Photo Gallery: A Historic Summer with the HSRCA
The Historic Sports and Racing Car Association of NSW spent the past weekend at Eastern Creek International Raceway with a glorious collection of historic sports and racing cars. Being quite the fans of historic racing cars ourselves, we took a cruise to the creek to check it out.
And what a grand gathering of amazing automobiles and historic racing we found! An ’85 Ferrari 156/85 Formula One, an ’82 Spirit Honda F2, Lolas, Chevrons, Formula 3s, Formula 5000s, various Brabham BTs, a sexy Italian Osella PA5 from 1977 and enough 911s to give Rennsport a run. And that’s before we stopped to admire the miles of magic muscle and gorgeous classic sports cars.
The cars are all wonderfully looked after and absolutely stunning, despite the fact that they’re regularly taken to the track and given the beans in tight and classy historic racing that has the track roaring all weekend.
It’s a brilliant atmosphere – all about good mates heading to the track to enjoy a weekend with their friends spent tinkering with and racing cars from the golden era of motoring. Everyone’s very friendly and up for a chat and wandering the pits and paddock is a blast.
