Rylstone Classic

Please keep up to date with any changes due to Covid restrictions

Update 12th June

BREAKING: In response to today’s Federal Government announcement which scraps the 100 person cap in favour of the 4 square metre rule, we’re delighted to announce that our 10th anniversary event WILL go ahead!
With the changes likely to come into effect in July and our plans to involve all local clubs, pubs and restaurants we believe we can safely execute the event.
Of course, we will have a special focus on social distancing, hygiene controls and all measures required to keep us safe and compliant during registration and any points where the field will gather.
We will proceed as if the event is on, only postponing should the situation change.

Evan Redman
Event Director

 

This FREE 2 day event is for Mini owners and enthusiasts with other classic vehicles accepted upon application. The 2019 Rylstone Classic, to be held August 22,23, encompasses a range of novelty activities and will be conducted at a leisurely pace, befitting the vintage of our vehicles. With an overnight stay in wine country, the Rylstone Classic has grown over the past eight years to become one of Australia's marquee events for Mini enthusiasts, with numbers growing year on year.

There are a few changes this year with the most important being we have made the decision to move our Central Coast starting point from the Gosford Classic Car Museum to the Mingara Recreation Club at Tumbi Umbi.

It may be a few extra kilometres for our Sydney folk to travel, but the venue provides everything we need for a safe and ordered departure on the big day.

Plus, with a range of cafes on site, pre-fuelling will be a breeze!

Our entry form has been updated online, with all existing entries also corrected.

Register and keep up to date here: http://www.rylstoneclassic.com/

or on the Facebook page: The Rylstone Classic

Update May 26th

With state-based restrictions updated almost daily and our 2020 plans to involve more pubs, clubs, hotels and restaurants across Rylstone and Kandos for a Saturday evening Festival of Food, we're looking more and more likely that we can hold our event.

Our event's popularity - now with over 340 competitors - is our biggest challenge at the moment so stay tuned for updates in the coming weeks as we navigate the restrictions to put this puzzle together safely.

All British Day 2020

Mini Car Club of NSW Annual Show and Shine

Update on All British Day.

The Kings Schools Fair has been cancelled but the art show may go ahead but not necessarily in its usual form.

The School is happy for the car show to go ahead subject to Government restrictions. As the lock-down restrictions ease we may be able to get together and decide what we should do. None of the food and drinks will have been arranged (it is possible that food still will not be allowed to be sold/served) but we may be able to book our own. Extra toilets will be required as well.

As soon as the Government does announce what will or won’t be allowed in September we can make some decisions.

Cheers

Greg Kean

The annual All British Day is still planned to proceed at Kings School, Pennant Hills Rd, North Parramatta.

We have been watching with great interest as the country slowly starts to open up and with borders now open and restrictions easing, we are very confident that Wings Over Illawarra will be a great success.

All tickets that have already been purchased for the May event are still valid!!  Simply print them out or show them on your phone to be scanned at the gate.
