This weekend will see us return to Sydney Motorsport Park for a glorious weekend of summer historic motorsport, and we’d love for you to join us! Let’s take a look at what’s coming up, illustrated by our adventures at June’s Sydney Retro Speedfest.
The event will include a celebration of 50 years of Formula Vee, joined by legends of the racing formula, a feature endurance race for Group S on Sunday morning, the return of J, K and L and, of course, events for the breadth of fifth category historic cars.
Formula Vee races are some of the most consistently exciting that we see at our historic race meetings, and we’ve had a stunning response to our feature events celebrating the category’s half-century.
Along with feature races throughout the weekend, the Vees will be joined by several legends of the category, who will participate in both races and lunchtime demonstration runs. The cars will be housed in a dedicated marquee, and have spilled out to fill the carports opposite.
Moving to cars with roofs – Group S will put on a feature 20-lap endurance race on Sunday morning, and it’s set to be a banger. They hit the 47 car maximum grid in no time, and with such a strong field and their competitive racing, we can’t wait to see what they get up to.
For the first time in the last few years, the men and women of J, K and L will be joining us at Sydney Motorsport Park, and they’ve jumped back in with a spectacular field. These pre-1930s, ’30s, ’40s and ’50s historic racing and sports cars are absolutely wonderful, and their drivers aren’t afraid to give them hefty doses of the old right boot on the track, which is just how we like it!
Flipping to the opposite end of the spectrum, we’ll be joined by a group of Formula 5000s that are set to unleash the thunder in our Q & R Racing events. These mighty machines aren’t something you watch – they’re a sensory experience. If you enjoy historic motorsport, Q & R Racing this November is not to be missed.
And that’s just the warm-up! Groups Q & R Sports, N, M & O, Formula Ford and Regularity will all be forming grids of their own, and will keep Sydney Motorsport Park singing throughout the weekend with magnificent historic racing action.
When you need a break from the racing action, the pits and paddock at HSRCA events are about as friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable as you can find. So make sure to take a wander, make a few new friends, catch up with some old ones and get up close and personal with the cars.
The event will be held at Sydney Motorsport Park, and spectator access is not only unparalleled, but affordable!
Tickets will be available at the gate. Full-price entry is $15 on Saturday, $25 on Sunday and $30 for a weekend pass. A family pass is available for $50, kids under 14 may join in for free and a concession pass is available for $20.
We are thrilled to invite you to attend this upcoming event and look forward to putting on a great weekend this 28th & 29th of November. Join us at Sydney Motorsport Park then, for the HSRCA’s 2015 Summer Historics.
