Wake­field’s 40th an­niver­sary meet­ing gath­ers pace

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

The race meet­ing to mark the 40th an­niver­sary of All His­toric Racing, to be held at Goul­burn’s Wake­field Park on Septem­ber 17/18, is shap­ing up to be a very special week­end. Or­gan­iser Matthew Barag­wanath from Wake­field Park Race­way says that since en­try forms went on, he has re­ceived en­quiries from all over Aus­tralia, with very no­table his­toric bikes and cars ready to com­pete. Above all, he says this will be a ‘warm and friendly’ event, with no protests, low cost en­try fees, and the best of­fi­cials in Aus­tralia. Matthew also says, “It is hoped that this All His­toric meet­ing at Wake­field Park will be the start of a re­nais­sance of his­toric racing and will pave the way for more rider and driver-fo­cussed events.” The mo­tor­cy­cle side of the pro­gram will see events for Pe­riod 1, 2 and 3 so­los and side­cars, with all rid­ers hav­ing at least three races over the week­end. Mo­tor­cy­cle co­or­di­na­tor Rob Rowe says, “The side­car field will be dom­i­nated by the Vic­to­ri­ans with the Tri­umphs and Vin­cents of var­i­ous mem­bers of the Large fam­ily com­pet­ing against a strong field of other pre-1963 out­fits. The Hand Change charg­ers of Class C will have the track to them­selves for a fea­ture event of Har­leys and In­di­ans. Solo ma­chines will race in groups that give each rider a chance to have fun with­out look­ing over his shoul­der for some­one lap­ping him. Rid­ers with special ma­chines that do not want to race can take part in the Ride Day event to ride in a non-com­pet­i­tive man­ner.” For en­try forms and more de­tails, con­tact the Wake­field Park Race­way of­fice on (02) 4822 2811 or email races­ec­re­[email protected]­field­park.com.au.
