ERCA Perth to Sydney Classic 2022
Due to Covid restrictions and border closures we have postponed the event to October - November 2022. Stay tuned for updates!
October - November 2022 (final dates to be confirmed).
The rally route looks really great. After leaving Perth the route heads south through Margret River, then skirts the bottom tip of WA before heading back towards the Nullabor via Esperance and Balladonia. The rally then heads towards Adelaide, but turns north into the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, through the Barossa, then down to the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. There's a layover day in Melbourne to attend the Melbourne Cup, before heading up through the Victorian high country, on to Canberra and then finally finishing in downtown Sydney.

Most of the accommodation has already been identified and we are currently working on reserving rooms for our group. We are endeavouring to book the best available accommodation, but as you can appreciate, some areas are a little remote so accommodation can be a little variable.
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 - firstname.lastname@example.org. A $1,000 deposit will be required as a deposit if your entry is successful. 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 $10 - 12K 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 3 rest days during our journey:
1 day at Parachilna in South Australia to explore the beautiful Flinders Ranges
1 day in Melbourne to attend the famous Melbourne Cup Horse Race at Flemington Race Course
1 day in Canberra to have a look around Australia's capital.
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!
