Sydney Retro Speedfest returned to Sydney Motorsport Park this weekend for its sophomore outing with the HSRCA. It was a smörgåsbord of golden age of motorsport goodness, and we have a great set of photos from the event for you to enjoy.

Now in its second year, Sydney Retro Speedfest was held at Sydney Motorsport Park over Australia’s Queen’s Birthday long weekend. It brought some magic machinery to the historic Sydney racetrack, including magnificent examples from twelve historic racing categories, many rare and storied machines and even a handful of historic cars which made their Aussie historic motorsport debut over the weekend.

The cars were beautifully prepared, and it’s wonderful to see these classic machines so well cared-for and in top racing condition. It’s even better to see them full-tilt out on the track, where competitors aren’t afraid to wring every single horsepower they can out of their machines and use every inch of the circuit to put on brilliant races all weekend long.

These races, especially in the packed Formula Vee and Formula Junior, Group S and Group N fields, are as exciting to watch as they were when the cars were new, and it’s a joyful thing to see.

When not fighting for their lives out on the track, the cars recover in the pits and paddock. Here their owners fine-tune setup, perform maintenance and make sure they’re good to go for the next race. This is a great opportunity for spectators to get up close and personal with the cars and chat with owners and competitors. It’s a relaxed and social atmosphere and everyone is approachable and happy to chat life, cars and everything.

Take a few minutes to enjoy the shots, soak in the atmosphere and catch up with the on track action in this gallery, thanks to Seth Reinhardt. Head to the HSRCA’s website and Facebook page for more.
