The Winter 2016 Edition of the Oily Rag is On Its Way

Winter 2016 Oily Rag

Your next issue of The Oily Rag is with Australia Post and currently jockeying for position with a zillion Christmas cards to see what gets to your letterbox first.

In this issue there are reports from VHRR’s Winton meeting, HRCC’s return to Lakeside and the HSRCA’s Spring meeting. Plus there are words to read from Wayne Wilson on his fun and games in the UK and especially driving his Brabham at Reims.

Aaron Lewis has also kindly sent in words and pics on his Goodwood experiences and who wouldn’t be smiling sitting next to Sir Stirling in an Aston Martin DB3S. All that and reports on the VSCC 40th Anniversary meeting, review of a great book on a long forgotten WA race circuit, Maseratis racing in Australia and whatever happened to the Costin-Nathan. Almost forgot – there are four pages of classifieds.

Make sure you stand by your letter boxes to keep the cards at bay so there is plenty of room for your copy of The Oily Rag.

Working to get the next issue out in January so please send your classified ads etc to me ASAP.

Patrick Quinn,
Oily Rag Editor

Tim Schenken Guest Speaking at December 3rd Social Night

Tim Schenken Brands Hatch

The HSRCA is delighted to have vastly experienced driver, race car builder and CAMS administrator Tim Schenken along to entertain us on December 3rd.

His racing career was varied encompassing such milestones as being Australian Hillclimb champion in 1965, being a Grovewood Award winner, driving for Ferrari in sports cars, Lotus, Surtees, de Tomaso plus stints with HSRCA Patron Ron Tauranac in both Brabham and Trojans and much more.

A partnership with Howden Ganley saw them produce the TIGA range of sports and open wheelers before returning to Australia in 1984 to take up a role with CAMS as motor racing manager overseeing V8 races, F1 GPs and many other major events.

As usual, the venue is the Denistone Sports Club, 59 Chatham Road, West Ryde with the entertainment starting at 8pm. But why not arrive earlier and have a bite and a drink with fellow club members?
