Preserving Tasmanian Car Racing History and Memories

Club legend Daryl Wilcox recently driving his GM Holden FX sedan Baskerville Raceway.

 

This  website is for Members of the Historic Racing Car Club of Tasmania Inc. and  others who are interested in the collection, preservation, use and racing of  historic racing cars.


Our club is about preserving old photographs, visiting old and current racing venues in the state and seeking out old historic racing cars. Some of the tracks visited from time to time are Longford, Quorn Hall, Valleyfield and other old racing and hillclimb venues.

Old Track Visit "REMINISCING LONGFORD"

PLANNED REMINISCING "LONGFORD" VISIT AND BBQ EVENT

Yet to be confirmed, but well into the planning of the event. This has been extremely well attended last year and in previous visits. HRCCT holds a BBQ under the "Viaduct" one of the classic features of the old racetrack. The day usually concluded with a couple of refreshments with HRCCT and other legends at the Lonford Hotel (Pub Corner on the circuit). Old racecars have been brought to the site in the past to add a bit of nostalgia to the event and provides a good photo opportunity for guests.
