Lock & Load Transport Alpine Rally of East Gippsland... coming up in December 2022!

2021 was the 100th anniversary of the first running of the Alpine in 1921. 

The Alpine is the oldest surviving motorsport event in Australia and the second oldest rally in the world! Only a handful of motorsport events, including the French Grand Prix, the Monte Carlo Rally, the Indianapolis 500, Pikes Peak Hill Climb and the Italian Grand Prix, are older.

Unfortunately, due to COVID lockdowns and border restrictions, Organisers postponed the #AlpineRally100  celebrations to 1-4 December 2022. Read the announcement for more…
