johnh875 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Phillip Island Classic 2008

I thought I would start a thread as it is only just over 3 weeks until this meeting (8-9 March), and it is one of the highlights of the historic racing scene here in Australia. Best place to start is the VHRR website for the event:
http://www.vhrr.com/phillip_island.htm and http://www.vhrr.com/phillip_island2.htm

There are 550 cars entered including the ex-Mark Donohue 917-30 from the Porsche museum, which will be a sight to see, and a highlight on Sunday is a race between ~20 F5000 cars supplemented with 70s and 80s F1 cars.

I will be trying to get down there at least for the Sunday if not the Saturday as well. Is anyone else going to spectate, or even race?

Its a very,very good meeting and more people should think about sending cars although the date is a bit late to get cars back to Europe.Its the best organised with more races per hour than any other meeting,Not sure about those handicap things though

There'll be an ex Works Cologne Capri as well, should be awesome. I'm hoping we can get a few cameras down there for the Podcast and the TV show should it go ahead. I'm just hoping there's no Bike meetings that weekend or otherwise I might not be able to make it.
BTW Moto Mayhem Super Motard is at Oran Park next weekend it's a great spectacle so head out there it's going to be lots of fun. I hope!

You reckon?

It sure will be a great event though, always is and continues to grow. Should be some great machinery there. Can't wait for Roddy's Jag again!

No idea. Just been told that one will be there, the ex Jochen Mass car was running around at Goodwood a couple of years ago, it's the one in the picture on our website, but there was quite a few. Either way it was always a favourite car of mine and what with a big field of F5000s, the 917 Can Am car, Grp A and C cars and a whole fleet of International Formula Junior cars it should be one hell of a weekend.
We might have 3 cameras there if the sponsorship gods smile on us.

Apparently there will be some celebrations on Saturday afternoon to mark the 80th anniversary of the first Grand Prix, with a tour of the original road course and display in Cowes. There is nothing on the website, does anyone know about this?

Don't miss the Formula Junior Golden Jubilee race at this meeting! (The Golden Jubilee World Series is taking place in New Zealand [Pukekohe], Australia [Philip Island], Europe [Monza, Brands Hatch GP and Nurburgring], USA West Coast [Monterey], USA East Coast [Lime Rock], with the grand finale in South Africa [ Killarney].) Further information can be viewed on the Formula Junior web site, including a write up of the New Zealand races.

What's the status of the race at Calder this weekend? They're certainly promoting it as a round of the series. Actually it should be a pretty good meeting with a few people taking the opportunity to get in a bit of pre-PI practice. Shame it conflicts with both Sandown and the bikes at the Island.

For full info. go to www.formulajunior.com the cars from overseas race at several meetings but I think it is only the races mentioned in the previous post that count towards the World Series, the others i.e. Calder being Jubilee series races.

Does anyone have any info on Calder this weekend - apart form the fact that FJ is running? I cannot find a thing - are FJ running both days (thought I read somewhere that they would only run one day) and what other classes are running?
I would not mind going to have a look, but it all seems to be a well kept secret at the moment.
