Please note that Elf LMS has been discontinued from France and is now out of stock in Australia. Elf Core 50 is the direct replacement for LMS.


Update: 30/11/22 – Bump-in will no longer be available into the garages on Thursday night except for transporters already booked.

The skid-pan will be available for those providing their own accommodation, and any trailers may be left on the skid-pan overnight. Early access to the circuit will be available on Friday.

The ARDC is conducting a night event on Thursday which will occupy the garages – we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience if this conflicts with earlier advice.

Beware that marquees will be being erected on Thursday evening, initially on the skid-pan and then behind the garages.

The schedule for Friday Practice shows a drivers’ briefing at 7:45am, but there will be alternate arrangements if you cannot make the briefing. Practice will commence from 8.30 am and the programme has been sent today to all entrants paid to date. Entry for practice should be possible on Friday, it is being conducted for us by the ARDC.

Paddock Layout and Use

A paddock map is at the above link. Please adhere to this map, particularly in taking up a position on the skid pan. Also, please assist by parking your tender vehicle and trailer in the designated parking areas (not the paddock.)

HSRCA volunteers will be on hand on Thursday evening to assist with paddock management and directions.

Race Meeting Sign On and Scrutineering

Entry passes and HSRCA sign-on will be available in the Hinxman Room from 10:00 Friday morning (practice day). Please bring the following:

  • Proof of membership of an MSA affiliated car club
  • Your completed “Self Statement of Vehicle Compliance” form
  • Your vehicle logbook, if applicable

We have allocated two entry passes to each competitor. Your HSRCA member’s card can act as an additional pass, plus one guest. Extra passes are available upon request. Please only take what you need.

This will also include tender vehicle passes. Please insert your race car number on the tender pass.

Friday Practice

Private practice will be held on Friday the 2nd and hosted by the ARDC. It is now able to be entered online. Please visit the link to do so.

Discounts are available for both ARDC and HSRCA members. ARDC members can enter their ARDC member ID into the discount code section before purchase. The HSRCA code will be emailed to members, or you can email us at web@hsrca.com and we will provide it.

Sign on and payment can also be at the track on the day. The cost is $160 for ARDC and HSRCA members, $190 for non-members.

Friday practice typically commences at 9.00am. For those present on Friday, admin checking will be open from 11am.

  • Complete your competitor sign-on for the event with the race secretary

Drivers’ briefing will be at 8:15am in the Hinxman Room.

Garages and Carports

Due to the strong entries, and garage overflow, marquees have been arranged, at considerable expense to the Club, and some competitors will be allocated a marquee.

You Are Most Cordially Invited to the 2022 HSRCA Summer Festival at Sydney Motorsport Park

Join us for our final race meeting of the year, to be held at Sydney Motor Sport Park over the 3rd and 4th of December, with private practice on Friday the 2nd.

Enter via the Motorsport Australia members’ portal as usual:


The meeting will offer races for all of our usual fifth category vehicles as well as speed events for vehicles manufactured up to the 1990s and invited cars deemed compatible with those groups.

In addition, we hope to have groups for Formula 5000 and Sports Sedans, and look forward to the traditional Dawson Damer trophy race for M & O and the always entertaining Group S enduro race.

Private practice will be offered on Friday the 2nd of December, and will once again be run by the ARDC.

As you may well know, there are a limited number of garages and carports available at SMSP and they are always in high demand. In order to provide everyone with cover that requests it, we are providing additional marquee spots (with power).

When you enter via the members’ portal it will tell you how many garage and carport spots are remaining. If there are no garage or carport spots available when you enter, then please request (and pay for) a marquee spot and advise the race secretary (Noel Bryen) via the notes section in the portal or by sending an email to noelbryen@gmail.com that you would prefer a garage or carport and you will be added to the wait list.

We look forward to catching up with everyone and going racing after this unexpected mid-year break, to wrap up 2022’s historic motor sport season with an entertaining and well-supported summer meeting at Sydney Motorsport Park.
