2017 Historic Lakeside race meeting ConcludedCongratulations to all the race winners.Thanks go to all the volunteers who gave their valuable time to enable this race meeting to be a great success.
Warm sunny days set the scene for a great weekend of historic motorsport at the iconic Lakeside Park Raceway in Brisbane. While the number of cars entered was lower than desired, the result was a relaxed event that was high on atmosphere. Group N turned on some great racing with Brian Wood and Grahame Wrobel out front entertaining the spectators with close racing. But not far behind them was Steve Land and Stephen Sullivan in their V6 Capri’s. Norm Singleton, in his smaller capacity Alfa GTV showed his Lakeside experience to produce very quick lap times.The fast cars in Group S&T were Porsche 911’s however Michael Mckelliget showed that his Datsun 260Z was not to be taken for granted with his spirited driving. Groups O, P Q & R racing and sports car races were an interesting affair with Bill Norman setting the quickest times of the weekend in his Ralt RT4. Unfortunately, the Mildren Waggot “Yellow Submarine” of Lionel Ayres was running poorly and did not reveal its potential.Geoff Karger made a clean sweep of the Group L, M, F & V races in his Reynard Formula Ford.Regularity saw a mixed collection of cars once again. From an Austin 7 to a GSM Dart and Mustangs, a Hillman Gazelle, Cortinas, a Commodore and more, it made the day very interesting for competitors and specators alike.The photos below highlight some of the cars racing at lakeside over the weekend.Please support these photographers who share images with HRCC.
