Taglong with the 2020 Classic Outback Trial

If you or your vehicle aren’t up for for the full-on Classic Outback Trial, then why not tagalong?

The Classic Outback Trial Tagalong Tour will commence in Parkes on the morning of Sunday 1 November* and finish in Bathurst with the Classic Outback Tour (COT) Gala Presentation on the evening of Saturday 7 November 2020.

Starting in Parkes on Sunday 9th August 2020, the tour will head south then a loop north and finish back in Parkes for the night; then head north, east and south for the next four days and nights, camping at various overnight locations. The tour will finish in Bathurst on Saturday 15th August.

The Tour will be for participants in four-wheel drive and Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV) and will, in part, pass through private property over special stages used in the COT. The maximum speed permitted on private property or State Forests will be 80 km/h.

All vehicles are to be fitted with RallySafe equipment, allowing tracking to be carried out by the COT central control, and a medical service, if required, will be provided by the COT medical team.

There is no need for safety equipment as used in rally cars (eg, safety harnesses, helmets, roll over protection) – any road registered vehicle may be entered in the Tagalong Tour.

Provision can be made for fly in – fly out participants, with hiring a 4WD vehicle, including camping gear if required. This cost is not included in the entry fee.
