Lock & Load Transport Alpine Rally of East Gippsland...
your centenary birthday celebrations will be delayed!

2021 was the 100th anniversary of the first running of the Alpine in 1921.  But, 2021’s COVID lock downs and travel restrictions led us to push 2021’s event to December 2022. After all, the Tokyo Olympics did so!  The birthday party will be delayed too. 

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.

Join us in beautiful East Gippsland in December 2022 for the Lock & Load Transport Alpine Rally of East Gippsland – Australia’s greatest rally for 2 wheel drive classic rally cars.  And for a centenary birthday celebration!
