All the excitement of racing from a bygone era returns to Sandown again when the thunderous 5000s, nimble Formula Fords and exciting Touring cars take to the track at this year’s event on November 9-11.
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. There’s something for everyone, with as many as 12 different Historic categories from the 1920s to the ‘80s taking part in a three-day weekend of great motor sport action.
To add further interest to the meeting, a huge rollup of 800 cars, including an impressive display of Mustangs and Toranas, are expected to be on show around the track. Come and join them or show your interest by bringing along your own precious toy.
A number of the ‘greats’ of Australian motor racing will be on hand for autograph sessions throughout the weekend, and we encourage all spectators to bring along their memorabilia to be signed. Free posters are also available. This year the Victorian Historic Racing Register, organizers of the annual Historic Sandown meeting, will pay tribute to one of its ambassadors, Alfredo Costanzo, who will retire from his racing career at the circuit where he made his debut.
