Historic Winton Celebrates 110 Years of Morgan Three-Wheelers

MEDIA RELEASE 10/04/2019:

Gary Neilsen and his wife racing their Morgan Three-Wheeler

The Morgan Three-Wheeler was first released in 1909 and whilst a relatively rare vehicle in Australia, it’s been seen competing against sidecars and Gary Neilsen of Shepparton is an aficionado of the marque.

Gary and his family own three Morgan Three-Wheelers with all being placed on show at 43rd Historic Winton on 18th and 19th May.

“My wife and her father raced a 1939 F2, for many years and is well known in historic racing circles,” Gary said.

HFS Morgan first set out to build his own custom motorcycle in 1909 but constructed a three-wheeler cycle car instead. Sales were initially low but took off with the introduction of the two-seater version in 1911.

See the feature display of Morgan Three-Wheelers in the Competition Paddock area at Historic Winton.

All up, more than 2,000 cars go on display around the track at this iconic all-historic race meet.

Historic Winton – Australia largest all-historic race and display event will be held at Winton Motor Raceway.

Discounted online tickets are now available online until midnight, Thursday, 16 May. Tickets are then available at the gate from 8am on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May.
