Rob Roy - 19th Nov 2017
ROB ROY HILL CELEBRATES 80 YEARS 1937-2017. 80 years of Rob Roy – a snapshot The first Rob Roy Speed Hillclimb was held on 1st Feb 1937 and FTD was taken at that meeting by Jack Day in the Day Special with a time of 37.39 seconds – the times have come down a long way since then, with Andrew Howell’s long standing record of 17.30 – set in 2009 (also, as it happens, on the 1st of February). Rob Roy is where the the first Australian and Victorian Hillclimb Championships were held – both on June 13th 1938. This event was won by Peter Whitehead in ERA R10B. Whitehead set FTD and a new record of 31.46 seconds – in those days the track was unsealed. The track was bituminised in 1939 – at that time sharing the distinction, with Shelley Walsh and Prescott, of being the only specially designed, bitumen surfaced, hillclimbs in the world. Prior to it’s closure in 1962, due to bush fires, eight of the record holders had also been Australian GP winners – including Sir Jack Brabham, Lex Davison, John Crouch and Peter Whitehead (UK)
The Summer Festival is set for the 11th & 12th of November, 2017, and will see the HSRCA returning to Sydney Motorsport Park for the first time in 2017 to hold our biggest historic race meeting of the year.  The return to Sydney Motorsport Park’s flowing curves and longer straights will give some of the more powerful cars a chance to stretch their legs, and will offer a great mix of challenges and opportunities for exciting competition. Its excellent facilities and proximity to the city make it a great place to hold a race meeting, and we’re looking forward to putting together a brilliant meeting to close out 2017’s historic motorsport season.  The focus of this meeting will be on providing plenty of quality track time and a safe, smoothly-run opportunity to get out and enjoy our historic sports and racing cars, good company and a festive atmosphere representative of the golden age of the sport.
