Historic Registration Benefits
For cars older than 30 years, they can be registered under club historic registration for a significant discount compared to standard registration. You can register your car for up to three years and will be able to drive it up to 90 days a year. Being a Sporting Car Club of South Australia member will give you the opportunity to register your car under these conditions.
One of the bigger motivators behind getting a SCCSA Membership is the benefits one gets with motorsport. Firstly, the Sporting Car Club of South Australia is a Motorsport Australia affiliated club, which means our members can apply for a Motorsport Australia competition licence. Motorsport Australia will only issue a licence if the applicant is a member of an affiliated club.
Members receive exclusive discounts to SCCSA events both as competitors and spectators. These events include the Collingrove Challenge Trophy Hill Climbs, Winter Cup Hill Climbs, and the State Motor Racing Championships, held at The Bend Motorsport Park and Mallala Motorsport Park. Members have the opportunity to compete at The Bend Motorsport Park, Mallala Motorsport Park and our very own Collingrove Hillclimb! Enter enough events, and members will save more in discounts than what they spent in membership fees!
As a member you will receive our WheelSpin Magazine. Having recently been redesigned, the magazine has begun a new and exciting phase in its almost 60 years of existence! Members can enjoy their monthly issue, keeping informed with what’s happening with the club as well as exciting monthly feature articles.
Readers get the opportunity to place private advertisements in the Marketplace free of charge, sharing their cars and other objects with the other 1,700 members.
In addition to WheelSpin, members receive the weekly What's On At Your Club email communications, informing them of upcoming events, runs and general car club news.
Eric Rainsford Library
Our collection of motorsport and motoring information in our magnificent Eric Rainsford Library is one of the largest in the southern hemisphere. Club members have access to our impressive collection of motoring books. Over 7,000 volumes including workshop manuals, spare parts lists, motoring journals and books are available for members to borrow and research.
When joining the Sporting Car Club community, you will have freedom to then join any of the sections. Have an interest in Vintage cars? Then join the Veteran and Vintage Sections! The Sporting Car Club has numerous active sections including the Veteran and Vintage Sections, Classic and Modern Section, HQ Section, Historic Race Register Section, Fleurieu Section, and Competition Section.
Each of these sections offer monthly events and social gatherings. Members will find a whole array of things to do and will rarely find a weekend with nothing to do!
Members also have the opportunity to join a section committee. Committee members work with others sharing the same interest and passion to create events and fun activities for those sections to be enjoyed by the many active members!
