Entries for this event are strong. All garages and carports were taken fairly promptly and allocated on a ‘first in, first served basis’. Marquee spaces have been provided by the club as well.

Every possible effort is made to allocate spaces based on entrant requests, car categories and the like. With such strong entries, however, not every request can be met.

  3. Choose pump 1, 2, 3 or 4 corresponding to your desired fuel
  4. Fill up your car or jerry can

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 web@hsrca.com that you would prefer a garage or carport and you will be added to the wait list.

For specific groups, such as MG Racing, the marquees will be erected on the skid pan, but for individual entries, these will be erected in the main pit area and will still be close to the garages.

We look forward to catching up with everyone and continuing 2022’s historic motor sport season with an entertaining and well-supported Queen’s Birthday meeting at Sydney Motorsport Park.
