Sydney saw the introduction of a new historic motorsport event this past weekend, with the inaugural running of the Sydney Retro Speedfest held at Sydney Motorsport Park over the 3rd and 4th of May.
The event brought together an impressive collection of historic machinery, featuring plenty to enjoy no matter what your classic car preferences. Everything from classic sports cars to ‘big bangers’ from the Heritage Touring Car championship, Group C champions and a healthy collection of Formula 1 legends hit the track over the weekend, resting in the pits and paddock in between runs with generous access for spectators to explore and enjoy.
Glorious sounds of historic motorsport machinery at full-tilt formed the backdrop for the weekend’s events, and the circuit was abuzz all weekend with plenty of tight no-holds-barred racing.
A hallmark of these events, the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, and it was great to be able to chat with people as they enjoyed the event or prepared their cars for the next race.
