Event preview: Historic Sandown – Start your engines

Looking for a weekend with a difference? A weekend you’ll long remember? Then how about this year’s Historic Sandown meeting for a feast of top motor racing action. Or why not come along on all three days from November 8-10, 2013.id2_4665
The very best sports, racing and touring cars from yesteryear will be seen in action over the two days of competition – (three days if you count in Friday practice). Forty events, 400 Historic race cars and many of Australia’s greatest motor racing personalities will be taking part.
There will be plenty of off-track entertainment as well including static displays, a spectacular Merlin aircraft engine that will burst into life at various times throughout the weekend and a collection of championship winning Cheetah racing cars built not far from the Sandown circuit. And you’ll be made especially welcome if you and your friends arrive in your vintage, classic or collectible car – (or even on your old motorcycle). It all adds to the atmosphere!
A special tribute will be paid to a very famous Australian, the late Tony Gaze who passed away on July 30. Squadron Leader Gaze was a Spitfire ace with the RAF in World War 2, was responsible for the establishment of the Goodwood motor racing circuit in England and was Australia’s first Formula One Grand Prix driver.
The November 8-10 Historic Sandown has something for everyone and is promoted by the Victorian Historic Racing Register. For further details as they come to hand visit the VHRR website http://www.vhrr.com or phone 0402 224 133.
See you at Sandown …. November 8-10, 2013.
