Night Navigation Rally

Night Navigation Rally
Evening of 16 June 2018

The night trial will be a two-and-a-half-hour observation trial on quiet roads in the Richmond area. A great introductory event, so come along and bring family or a friend, or someone who might be interested.

Meeting at 4 pm for a 4.15 departure. Sunset is at 5 pm with civil twilight at 5.22 pm. The start of the route is straight out from Richmond onto the horse flats between Richmond and Windsor. It is easy navigation, and route instructions and maps will be provided. We will have a sweeper car.

Return to Richmond for dinner. The dinner venue is 350 metres from the motel.

Either drive home, or stay the night, and depart at your leisure the following morning. Further details will be published shortly but register your interest now and we will provide further updates on the finalised accommodation and dinner venue in the next fortnight.

Entry fee $20 per car, with dinner and accommodation for those staying on.

Flying Doctor Dubbo Rally  - CANCELLED
May

to May 11

Flying Doctor Dubbo Rally - CANCELLED

EVENT CANCELLATION

VSCCA’s Rally to Dubbo
to celebrate Royal Flying Doctor Service
7-11th May 2018

It is with great disappointment that we announce the Royal Flying Doctors Service Rally is cancelled. 

However, we are leaving the event in the club calendar in the event that any members wish to attend Dubbo on the nominated dates of 7-11 May and use their car under the Concessional Registration Scheme.

This decision has been triggered by recent reports that the local council (who operate the Dubbo Airfield) have absolutely prohibited any motor vehicle, or other access near the aircraft, so that the proposed historical display cannot take place as planned. 

The car park at the airport would not be available for use by our members and there is no opportunity for a display.  This, combined with the cancellation of the formal dinner, reduced the benefit of the event to members.   

This is a decision that has not been taken lightly and is a serious disappointment to the organisers, the Committee and members.

Our thanks to Julie Craig and Royce Read

The Committee recognises the enormous work undertaken by Julie Craig and Royce Read in putting this rally together. We extend our great gratitude to Julie and Royce for all their efforts, and the wisdom and experience they bring to bear.

Fun Driving Tests at FIAT Club Grounds

Fun Driving Tests at FIAT Club Grounds

Fun Driving Test Gymkhana

Saturday 14 April - FIAT Club Grounds

Following the success of this event last year, the VSCCA, in conjunction with the Alvis Car Club, are putting on another day of driving tests at the FIAT club grounds. The course of between 6 and 8 tests of driving skill is set on a flat mown paddock which is gentle on vehicles and drivers.

This is not a speed event, but one of skill.

Younger people can participate as passengers who will be challenged with their own tests.

People who have never driven a vintage car can get some practice in a separate paddock area, where they can come to terms with vintage steering brakes and gearchanges. This was very popular last year. If they feel confident enough they can head out and take the tests.

Lunch will be a “bring your own picnic”

There are BBQ facilities available. Lunch was held under the trees, sitting on running boards, and without flies.

This is a very relaxed, country style event, within an hour of central Sydney.

It is a great introduction for children, grandchildren, friends and other relatives who may wish to attempt the vintage experience. Apart from anything else, it is one of the nicest picnic areas which we will have to ourselves for the day. See photos of last year's event.

Location of Event

You will find the Fiat Club Grounds at Percival Street Clarendon, next to the Richmond Royal Australian Air Force base. Entry is via a driveway with a small sign saying “Ansell Park, Private Property”. The location of Ansell Park can be found HERE.

RSVPs

For planning purposes please let us know if you will be attending and how many others you plan to bring with you. Phone Jeremy Morris on 9335 3040 or send an email to jeremymorris1100@gmail.com

I look forward to seeing you at this event.

Twilight Rally
Feb
24
to Feb 25

Twilight Rally

Twilight Run to Wisemans Ferry

Enjoy a 3-hour twilight run on superb roads starting in Northern Sydney and ending at The Retreat in Wisemans Ferry. Dinner and barefoot bowls at the Bowling Club Saturday night.  

Ideal for slower cars, new members, and families.

This is a new event organised but one of our new committee members, Malcolm Knight with assistance from Jeremy Morris.

The idea is to have a short, easy navigation rally late in the afternoon to take advantage of the last long days of summer, so people can accommodate school sport or other social commitments with their vintage motoring activities.

This will depart from the Berowra Truck stop with a departure time of 4.30 pm for slower cars with a total distance of 130 kms on empty rural roads. Total travel time is about three hours.

Dinner

The rally will conclude with an a la carte dinner at the bowling club (dish prices roughly  $15-25). There is the option for barefoot bowls after dinner at $5 per head- kids free.

You do not have to stay

You do not have to stay the night- you can depart after the rally, or after dinner.

Accommodation

We plan to stay at the Retreat at Wiseman’s Ferry:

Because of other bookings, there is limited accommodation available at the Retreat, so you will need to book asap. Average cost is about $150 for the night, depending on the type of room you select.

If you cannot get in at the Retreat, you can try the Wisemans Ferry Inn.

Breakfast or brunch- it is up to you

Breakfast is available at the Retreat at $25 per head, but we are planning to get up at a reasonable time and take a scenic route on quiet roads for a further 50 kms to have brunch at Berowra Waters. There is no capacity to book but we are assured that we will be able to get tables. The cost is about the same.

After brunch, cross the ferry, let the modern traffic pass you, and take the hill at a pace which suits you and your car.

If you are interested, book your accommodation now, and let the organisers know for planning purposes:
