2023 HSRCA Summer Festival
The 2023 HSRCA Summer Festival is is bringing a full field of classic, historic and vintage race cars to Sydney Motorsport Park November 25 & 26 for a weekend of motorsport on Sydney's iconic grand prix circuit.
The race meeting will feature events for all historic categories, with Group S, Group M & O and Early Modern Regularity highlighted with feature events over the weekend.
The '50s, '60s and '70s production sports cars of Group S will put on a spectacular endurance race on Sunday morning, complete with an always-exciting driver change in pit lane. They will be joined by the iconic 1960s race and sports cars of Group M & O, which will contest the historic Dawson-Damer trophy over the weekend. These cars all feature period race histories, and are highly evocative of their era and wonderful to see at full tilt on the track.
For the 2023 Summer Festival we are also pleased to introduce Early Modern Regularity. Inspired by the Early Modern category of the Classic Sports Car Club in the UK, Early Modern Regularity is a new category for the HSRCA. It offers regularity competition to production touring and sports cars with a build date between 1990 and 2010, as well as run-on models at the discretion of the HSRCA.
The historic motorsport scene is alive and kicking today, offering value for money motorsport to competitors and edge-of-your-seat racing excitement for spectators to enjoy. There’s action at every corner, lots of overtaking and a wide variety of cars, each with their own sounds and handling characteristics. It’s raw, noisy, fast and thrilling, which is how motorsport should be, and the reason why historics are one of the fastest growing sectors in motor racing.
Its best quality, however, is its friendly, relaxed and open community. Spectators are free to explore the pits and paddock, meet the drivers and teams, and get up close to the cars. Come along and immerse yourself in the golden age of motorsport for a few hours, and perhaps make a few new friends along the way.
