• 2013 Phillip Island Classic Motor Races

    The recent Phillip Island Classic, run by the Victorian Historic Racing Register, has become one of the most significant events on the international historic racing calendar. This years event, held on March 7-10, featured some impressive fields, and a big international entry, particularly that of the big-bore Sports Car field.

    Grids included:

    Historic Groups M & O for historic single seaters and sports cars
    Historic Formula Ford & Formula Vee
    Historic Groups Sa & Sb for production sports cars
    Historic Group C & Group A Touring Cars
    Historic Groups Q & R (Formula Atlantic etc) and Formula 5000
    Group Nb & Nc Historic Touring Cars
    Historic Groups J, Ka, Kb, Lb Historic early sports cars
    Groups Sbd & Sc '60s & 70s production sports cars
    Sports Prototype, GT and Can-Am cars

    The last group for the Can-Am etc field looks especially exciting, with a big grid of cars. Several Can-Am cars from Aus, the UK, and the US are entered, including the Gary Wilson Sting GW1, complete with 9 litre big block Chevy! Also, Rusty French is entered in this field with his old John Sands Porsche 935 which he won the Australian GT championship with in 1983. I see Larry Perkins is also in this race in the old Kevin Bartlett De Tomaso Pantera.
