Tasman Revival Meeting 2008

Submitted by on November 14, 2008

Eastern Creek 28 – 29 – 30 November is the place to be to see an amazing array of cars from around the world. With an expected entry of more than 400 racing cars, sedans and sports cars, the 2008 Tasman Revival Meeting is going to be huge!

The Tasman Revival meeting is a nostalgic re-enactment of what transpired some 40 years ago.  In the swinging sixties, Australia and New Zealand had their own mini Formula One type series of races for single seat racing cars called the Tasman Series.  Almost all the Formula One Teams and drivers came “downunder” to enjoy some fun in the sun during the northern hemisphere’s winter.

The cars were the Formula One cars of the era and the engines were limited to a maximum of 2.5 litres.  For the years to 1965, this was 66% larger than the maximum capacity of Formula One cars.

Along with 20 Formula 5000 cars from New Zealand and the USA, there are some other very significant cars coming from elsewhere as well.From the United Kingdom, come 2 wonderful cars from the 1968 Tasman Championship, the Chris Amon driven Ferrari Dino V6 and the Pedro Rodriguez BRM P126 V12. The Ferrari in Amon’s hands came second in the Tasman Championship that year behind Jim Clark and will undoubtedly be one of the stars of the meeting
