It’s not so often that you’ll find the sights, sounds and smells of a whole century’s worth of Racing Icons in one place, it’s even less often that you’ll find them Door to Door Racing and being used in anger! Retro SpeedFest at Sydney Motorsport Park turned up exactly such a spectacle.

The organisers should give themselves a pat on the back for such a well organised event. Apart from a couple of Track Incidents the whole weekend ran smoothly and professionally.  We’re already looking forward to the 2015 event!
