This year's Sandown Historic meeting will see over 400 racing, sports and touring cars from yesteryear take part in an action packed three day motor sport carnival.
Sandown International Raceway opened for action in 1962 with a spectacular meeting.
Fifty years later, on November 9-11, the VHRR presents Big Bad Sandown, the Return of the Thunder.
The event will feature a wide cross-section of Historic racing, sports and touring cars from the 1920s to the 1990s.
The feature race is a 15-lap event for the popular Groups C and A touring cars (generally referred to as ‘the Bathurst cars’).
Also making the ground shake will be the thundering Formula 5000s. These are the 5-litre open wheelers that ran as Australia’s top national formula during the 1970s and featured in those epic battles known as the Tasman Series.
Car club displays of more than 300 desirable vehicles will also be on show for the public to enjoy. Mixing with the cars and drivers makes Historic racing a truly memorable experience.
Gates open at 8am. Free admission – Friday, $30 – Saturday, $40 – Sunday. $60 - Weekend pass.
$5 - pensioner concession. Children under 15 and accompanied by an adult - free.
