On November 9-11, the Victorian Historic Racing Register presents 400 racing, sports and touring cars from yesteryear in an action packed three-day carnival of motor sport.

It’s also celebration time for the VHRR as it comes of age after promoting Historic racing for the past 21 years. And this leading club has some special surprises in store. Feature race on the program is a 15-lap event for the very popular Groups C and A touring cars (generally referred to as ‘the Bathurst cars’.) A bumper field has been assembled, and the race will also involve a compulsory pit stop to add extra spice to the event. It’s a new, exciting innovation.

Also making the ground shake will be the thundering Formula 5000s. These are the 5-litre open wheelers that ran as Australia’s top national formula during the 1970s and featured in those epic battles known as the Tasman Series.

Almost 40 races and regularity runs will be conducted over the weekend of November 9-11, catering for a wide cross-section of Historic racing, sports and touring cars from the 1920s to the ‘nineties.
