The Formula 5000 era of the 1970s will be put up against the Formula 1 era of the 1980s this weekend as the cars in the Group Q & R Racing class go trackside at the Phillip Island Classic.
Like many categories this weekend, Victoria has allowed border crossings from NSW where Tom Tweedie (Chevron B24/28) will go head-to-head with Guido Belgirono-Nettis (Ferrari 156 GP). We’re tipping they will have a lot of challengers hot on their heels though. There’s the super quick David Hardman (Hardman JH-1), Tim Macrow making an appearance in a Ralt RT4, and the Formula A cars headed up by Rohan Carrig (Hocking).
See them on track: Friday for qualifying at 12:10pm and the first race at 4:00pm, Saturday at 11:30am and 4:05pm, and Sunday at 11:05am and 3:50pm.
