After a lot of planning and consideration the organisers felt that we’ve exhausted the Cairns roads at least to an extent that warranted a fresh location for 2016. We’ve taken repeated trips to Townsville to find suitable roads, loops, ranges and 1/100 challenge locations and as a result, we decided to host the next rally there in July 2016.

Unfortunately the entry fees for AC16 will be higher than before, which may cause some disappointment. When we began in 2012 we nominated entry fees that paid for less than half the cost because we haven’t yet had a demonstrated history of successful and enjoyable events.

Now, that three exceptionally spectacular events are behind us, it’s time to adjust the fees to a level that is sustainable and represents the value offered by Australia Classic. We sincerely hope that our core audience will understand and maintain involvement.

The AC website will shortly be extensively overhauled and the new entry form will offer prepayment as well as instalment options for those wishing to secure their spots.

Many of you would have already seen the 6-page coverage of AC15 in last month’s Unique Cars magazine. If you missed it, check it out on our website’s Articles page! We were also humbled to have had a write-up published on Petrolicious.
