Hehehe Mike.... Phillip Island is in Victoria, not South Australia.



Nothing much on the organiser's (VHRR - Victorian Historic Racing Register) website as yet, other than entries have opened.

Anyone looking to enter, look at Supp. Regs, wanting garages, camping site info, fuel and timer info all linked from this page following

To quote a Mafia Boss in an iconic automotive movie - "pretty car".

Enjoy your time downunder...

I have always admired the B8...what was the gestation period between the two and why the designation change?

Time to give this thread a bit of a bump, although no entry lists up yet.... should be up in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime a bit of a teaser of whats on show from the VHRR. Andy (Newall) gets a mention about his B6. Looking forward to seeing that.

The Phillip Island Classic ‘Festival of Motorsport’ will once again have upwards of 500 entries featuring cars from every state in Australia plus entries from New Zealand, UK and America for exciting racing over three days 6 – 8 March.

With the strong support of leading automotive parts supplier Burson Auto Parts as naming rights sponsor, long term major sponsors Cooldrive, Penrite and Shannons plus a host of other national and international brands, the Phillip Island Classic enters its 31st year building success upon success.
Internationally recognised, the event has been in the top six in the world on no less than four occasions and is attracting worldwide interest and larger attendance crowds’ year on year.

Of special interest this year will be the UK Chevron B6 Sports Car of Andy Newall, USA Paddins Dowling’s 1939 Maserati 4CL Grand Prix car and the Porsche 356 from USA based Earnest Nagamatsu along with three cars from New Zealand including the JPS BMW 635 which will be driven by another Australian legend, Jim Richards and the famous BMW M3 to be driven by Greg Murphy.

Patron for the 2020 event has been announced as the celebrated Australian motorsport legend Larry Perkins, inaugural European Formula 3 Champion, Touring Car Champion and multiple Bathurst 1000 winner with Peter Brock in 1982 to1984 in the famous Holden Commodore. Larry’s son Jack Perkins will race the fully restored Holden Commodore raced in the 2003 Bathurst event by his father.

The event will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Frank Coad’s win in the Armstrong 500, later to become the Bathurst 1000 and the event will acknowledge the 40th anniversary of Alan Jones World Championship win. Peter Brock will also be remembered, as 2020 represents the 40th anniversary of his first Bathurst win. Super Sprints for 5 litre Touring Cars will also be featured over the race days.
Once again there will be more than 1,000 cars on display with the VHRR receiving overwhelming support from Australian Car Clubs of every marque including the Marcos Car Club, 403 Peugeot and Commodore Car Club.
The VHRR Phillip Island Classic ‘Festival of Motorsport supports a charity each year with special rides around the track and this year all funds raised will go to support ‘The Male Bag Foundation’ headed up by AFL Legend David Parkin.

Is it just me or has this event lost a bit of its OOMPH in recent years? We used to have heaps of nice cars coming from around the world (remember the International Sports Car Challenge) but now we are excited by 3 cars? I know we have a lot of great race cars in Australia but this event seems to be relying more on Australia's preoccupation with Touring car racing than it did in the past. maybe this gets people through the gates but is this the way the event should be going?

Certainly the overseas contingent seems to wax and wane annually, but to be fair many o/s cars are racing without any pre publicity. Of course certain years the entry is spectacular due to a European or overseas manufacturer special anniversary involvement (ie Alfa, who seemed to bring half their museum including WDC winners to their 100th anniversary year.... they also brought a number of factory drivers and engineers that year) Porsche have also supported some of their anniversaries, F5000 is always well supported from O/S as are big sports cars.

The entry is still promised at well over 500 cars (I have heard 540 mentioned) which is no less than recent years.

Of course these anniversaries also feature Touring Cars from time to time, ( I think last year celebrated the 60th anniversary of the first Australian Touring Car Championship) so that would see some focus there. Also last year was a world anniversary for Formula Ford also featured.

It is still a superb meeting on a great track, and there are always a superb variety of local and overseas cars, publicised or not.

I know it will still be a great event with some great racing by some great cars but when I look at what is happening at some overseas Historic events one wonders if PI could just be a bit better.

You’ve got to remember Australia is a very small country in Historic racing terms, there just aren’t enough open wheelers and sports racing cars (despite the number of unused cars in sheds) to have the big fields we see overseas. Secondly touring car racing has always been the mainstay of spectator interest here, and the economics of running this event simply mean you need large grids and lots of punters.

Just realised that this year is the 60th Anniversary of the ATCC, with the first ever ATCC held at Gnoo Blass in rural NSW back on February 1st 1960.... it was a title decided on a one race format in those days. (It did not become a multi event championship series until 1969.)

Phillip Island Classic

Just in case anyone is interested...but probably not....
I have just finished restoring this Group A BMW 635 CSi.
It is the Charlie O'Brien Bumpa T Bumpa 1985 Bathurst 1000 car that he bought from Frank Sytner in 1985. It was the C.C Motorsport/ BMW UK then Sytner car.
It is in Bathurst 1986 colour scheme and specs of 1986.
Charlie O'Brien is driving it at Phillip Island.
