The Alpine is the oldest surviving motorsport event in Australia and the second oldest rally in the world!
Only a handful of motorsport events, including the French Grand Prix, the Monte Carlo Rally, the Indianapolis 500, Pikes Peak Hill Climb and the Italian Grand Prix, are older.
The Historic Rally Association reinvigorated the Alpine in 2001, and moved to its new home, East Gippsland, in 2003. Since then the event has run every two years – except for 2021 when it was postponed due to COVID-19.
The Alpine is a special stage rally for two wheel drive classic rally cars. The event has regularly attracted the cream of Australia’s gravel rally competitors, from both all states and territories . We also attract international competitors from New Zealand, the UK, the USA and Ireland.
The event will be based in Lakes Entrance and be held over 3 1/2 days and will cover over 1,000 km, visiting Nowa Nowa, Orbost, Ensay, Swifts Creek, Omeo and Bruthen, before finishing on the Lakes Entrance Foreshore on Sunday afternoon.
