THE SHANNONS CLASSIC RALLYE - You do not need to be a Shannons member to enter this tour.

is a unique opportunity to take part in the world renowned ‘Targa Australia’ Tarmac events as a motoring enthusiast. You will enjoy the freedom of driving your (minimum 25-year-old) Classic vehicle on the ‘Special Stages’ of our events. You will rub shoulders with legends, feel the rush of the corners, the exhilaration of mountainous roads and enjoy a bonding journey like no other.

This is a team event, just as the main competition, each driver depends on their navigator to guide them through each stage and relies upon them to arrive at the next stage. This is the Ultimate driving experience.

Posted Speed Limit
Minimum CAMS Level 2 Non-Speed License


The tour adheres to the sign posted speed limits, although there is still plenty of opportunity to enjoy your car in a very “spirited” manner- the way they were designed. The Shannon’s Classic Rallye follows the same 17 stages/course as competition vehicles, on closed roads using both sides of the road, ensuring you feel every twist and turn of the event and come across the hard-earned finish line.
