The largest motor car club in Australia, the Sporting Car Club was founded in Adelaide in 1934, also making it one of the oldest. Our 1700 members, (many of those members for more than 50 years ) all love cars and enjoy motorsport.
The Sporting Car Club holds motorsport events and competitions and runs the majority of events at Mallala including the South Australian Motor Racing Championships. We run National, State and Club events at our own Collingrove Hillclimb Track. We also encourage the preservation and restoration of historic motor vehicles.
Our collection of motorsport and motoring information in our magnificent Eric Rainsford Library, is one of the largest in the southern hemisphere. The Library offers Club Members workshop manuals, spare parts lists, current motoring journals and motoring books in addition to videos. Over 7000 volumes including workshop manuals, spare parts lists, motoring journals and books are mostly available for Members to borrow and research is available to non-Members.
We organise Club events and social gatherings like hillclimbs, runs and rallies including the popular Sunseeker Rally and Adelaide Motorsport Festival. John Blanden's Climb to the Eagle held in Adelaide just before the Australian Grand Prix each year is legendary. All are organised by the Club's staff while the Special Events Office runs more than 20 motor sport events each year.
