HSRCA’s Sydney Speedfest on again tomorrow

The Historic Sports and Racing Car Association premier event for 2015 is being held over the Queen’s Birthday Weekend.

Formed in 1981 the role of the Historic Sports and Racing Car Association of New South Wales (HSRCA) was then and still is to promote Historic Motor Sport in New South Wales and throughout Australia.

From its inception, the HSRCA has promoted hundreds of Historic race meetings including the highly successful Tasman Revival where like the original 1960’s Tasman Series, drivers brought their race cars from the US, UK, Europe, NZ and Japan.

This coming weekend, the Queen’s Birthday Weekend the HSRCA in conjunction with the Australian Racing Drivers’ Club will be holding the Sydney Retro Speedfest at the Sydney Motorsport Park.

Speedfest is the premier event on the HSRCA’s 2015 competition calendar and has attracted over 240 entries from all Australian mainland states and territories, except for WA and the Northern Territory.

With the expectation of such cars as two Porsche 962s, Ferrari Grand Prix cars and our own Heritage Touring Cars, Speedfest will be sure to draw enthusiasts from all along the Eastern Seaboard.

The Heritage Touring Cars will be of particular interest as these include such greats as the 1992 Bathurst 1000 winning Nissan GTR and the ex-Dick Johnson Shell Ford Sierra from 1989 along with many other cars that generated great excitement at such circuits as Mount Panorama, Bathurst during the 1980s and ‘90s.

Other attractions will be the full range of openwheelers including a chance to see close fought duels between Formula 1 cars and Formula 5000. Other categories of Historic cars will include the sedans from the 1960s and sports cars of the same period.

In addition, Speedfest will feature special displays to coincide with the 50th anniversaries of Formula Vees in Australia and also the renowned Shelby 350. There are also displays of historic Formula 1 cars as well as of cars once driven by Leo Geoghegan and Frank Matich, two Australian greats of Motor Sport that we have sadly recently lost.

The 2015 Sydney Retro Speedfest promises to be an exciting couple of days for Historic Motor Sport enthusiasts.

Sydney Motorsport Park is located 39 kilometres from the Sydney CBD on Ferrers Road, Eastern Creek NSW and further details of the meeting can be obtained from www.HSRCA.com
