Introducing the West Cape Classic – tarmac challenge
The West Cape Classic is a new event which will offer an unparalleled opportunity for driving excitement for participants and spectators.
The inaugural West Cape Classic will take place over the weekend of 27 – 29 April 2018.
A significant part of the West Cape Classic will be the social aspect, with excellent functions throughout, including dinners at great locations.
Five competition stages each day will include many new stages never before run. There’s no navigation, just driving on some great roads of South-West WA – and great company.
Several spectator locations are sure to attract big crowds over the 3-day event. Destinations include Bunbury, Busselton, Margaret River, Yallingup, Dunsborough and Collie plus the Perth metro area, including the Claremont Showgrounds finale. Competitive stages will include closed road sprints, motorkhanas, circuit stages, hillclimbs and more… all great tests of driver and machine.
Categories will suit older or newer cars and one or two drivers per car, driver and passenger and a Touring class for those who wish to take it a bit easier. Something to suit everyone!
Uniquely, the event is designed to have several categories:
- a single driver,
- two drivers sharing a car (each drives every competition stage),
- a driver and a non-driving passenger,
- a Touring category, which aside from the Motorkhanas, drive the closed-road stages spiritedly in a group behind a pace car. These choices allow for a wide mix of competitive interests among participants and their co-drivers and passengers.
Importantly, the West Cape Classic does not require race suits, roll cages or equipment of more serious rallies. As a Touring Road Event, Level 2 Speed (L2S) competition licenses are required, helmets, long sleeve clothing, a first aid kit and fire extinguisher – so anyone can use their car without modifications
