Classic and historic car clubs in SA will hit top gear under a new grant aimed at accelerating the growth of motorsport communities.
The SA Car Club Program is set to fuel the expansion plans for car and motorcycle clubs and the passionate motoring enthusiasts and classic car lovers across the state.
The $2 million program will provide $500,000 worth of grants per year, over four years, to support local clubs host bigger and better events while meeting rising operating costs, including managing their role within the conditional registration scheme.
Funding can be used for projects including:
The new grant scheme - the first of its kind in South Australia - coincides with the return of the Adelaide Motorsport Festival this weekend, fulfilling a Malinauskas Government promise to bring back the world-renowned event.
There are more than 200 recognised motoring clubs in South Australia with over 39,000 vehicles registered through the recently expanded conditional registration scheme, comprising a mix of historic, left-hand drive and street rod vehicles.
The Department for Infrastructure and Transport will provide ongoing support to applicants throughout the duration of the program.
Applications for the inaugural SA Car Club Program close at midday April 24, 2023.
Eligible clubs must have at least 20 members and been operating for 12 months or longer.
