The Tasman Revival is on for the second time from 28-30 November 2008 at Eastern Creek International Raceway.
Fittingly, Repco has announced major sponsorship for the event, which makes sense as their engines won the Formula One World Driver’s Championship in 1966 and 1967 – the same era as the running of the Tasman Series in Australia and New Zealand.
Some 50+ racing cars are on their way from overseas (yes, hopefully they will arrive before the event this year! This includes the rare appearance of the Chris Amon Ferrari that won the 1968 Formula One championship.
Kevin Bartlett has been named the Event Patron – taking over the relm from Frank Gardenr. This is also a fitting combination as Kevin was Frank’s partner in the Mildren Racing Team during the Tasman Series.
More then 30 Formula 5000’s are anticipated to hit the track providing an amazing rolling start formation down the long Eastern Creek track. For more information, please visit http://www.tasmanrevival.com
