The 2018 Classic Outback Trial will be conducted with two competition classes and complimented with a touring event:

  • Classic Outback Trial for historic and classic cars (to 1988),
  • Classic Outback Modern for modern rally cars (from 1986),
  • Classic Outback Tagalong Tour for 4WD and AWD SUV’s

The Classic Competition offers a throwback to the golden era of motorsport when cars like Ford’s Escort and Datsuns ruled the world’s stages. Following a successful debut in 2016, the Classic Outback Trial Classic will also once again see Modern competition vehicles included such as Subaru’s iconic WRX. Each competition will have it’s own winner, but there will be no overall victor.

Complimenting the Classic and Modern competition, is the COT Tagalong Tour. New for 2018, the Tour is a non-competitive opportunity to explore and experience the Outback following selected stages used in the previous days competition in a 4WD or AWD SUV. To ensure you get the true Outback experience four nights of camping accommodation is included.
