Competitive Events

THE VCSSA encourages its members to participate in events which test driving skills. Events, while competitive in nature, are not necessarily tests of speed. Driving accuracy, consistency, and knowledge of the vehicle are also tested.

The VSCCA organises the following events –

Driving Tests

These are arranged in conjunction with the Alvis Car Club and comprise a fun series of events to test driving accuracy and knowledge of the vehicle, and are usually run at a very slow speed, they are not speed events. They are combined with a picnic and give others a chance to drive cars in a secure area. Learn more

COOTAMUNDRA SPRINTS

The Club organises an annual sprint meeting at Cootamundra Airport. The runway allows two cars to run safely to achieve an elapsed time over 400m.

Entrants can choose full speed timing or Regularity, the latter allowing cars to accelerate at any comfortable speed and once a time is selected then the object is to match that time as closely as possible in subsequent runs. Prior year photos.

 

Many VSCCA members also take part in events organised by other clubs. 

Races

HISTORIC WINTON is an annual race meeting of long standing for historic cars and motorcycles, organised by the Austin 7 Club of Victoria. The VSCCA usually has a strong entry. 

Historic Winton is held at Winton Motor Raceway, around 200 km North-East of Melbourne on the old Hume Highway - about 10k North of Benalla & 25k south of Wangaratta. The circuit is located in a picturesque part of country Victoria, and is unique in that all parts of the circuit can be seen from any vantage point.

It always pays to book ahead for this very popular event.

Rob Roy Hill Climb

At the time of its construction, Rob Roy was one of only three bitumen surfaced purpose built hillclimbs in the world. In 1935, representatives from the then Light Car Club of Australia inspected the property known as Clinton's Pleasure Grounds with a view to establishing a suitable venue for the hillclimb meetings.  Learn more   robroyhillclimb.com.au
