The VOLVO NATIONAL RALLY organised by the VOLVO CAR CLUB of NSW, was held 14 - 16 August 2015.

This event was held in conjunction with the SHANNONS SYDNEY CLASSIC logo-Shannons-sml at Sydney Motorsports Park - Facebook page Shannons Sydney Classic.


The venue was The Hills Lodge Grand Mercure Hotel in Castle Hill  on the Friday evening with a cocktail party. Saturday morning was a Coffee Cruise on the Sydney Harbour with morning tea served. In the afternoon back at the Hills Lodge was a BBQ and an opportunity to have autographs by our overseas guests.

A Presentation Dinner was held on the Sunday night at the Hills Lodge celebrating our special visitors.

The NSW Club has brought out to Australia for this event a well known Volvo person and there was a video interview with Pelle Petterson:

Unfortunately Pelle is unable to attend the Volvo Rally due to ill health. We wish him well and know that he is
disappointed that he cannot travel as he loves Australia.
A video of him addressing the Rally attendees was shown and is available on this site.
