Thankyou to everyone who have made this possible

 

The Alvis Car Club formed in NSW in 1950 and the Alvis Car Club (Vic.), initially a part of the NSW club (1953), became a club in its own right in 1955/6. Details of early Interstate/ National Rally's are sketchy however the first one is recorded as being at Gundagai in 1956. The events were generally of 2-3 days at first, usually on Queens Birthday weekend in June, and attracted 8-15 cars and their enthusiastic owners. The attendance grew steadily until 40-50 cars come along. The event also grew to become the week long rally held approximately once every two years that most of us are used to now. The events currently rotate around the Eastern States of Australia and attract owners from Australia and Internationaly. Other extended tours have been held from time to time in Tasmania and New Zealand.
