RACV 1&2 Cylinder Rally Cobram

Thursday 25th - Sunday 28th March 2021

Welcome to the 2021 RACV 1&2 Cylinder Rally web page. This year we are back at Cobram.

Again, we are grateful to the RACV for their sponsorship that has, for so many years, assisted the VCCA (Vic) in providing cost effective veteran motoring events for our members.

Our aim for this event is to keep it simple, enjoy driving and riding our veterans, and to safely socialise with fellow veteran enthusiasts. A simple activity we haven’t been able to do for the past 12 months.

At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to the VCCA (Vic)’s new on-line event entry system. This easy-to-use procedure will allow you to select the options you require, record the information we need to run the event and provide the service you expect. You can select to pay by credit card, EFT or cheque.

As you will appreciate, the itinerary below is subject to alteration based on any changes in restrictions, however I am remaining optimistic that we’ll be able to enjoy a fantastic weekend away!

The Itinerary

Thursday – a short shakedown run in the afternoon to test the results of your COVID tinkering.

Friday – a circa 120km (full length) run to Berrigan for a picnic lunch and coming home via Tocumwal. There will be a short route option in each direction for those in slower moving vehicles. The picnic lunch allows for flexibility in the planning in case of NSW border issues. An alternative picnic location within Victoria is prepared as plan B.

A lunch pack prepared by the RACV Resort is available through the entry form. The alternatives are BYO picnic or purchase something on the main street, there’s a bakery and a small hot food takeaway. Dinner will be a BBQ held at the RACV Resort, with some outdoor dining so not to exceed the expected density limits of their dining room.

Saturday – a brief display at a COVID-safe local community market in the morning before heading to Numurkah for lunch.

On the way back to Cobram, we have been invited to view a private collection of motorcycles, which range from veteran to modern classic, along with other vehicles of interest including a WWI tank! To coordinate this within the COVID restrictions, please register your intention to visit this collection as part of your entry. Approximately 90km will be covered for the day.

The Rally dinner will be held at the Barooga Sporties on the Saturday. A bus is offered, at a nominal charge, on a first come/first served basis to transfer you to and from dinner. Again, please register for this as part of your entry as numbers are limited.

Sunday – a 50km round trip in the morning to Cactus Country for morning tea before returning to the RACV Resort at lunch time to allow you the afternoon to travel home. Entry into the Cactus garden is included with morning tea.
