As we prepare to wrap-up 2013, we still have one big job left to do – wrap up our All Historic Summer event at Sydney Motorsport Park!

“Except for an “interesting” damp practice, all of the races were held in the dry, which was very welcome following a very wet June meeting.” – Ed Holly

Conforming with a 2013 trend, our event started off with our many talented drivers playing tip toe in the rain and getting warmed up in some challenging conditions. They did marvelously, however, and that set the bar for the entire weekend’s racing.

“Great racing in the events I saw over the weekend. Just all around good safe and effective motor racing.” – David Medley

Our feature categories for the weekend were Q & R Sports and Racing and they were well subscribed and put on an excellent show for all involved.

As always, proceedings were just as entertaining off the track as they were on it. The pits and paddock were full of good mates having a great weekend together socialising, tinkering and hitting the track to put their historic sports and racing cars to good use, and test and improve their own talents as well.

“Now I know why I do all of this!  It was FANTASTIC!” – Noel Bryen

It’s always a joy to explore the pits and paddock, with plenty of social stops along the journey, and this weekend was no exception!

Thank you to all of our entrants for getting involved, preparing your cars so beautifully, making the pits and paddock such a pleasant place to be, and for filling the track with great historic racing all weekend!

“It was terrific to see so many interstate competitors make the journey and it was also terrific of the HSCRA to put on the extra laps they promised, with this meeting having a bit of a C of D category focus.” – Ed Holly

Most importantly, we would like to extend an immense and heartfelt ‘THANK YOU!‘ to the many volunteers who make all of this possible. You create these wonderful opportunities to get together and enjoy our cars and we are endlessly grateful for the energy, passion and expertise which you donate to the sport.

These events wouldn’t be much fun without all of our mates getting involved in them with us, so another just as heartfelt ‘THANK YOU!‘ to everyone who came along and got involved. We are brought together around our cars, but it’s friends and family that make these times special.

We love to promote the work of our many talented mates, so if you have photos, video, or stories from the weekend and would like to share them on the club website, send an email to [email protected], or drop by the club Facebook page and say hi.

We’re going to take a quick break over the holiday season to refuel and rest, and we’ll be back in 2014 for the All Historic Summer on the 22nd and 23rd of February.
