The Sporting Car Club was founded in 1934, making us the second oldest continually running car club in the World. Our 1,700 members all love cars and taking part in motorsport.
Much of what the Sporting Car Club is about is motorsport. We run both circuit and hillclimb events at The Bend Motorsport Park, Mallala Motorsport Park and our very own Collingrove Hillclimb. Members as well as the general public have the opportunity to compete and experience life in motorsport.
The club is extremely proud that His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AO is the Club Patron, continuing the great Club history of patronage by the Govenor of South Australia.
Many people may be surprised to think that there is more to the Sporting Car Club of SA than just conditional membership. In addition to the motorsport benefits and opportunities, members will struggle to find a weekend where nothing is happening.
With the help from our sections, weekends are filled with fun and sociable runs to new and interesting destinations within South Australia. Some of our more notable runs include the Climb to the Eagle and Sunseeker!
Our club rooms is also home to our Eric Rainsford Library, the largest automotive library in the Southern hemisphere.

Over 7,000 volumes including workshop manuals, spare parts lists, motoring journals and books are available for members to borrow and research.
