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 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.

Bumper local entry for Historics
It’s great to see how locals have supported this year’s Baskerville Historics meeting after the pandemic forced the cancellation of last year’s event and put the kibosh on mainland participation in this year’s event .
There’s a huge 170+ entries for the three day event 17-19 September, featuring a wonderfully varied array of race cars, including the return of some old favourites and the emergence of many new cars in the sports sedan and open wheeler categories.
There will be gate sales only – adults $10 Friday, $25 Saturday and Sunday, kids under 14 free.
Masks must be worn Saturday and Sunday.
More information on the Baskerville Historics Facebook page.
