What is Rally Retro Festival?

Rally Retro Day is an event designed to get historically significant rally cars “out of the shed and onto the track” so we can re-live just a bit of the magic that these cars brought to the forest.

They might be high quality replicas, restored ex-works prepared cars, as rallied time-capsule pieces or rally prepared examples of iconic rally cars of the past.

It’s a chance for us all to have a look at these special cars, which are often hidden away in sheds and see and hear many of them in action, on a short, sealed rally course.

The next Rally Retro Festival is on Saturday 27 February, 2021.

The cars…

We’re pulling together the greatest collection of Classic Rally Cars ever assembled in Australia for the 2020 Rally Retro Festival!

Go to “2019 cars” to see the cars that were exhibited at the first Festival in 2019 or check out this 2019 Rally Retro Day gallery.

Also, enjoy this gallery, “Back in the day…” to see some great pics of cars from the 60s, 70s and 80s – in all their black and white glory!

Come back nearer to the event and we’ll have a list of the cars coming to the 2020 Rally Retro Festival.

When and where?

Saturday 27 February, 2021. From 08:00 for entrants and from 10:00 am for spectators. Put it in your diary or calendar now.

Rally Retro Festival will be held at METEC, in Bayswater North.

METEC offers grassy display areas and a great little track for the demonstration runs. And, it’s conveniently located in the north eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
