Porsche's 60th anniversary in Australia was celebrated at Phillip Island, Porsche brought a selection of their sports cars spanning six decades to the event. The most notable Porsche was the 935/78 'Moby Dick', the nickname relates to the cars giant extended 'whale tail'. More celebrations included the 40th anniversary of the Ford Falcon XY GTHO and the 50th anniversary of the E-type Jaguar.

There was plenty of 'on track' racing with a substantial race program spread over two full days of non stop competition.

ANNIVERSARY DISPLAYS:

Porsche, Ford and Jaguar cars featured in various displays during the race weekend, Porsche certainly had the bragging rights given their magnificent display of cars direct from the Porsche Museum, Stuttgart.

HISTORIC FORMULA FORD:

I expected close racing in this category and wasn't disappointed. The category actually caters for Group Fa (formerly Group Q) and Fb (formerly Group R), 1969~1983.

REGULARITY:

Probably my favourite race category at classic car racing events, a wide variety of machinery 'contest' the event with famous marques including Porsche, Talbot Lago, Bugatti, Jaguar, Lancia and Maserati carefully negotiating the circuit.

The 'clickable' image depicts the amazing #44: 1906 Darracq negotiating Phillip Island's Lukey Heights...

GROUP A AND C:

Full on competition here, cars in this category include those complying with Australian Group C Touring Cars as promulgated by CAMS from 1973~1984 and 1984~1992 inclusive. The cars must retain the overall appearance and livery as they carried during their relevant competition era.

GROUP Sc:

The category for production Sports Cars without a competition history, generally manufactured from 1970~1977 inclusive. The most popular marques competing were Alfa Romeo, Ferrari and Porsche.

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