The field for the inaugural Sports Racing Car Invitational is coming together nicely and the latest stunner confirmed for these high-speed demonstration sessions is Bruce Gowan’s newly restored Repco V8-powered Toyota Celica Sports Sedan. The car’s creator, John McCormack, will be on hand at Sydney Motorsport Park to chat about the unique beast; and the Jaguar XJS Sports Sedan of Mark Trenoweth, which will also hit the track.
The Sports Racing Car Invitational is a new on-track activity for 2016. It consists of a trio of 15-minute sessions – one Saturday and two Sunday – for glamour racing sportscars and historically significant Sports Sedans. The field will comprise muscular GT, Can-Am, Le Mans-style and Big Banger ‘sporties’.
We are hopeful frontrunners from the Kerrick Sports Sedan Series will also take part.
Heritage Hots Laps is being rested for 2016.
