Our cruise to the Phillip Island Historic Races on March 18th is fully subscribed and we’re unable to take any more entries. We look forward to seeing all the entrants pre registered for this cruise in Tooradin before 8:30am to collect your track entry stickers.

Cruise to the Phillip Island ‘Classic’ Historic Races on Saturday 18th March 2017

With the support of the organizers, the Victorian Historic Racing Register and the major event sponsor Shannons, we are again able to host a cruise for owners of pre ’75 chrome bumper and special interest cars to this year’s Classic. We’re able to offer pre registered entrants in our cruise, discounted entry for both driver and passengers, a free program and reserved parking trackside adjacent the EXPO building with direct access to the pits.

What’s in store at the 2017 Classic.
With more than 500 entries and record crowds expected, the 2017 event will have a strong representation of production touring cars Group N, and Group C & A cars. Of particular importance will be the 30th anniversary celebration marking the 1st win in the world for a Ford Sierra with Dick Johnson at the wheel in Australia. To mark the occasion it is expected that there will be up to ten Sierra’s racing at Phillip Island next year. The spectacular Group JK & LB sports and racing cars with a competition history prior to the end of 1960 also create great interest from spectators at this exciting motor sport event. Event Patron John Bowe will also be racing at Phillip Island over that weekend. Along with the Sierras there will be more than 10 Formula 5000’s – pre 1978, Formula 1’s and Indy cars racing.

One of the great advantages of attending on a Saturday is that you’re free to walk around the cars in less crowded pit garages and chat to the owners and drivers. There’s also trade displays along with lots of classic cars to check out in the spectator paddocks as well.
We recommend this as one of the best motorsport events held in Australia and we kick it off with a pleasant early morning cruise down to the Island. Great cars racing, rare and historic cars on display in both the EXPO building and the pits as well as trade stands, good food vendors and facilities make this an outstanding event to attend especially if you’re in our cruise!

Doing your own thing!
Please note that if you arrive at the track and not in our cruise convoy and attempt to enter the track via the public entry gate, even if you’re pre registered for our cruise, the gate staff will not know of any details or arrangements we have in place with the VHRR for our cruise and you will be required to pay the $35 per adult day entry. OUCH!
