As the Summer rolled into 2017 so did our favourite racing, sports and touring cars from the Golden Age of Motorsport.

Sydney Motorsport Park erupted to life with the sounds and sights of classic racing.

Like a peddle to the metal I get drawn to the Group N races but it seems, the more HSRCA events I attend, the more the open wheelers appeal to me.

I think it’s the fact that they are purpose-built race cars. Every part was designed and built to go fast. To take one out on the track is definitely on the bucket list.

Like all HSRCA events, owners, mechanics and drivers were happy to have a chat about the machines were working on or driving that day. What I found interesting were the people who work on these classics for a living. If any of you are reading this please contact me. I’d love to check out your workshop.

The greatest part of the event is seeing vintage metal in action.
