Love cars? Next weekend, the long weekend
F1 cars on the island, big banger sportys McLarens .... F5000s, F2, proper race cars with the engine up front, theres more ..
Tin tops:
Group A Sierra, TWR Jag, Godzilla in the Heritage series & Group C Toranas, Falcons, Jim Richards in the JPS BMW 635 Group C & the GrA JPS 635 & M3
Historic Group Na, b, c & Paul Stubber is hauling the Camaro over from WA, its worth the trip to the Island to see this thing sideways through the Southern Loop.

This year’s Phillip Island Classic Festival of Motorsport will also witness the largest ever assembly of Holden Dealer Team cars at one time. Not sure if Stubber is bringing his 2x A9X HDT cars.

Entries from all over Aus, cos its the #1 hysterics meet: https://vhrr.com/wp/phillip-island/

See you there Friday.

I've never been to this and am keen to get along this year but I have a feeling I'm booked up next weekend. :(
It looks like a ripper meet!

There's probably some pics of this meeting in previous years in the motorsport photos thread, if there aren't any dead links. If there isn't, there's a few from other historic meetings.

Brings back memories of Bathurst the year Dick destroyed this thing .... in the pits next to the Bob Morris car when Dicks co driver KB appeared, the Morris car came in, KB jumped in & out he went, Dick appeared, KB gave a thumbs up first time past the pits ... the rest is history, overnight the Morris car became GreensTuf ...

See Paul Stubber is running the HDT A9X #76, fastest Gr C in 1st practice, Sierras galore in Gr A:

I never saw the Group A cars live when they were in the ATCC. But I tell you what? They were good viewing approaching t1! You watched these cars on tv, and the camera makes it look almost pedestrian. But watching live, you see that it's not easy to punt these things around PI. And I was watching amateurs.

It was the ANDREW HARRIS falcon they turned into Greens-Tuf.
