The Targa Florio Comes to Australia

Targa Florio Australia Tribute

The Targa Florio, one of the world’s longest lasting and most iconic motor races, will arrive in Australia this November as the Targa Florio Australian Tribute, and we’re invited to take part.

The Targa Florio was a brutally tough endurance sports car race that began in Sicily in 1906. It became a part of the World Sportscar Championship in the ’50s, but was removed from the championship in 1973 after a serious of fatal accidents proved that it had become far too dangerous.

Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2016, the event still exists today as a regulated road race with special timed stages. It features a classic event, the Targa Florio Classic, which is a brilliant event run as a historic regularity race for cars built before 1977.

The Targa Florio Australian Tribute is a classic car regularity event that will be held from the 29th of November to the 3rd of December, 2017. It will cover a 1175 kilometre route through some of Victoria’s most scenic locations, including both regional and city destinations, and give spectators a chance to enjoy the cars and festivities. It will be run in the same way as the Targa Florio in Sicily, as a regulated road race with timed stages.

We would love to get an HSRCA crew together to take part in the event. Please contact Richard Cardew if you’re interested, and head to the Targa Florio Australian Tribute website here for more details.

2017 Spring Festival at Wakefield Park: Photos and Wrap-Up

2017 HSRCA Spring Festival

Kicking off on Friday the 1st of September and going through to Sunday the 3rd of September, the 2017 Spring Festival saw us celebrating historic motorsport, magic old machines and good friends at Wakefield Park, nestled in Goulburn’s picturesque countryside.

Our second historic race meeting of 2017 fell on the first weekend of spring, and Goulburn delivered a stunner. Cool temperatures and mostly sunny skies made for perfect conditions for the cars and temperate weather for all of us to enjoy.

2017 HSRCA Spring Festival

The weekend was friendly and relaxed, setting the stage for some great races. It kicked off on Friday, with Wakefield Park hosting private practice. This allowed competitors to get settled in for the weekend and spend some time dialling in their cars before Saturday turned up the wick for qualifying and races launched on Saturday afternoon, continuing through Sunday.

This time out we were joined by eight grids, which included:

  • Groups L & M and Formulas Junior & Vee
  • Groups O, Q & R
  • Regularity
  • Formula Ford
  • Group N Under 3000cc
  • Group N Over 3000cc
  • Group S
  • Super Sprint

2017 HSRCA Spring Festival

The event was well supported and we were pleased to be joined by more than a few new competitors, as well as some interesting and new (to us) cars. The support of Group N and the Historic Touring Car Association was particularly impressive, with the entry going above the maximum track density at Wakefield Park, resulting in two good grids. Group S entries were also very strong, and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the excellent grid of Groups O, Q & R cars blasting around Wakefield Park.

Group L, Formula Junior, Sports 2000, and the Regularity team event all competed for trophies, while Group N and Group S hosted rounds of their 2017 competition season. The Regularity endurance event was a lot of fun and featured a great field, and the Super Sprint event is strengthening in its support and proving to work very well.

2017 HSRCA Spring Festival

Thanks to competitors, entrants and teams for the support! The racing, regularity and super sprinting was uniformly excellent, featuring some exciting dices and consistent displays of skill and respectful racing conduct. This ensured that the program ran smoothly and allowed us to keep the track singing all weekend long.

A huge amount of work goes in to preparing and running a historic car at a race meeting, and we’re extremely grateful for the support of everyone involved. Praise is also due for the beautiful preparation and presentation of the cars.

2017 HSRCA Spring Festival

Thanks also to the Falcon GT, Mustang and Torana Clubs of Canberra for taking a run out to our event and joining in the fun. The clubs put on a beautiful display of classic muscle and enjoyed some track time over lunch on Sunday. We look forward to catching up at an event in the future.

2017 HSRCA Spring Festival

The community that makes up the HSRCA is one of the most welcoming and friendly around, and everyone was on fine form this weekend. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the pits and paddock full of people catching up, telling tales of racing glory, commiserating with each other about mechanical mishaps and generally enjoying good company.

If you attend a historic motorsport event, make sure to take some time to explore the pits and paddock, get up close to the cars and get to know some of the sport’s lovely people.

2017 HSRCA Spring Festival

As always, I close with the most important part of our wrap up – an impossibly large ‘THANK YOU!’ to the many volunteers who make all of this possible.

We, and everyone involved in the club and its activities, are endlessly grateful for the time, talent and hard work that you devote to motorsport and its community. It is your selfless support that allows us the opportunity to enjoy these old cars and the wonderful community that goes along with them.

Thank you!

With that, it’s time to move on to the pictures!

Ex-RAAF Fighter Pilot Brian Weston to Speak at September 20th Social Night

Brian Weston will be joining us to speak during our fourth social evening of 2017, which will be held at the usual venue, Denistone Sports Club, 59 Chatham Road in West Ryde starting at 7:30PM on Wednesday the 20th of September. As always, come along a little earlier to enjoy the bistro and a drink with friends.

Most members will be familiar with Brian Weston and his BRG Group Sb Midget that he has been racing for nearly the past 20 years. But what you may not know is that Brian has an even longer history of travelling quickly.

Brian Weston joined the RAAF at 17 years of age with a dream of flying the Australia’s air force jets. After 34 years, he retired having flown Winjeel, Chipmunk, Jet Provost, Hawker Hunter, Macchi MB-326H, Vampire, Avon Sabre, Mirage IIIO and F/A-18A Hornet aircraft.

His career included postings to all four RAAF fighter squadrons, including graduating from the RAAF fighter combat instructor course, and instructing on RAAF Mirage IIIO aircraft at the air force school for fighter pilots – No 2 (Fighter) Operational Conversion Unit. One of only a handful of RAAF pilots who flew tours in three generations of RAAF fighter aircraft – the Avon Sabre, Mirage IIIO and F/A-18A Hornet – he is well-placed to talk about his experiences flying fighters, especially flying the Mirage IIIO on which he accrued 2,400 flying hours.

As usual, Brian’s story will begin at 7:30 at the Denistone Sports Club but members are welcome to arrive earlier for some food, drink and socialising.

Finally, you still have a couple of days for a last-minute entry for our 2-3 September Wakefield Park event; entries close 18 August.


Group N Historic Touring Cars at the FoSC Winter One-Day Sydney Motorsport Park

The Group N cars of the Historic Touring Car Association of NSW recently contested the fourth round of their 2017 series at Sydney Motorsport Park with Festival of Sporting Cars. Read on, and enjoy Stephen Pitman’s report of the event.

The Historic Touring Car Association will join us at Wakefield Park in just a few weeks for the penultimate points round of their season, which will be contested at the Spring Festival.

FoSC Winter Invitation Eastern Creek Druitt Circuit 1 Day Meeting Saturday 22nd July 2017

August 2, 2017

PAYCE Historic Touring Cars Group N
Report by Stephen Pitman. Images by Taylor Pember, Mark Walsh & Daniel Walters.

Braving a brisk and early start, nineteen of our members turned out to experience an enjoyable day of motor racing in warm winter weather and a relaxing atmosphere at the FoSC Winter Invitational.

FOSC organisers praised the standard of on-track driving, highlighting Group N’s performance.

This was also a meeting that continued the trend of younger drivers being introduced to the group N category. Drivers such as Adrian Macri, Jamie Tilley, Andrew Taite, and Luke Broadhead, who featured in the Mark Broadhead invitation regularity event, joined the competition at the event.

Again I stress the importance of the regularity category as an introduction to the Group N category. These young drivers competed in all of the races and displayed extraordinary driving skill to more than cement their position in the Group N ranks.

Both aspects of the day were very encouraging to see.

Qualifying Results

Group Nc
Jamie Tilley 1.11.5
Andrew Taite 1.11.7
Wayne Rogerson 1.14.5

Group Nb
Harry Bargwanna 1.13.3
John Harrison 1.15.3
Chris Collett 1.16.8

Race 1

Although Jamie Tilley had pole, he just could not master the start, which allowed Andrew Taite in the Chevrolet Camaro to lead into the first corner and ultimately go on to take the win ahead of Jamie in the Ford Mustang. Cam Worner in the GT Falcon finished in third.

Honours in the Nb placing went to Chris Collet in the Morris Cooper S with a win, Matt Russell Morris Cooper S in second and the EH Holden of Adrian Macri rounding out the podium with third.

Race 2

Again Jamie Tilley bogged down on the start to hand the lead advantage to Andrew Taite in the Chevrolet Camaro, ultimately resulting in an identical result to in Race 1.

Nb placings were slightly different this time out, with Chris Collett in the Morris Cooper S taking the win followed by Adrian Macri in the Holden EH second and David Wheatley in third position. A result due to the DNF of the Matt Russell Morris Cooper S. Harry Bargwanna also recorded a DNF in this event for reasons unknown.

Race 3

Andrew Taite in the Chevrolet Camaro had the best of the start again to lead Jamie Tilley in the Ford Mustang for the best part of the early laps of the event. This time, however, Jamie made a successful passing move to take the lead around the end of lap 3. Andrew and Jamie put on an entertaining display of driving, Andrew maintaining the pressure on Jamie until the end unable to slip by Jamie, who held on to experience a well-earned win. Cam Worner in the Falcon GT finished in third position.

Chris Collett would again be first on the podium for the Group Nb category, once again followed by Adrian Macri in the EH Holden and Barry Jessop in his EH Holden, resplendent in the new livery of diamond white and contrasting white roof. There is a rumour that the car was painted in a dodgy suburb in the States, explaining the bullet holes in the rear boot lid.

Mark Broadhead Invitation Regularity Event

This event would display how important regularity is to blooding new members and younger drivers to our sport. While it received a comparably low participation rate, it allowed for some of the more experienced drivers to back off a little and let these new competitors get some experience under their belts to feel comfortable driving at speed in simulated race conditions.

At the sharp end of the field the Holden of a Macri put on a display of co-ordinated driving with fellow competitors to assist the new comers in finding their feet. Dave Wheatley Morris Cooper S supported newcomer Francis Meier also in a Morris Cooper S, demonstrating the race lines to be used to create fast lap times.

Also, and even though he has been around for some time, Nathan Swain has successfully completed his Observed Licence Test to attain his right to start competing. Congratulations Nathan! Nathan will be adding to the numbers of EH Holdens already competing. There is no mistaking Nathan – he resembles Captain Risky although I am assured he does drive a lot better.

As a club it is pleasing to see the emergence of this new talent to our ranks and that our promotion to attract new members is working. So, I call on all existing members to provide support where ever you can to help establish a firm place in our club moving forward.

Looking Forward to the HSRCA Spring Festival at Wakefield Park

HSRCA 2017 Spring Festival

Entries are now open for the HSRCA’s 2017 Spring Festival at Wakefield Park, to be held over the 2nd & 3rd of September, with private practice offered on the 1st. You are most cordially invited!

Click this link to enter the event via the CAMS Members’ Portal, and please share this invitation with friends and family.

We hope to find you well, and hope that you are enjoying Sydney’s currently spectacular winter driving weather!

Preparations for the upcoming Spring Festival of historic motorsport at Wakefield Park are progressing smoothly. We still have just under a month and a half to go before the official close of entry date on the 18th of August, and we are pleased to see entries flowing in and fields developing nicely.

Your early entry helps us to judge the fields, plan the programme, sort out the garages and manage all of the nitty gritty that does into preparing a race meeting, so thank you.

We understand (through much first-hand experience) that historic sports, race and touring cars can be cantankerous beasts, and that occasionally life can get in the way of motorsport. So, in the event that you do place an entry that you’re unable to take advantage of, you can be confident in our efforts to refund you.

Remember that we offer a $50 discounted entry to race meetings for HSRCA members and that, in an effort to encourage sharing, the entry fee for same driver, second entry and same car, second driver entries will be the same. Each driver is entitled to the discount once only.

If you have trouble convincing Cams Event Entry to apply the discount, please manually deduct the $50 when you pay for your entry and let us know via an email to treasurer@hsrca.com, including a note of your membership number.

The Spring Festival is being run as a three-day event, with private practice to be held on Friday the 1st of September and run by Wakefield Park, please contact them directly to register. Garages and carports allocated for the weekend will be available from Friday.

For those reluctant or unable to use CAMS Event Entry please contact the club on members@hsrca.org.au or (02) 9948 4743 and request a traditional entry form.

Looking at the early fields we should see some great motorsport at the Spring Festival.

The Group S field in particular is building well and should put on some exciting races as they head into the back end of their 2017 season. Similarly, Group N is looking good for round 5 of their season, and Regularity should see a strong entry and an interesting field.

We’re also happy to see a good start to Formula Ford entries and OPQR cars – in particular a strong set of Group R drivers looking to stretch their legs at Wakefield Park.

Our efforts to make historic motorsport as inclusive, active and enjoyable as possible continue, and we are looking forward to the return of the super sprint category, which is open to cars built before 1998.

The weekend will see trophies decided for both winners and runners up of the Regularity team event as well as the new Roger Ealand Trophy for Formula Junior and a trophy for groups JKL if entries are there to support it.

If you’d like to join us as a spectator, remember that HSRCA membership includes entry to our race meetings and race meeting entry includes guest passes to the event.

If you are not a member and are not entering, tickets will be available at the gate each day. Kids under 16 get in free, adult tickets are $20 for a day or $30 for a weekend pass and concession tickets are $15 or $25 for the weekend.

As always, we deeply appreciate your support of the HSRCA, its events and the historic community at large. We will continue to invest every effort into providing a fun, festive and safe Spring Festival.

With every good wish for a memorable weekend of classic motorsport,

The HSRCA Race Committee

Introducing the HSRCA’s 2017 Summer Festival

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.

We expect to open entries in mid-August.

On that note, entry is now open for the upcoming Spring Festival, which will be held at Wakefield Park over the 2nd and 3rd of September, with private practice available on Friday the 1st. Come along and enjoy an exciting weekend of motorsport in Goulburn’s stunning countryside.

Head to the CAMS website to place your entry.

As always, we are extremely grateful for your support and contribution to the sport of historic racing. We will continue our efforts to put on events that are safe and exciting, offer good value and high quality track time, and show off the depth of motorsport history in Australia by keeping engines hot, rubber melty and race tracks busy.

The 2017 Sydney Classic Speed Festival was held over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, the 10th & 11th of June, at Sydney Motorsport Park. Photographer Jeremy Braithwaite was at the event, and has kindly shared some of his images with us here.

The event saw a great collection of historic racing and sports cars gather at Sydney’s classic circuit for a winter’s weekend of historic competition. Awesome examples of the mighty Formula 5000s and the historic touring cars of Groups C & A joined strong fields of Formula Ford, Groups S & N, Sports Cars, BMW E30s and Regularity.

We were thrilled to see many HSRCA competitors supporting the event, which drew a strong field and put on exciting races in tricky conditions. We look forward to next year’s event!

Jeremy Braithwaite has kindly shared some photos from the weekend, and you can enjoy them over in the gallery. Hit the link below:

The number of events per category will be varied to suit the preferences of category members while at the same time providing similar track time for all grids. Contact your category manager if you have suggestions to make.

The super sprint is open to cars built before 1998 and will include the large and fast cars. Cars built within a few years of that date will be considered in special cases.

We have secured exclusive use of the Wakefield Park circuit for private practice on Friday the 1st of September. This means that garages and carports allocated for the weekend will also be available from Friday. Private practice itself will be run by Wakefield Park and payment should be made directly to them.

We have retained the increased $50 members’ discount for entry to race meetings and intend to for the foreseeable future. Note that, in an effort to encourage sharing, the entry fee for same driver, second entry and same car, second driver entries will be the same. Each driver is entitled to the discount once only.

Feedback from the Autumn Festival demonstrated some issues in redeeming the $50 members’ discount when entering through CAMS Event Entry. Currently, the system works best if the HSRCA is registered with CAMS Event Entry as the entrants’ principal or first club and the membership expiry date is accurate. The discount does not apply after the closing date for entries.

Should the system not automatically deduct the membership discount when you place your entry, please manually deduct the $50 when making your payment via Paypal, electronic transfer or cheque and inform the club via email to treasurer@hsrca.com. Please include your membership number in this email.

If you’re not a member and would like to become one, please see the attached documentation. The members’ discount offers a tremendous value, especially if you intend on entering more than one event in a year. It will apply to new member applications received by the 1st of August. Applications will need to be received and processed before new applicants receive the benefit for this event.

For those reluctant or unable to use CAMS Event Entry please contact the club on members@hsrca.org.au or (02) 9948 4743 and request a traditional entry form.

Your involvement in HSRCA events and the historic racing community at large is greatly appreciated. We have been encouraged by the feedback from drivers at our recent meetings, and are keen to provide a very enjoyable weekend. Thank you for making this such a rewarding, exciting and welcoming pursuit.

Please pass this invitation on to friends and family and encourage them to get involved – the more friends we have to race and talk cars with, the better!

We look forward to taking to the track with you this September.

With every good wish for a memorable weekend of classic motorsport,
The HSRCA Race Committee

Upcoming 2017 HSRCA Historic Race Meetings

Wakefield Park Spring Festival – September 2 & 3

Sydney Motorsport Park Summer Festival – November 11 & 12


It’s the Pits – J, K & L Newsletter May, 2017

JKL Newsletter May 2017

After a brief summer hiatus, Mal Reid’s J, K & L newsletter has returned and been sent out to drivers of pre-1930s, ’30s, ’40s and ’50s historic racing and sports cars.

It’s also now available for you to peruse on the Club website. Read on, and enjoy!

It’s the Pits, May 2017

With the traditional HSRCA February summer meeting moved back to a later date (and hopefully a little more pleasant weather), the first major outing for our old JKL bangers was the annual Phillip Island extravaganza.

As usual there were a number of cars (11) from all over the world to give the locals a hard time and they proved too quick all weekend.

Young Will Nuthall from the UK in the T53 Cooper showed the way in qualifying, cutting a very tidy 1.49.86 after only 4 laps. He led our old mate Julian Bronson visiting this time in the very impressive Scarab GP and running a 1.52.

The locals finally got a look in with Nick McDonald coming to grips with father Ian’s Scott Holden Repco 1.55.07, 3rd. David Reid in the Faux Paus 1.55.15, UK regular Rob Jolley in the big silver Lister Jaguar 1.55.66 next and yours truly finally getting some track time in Prad Mk3 Repco Holden only a smidge behind with a 1.55.9.

Paddins Dowling (UK) ERA, John Clark (UK) T51 Cooper and the mighty flat head ford V8 of Graeme Raper rounding out the top 10 in the George Reed Monoskate, a very impressive result from Graeme and the big Ford in very good company.

Racing all weekend was as good as it gets on this wonderful circuit. This is now a full three-day meeting and, following qualifying on Friday morning, the first race was on in the afternoon. The visitors out front had no trouble keeping the locals at bay but they did share the wins around.

Will Nuthall suffered all weekend with a lack of 1st gear in the T53 and was slow away from the starter’s flag, but once going really showed his class. However, it was the Scarab first over the line by a reasonable margin first from Rob Jolley and then Nuthall 3rd. The 2 Holden Repco Specials, Scott and Prad were next from the mighty Dalro Jag with Les Wright as usual at the wheel.

It’s always a touchy subject down south and it’s advisable not to predict the weather as it can change in an instant. Saturday dawned bright and sunny and so it was to be for the whole week end. Probably as good a weather as I’ve seen in the 39 years since I first ran Monoskate at  the 78 meeting. Yes we’ve had some beaut days but to get 3 in a row was great and it brought in the crowds from all over.

Readying to Race at the HSRCA’s Autumn Festival

Wakefield Park Autumn Festival

Our first race meeting of 2017 is coming up this April 8th & 9th, and we’re nearly ready to race.

The meeting will be held at Wakefield Park and takes place at the start of school holidays, so it’s a good idea to book accommodation early. If you have a vehicle with self-contained ablution that you use for accommodation and would like to stay at the circuit, contact Wakefield Park.

Championship Rounds

The meeting will host rounds of the annual point score for Groups N, S and Formulas Ford, Junior and Vee.

Probable Grids

Entrants will be grouped in much the same way as last September. A super sprint will be available for late model cars that do not fit 5th category groups, as well as Group U. We will schedule 5 or 6 events for this category of shorter duration than other events so that overall track time is equal.

Adding to the Action

For this meeting we have organised activities to entertain children, including a jumping castle and face painting, so let your friends know. A good deal of local publicity is being arranged so we expect a healthy spectator turnout.

On the Saturday, an open day will be held at the Mercure Motel where we will have a selection of cars on display and will be inviting people to head down the road and watch such cars in action. There will be pre- and post-event media announcements and live broadcasting on the day.

We will be holding the usual BBQ for officials, to which all are invited. This will take place on Saturday late afternoon and continue on through the early evening.

Extra Facilities

The HSRCA will have a marquee and some tables and chairs for those wishing to relax. The media centre will be available as a quiet space for folks.

Garages and Carports

The circuit will be ours on Friday and garages and carports will be accessible from early morning. Scrutineering will take place at the usual time.

We will post the allocation on the web soon and provide updates. We will do our best to meet all requests.

Gate Entry and Passes

As we did last year, entry to the circuit on Saturday will be free before 8am (the drivers briefing) and people can collect documents and passes after they arrive.

Entry documents will also be available via the website. If you wish to have passes set aside for collection at the gate after 8am on Saturday morning, please let us know so that we can assist with arrangements.  This process avoids congestion for arrival on Saturday morning and saves anxiety and cost about the post.

New Noise Meter

An important reminder is that Wakefield Park now has a very sensitive noise meter that identifies the car that trips it by photo, emailing circuit management immediately. They are obliged to be rigorous so take some means of dealing with it if in doubt.

Fuel

Goulburn airport has been advised of our meeting and Avgas can be purchased there. Other fuel can be supplied by Wakefield Park. There is a 40 litre limit to storage in garages and car ports also, again an external requirement.

Fun

We are there for enjoyment. The last two meetings have been relatively free of incidents and have finished each day ahead of schedule. That encourages us to build in a little more track time. Thank you for being considerate to each other, it helps make for a happy time.

Spectators

The effort to attract more spectators may result in more children on site and it will be important to ensure that they are safe. Appropriate procedures are in preparation, particularly to manage spectator movement as cars leave the circuit and within the paddock. Please take care.

Support and Sponsorship

The Goulburn Information Centre are helping us with promotion. We will display two cars at the Mercure Motel Open Day on 8 April, a Valiant Charger that actually ran at Bathurst and Garry Hancock’s Brabham BT23. Gosford Classic Car Museum is providing the Charger. Wakefield Park Raceway people are very supportive of our intentions and particularly helpful.

Enquiries

For on track matters contact Mark Stockwell.

Support facilities contact Richard Cardew or André Breit.

All other enquiries to Wes Dayton who will pass them on to the appropriate person.

Join Us for the 29th March Social Meeting Featuring Dave Mawer

Dave Mawer

The first HSRCA social evening of 2017 will be held on the 29th of March at the Denistone Sports Club and feature the brilliant motorsport engineer Dave Mawer.

Dave will regale us with many ‘war’ stories from his considerable involvement in motorsport both at the track and in the workshop.

From his early days an an apprentice tool-maker with Hoover, Dave moved through the motorsport ranks. He assisted a veritable who’s who of racing and built many successful race cars along the way.

His efforts were recognised by CAMS in 2015 with the Phil Irving Award for an outstanding contribution to engineering excellence in motorsport at an Australian and international level. Previous winners of the award include HSRCA patron Ron Tauranac, as well as Ron Harrop, Ivan Tighe, Peter Holinger and more. Heady company indeed.

It’s going to be an entertaining evening at the usual venue, Denistone Sports Club at 59 Chatham Road Wester Ryde. The evening will kick off at 7:30PM, but why not arrive earlier for a drink and a bite from the bistro?

Your Invitation to the HSRCA’s 2017 Historic Autumn Race Meeting at Wakefield Park

Historic Autumn Wakefield Park

Entries are now open for the HSRCA’s 2017 Autumn Historics at Wakefield Park, to be held this April 8th & 9th. You are most cordially invited!

Click this link to enter via the CAMS Members’ Portal.

You are most cordially invited to join us at Wakefield Park this 8th & 9th of April, 2017, for our first historic race meeting of the year.

Entry to the event is now open through CAMS Motor Event Entry, which is now accessed through the CAMS Members’ Portal. Click this handy link to enter via the CAMS homepage.

The HSRCA Autumn Historic meeting at Wakefield Park has been designed to provide a relaxed and inclusive weekend of historic motorsport shared with good friends. Our traditional historic categories are most welcome and will, as always, be the feature of this meeting.

Entry numbers permitting, the meeting will include:

  • Races and regularity trials for all of the usual 5th category historic classes featuring race, sports and touring cars from the ‘30s to the ‘80s
  • Invited classes for a super sprint and regularity trial
  • An increased members’ discount of $50

The program is being designed for a maximum of 9 grids, more likely 8, so that track time is generous.

The number of events per category will be varied to suit the preferences of category members and obtain similar track time for all grids. Contact your category manager if you have suggestions to make.

We have secured Wakefield Park for Friday the 7th of April so that we can offer private practice exclusively for HSRCA entrants. This means that we’re also able to make garages and carports allocated for the weekend available from Friday. The private practice itself will be run by Wakefield Park and payment should be made to them.

To encourage participation and the friendly, buzzing atmosphere that is such an important aspect of HSRCA events, we have been in contact with other motorsport groups across New South Wales. We are working to introduce new people to our wonderful community and for the April race meeting we plan on offering a super sprint and regularity trial for invited classes of these groups.

These groups will include cars constructed after 1987 and before 1998. Such cars will, however, need to be representative of those that raced in that period and compatible with other entrants. Consequently, the HSRCA reserves the right to accept or reject entries for these categories based on these and other risk mitigation criteria. Please contact David Ellis for guidance.

In a further effort to give back to our membership and provide a more inclusive racing community, we have also increased the members’ discount for entry to race meetings to $50. This makes the HSRCA membership a great value, especially if you plan on competing in more than one race meeting each year.

If you’re not a member and would like to become one, please see the attached documentation. The increased member discount will apply to new member applications received by the 3rd of March 2017. Applications will need to be received and processed before new applicants enter this event.

For those reluctant or unable to use CAMS Event Entry please contact the club on members@hsrca.org.au or 9988 4743 and request a traditional entry form.

We greatly appreciate your involvement in both our events and the historic racing community at large. Your support is vital to the health of the sport, and is what makes it such an exciting and rewarding pursuit. We hope that you join us once more for a great weekend of motorsport!

Please pass this invitation on to friends and family and encourage them to get involved – the more friends we have to race and talk cars with, the better!

We look forward to catching up with everyone this April 8th and 9th.

With every good wish for a memorable weekend of classic motorsport,
The HSRCA Race Committee

Come Along to CARnivale this Australia Day

Ron Tauranac Parramatta Park

Join us at CARnivale this Australia Day, Thursday the 26th of January, where the HSRCA will be honoured by hosting the featured display.

We will have several cars on display that ran at Parramatta Park back in the 1950s. These will include the Maybach, Q-Type MG, Cooper MG and Day Special. Two RALTs will also be on display demonstrating the early and late eras of Ron Tauranac’s contribution to motorsport.

The event will celebrate Parramatta Park’s relatively unknown motorsport history. In the early-to-mid ’50s the park hosted a two-mile grand prix circuit which saw the likes of Sir Jack Brabham, Stan Jones and Ron Tauranac race in front of huge crowds of spectators. This year’s event commemorates the 60th anniversary of the closure of the circuit.

The broader CARnivale display will feature hundreds of cars, bikes and other vehicles from all manner of motoring history and pursuit. Other attractions include Sydney’s biggest hot air balloon sky display, which kicks off the day at 6AM, the Big BBQ, the Crescent featuring entertainment for kids, a free all-ages Triple J Hottest 100 party and a fireworks display to wrap up the day at 9PM.

CARnivale kicks off officially at 9AM, but you’ll find plenty to see and do in the area before then. It will be held at Parramatta Park on the corner of Pitt St & Macquarie St, Parramatta. For more details head to the Australia Day in Parramatta website here.

2016 Tasman Trophy: Wrap-Up and Photo Galleries

2016 Tasman Trophy

After a lovely weekend celebrating the golden era of the Tasman Series with the 2016 Tasman Trophy, it’s time to hang up our gloves for the year and prepare for the holiday season. Before we do that, however, let’s wrap the event up and enjoy some photos!

The 2016 Tasman Trophy was held over the 19th and 20th of November and saw an excellent entry of historic sports and racing cars take to Sydney Motorsport Park for a spot of historic motorsport. Thank you to everyone involved for getting stuck in and putting on an action-packed and friendly weekend of racing.

2016 Tasman Trophy

We arrived at Sydney Motorsport Park on Friday the 18th to hold a private practice day for competitors. The day gave everyone a chance to get settled in, catch up and ensure their cars were nicely sorted for the weekend. Sydney put on a scorcher on Friday, so hats off to everyone who braved the inferno!

The cars were, as always, spectacular to behold and beautifully prepared. It’s a joy to see them so well cared for and in tremendous racing shape, and that care greatly contributes to a smooth weekend of racing. The work and tinkering that we see at the track, considerable that it is, is but a fraction of the preparation that goes into getting the cars there in the first place. So, thank you!

2016 Tasman Trophy

Saturday morning set the stage with final practice and qualification up until lunch, after which racing kicked off and didn’t let up until late Sunday.

Our feature category for the Tasman Trophy this year was Formula Junior, featuring a round of the Tasman Tour 2016 and the Formula Junior Diamond Jubilee World Tour. The Juniors are such evocative little cars and, with full grids all weekend and some very exciting racing, were absolutely awesome to feature at the event.

We were joined at the Tasman Trophy by a large contingent of significant international cars, and many of those took part in the Formula Junior events. We would like to extend a special ‘Thank you!’ to all of our international competitors for travelling to Sydney and joining us for a weekend’s racing. It was an honour to host you, and we hope to see you back soon!

2016 Tasman Trophy

Group S was our other feature category and put on the always-spectacular relay enduro race on Sunday.

The 45-minute endurance race was a true test of driver and machine, and was a lot of fun – particularly in the pits around change-over. Well done to everyone for putting on a smooth race, for tackling the competition like it was a sprint and for holding a fun event!

2016 Tasman Trophy

The same should be said for drivers in all categories. Thank you for respecting each other and the cars of which you are custodians, for leaving racing room and providing a safe, fun and social environment in which to race. The racing was exciting and respectful all weekend and great to be a part of whether on the track or spectating.

The joys of historic racing are not limited to time in the seat of a race car. The pits and paddock are lots of fun to explore and provide a level of access that’s hard to match in motorsport. The pits and paddock had a very pleasant, social and relaxed atmosphere throughout the Tasman Trophy and that’s a credit to the good people who make up this community.

2016 Tasman Trophy

Speaking of the good people who make up this community, I will conclude with our most important thanks. A monumental amount of work goes in to preparing and running an event like the Tasman Trophy and none of it would be possible without the support of skilled, passionate and dedicated volunteers.

You allow us to hold these events, enjoy these experiences and take part in this community. THANK YOU from everyone involved for giving us these opportunities and keeping us safe, and for all that you devote to historic racing and its community.

With that, I’m sure you’ve had more than enough of words and are ready for photos! Grab a cup/pot/pint of your favourite beverage, sit back and spend a few minutes clicking through the links below to enjoy the many photos contributed by the talented photographers who cover our events.
