2015 Wakefield Park Spring Historics Wrap-Up and Gallery

Historic Racing Photos Wakefield Park

Welcome home!

We’ve settled in to the working week after a wonderful weekend of historic racing at Wakefield Park, which means it’s about time to start thinking about something a little more fun! So let’s have a chat about the weekend and check out the photos.

Historic Racing Photos Wakefield Park

Our 2015 Wakefield Park Spring Historics race meet was held at Wakefield Park over the 19th and 20th of September. For this event we chose to celebrate the older cars in our ranks with feature events for J, K, L and invited M cars, as well as the diverse and wonderful machines of Regularity and the similarly-diverse and wonderful women and men who drive them, with Regularity and combined J, K, L and Regularity feature events.

Both groups responded wonderfully with full-to-bursting fields of historic sports and racing cars. It truly was a delight to see all of you out on the track having fun and putting in some impressive performances.

Historic Racing Photos Wakefield Park

As it was to see the full field of historic sports and racing cars of all types over the weekend! Each and every car was immaculately presented and beautifully driven, and we’d like to send a huge ‘THANK YOU!’ to everyone who got stuck in to racing over the weekend. Your support is greatly appreciated and your presence makes all of the hard work that goes into organising these events very worthwhile and rewarding.

We’d also like to congratulate everyone for a weekend well raced. There were very few incidents throughout the weekend and your quick, smooth and respectful driving contributed immensely to the smooth running of the event. Not to mention some extremely entertaining racing!

Historic Racing Photos Wakefield Park

Off the track and into the pits and paddock and the atmosphere was no less enjoyable. The happy buzz of socialising around lovely old cars made the grounds of Wakefield Park a wonderful place to explore and it was great to catch up with friends old and new over the weekend. It was also particularly nice to see so many people looking after each other, putting on delicious banquet group lunches and very much getting into the spirit of things. Thank you!

As we always say, this relaxed and friendly atmosphere is one of historic motorsport’s greatest and most rewarding strengths. If you get a chance to come along to an event, make sure to spend some time wandering the pits and paddock, getting up close and personal with the cars and having a chat with their owners and drivers as well as fellow historic racing fans. You’re sure to learn an incredible amount, as well as make a few new friends.

Historic Racing Photos Wakefield Park

Our most important and heartfelt thanks of all goes, as always, to the selfless, talented and generous people who volunteer their time and talents to organising, running and packing up these events while keeping us all safe and exceptionally well looked after. None of this would be possible without you, and we’re endlessly grateful for the enriching and exciting experiences that you give us through your hard work.

From everyone involved in the event, and the sport as a whole – THANK YOU!

Previously, at Wakefield Park…

HSRCA Historic Spring

In just a few days we’ll be making our bi-annual road-trip to Wakefield Park in Goulburn to enjoy some springtime historic racing with our friends. And we’d love for you to join us!

The weekend will see a stunning field of historic sports and racing cars take to the classic track for two packed days of racing and all of the socialising and fun that goes along with that. Our 2015 event will offer special events for two featured groups, along with the usual full weekend of racing for 5th category historic cars.

HSRCA Historic Spring

The first theme for this meeting is JKL, and we have organised feature events for both Race and Regularity over the course of the weekend. We’re thrilled with the support of the JKL racers, who have put together a field 37-strong along with even more drivers in Regularity.

Speaking of which, our second theme for the weekend is Regularity, who have been similarly-wonderful in supporting the event. The MG & JKL Regularity field will see 21 drivers compete, and they will be joined by a further 17 in the Regularity field.

And they, of course, will be joined by close to 200 of their closest friends and race cars! Thanks to all competitors for supporting the event – we will endeavour to make it a magnificent one! To check out the programme, entry list and more, head to the ‘Events’ & Entry Forms page here.

To help crank the engines over before we head off, let’s take a look back at what went down the last time we put rubber to race track at Wakefield Park.

We previously raced at Wakefield Park back in February of this year, when we opened 2015’s accounts with a relaxed, social and action-packed weekend’s historic motorsport. Catch up on all the historic racing action in the wrap-up, photo galleries and links below. We can’t wait to do it all again this weekend!

Change of Venue for September 16th Social Night Featuring Alan Hamilton and Tasman Cup Book Launch

Alan Hamilton

Our upcoming 16th of September social night featuring guest speaker Alan Hamilton will now be held at the Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club.

The evening will now also include the launch of Tony Loxley’s new book Tasman Cup 1964 – 1975. Some of those who participated in that wonderful decade are planning on attending the event and Tony will have copies of both his new book and his older F5000 Thunder available for purchase on the night.

With an impressive motorsport history under his belt, Alan Hamilton’s talk should include something of interest for everyone. Alan has won the Australian hillclimb racing title on four occasions, raced McLarens and Lola derivatives and raced touring cars including claiming second place at Bathurst in 1977 with Colin Bond in one of Allan Moffat’s Falcons.

For Porsche enthusiasts he’s raced plenty of those as well and provided top cars for Alan Jones and Colin Bond, along with F5000 and Atlantic cars for long time driver Alfredo Constanzo. And Alfie and Alan are still at it with McLarens in historic races!

Due to the increase in expected attendance the meeting will now be held in the Rydedale Room at the Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club at 117 Rydedale Road, West Ride. This new location is very close to the West Ryde train station and just minutes from our usual venue. Parking is available under the club.

The evening will kick off at 7:30pm, but if you would like to arrive earlier for a meal we are sure that you’ll find a few familiar faces to share it with!
