Wakefield Park 20th Anniversary Spring Historics Meeting Wrap Up and Gallery

Historic Racing at Wakefield Park

Welcome home, and thanks for a stunning weekend of racing at Wakefield Park for our 20th Anniversary Spring Historics!

We’re back after a full weekend of historic racing celebrating the 20th anniversary of our first meeting at the magnificent Wakefield Park. And that means it’s time to take a look back at all of the action!

Historic Racing at Wakefield Park

Goulburn sure pulled out all the stops this weekend. The surrounding hills were green and rolling, yellow canola fields sat snugly at their feet and pristine blue skies soared above, occasionally spotting themselves with puffy white clouds to add a little whimsy to the backdrop. Add to that the finest weather we can imagine this occasionally-cantankerous part of the world mustering, and we had all the makings for a perfect weekend.

Oh, and we can’t forget the few hundred beautifully-prepared historic sports and racing cars, and the fine group of men and women who love them to share it all with!

Historic Racing at Wakefield Park

Groups J, K and L were majestic as the feature category for the event, and were kept busy all weekend contesting events for both race and regularity groups, along with plenty of fun and games in the pits and paddock.

It’s always a joy to see these cars out at speed and in force and their area in the paddock is a very friendly, relaxed and fun place to enjoy a few moments.

Wakefield Park Historic Racing

Freedom to explore the pits and paddock, chat with fellow historic motorsport aficionados and enjoy the cars and buzz is one of the great aspects of historic motorsport. Our events are friendly and relaxed, because they’re mostly about good friends getting together to catch up and enjoy life around a shared common interest.

This weekend was no exception and we implore anyone who comes along to one of our events to take advantage of that freedom, enjoy the cars and make a few new friends!

Historic Racing at Wakefield Park

Similarly-majestic were the owners, drivers and crews from the full entry of 5th category historic cars who joined us for the weekend’s historic motorsport. We enjoyed full fields of beautifully-prepared historic racing and sports cars from each group and it’s a joy to have such great support from the community.

The racing throughout the weekend was exciting, well-driven and great to watch. We give a great deal of credit for the smooth running of the weekend to the respectful and clean racing demonstrated by everyone involved. Well done, and thank you!

Historic Racing at Wakefield Park

When it comes to the smooth running of our events, however, it is our gracious and selfless volunteers who deserve the most thanks. As always we wish to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supports the Club and our community through their tireless efforts and expertise – you provide us with these unforgettable opportunities to enjoy our cars and our friends. THANK YOU!

Simpson Unveil ‘Hybrid Sport’ Frontal Head Restraint at Wakefield Park

Hybrid Sport Frontal Head Restraint

Simpson Safety Equipment Australia will be unveiling the all new FIA Simpson Hybrid Sport Frontal Head Restraint at Wakefield Park this weekend.

Australia will be the first country outside of the US to be offering competitors the re-engineered, re-designed FIA homologated Hybrid Sport Frontal Head Restraint device.

The ‘Sport’ sits in between Simpson’s full Carbon Hybrid Pro and the economical carbon composite Rage version in terms of taking performance features from both, to deliver a FHR device that not only performs extremely well but also offers improved ergonomics for superior comfort in a sleek, new, lightweight design, whilst remaining the same price as the popular, budget conscious Rage at $789.00.

The Simpson Hybrid range of FIA Head and Neck Restraints are the only devices on the market that protects during front, offset and side impacts.

The new designs allow for easy entry / exit of the race car, the Hybrid doesn’t transfer ‘load’ to the body, has the flexibility of one device for any seating position be it in a formula type race car to a more upright seating position and works in conjunction with existing seat/harness configurations.

Lady racers also have the availability of a custom fitting service to make sure the device fits properly for comfort and performance.

Quickly gaining a reputation for maximum comfort, manoeuvrability and superior overall performance the Hybrid Pro has been sweeping across European racing and rallying circles in 2014. Now it’s Australia’s racers who are in the enviable position to be the first in the world to pioneer the new Simpson FIA Hybrid Sport.

Contact Greg Yard, Simpson Safety Equipment Australia; p. 02 9545 6662, m. 0407 108 103 e. sales@simpsonraceproducts.com.au, w. www.simpsonraceproducts.com.au, f. Simpson-aust  for more details or come visit us in the pits .

Historic Racing at Wakefield Park

It’s about time to start thinking about the road trip to Goulburn and Wakefield Park for our upcoming Spring Historics, so let’s take a moment to warm up by reminiscing about our previous trip there, which was back in February for our first event of the year.

Historic Racing at Wakefield Park

But first – a note about what next weekend’s about! For our Spring Historics this year we’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of the first race meeting at Wakefield Park. And since groups J, K and L have always had a special relationship with the track (and the fans), we’re putting on feature events for the groups – classic racing with classic cars.

Our J, K & L features have always been very successful and a lot of fun, and it’s brilliant to see the older cars out being driven in the spirit for which they were designed. Come along and enjoy the action!

Historic Racing at Wakefield Park

Our previous visit to Wakefield Park was in February 2014, for our Summer Historics. There was no set theme or feature for the event, so we spent the weekend enjoying our cars and each other’s company, and getting back into the swing of things after the holiday break, packing it with good old-fashioned historic racing.

It was a smooth and relaxed event, with Goulburn doing its level best to provide a magnificent backdrop for a Historic Summer. Catch up on all the action in our wrap up, and the photo galleries below, and we’ll see you back at Wakefield Park very soon!
