Interstate Historic Motorsport Events
Phillip Island Classic - 8th to 10th March, 2019 Once again these dates fall one week prior to the Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park which makes it truly an exceptional week of Motor Sport in Melbourne with two of Victoria’s major sporting events. Recognised as one of the world’s largest historic motor racing events on the international calendar by the number of entries and races held over the three days, the Phillip Island Classic is expected to once again draw more than 500 entries with vehicles from around the world. 2019 marks the 30th Phillip Island Classic event along with other significant anniversaries such as the 60th anniversary of Formula Ford, the 60th anniversary of the Mini, the 50th anniversary of the Holden Dealer Team which first raced at Sandown in 1969, the 50th anniversary of the Alfa Romeo Car Club, 50 years of Formula Ford and 51st year of Porsche and it’s also the 50th year of the Bolwell Nagari. Of significance, 1979 was the last year in which the Holden Torana Hatchback A9X raced with Peter Brock and Jim Richards in their outstanding win in the James Hardie 1000 Bathurst followed by Peter Jansen and Larry Perkins in 2nd place.  It was also this year also that Bob Morris won the Touring Car Championship driving a Holden Torana A9X. This special car, now owned by Andrew Cannon, will be racing at Phillip Island over the weekend with Andrew at the wheel. To mark the anniversary, Formula Ford racing will be highlighted at this event along with Group C & A Touring cars, with feature races on both Saturday and Sunday.
