The popular Baskerville Historics meeting is back in 2021 after the pandemic forced the cancellation of last year’s event.
The three-day meeting will run Friday 17th to Sunday 19th September with practice and qualifying on Friday, racing on Saturday and Sunday with the popular grid walk a feature at lunchtime Sunday.
Despite the pandemic preventing participation by mainland cars, the bumper entry list of more than 170 local cars is one of the biggest and most varied in years.
Spectator admission fees have been held at 2019 prices – $25 adults, kids under 14 free. There will be gate sales, only. Masks are mandatory for all attendees on the Saturday and Sunday, and all patrons will be required to check-in for COVID either by QR code or manually.
A “coffee and cars” style event will be held Saturday morning with the first 50 eligible cars parking in the show area receiving a free TasCaffe coffee voucher to be used onsite. On Sunday, drivers of pre-1990 cars participating in the Shannon’s Show n Glo will be admitted for $20 with all other adult car occupants paying $25.
Fans can expects the usual array of historic race cars from through the ages, either on static display or competing in the special events for these cars.
The always popular Muscle Car Cup returns, and the largest field of big-banger historic sports sedans in decades will be crowd favourites. Holden fans will appreciate the large field of early model Holden race cars.
Small Ford Group N racers such as Escorts, Cortinas, Anglias and Capris will also be in the spotlight with a special race for them. Also with their own race are the mighty Minis competing for the Kit Ellis Memorial trophy.
A select number of local race categories will also be on the program including the venerable HQs, historic sports and racing cars and the always-anticipated duels between the booming Mustangs and Camaros and the pesky Toranas. Large Regularity fields are also featured.
