Annual General Meeting 2017

Denistone Sporting Club, 59 Chatham Road, West Ryde

At 8.00 pm on Wednesday 18 October 2017

Please join us for our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday evening 18 October next.

The AGM is important because it is an opportunity to review the year and invite comment on the way the HSRCA responds to the challenges and opportunities that lie before us. We are also proposing two life membership for people who have provided long and sacrificial service. And we have some club trophies to award. Celebrate with them.  

The last year has been successful on important fronts, goodwill continues to be strong and office bearers have worked tirelessly in the interests of the club. Sadly, we have lost members who have passed away and some members are also grieving from loss of loved ones whose life they have shared for decades. Some also have felt it is time to retire from often very long service. So it is a time for reflection and some sadness but also thankfulness for friendships and service to historic motor sport.  

As happened last year, meals are free, and whilst some have suggested that accounted for the exceptional turn out of 60 people, I am convinced it reflected strong interest in the future of the club. We hope we can do justice to your expectations.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Richard Cardew,
President

We are continuing our efforts to provide a place for all compatible and appropriate cars to race and welcome enquiries and feedback about opportunities.

The event will see many significant trophies awarded, subject to sufficient numbers in the relevant categories. Some of these are for specific races while others cover the whole year. Please see below for the full list.

We are continuing to grow the super sprint format’s presence at HSRCA meetings, as it has proved successful on several fronts. We enjoyed the participation of some very interesting cars at our September meeting and hope to see the trend continue in November.

We greatly appreciate your involvement in HSRCA events and the greater historic motorsport community. Feedback from competitors and spectators at our Autumn and Spring meetings has been very encouraging and we are keen to provide another brilliant weekend. Thank you for your continued support.

Please pass this invitation on to friends and family who would enjoy a fun weekend out with lovely old cars, and encourage them to get involved.

Announcing the HSRCA’s 2017 Summer Festival

The Summer Festival is set for the 11th & 12th of November, 2017, and will see the HSRCA returning to Sydney Motorsport Park for the first time in 2017 to hold our biggest historic race meeting of the year.

The return to Sydney Motorsport Park’s flowing curves and longer straights will give some of the more powerful cars a chance to stretch their legs, and will offer a great mix of challenges and opportunities for exciting competition. Its excellent facilities and proximity to the city make it a great place to hold a race meeting, and we’re looking forward to putting together a brilliant meeting to close out 2017’s historic motorsport season.

The focus of this meeting will be on providing plenty of quality track time and a safe, smoothly-run opportunity to get out and enjoy our historic sports and racing cars, good company and a festive atmosphere representative of the golden age of the sport.

Groups LMO and S will be featured during the Summer Festival and will be offered feature events including the classic Dawson-Damer trophy and the always-exciting Group S Enduro Relay.

Keeping the circuit singing all weekend will be races for 5th Category historic groups, including JKLM, OPQR, N, S and Formulas Ford, Junior and Vee. Regularity trials and super sprints will also be offered, as will a speed (non-race) event for racing and sports racing cars.

In particular we would like to know the level of interest in a speed event for racing and sports racing cars. It is an opportunity to give some very special cars a fun run or offer someone else a drive in your car.  Please let us know and talk to Col Haste about it on 0408 865 629 or via email at hastbld@bigpond.com.

Most 5th Category groups will have trophy events to decide their perpetual trophies over the course of the weekend, and we’re looking forward to interesting fields and great races as those are decided.

HSRCA members will, of course, be offered the $50 members’ discount for entry to the meeting. If you’re not a member and would like to become one ahead of the meeting, please head to our membership page here and join the Club. The Club offers a wonderful camaraderie and a varied programme of opportunities to enjoy the historic motorsport community, both social and competitive.
