Historic race cars touch down in Sydney


Formula 1 and Indy Cars from the 1960s and ’70s will be at Sydney’s Eastern Creek Raceway from 23-25 November for this year’s Tasman Revival.

Cars built by Ferrari, McLaren, Spirit Honda, Brabham, Surtees, Lola and Lotus will take part in the three-day event, which will also feature a full grid of Formula 5000 machinery.

Presented by the Historic Sports & Racing Car Association of New South Wales, other categories include production sports cars such as Austin-Healeys and Porsches, touring cars including Mustangs and Falcon GTs, plus Formula Vee and Formula Ford single-seaters.

Frank Matich, two-time winner of the Australian Grand Prix, builder of some of Australia’s most successful race cars and patron of the Tasman Revival, will appear at the event on Sunday.

Spokesman Stephen Knox said: “Spectators get incredible access to the cars and drivers with the Memorabilia Marquee displaying many significant and spectacular cars. Full access is available throughout the paddock areas with no special passes needed.”

Always a good event, great variety, and as the man said, easy access to all, Anyone disillusioned with the Goodwood Revival should plan a trip down under next November. I will post a few more photos from last year over on the forum.
