Today I drove to a vantage spot in the southern Adelaide Hills to watch the second stage of this year's Classic Adelaide Rally. This event, in its twelfth year, attracted over 200 entrants from all states of Australia and some from overseas.
On each day there are several closed road special stages where the cars in some categories are timed; the remaining driving each day is under touring conditions where cars drive along with the general public.
The Classic Adelaide Rally is held over four days (19th - 23rd November). The vehicles, which must have been build prior to 1990, travel over 1000 kilometres. The field includes classic makes like Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, BMW, Lotus, Alfa Romeo, MG, Bugatti, Austin-Healey and Aston Martin. Also are Australian vehicles, Fords and Holdens, and others from Asia and America.
