McLaren Vale Vintage and Classic

Entries are again open for this event on Sunday 29th April

Previous entrants will get a postal entry form – but it can be downloaded at

The day starts with an early morning gathering at Serafino’s [McLaren’s on the Lake], and then a parade down the main street of McLaren Vale at 11 am.  Thousands of people line the street to get a close view of the incredible range of vehicles driving past; cars, vans, and motorbikes with a flyover by vintage Biplanes.  Drivers then head out to participating wineries to display their vehicles for the afternoon, picnicking etc.

The Sprite Club of SA usually gets a dozen or so cars involved – join us again this year.  It’s a pretty good gathering of old cars and a good little get together for the Club.

Sprite vs Lycra

15th January – Breakfast in Hahndorf early Sunday morning and then out to dodge the peleton as they gear up for Tour Down Under.  Two casualties, one with a dodgy gearbox, and another with an electrical gremlin.  What was that about Lucas, Prince of Darkness?


2012 Festival of Sprites

One of those places where we want to take you, and we want you in the formation for the good of all, is the Australian 2012 Festival of Sprites. I really want to call on all of our Members who have not indicated , or who might be still contemplating involvement, to be part of this event because I know you will enjoy the ride and take memories from it. The event caters for those who wish to have track time, those who to drive socially ( that’s us mainly) and those who don’t even have a Sprite in fact! The fact you are a Sprite devotee you will want to meet up with Sprite devotees from WA,VIC,QLD, & NSW. See their cars, share the passion with them, and make new friends. What better place to do it than at Wangaratta, near by is Winton Raceway and Wangaratta is the gateway to so many wonderful touring roads,places of historic and scenic interest, many local producers of wine, cheese,olives and chocolate.

Excellent accommodation has been secured at extremely good rates and the tariff for the event reflects this, plus evening meals, lunches, a farewell breakfast and of course entertainment. A couple are going from our Club which is a great improvement from recent years.

Please give this event your serious consideration, don’t dismiss it lightly as something other people, it it aimed at you and you really enjoy yourself, big time.
