Lots of races and regularity runs will be conducted over the weekend catering for a wide cross-section of Historic racing, sports and touring cars from the 1920s to the nineties. Adding to the spectacle will be displays of one-make club cars involving more than 300 desirable vehicles. Their proud owners will have them on show at the concourse alongside the main grandstand and at Red Hill on the Dandenong Road end of the circuit for the public to enjoy.

Trade stands, food outlets and off-track displays are added bonuses, and unlike modern day motor sport, mixing with the cars and drivers makes Historic racing a truly memorable experience. Enquiries 0438 438 093.
