In addition, for these cars there will be NO entry fee. Non eligible MG’s could park in adjacent grassed area.  We would like to involve all car clubs whose membership comprises appropriate vehicles and have them make this event an official event for their club. Clubs could also organise a display of their clubs vehicles in a special area that will be provided.  We would be most gratified if you could join us on this occasion preliminary interest indicates that this event will be very well supported by both NSW and interstate vehicles. Please advise your interest or otherwise either to myself or contact the HSRCA direct on ph. 02 9988 4743, fax. 02 9988 4277, email ; This email address is being protected from spambots.
