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!

The programme will air this Sunday, the 14th of September, at 2PM on SBS (check your local guides) and will feature a segment on Sydney Retro Speedfest. So make sure to tune in to SBS then!

HSRCA Regalia Sale

HSRCA Regalia Sale

The HSRCA has held quite a large stock of regalia over the last few years. At the last Committee meeting it was decided to dispense with the continued sale and promotion of HSRCA regalia other than cloth and metal club badges.

While this is unfortunate, it will give all HSRCA members the opportunity to purchase club regalia, as well as ex-Tasman Revival shirts and the like at knock down prices. Below you will find photos of most of the items by price and size. 

If you are interested please email David Medley direct at: david.medley3@bigpond.com 

So that you will receive exactly what you would like please let David know the description, size and delivery address along with a contact number.

In addition to the cost you can expect a postal charge of around $10, depending on the size, weight and your delivery address. These orders will be handled at the end of each week so delivery would be the middle of following week.

Please remember that this will be the last opportunity to add these items to your HSRCA apparel/regalia collection as when they are sold there will be no more.

Please find photos of the regalia below, and download the price list here:
