We’ve enjoyed a lovely summer break with family and friends and we’re now re-charged and looking forward to catching up with everyone and getting stuck in to a fresh season of historic motor sport. There are a few social events coming up over late January and February, and we’d like to extend a most cordial invitation for you to join us!
First up is the HSRCA display at Australia Day Parramatta’s CARnivale on Australia Day, Saturday the 26th of January. This is traditionally our first club display of the year and is a great opportunity to catch up after the break. For those of us displaying cars at CARnivale on behalf of the HSRCA, a visit by members would be most welcome.
The Citroen Special will be there so it is a good chance to see the car up close and chat with half a dozen other car owners as well.
Held in Parramatta Park, CARnivale is a massive celebration of all things automotive, featuring a large display of cars from many of New South Wales’ car clubs as well as food, music and other festivities.
Our display will promote the history of motorsport at the Parramatta Park venue, and share some of the wonderful vehicles and personalities that make up the club. The day is a great opportunity to socialise, meet fellow fans of historic motorsport and classic race machinery, and share our love of the sport with the community.
The following week we will hold a social lunch for Todd Hamilton and the scrutineering team on Tuesday the 29th of January.
We will celebrate the tremendous service Todd Hamilton and his team have provided to motor sport and particularly the HSRCA, at a lunch on Tuesday 29 January. The venue is the Holiday Inn at Parramatta, Marsden Room from noon till mid-afternoon.
The cost is $60 and payment should be made to the HSRCA via direct debit or other means. Please contact Wes Dayton to arrange. Enquiries can also be made to me.
Then, on Tuesday the 19th of February, with much thanks to Garry Simkin we have organised lunch with Vern Schuppan. Garry has been trying to arrange a visit for some time. Paul Newby will interview Vern and it will be an opportunity to ask questions and socialise.
The venue is the Ryde-Eastwood Leagues Club at 117 Ryedale Rd, West Ryde on Tuesday 19 February. There is plenty of parking and the venue is a short walk from West Ryde train station. Formalities begin at 11.30.
We may expand and revise our social program for this year, a subject for committee discussion in the next few weeks.
