So who's up for a bit of this....!

A new road rally exclusively for Ford and Holden cars, which will focus the traditional rivalry between owners of both makes, has been announced to the 2004 Clipsal 500 in Adelaide.

The Ford-Holden Challenge will take a field of around 200 vehicles, split into Ford and Holden camps, from Melbourne to Adelaide via the performance heartland of Central Victoria, the Riverland and the Barossa Valley in mid-March next year.

The inaugural Ford-Holden Challenge will take the traditional high-road from Melbourne to Adelaide, via the performance and street machine heartland of Castlemaine, Shepparton, Mildura, South Australia's Riverland and the Barossa Valley.
