How many cars and people will be part of the Rally?
It's expected that approximately 150 cars will take part in the Classic Adelaide Rally. Each car travels with up to 4 crew members, which means there will be 600+ people at the Yankalilla Memorial Park Oval for the lunch stop.
Will I be able to watch the Rally?
Spectators will be able to see the rally cars up close at the Yankalilla Memorial Park Oval. Residents along the route are encouraged to watch the rally after reading the safe spectating guide on the www.classicadelaide.com.au website. Designated spectator vantage points along the route are yet to be advised.
I'd like my community group or business to get more involved - what do I need to do?
