Any vehicle manufactured before 2007. There is no are restrictions for "Cruiser Class".
Vehicles must have current registration covering the period of the event. Current registration papers and Department of Motor Transport certificate in those states where applicable must be shown at scrutineering or a copy sent to the organisers.
Handy Hint: If your vehicle has a production date of more than 30 years ago you may be eligible for a concession on your registration with the Department of Transport & Main Roads under their Special Interest Vehicle Scheme. If this applies to your Dunga, head to www.tmr.gov.au and look under concessional registration or drop in to see them.
All vehicles must be insured for Third Party Property Damage covering the period of the event. A copy of your insurance CERTIFICATE OF CURRENCY must be presented at scrutineering or a copy sent to the organisers. This is an additional policy which must be taken out in addition to the Compulsory Third Party with your vehicle registration.
Please note: Third Party Property Damage Insurance is NOT the same as Compulsory Third Party Insurance that comes with vehicle registration. It is also worth reading your insurance policy wording (PDS – Policy Disclosure Statement) to ensure you aren’t excluded from cover during the Rally. Most Insurers will allow coverage for a Non-Timed Charity Rally Event but you are better to be sure by asking the insurer the question straight away rather than finding out after an incident that you aren’t covered.
All vehicles must have seat belts for all passengers. The belts should be either full harness or lap/sash.

All vehicles must carry an operating 5w UHF radio. 5 Watt Handhelds are permitted but fully installed units are preferred.
A clearly visible rotating amber light(s) are compulsory for safety when driving in dust and should be mounted as high as possible on the vehicle and visible from both the front & rear. (If luggage is going to restrict the view from either the front or rear, we suggest you consider fitting two amber lights.)

It is important to have an accurate tripmeter. Route instructions will be given in kilometres. As the route notes are prepared from a GPS system, it is recommended a similar unit be used. GPS odometer apps can be downloaded free for mobile phones or tablets (IPad & Android) which are fitted with a GPS. (search your apps for “odometer”). These are accurate, however an auxiliary power supply and mounting bracket for the phone or tablet is recommended.
