PRESS RELEASE

VHRR Phillip Island Event acknowledges Bruce Williams and Auto Action’s 50th Anniversary

The VHRR Phillip Island Classic historic racing event coming up on 5 – 7 March provides a wonderful opportunity for the Club to acknowledge and congratulate Auto Action on its contribution to motor sport in Australia over the last 50 years.

Under the direction of Bruce Williams the publication has provided wonderful support for this major historic racing event at Phillip Island over many years and the VHRR organising committee looks forward to publications continuing success well into the future.

Under the current State Government’s COVID restrictions this year’s Phillip Island Classic will be a very different event with no spectators, trade exhibits, hospitality, cars on display etc. yet the meeting has attracted more than 350 entries from local and inter-state.

Among the many entrants are some of Australia’s top drivers and amongst these are John Bowe racing the Joe Calleja owned Shelby Allard in its original racing colours, Cooldrive Team lead driver Tim Slade racing a 5 litre car in the Super Sprint and joint Bathurst winner Jonathon Webb driving a factory built Ferrari 355 Sports Car in the 5 litre invitation category.

“In the difficult circumstances we currently face, the ongoing support of our long term sponsors Bursons, Cooldrive, Shannons and Penrite plus a host of minor sponsors has shown us all that the event has a strong future,” said VHRR President.

“As we look forward to 2022 we will once again welcome spectators, displays and hospitality plus all the attractions we have had in the past. With strong interest already emanating from international competitors in the United Kingdom where Andy Newall is active and also interest from Europe and the USA, we can look forward to seeing some exciting cars at Phillip Island as the event is now well established on the international calendar,” said Ian Tate.
