders will open on November 23 is perfect timing for the rally, as all interstate entrants are now able to attend. Some of the country’s top tarmac racers will be visiting SA and competing for a $25,000 prize pool, making the 2021 Adelaide Rally the largest event of its type in the world this year.
The East End Finale will feature 500 cars on display, with a custom car show and car brand displays adding to the massive rally field. Fans are free to wander among the cars on East Terrace and Rundle Street, including exotic supercars, collectable classics and purpose-built tarmac rally cars.
Inside a gated section of Rymill Park, a custom car show from local car culture team Horsepower Crew adds to the high-octane displays from car brands including Audi, Aston Martin, BMW, McLaren, Mercedes-AMG, Hyundai, Subaru and more.
There’s plenty to do for kids of all ages, with remote control drift cars, drifting and racing simulators, slot car racing and face painting all at no cost. Crowds will also be able to watch some of Australia’s best drone racers in action.
It all happens in the vibrant East End, with ample dining and drinking options all around, including a food festival happening in Vardon Avenue.
The whole affair concludes with a fireworks display, capping off an incredible four days of automotive action.
Fans can also see the rally field up close throughout the event, with new spectator stages on each of the four days, including a dedicated Spectator Stage at Stirling on the Saturday.
A 50-page Spectator Guide is available from the Adelaide Rally website: www.adelaiderally.com.au
