RACV 1&2 Cylinder Rally - Ararat

Thursday 17th - Sunday 20th March 2022

Welcome to the 2022 RACV 1&2 Cylinder Rally web page

This year we will be exploring Ararat, in the foothills of the Grampians.

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 in our veterans, and to safely socialise with fellow veteran enthusiasts.  A simple activity we haven’t been able to do for some time.

Entries will open on December 14th., but it is important you book your accommodation NOW.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ararat and to the event.

Michael and Claudia Holding
Directors
