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.

The CC RMIT Rally was held on Saturday March 2 on mountainous country roads not far from the site of the recent disastrous bushfires that wiped out thousands of hectares of pristine bush. As the photos show - the Rally route was relatively unaffected, and fast times and lots of incidents resulted in a number of DNF results, including one roll-over.Because of file size limitations, most of the photos taken have had to be placed on the Motormarques Facebook site.

Of the many photohgraphs that Martin has taken of the Phillip Iland Classic for 2014, my favourite is the shot showing John Coffin assisting George Hetrel push the damaged Bugatti (Car 35 with the damaged tail) back to the garages.
