Members of the Veteran Car Club of WA Esperance branch made the long drive to Gerladton to meet up with other vintage car clubs from across the state.

Nine cars filled with 17 people made the 1150km journey to the 2017 Rally West, a meeting held every seven years.

The already arduous drive was made all the longer due to the cars having a maximum speed of 70 km/h but the group still averaged around 300 km per day.

The event featured 140 cars from across WA and involved a lot of sight seeing at various places around the Geraldton region.

The Esperance branch began their week-long return trip on the weekend and were expected to cover around 1500km on the way home.
