THE PHILLIP ISLAND CLASSIC

VHRR Historic Motor Races, March 19, 2011.

My first trip of note in the Aprilia, my first motor race meeting since the Australian F1 GP in 2000, my first historic meeting since 1992, I must get out more. During the day I discovered a few personal issues, my hearing is much worse than before, my eyesight is not that great behind the camera, hence a few dodgy shots, and the last time I saw quite a few of these “historic” race cars, they were new! Oh well.


The highlights of the meeting, for me, were the three Maserati 250Fs, amazing real Formula One cars, and the collection of factory Porsche Le Mans winning cars. And something that caught me a little off guard was the enormous interest in the Aprilia, everyone loved her.
