Saturday Morning Entry 

If you are not arriving at the circuit until Saturday morning:

  • Entry passes should be available at the gate. Enter the circuit and set up your car at your allocated space
  • Complete your competitor sign-on for the event with the Race Secretary 

Garages and Carports

Competitors, if you requested a garage or carport this may be of interest to you.

Entries for the event are very strong! About two weeks before entries closed on the 15th of November, most of the garages were taken. In the week leading up to entries closing, all of the garages and most of the carports were taken.

There are numerous competitor requests to share with or next to others, as well as many other requests including nominating specific garages or carports, and requests to share with someone who has not entered.

When entries are so strong, there is quite limited flexibility to move competitors around in order to meet these requests. However, the Race Committee has met as many of these requests as possible.

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 join us at the 2020 HSRCA Summer Festival at Sydney Motorsport Park

We’re pleased to announce that entry to the 2020 HSRCA Summer Festival, to be held over the weekend of November 27 to 29 at Sydney Motorsport Park, is now open.

As usual, please enter via the Motorsport Australia Members’ Portal:

https://motorsport.org.au/

All drivers are welcome to the Summer Festival, which 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. As well as these, Summer staples like the Dawson-Damer trophy race, Group S Enduro Relay and perpetual trophies will return, as will the BMC Challenge, which is becoming an enjoyable regular at our meetings.

Private practice will be offered on Friday the 27th of November and will be hosted by the circuit.

Having spent this year’s winter break in hibernation, the Summer Festival will be the first time we’ve run at the iconic Sydney circuit since our 2019 summer meeting. We’re looking forward to having a little more space to work with, and giving the the big cars some room to stretch their legs.

The Summer Festival will comply with all NSW Government COVID-19 regulations, as well as Sydney Motorsport Park’s COVID-19 procedures. We will, as always, keep a close eye on the situation and any and all rules, regulations and restrictions to come out of it. To ensure a safe and enjoyable meeting for all, we will make any necessary adjustments in the lead-up to the event.

We appreciate that the Summer Festival will follow hot on the heels of this weekend’s Spring Festival, giving us a somewhat compressed schedule for entries. That said, we hope that you will enjoy the action-packed conclusion to the 2020 historic motor sport season!

As always, your support of the club, its meetings and the community is greatly appreciated.

Yours in motor sport,
The HSRCA Race Committee.
