The 6th Anniversary of the Barry Sheene FOS witnessed the first running of the Trans Tasman Challenge at Eastern Creek. There was a wide variety of historic racing classes including the Barry Sheene Memorial Race and the Paul Dobbs Memorial F750 race. The Post Classic Racing Association of New South Wales (PCRA) ran the event and given the massive scope of entries, displays and trade sales outlets it was a top effort.

Incredibly, it was the Sidecar activities that captured my imagination, a contingent of New Zealand Sidecar racers only added to the spectacle!

CLASSIC (Pre 1962) 500cc/Unlimited:

Great machinery in this class, Ariel, BSA, Honda, Matchless and Norton to name but a few. The category offered the competitors a total of four races over the weekend.

The star of the weekend had to be B Grader Levi Day on a Honda 500 twin, Levi set a new lap record for the class, unfortunately crashing on Sunday.

POST CLASSIC & FORGOTTEN ERA:

This class specifically includes Post Classic & Forgotten Era 750cc and Post Classic & Forgotten Era Unlimited machinery, four races were held over the weekend, each incorporating four sub classes of racing.

Some of Australia's best riders competed including Robbie Phillis, Mal Campbell and Warwick Nowland.

THE SIDECAR RACES:

There were two categories of Sidecar events at the meeting, Classic, Forgotten Era & F2 Cup/ Modern F2 and the Australian F1 Sidecar Championship and a major race in the form of the Trans Tasman Sidecar Challenge. Whatever the category or race, the teams and their respective machinery put on a great display with some amazing antics around the twisty Eastern Creek circuit.

ATMOSPHERE:

Huge spectator numbers, trade displays, show and shine presentations, Croz selling books, QBE girls!, motorcycles even a CBX1000Z!

It was all happening, the Event Organisers allowed access to most areas throughout the three days of the Festival and the Security guys kept a low profile, well done.

The 'clickable' image opposite depicts the QBE girls, woohoo...

I LOVE NEW TECHNOLOGY, TABLETS, LAPTOPS, DIGITAL CAMERAS, MOBILE PHONES/WIRELESS BROADBAND, GPS, ETC.  ALL SO COOL AND 'PORTABLE'......
