The best website for info is on the VHRR (Victorian Historic Racing Register) website. There will be a full list of events, classes, timetables, drivers entered plus the PR and media info.

Here is the link for the event, although sadly only last years info is present, with a promise of updates to come. It gives an idea of the info on there though (2018 meeting.) Plenty of other links on the page to general info of the VHRR, contact info by class/category, galleries of all VHRR events (several hundred images of this years March Historic / classic meeting. )

It is a fabulous meeting. Very sociable. I will be there .... my highlight of the motor sport year in preference to the closely following Grand Prix.

Likewise Iain. I was going to say I will bring the kwassants!
I am sure I can organise you an invite to the HTCAV (Historic Touring Cars Assoc. of Victoria) barbecue for beer and vittles.
I suspect other tenthers such as David Towe will be there with the Group A brigade. I did meet up with HRSTR5 (James) in his Triumph a few years ago.

There are a few Formula Junior on board laps of Phillip Island on youtube.... not races just laps I think. Plenty of F5000 racing on the tube from there, and Historic Tourers.

(Presume you are coming with FJ's Iain?)

A copy of the 2018 programme if anyone is interested. Over 100 pages and plenty of pics.

Just thought I would give this thread a bit of a bump seeing as it is almost upon us.

I am checking the VHRR website daily for news of the schedule and competitor list. I am told 'coupla days mate'! As soon as it is up I will post links.

One thing is the Cooper Maserati that Iain will be at the event with seems to be one of the star attractions. In the press release:
Quote:
PRESS RELEASE

Phillip Island Classic Historic Racing in March will feature International and Locally owned World Renowned Cars

The 2019 Phillip Island Classic ‘Festival of Motor Sport’ on 8 – 10 March will feature some of UK’s top historic race cars including the 1964 ex-Salvadori Cooper-Maserati T61P in which Roy Salvadori chased Bruce McLaren to the checkered flag at Silverstone on May 1964.
The rest of the press release can be read here: https://vhrr.com/wp/phillip-island/
Not a new press release, but the only one and posted as an excuse to bump the thread.

No doubt the Bruce McLaren link helped!

Is it just me or has this meeting lost a bit of it's oomph. The years of having a multitude of interesting cars from overseas seem to be in the past and there seems to be a bit more emphasis on the Touring Car side of things. Remember the International sports car event from a few years ago and some great open wheeler fields. Perhaps the organisers think touring cars will get more people through the gate but the race weekend should not lose what has made it great over the years.

For my mind, every historic event in Australia has its 'niche'

PI Classic was all about the sportscars, the ones that couldn't really stretch their legs anywhere else in the country. That, combined with the international cars coming over was my drawcard to the event.
Sandown was F5000; Winton Festival of Speed was Group N; Austin 7 Historics had J, K and L all squared away etc...

For Iains benefit here is a longe range forecast for PI next weekend.

Just checked the VHRR website and literally they have just posted the schedule and entry list. (I checked earlier today and it was not there)
