The Rally Committee has noted your observations on the rally organisation, and with their own, has provided an after-action report for review. We will be working to resolve these issues so that future Rallies will meet your, and our, expectations.

From the RACV Royal Auto Magazine::
Further to requests for allocated areas for club displays and group parking, areas have been allocated for Car An extra starting point has been added to the 2017 RACV Great Australian Rally as a nod to a famous veteran car run. Many old-timers from the Veteran Car Club of Australia will start the rally, on Sunday 5 February, from Brighton in Melbourne, in honour of the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, which first took place in 1896. "We'll be waved off from Park Street in Brighton at 9am and head up the main shopping street," says rally organiser Colin Brown.

These veterans, along with many vintage and classics cars and other vehicles starting from St Kilda Rd and Hastings Marina, will converge on Mornington Racecourse. "It is one of the biggest classic car events in Australia now," Colin Brown says. "We get pretty close to 1000 cars taking part."

The RACV Great Australian Rally is a major fundraiser for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. In 20 years itís raised more than $800,000. The money comes from the $30 entry fee to drive in the rally and the $10 admission fee to see all the cars at Mornington Racecourse. "The people who come along can see very old Rolls-Royces, T-Model Ford and a range of other classic cars," Colin says. "It's a great day out."

News for Clubs: Further to requests for allocated areas for club displays and group parking, areas have been allocated for Car Club use and the map of the Mornington Racecourse has been enhanced with Car Club reserved parking locations and the preferred Racecourse Road entry gate to use. Please identify the reserve parking allocated and racecourse entry gate and advise members attending as a group accordingly.

As you may be aware the Racecourse Management double booked the venue and as a consequence access to the racecourse on Saturday has been denied. However, the racecourse will be open at 6am Sunday to enable you to prepare the reserved parking area and club promotional display, which should be completed by 9am - 9.45am. All British Classis Car Club Marshalls, (noted on the reserved parking plan) will be on hand to guide you to the reserved parking allocated. It would be appreciated if you could appoint a Marshal from your club to oversee the parking of your club members' cars in the appropriate reserved parking location. Without the opportunity to gain access to the venue on Saturday and the big task to be undertaken on Sunday morning, your cooperation and patience in this respect would be greatly appreciated.

Arrival at the Racecourse as a group is preferred but if this is not possible, Marshals will be able to guide rally participants to their Club's allocated reserved parking location. Unfortunately in those instances where insufficient parking space is available, entrants will be directed to the general parking area or to the judged parking area for entrants who have elected to enter the judged section

Due to circumstances beyond our control it has been necessary to change the intended date of this event from the 22nd of January to Sunday the 5th of February 2017.

We hope that this early advice will enable you to plan ahead so you may participate in this rally.

Entry forms are being prepared and we will advise you when these are available to mail to you or complete on line.

The RACV and the All British Classics Car Club committee would like to thank you for your past support of this event.
