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.

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2006

Written by
Text & Photographs by Carol Corliss                                                                                              This weekend of personalities, spectacle and superb machinery with a stately home thrown in is far too action packed to attempt a full coverage of every aspect of this great motoring weekend.  Instead, I have given the reader a flavour of what it is all about with biopics of items of interest, especially aimed at those of you who are in other parts of the world and may not have the opportunity to attend. The Earl of March, of Goodwood House is a true motoring enthusiast who happens to have the raw material at hand to lay on this world class event.

The Vintage Sports Car Club - The Boulonge &Hawthorn Trophy Meeting Oulton Park - 10th June 2006

Written by
This was the second VSCC meeting here since the circuit has been improved by MotorSport Vision and the wonderful weather contributed to a gloriously successful meeting. This could only be England on a sunny day in June.  Many of our readers will not have had the opportunity of visiting venues such as Oulton.  It is set in the pleasant rolling rural land of Cheshire and the parkland to a long gone country house forms the circuit. The house burned down long ago and there is a memorial close by the pit area to casualties of that fire.  That area is remarkably unspoiled and very pleasant indeed to stick around after the meeting.
