Important message from VHRR Committee
Historic Sandown 2020
As you may be aware, the VHRR Committee has for sometime been in pre planning for Historic Sandown 2020 and incorporating both the Government’s Covid-19 restrictions and Motorsport Australia’s Return To Race strategy into the deliberations.
Our Event Secretary and Clerk of Course have been developing Supplementary Regulations consistent with Government restrictions, which would have required restrictions on the number of persons onsite, including NO Spectators, likely limit on Pit Crew of 1 or 2, no Trade Stands, No displays and no food or beverage sales.
Whilst it was likely that the event would be conducted at a financial loss, our primary consideration has been the health and safety of Competitors and Crew, and our Officials and strict compliance with the Government restrictions applicable at the time of the event.
Unfortunately the situation in Victoria has continued to worsen with increasing doubt on our ability to conduct the event.
The VHRR Committee wishes to advise that we have come to the reluctant unanimous decision to cancel Historic Sandown 2020. We trust that you can appreciate our efforts in attempting to run the event and that you understand that we have been left with no choice in reaching this decision.
We look forward to welcoming you to Historic Sandown 2021 when hopefully this dreadful virus will be under control. In the meantime we trust that you and your families maintain good health in these difficult times.

Looking for a weekend with a difference? A weekend you’ll long remember? Then how about this year’s Historic Sandown meeting for a feast of top motor racing action. There’s plenty to see on all three days from November 6 – 8, 2020.
The very best sports, racing and touring cars from yesteryear will battle it out for line honours (and bragging rights) in an atmosphere of fun, fury and the fabulous. Widely regarded as one of Australia’s most important historic race meetings, Historic Sandown attracts competitors from all corners of Australia as well as enthusiasts from overseas. Forty events, 400 historic race cars and many of Australia’s greatest motor racing personalities will be on hand.
There will be plenty of off-track entertainment, as well including static displays of over 500 vehicles, and you’ll be made especially welcome if you and your friends arrive in your classic or collectible car – (or even on your old motorcycle). It all adds to the excitement!
Everything is conveniently located at Sandown Park, and there’s free access to the pits and the grandstand where excellent viewing of the trackside action can be enjoyed. A fine array of trade stands are added features, so come and grab a bargain or a piece of motoring history as well as a beverage and bite to eat from a range of food outlets.
The 2020 Historic Sandown has something for everyone and is promoted by the Victorian Historic Racing Register. For further enquiries contact 0402 224 133.
