Welcome home, and thanks for a stunning weekend of racing at Wakefield Park for our 20th Anniversary Spring Historics!
We’re back after a full weekend of historic racing celebrating the 20th anniversary of our first meeting at the magnificent Wakefield Park. And that means it’s time to take a look back at all of the action!
Goulburn sure pulled out all the stops this weekend. The surrounding hills were green and rolling, yellow canola fields sat snugly at their feet and pristine blue skies soared above, occasionally spotting themselves with puffy white clouds to add a little whimsy to the backdrop. Add to that the finest weather we can imagine this occasionally-cantankerous part of the world mustering, and we had all the makings for a perfect weekend.
Oh, and we can’t forget the few hundred beautifully-prepared historic sports and racing cars, and the fine group of men and women who love them to share it all with!
Groups J, K and L were majestic as the feature category for the event, and were kept busy all weekend contesting events for both race and regularity groups, along with plenty of fun and games in the pits and paddock.
It’s always a joy to see these cars out at speed and in force and their area in the paddock is a very friendly, relaxed and fun place to enjoy a few moments.
Freedom to explore the pits and paddock, chat with fellow historic motorsport aficionados and enjoy the cars and buzz is one of the great aspects of historic motorsport. Our events are friendly and relaxed, because they’re mostly about good friends getting together to catch up and enjoy life around a shared common interest.
This weekend was no exception and we implore anyone who comes along to one of our events to take advantage of that freedom, enjoy the cars and make a few new friends!
Similarly-majestic were the owners, drivers and crews from the full entry of 5th category historic cars who joined us for the weekend’s historic motorsport. We enjoyed full fields of beautifully-prepared historic racing and sports cars from each group and it’s a joy to have such great support from the community.
The racing throughout the weekend was exciting, well-driven and great to watch. We give a great deal of credit for the smooth running of the weekend to the respectful and clean racing demonstrated by everyone involved. Well done, and thank you!
When it comes to the smooth running of our events, however, it is our gracious and selfless volunteers who deserve the most thanks. As always we wish to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supports the Club and our community through their tireless efforts and expertise – you provide us with these unforgettable opportunities to enjoy our cars and our friends. THANK YOU!
