Speedweek for Motormarques

The Geelong Speed Trials for 2016 were held on Richie Boulevard, bordering Corio Bay, Where the event has been held for 50 years from 1956 until 2016.

Each year the event has attracted a collection of rare and historic competition vehicles to race against the clock over the quarter mile sprint.

It has always included an impressive display of unique, rare. and sometimes priceless automobiles and motor cycles from all aspects and all eras of motor sport.

Geelong's Speedweek trials was one of the rare occasions in Australia where you could see such an array of awe inspiring vehicles in action, hear and smell their engines at full chat while experiencing the time-honoured but carnival atmosphere of classic sprinting.
