Huge, pre-COVID-level crowds packed into Winton Motor Raceway over the weekend for 47th Historic Winton.

“About 5,000 people enjoyed the spectacle of car, motorcycle and sidecar racing across 48 events,”  event director and President of the Austin 7  Club,” Len Kerwood said.

The great news is that races can be watched online by race category after the event on Blend Live TV.  (https://blendline.tv)        

Highlights included the Cortina Challenge won by Nick Gascone (Melbourne) in his 1963 Ford Cortina, the Harley vs Indian Hand Shift Battle, the Sunday Parade featuring the best of the Shannons car park display, and the almost gymnastic racing of the sidecars.

The ‘Best Presented’ and other car trophies were presented at a post-race event on Saturday night. 

Winners included:

  • Best Presented Car – “Mr Juicy” 1977 Ralt RT1 – driver Malcom Oastler of Candelo, NSW
