Who is Companion Card for?

The Companion Card is issued to people who have a significant, lifelong disability and will always need a companion to enable them to attend and participate in community based activities. The Companion Card allows the cardholder’s companion free entry into participating venues and events.

Adelaide Motorsport Festival three cars and drivers

The Adelaide Motorsport Festival is a family-friendly, museum-in-motion. The festival draws upon South Australia’s rich motorsport history and celebrates and re-enacts motorsport competition of a by-gone era. 2018 marks the fifth year the event has been run and the third year it has been delivered in the size and format seen in 2015 and 2016. Using a shortened version of the Adelaide Grand Prix track, spectators will witness a variety of vehicles in groups of 10-12 race against the clock. The Adelaide Rally, set amongst the beautiful Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale, Fleurieu and Murray Mallee regions, is based at the Adelaide Motorsport Festival. With plenty of star drivers, manufacturers displaying their latest models, 100's of cars on display, trade stands and food stands, there's so much see and experience at the Adelaide Motorsport Festival.
