HISTORIC RACING CAR CLUB
The Historic Racing Car
Club (Qld) Inc. was formed in early 1990s with the amalgamation of two
similar racing clubs. These Clubs were the Historic Racing
Register (Qld) that catered for Sports Cars and Racing Cars that had a
racing history, as well as Production Based Sports Cars. The
other Club was the Queensland Appendix J Association (named
after the racing classification of the era) This organisation
catered for Production Based Touring Cars up to the end of 1964. The cars
were replicas of the cars that raced in the period and most did not have a
specific racing history.
As time moves on new
groups of cars become eligible for Historic Racing which has led to
remarkable growth and interest in the Sport. The HRCC now caters for all
types of cars, Open Wheel Racing Cars, Sports Cars (purpose built and
production) and Touring Cars. The Club is part of a
network of clubs with similar objectives and guidelines that operate in
other States of Australia.
