Photo Gallery: International Sports Cars at Australian Grand Prix

International Sports Cars

The Australian Grand Prix is a smörgåsbord of everything motorsport and car culture, featuring something with wheels and a perpetually-exploding form of propulsion to entertain just about anyone.

This year the event featured plenty to keep fans of historic motorsport entertained, with the annual historic demonstration fully stocked and a new addition in the form of the Total Oil International Sports Cars race.

The Total Oil International Sports Cars event featured monstrous historic machines from the golden era of sports car racing, such as an 8.8 litre March 717, Porsche’s 935, 936 and 956, and an 8800cc McLaren M8F.

The soggy Saturday that overwhelmed Albert Park and saw the Formula One qualifying delayed meant that race one for the International Sports Cars was cancelled, but the cars took to the track on Sunday and put on a stunning show for spectators.

19-year-old Michael Lyons took victory in the race in the aforementioned March, followed by Alex Davison in a 936 and Russell Kempnich in a 956C. Aussie racing legend Rusty French was fifth in his Porsche 935.
