The Historic Rally Association (HRA) was formed in 1992 to foster the growth in the classic cars and events of the “golden era” of Australian car rallying in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

Based in Melbourne, the HRA now boasts a membership of over 800 from most states of Australia and is growing rapidly. The club is affiliated with the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS).

Our membership includes rally champions and competitors from the past; right through to new converts to historic rallying attracted to the more friendly style of event, great comradeship and economical car availability.
