Join us for our first race meeting of the year, the 2024 Sydney Classic, to be held over the King’s Birthday long weekend, the 8th and 9th of June, with private practice available on Friday the 7th.

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.

Practice

As practice is being conducted jointly with the ARDC – a generous offer as we have lost money in recent years with reduced Friday numbers – we had to allow the public to also enter. This meant that public practice entrants may have occupied the garages that our entrants were to use over the weekend.

We intend to avoid this potential clash by reserving the garages of those who enter practice AND the weekend event, and closing them to the public entrants on Friday morning. This makes it imperative that you enter practice online ahead of time so that we know who will be using their garages on Friday.

Please enter in advance online by clicking this link. Reach out if you need help navigating the entry.

The reality is that the number of public entrants as of today is very low, so your chances of having a clash with a public entrant is similarly low. This should be overwhelmingly an HSRCA practice session.

Finally, on the note of track time – we intend to offer 4 sessions of practice over the Friday.

Those competitors who do not enter Friday Practice should leave bump-in until after 3:00pm on Friday to ensure that they can access their garages. If you get there much earlier you should be doing practice!

No access will be available until 6:00am Friday morning, but you may leave trailers in Parking 5, which is to the right of the entry gate up the hill.

Bump In

No access will be available until 6:00am Friday morning, but you may leave trailers in Parking 5, which is to the right of the entry gate up the hill.

We are sharing practice with some open to the public groups in separate grids, so access to your weekend garage cannot be guaranteed on Friday. Please arrive early if you want to grab your allotted garage.

Fuel

RaceFuels have filled the tanks for us ahead of our Sydney Classic meeting. They have permanent bowsers located uphill from race control, which will be operating throughout the weekend.
 
Three fuels will be available:
  • E-85 Race Blend – $2.75 per litre
  • Elf Race 102 – $5.50 per litre
  • 98RON – $2.75 per litre
The bowsers at SMSP have also been updated with Paywave, so competitors can ‘tap and go’ when they get their fuel. To buy your fuel:
  • Press 1 on the keypad to begin
  • Select your required pump
  • Tap or insert credit card
  • Enter your required amount in dollars. Enter full dollar amounts, no decimal places
  • Go to the pump and fill your car or jerry can
If any entrants require Elf Core 50 at the event, this will need to be ordered through fuelorder@racefuels.com.au or by calling the office (03) 9706 5233.
 
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.

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.

For our 2024 meeting we are proud to celebrate the work of Bob Britton, creator of Rennmax cars and an icon of our community. There will be a feature race for Rennmax cars on Sunday, and we are working to bring as many of them out to run as we can.

We are also honoured to be joined by HQ Racing NSW for the first time at an HSRCA meeting. Coming out of Tasmania in 1989, HQ Racing is a category for Holden HQ four door sedans running 3.3-litre six cylinder engines. The HQ Holdens will be a great fit for our historic race meeting and we look forward to seeing them in action on track, as well as enjoying the weekend together in the paddock.

The Heritage Touring Cars series will contest the penultimate round of their 2024 championship at the Sydney Classic. The series has been a most welcome addition to the meeting in recent years, and we look forward to seeing the legends of Bathurst back in action in June.

We have once again worked to keep entry fees down in an effort to support our community’s ability to enjoy historic motor racing. However, for 2024 we will be unable to absorb the 3% credit card surcharge on payments as we have done in the past. We recommend paying by direct debit if you wish to avoid this additional fee.

As always, garages, carports and marquees will be allocated in order of receipt of entries, so first in will be best accommodated. Please place your entries promptly to ensure your desired lodgings.

We appreciate your strong entries in recent years, and hope to see the same for the 2024 Sydney Classic as we celebrate Bob Britton’s contribution to our sport, welcome HQ Racing and enjoy the storied and varied characters and cars that make our meetings so special. 

We look forward to seeing everyone at Sydney Motorsport Park, for an excellent return to racing at the 2024  Sydney Classic, June 7 – 9.
