The Shannons Adelaide Rally is the largest tarmac rally in the southern hemisphere, with a record field of more than 400 cars taking part in our 2020/21 event.
With a large contingent of Touring participants in a variety of prestige, historic and rare vehicles, the Rally is a significant tourism event for South Australia, taking in four distinct tourism regions: the Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, Fleurieu Peninsula and McLaren Vale.
A large number of entrants come to South Australia from interstate: in excess of 50 vehicles came from NSW, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia in 2021. Given the uncertainties of COVID-19, this is a huge vote of confidence in the event and a big boost for tourism businesses in the state.
Entries for the 2022 Adelaide Rally will open in November 2021. 2022 dates TBA.
