It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to the patron of our club, and one of the great characters of endurance rallying, Gerry Crown. Gerry passed away in mid-March after a short illness. Our deepest sympathies to Lynn and family. The endurance rally community will always remember you.

Our latest newsletter is now available and details 4 great runs we have lined up in 2021:
The Goldfields Run: 13 - 14 February
NOT the COT Run: 9 - 13 March
Classic Outback Trial: 22 - 28 August
The ERCA Pert to Sydney Classic: 20 October - 8 November
13 - 14 February 2021
ERCA member Harry Hickling has put together a great overnight weekend run for our Victorian Members. The route is through the historic areas of the Goldfields and offers some great driving, no highway sections at all, some good dirt sections, hill climbs, and plenty of scenic open roads.
NOT the COT Run
9 - 13 March 2021
Because the COT has been rescheduled, Michael and Anne Wilkinson have put together an alternative event to fill the void! It's a great 5 day drive around Victoria during the same week the COT would have run. Affectionately known as "NOT the COT", this run will take us east to Paynesville, up through the Victorian High Country to Dinner Plains, on to Beechworth, Milawa, and then back to Melbourne.
The COT has been rescheduled to August 2021, and we understand most of our members who had committed to the March COT are planning to do the August event - which is great! Once again we are planning to run our Monte Carlo style run to the start of the COT.
This fantastic event is open for all ERCA members. The route will take the participants from Perth, South through Margret River, across the Nullabor, into the flinders ranges, through the Barossa Valley, along the Great Ocean Road, through Victorian and NSW high country, before finally finishing 20 days later in Sydney.
