The Sporting Car Club is hosting eight circuit events for 2021.
A four round Motorsport Australia State Championship Series featuring two rounds at Mallala Motorsport Park and two rounds at the Bend Motorsport Park.
The All Historic Mallala Event returns at the earlier date of 17th & 18th of April.
We are also celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the AGP running at Mallala along with a Season Launch and Season Finale Event to bookend the season.
The State Championship Events offer a true 'wheel to wheel' racing against other competitors in your class event where the others will offer both Regularity and Super Sprint options.
All Motorsport Australia recognised classes can be entered. If there are too few competitors to front a full field of cars, classes are combined with similar speed and vehicle types to give as many entrants as possible someone to race against.
If you are from interstate and are looking to race in South Australia, contact our events office on (08) 8271 5689 or email to find out where you’ll fit in.
If you want to bring your whole class over for a round of something different, then we will welcome you and give you a start.
You need a Motorsport Australia National Circuit licence (minimum PCC level) and a compliant car with a racing logbook to compete in the SA State Motor Racing Championship Rounds. This is the highest level of amateur motorsport in South Australia.
For our other circuit events, a Speed licence may be sufficient.

It’s easy to drive a fast car quickly – driving a near standard HQ Kingswood, complete with 3.3 litre six and 3 speed manual, now that’s a challenge! The concept of racing HQ Holdens was “invented” in Tasmania and introduced to mainland Australia by the Sporting Car Club, who promoted the first race at Mallala in 1989.
This category has re-defined the term “close racing”, with racers diving 3 abreast into corners with amazing regularity. The best part for would-be racers is that – in relative terms at least – racing a HQ Holden is an inexpensive way to enter into competitive motor sport. After the initial purchase of the car, strict regulations ensure that maintenance and modification costs are kept to a minimum.
With everyone using the same cars, there’s no shortage of advice for newcomers from experienced racers on how to tune cars and improve lap times (although not too much!).
For Information on how to get involved racing HQs, get in contact with Darren Jenkins on 0438 270 640.
Historic Race Register
Old racing cars never die – they just keep getting faster, and so do their owners! The Sporting Car Club’s Historic Racing Register promotes and documents historic racing in South Australia.
Each of the five rounds of the SCCSA Motorsport Australia State Series feature Historic categories where owners get to put their historics to the test.
All Historic Mallala
The highlight of the historic racing calendar is the annual National All Historic Mallala. Held over the ANZAC Weekend, this event is the biggest historic race event in the state, and the last of the true picnic races, where you can park alongside the track and watch the action. Plenty of rare and special cars race it out at the historic Mallala Motorsport Park track! With car displays and parades, the week is more than just racing - it’s also a popular social outing for the whole family! Many competitors consider this to be the last remaining Historic race event with the real feel of what Historic motoring is all about – companionship, conversation, cars and competition.
