This time next week we’ll be kicking off practice for our Summer Historics at Wakefield Park, so let’s take a moment to warm up by reminiscing about our previous trip to Wakefield Park in September of 2014.
But first – a reminder of what next weekend’s all about!
Mostly, good times and great classic racing! It’s our first event for the year and as such we’ve decided not to run a specific theme for the weekend. We’re leaving it open to provide a wonderful opportunity to catch up with good friends, relax, socialise and get back into playing with historic race cars after the holiday break.
Joining us over the weekend are the ladies and gentlemen of the Heritage Touring Cars series, who are kicking their 2015 championship off at the event.
The Heritage Touring Cars series is a six round series featuring genuine Group C and A touring cars which did battle in Australian touring car racing between 1973 and 1992. These machines are an absolute marvel on the track and will be driven hard, and the HSRCA is thrilled to host a round of their championship once again.
Our previous historic racing adventure at Wakefield Park was in September, 2014, the to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our first meeting at the magnificent circuit.
As we said after the event, Wakefield Park did its level best to court us with its country majesty. 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.
Group J, K and L were our feature category for the weekend, and as always were an utter delight. As were the full entry of 5th category historic cars who joined us for a respectful and fun weekend of historic motorsport.
Catch up on all the historic racing action in the wrap-up, photo galleries and links below. We can’t wait to do it all again next weekend!
