ERCA Perth to Sydney Classic 2022
The Perth to Sydney Classic is GO!
After rescheduling our event from 2021 due to Covid, the 2022 event is definitely going ahead and we are now calling for ERCA members to enter or confirm their previous entry. Due to accommodation constraints in many of the small towns along the route, we are limiting the entrants to 20 cars.
19th October - 5th November 2022
The rally route looks really great and will take in some iconic parts of our beautiful country. We've made a few changes to our original route which we think will improve the overall experience for everyone.
From our start in Perth, the rally will head south through Margret River, then skirt the bottom tip of WA before heading back towards the Nullabor via Esperance and Balladonia. We then loop down to Port Lincoln before heading north towards the Flinders Ranges in South Australia to stay a few nights in Parachilna. Then it's south through the Barossa, and down to the Great Ocean Road into Victoria. We pass through Melbourne and head to Mansfield to celebrate the Melbourne Cup with a day at the country races. The next day we head south to Metung on the Victorian Coast, before turning north through the Victorian high country and on to Thredbo in NSW. It's then a run down to the NSW coastline and onto our finish in Sydney. All up we are traveling over 6,000 kilometers in 18 days.

Accommodation and Meals
Unlike the 2021 rally, ERCA will prebook all the accommodation in advance and pass the cost onto each team. This will allow us to get the best deals and also keep us together as a group as much as possible.
We will also prebook some meals where required but also give entrants the option to dine where they like in towns that have multiple options.
Who Can Enter?
At least one member of the crew must be a financial member of ERCA to participate. We are capping the entries at around 20 cars due to limited accommodation in some areas. Crews that have already entered and paid for the 2021 Perth to Sydney Rally will automatically be entered onto the 2022 start list. To see our current list of entrants CLICK HERE
What Cars are Eligible?
The rally is open to Vintage or Classic Cars that are built in the spirit of endurance rallying events. Guidelines on eligible cars can be found on our website HERE, however, if your car does not strictly comply, please talk to us.
How to Enter?
If you would like to enter please contact ERCA via email - email@example.com. A $1,000 deposit will be required as a deposit if your entry is successful. If you have already paid a $1,000 deposit for the 2021 event, that will count as your deposit for the 2022 event. Further payment details will be provided shortly.
If the event is oversubscribed we will add you to a waiting list.
How Much Will it Cost?
At this stage, we are still sorting through the costs including accommodation, mechanical support, some meals and events, and other associated costs. We believe each team should budget about $10K for the full event.
In addition, crews will need to budget for fuel, meals, and the odd alcoholic beverage here and there.
We are planning a rest day at around the halfway mark in Parachilna in South Australia to explore the beautiful Flinders Ranges.
We recommend all cars are registered for RACV Roadside Assist or equivalent and we recommend fitting a UHF radio to your car. We will be using a GPS Mapping program for navigation that is best used on a smart Apple or Android tablet. Ideally, this should be solidly mounted on the dashboard are for easy access by the navigator and driver.
We will continue to update the information on this page so check back again soon!
