The Tasman Revival always offers a brilliant atmosphere and a it’s joy to cruise the pits and paddock, chat with the drivers, peer at the beautiful historic machinery and take to the stands to soak up the historic racing.

HISTORIC RACING CARS HIT THE TRACK IN SYDNEY FOR 2012 TASMAN REVIVAL

Start your engines for Australia’s premier historic racing car event, the 2012 TASMAN REVIVAL, on in Sydney from 23– 25 November 2012, at Eastern Creek Raceway.

The 2012 Tasman Revival is an unrivaled opportunity for racing car enthusiasts to experience the excitement of 1960s “formula cars” and 1970s Formula 5000 cars in full flight with over 30 racing events over three days.

Spectators can soak up the sights, sounds and tremendous atmosphere of historic motorsport over three days of almost continuous racing, with close trackside access to races, cars and drivers.  Presented by the Historic Sports & Racing Car Association of NSW, the 2012 Tasman Revival will bring together ex-Formula 1 and Indy cars including Ferrari, McLaren, Spirit Honda, Brabham, Surtees, Lola and Lotus.

A grid of fearsome Formula 5000s will feature at the event when over 12,000 hp rattles the windows and shakes the ground of Eastern Creek.

Other categories will be there too – production sports cars such as Austin Healeys and Porsches, touring cars including Mustangs and Falcon GTs and single seaters from Formula Vee through Juniors and Formula Ford to F1.

Many of Australia’s best known drivers will be at the track with opportunities for autographs. Patron of the Tasman Revival FRANK MATICH AM, two-time winner of the Australian Grand Prix and builder of some of Australia’s most iconic and successful racing cars will be attending on Sunday.

Spokesperson for the Tasman Revival, Mr. Stephen Knox, said:

“The Tasman Revival is a not-to-be-missed event for racing car enthusiasts. It’s a rare chance to see some of the fastest cars from the 1960s and ‘70s compete on track with almost continuous racing over three exciting days.

“Spectators get incredible access to the cars and drivers with the Memorabilia Marquee displaying many significant and spectacular cars. Full access is available to garages and marquees throughout the paddock areas and no special passes are needed.

“Historic racing is the biggest and fastest growing branch of motorsport in Australia and throughout the Western world. We are expecting about 450 entries including more than 50 international competitors.

“It’s a great day for the entire family and something you will never forget.
