The Hobart Sporting Car Club is one of Tasmania’s oldest-established motorsports clubs. Originally involved in various motorsport disciplines in its earliest days; today the HSCC is primarily involved in promoting events at Baskerville Raceway near Hobart.
We organise three of the six rounds of the Tasmanian Circuit Racing Championship as well as the popular and award-winning Baskerville 1000 6-hour endurance event for teams, and the annual Time Attack event.
Hobart Sporting Car Club members can enjoy club membership in various ways – as competitor, official or spectator. They are also eligible to compete in most events run by other car clubs, such as motorkanas and khanacross – ideal for young people who can compete from age 14 years.
This website is currently undergoing a gradual upgrade. We hope you’ve noticed a number of changes we’ve made to improve information, especially about our signature events and our new membership portal.
We’ve got more improvements planned including a comprehensive historical image gallery and a new online facility for completing event entry forms online.
Members can also access the latest HSCC event information via our Facebook page or via The Sporting Motorist newsletter.
2021 Tasmanian Circuit Racing Championship
Autocraft B1000 double-header another success
Just a few weeks after an entertaining and successful TCRC round at Baskerville, the very popular Baskerville 1000 endurance regularity events returned for the first time in 2021.
Separate Autocraft Baskerville 1000 events on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th attracted big fields with a large number of rookie drivers – satisfying one of the event’s principal aims – to attract new talent and give people a chance to participate in motorsport at an affordable, grassroots level.
The weather for both days was glorious albeit with very crisp starts! Some timing gremlins forced a 45-minute stoppage early in the Saturday event but things ran smoothly the rest of day the until the TOOL Toyota team took a comfortable victory after coming close a few times in recent events.
Congratulations to Stuart Brinsmead, Julien Steinfauser, Adam Halton and Greg Hayes for amassing an impressive 905 points from 231 laps.
Competitors in the Sunday event were a little less behaved. The CoC and pitlane officials were kept busy chatting with miscreants in the pitlane sin bin, serving time penalties for various indiscretions.
After hitting the lead after the first hour the Mazda-based family team of Michael, Todd and Brooke Elliott won convincingly with 910 points from 261 laps.
Full results and individual lap times are accessible here.
The next B1000 events are set for 16 and 17 October with a practice day on Friday 15th.
