Let’s hop into a few historic racing cars for a new perspective on September’s All Historic Spring event at Wakefield Park.
These on-board videos get you in the hot seat of a 1969 Brabham BT28 for a few laps of a Group M and O race, as well as a 1984 Tiga SC84 for a little Q & R action. It was more than a little nippy and slippery that weekend, so well done to everyone for putting on some quick and clean racing in tricky conditions!
Thanks to Jeff and Joel brown for letting me film their adventures!

Good times were had with great friends. Beautiful historic racing machinery danced, and sometimes pirouetted, with brave and talented drivers in the rain. Lap records were broken. Here are the results for Sunday’s feature races at the 2010 Lotus Sydney Tasman Revival.
