The 47th Historic Winton on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May at Winton Motor Raceway offers all the much-loved traditional action with some special feature events adding to the excitement.

The weekend of historic cars and motorcycles kicks off on Friday 24th May for the Benalla Historic Vehicle Tour where best-presented or unusual vehicles are in the running for a Historic Winton “Director’s Choice” Award.

On Saturday, a special Cortina Challenge will be held, as souped up, zappy, little family favourites of the 60s and 70s compete in neck and neck action.

Another N category feature for the second year, is the Tin Top Regularity.  This time trial event, last year, saw a range of Holden FX and FJs race alongside Cortinas, Minis and a big variety of familiar and more exotic brands.  The full-on N category races put spectators on the edge-of-their-seats too.

A motorcycle favourite series will also start on Saturday as Indian Motocycles battle it out against Harley Davidsons.

On Sunday, the traditional lunch feature of the Sunday Parade presents the beautiful, the unusual and the rusty relics as the best in show circulate in splendour on the Winton Motor Raceway track.

Of course Historic Winton is all about the racing, but spectators can also enjoy the marketplace, great coffee, delicious food and the massive displays in the Shannons Car Park and in car parks around the track. 

One of the anniversary displays will be 90 years of the Austin 7 ‘Jewel’ collection.  The Ruby, The Opal and The Pearl were released in the same year with different body features for a diversifying marketplace with many different purposes for their cars.

There’s so much going on that a complimentary bus transports visitors around the track to the various attractions.

The Austin 7 Club is proud to have been staging events at Winton Motor Raceway for more than 50 years with the 47th Historic Winton bound to be yet another spectacle.

The 47th Historic Winton is Australia’s longest running and most popular historic car and motorcycle race event and is one of regional Victoria’s largest sporting events.
