Based on mildly modified production sports cars from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, Group S is one of the fastest growing historic motorsport categories with spectacular and diverse grids. Manufacturers include Austin Healey, Porsche, Lotus, Ferrari, MG, Datsun, Alfa Romeo, Shelby, Triumph, Chevrolet, Renault, De Tomaso and more. Split into three sub categories based on year of manufacture, there are plenty of ‘races-within-the-race’ throughout the extremely competitive and often full fields.
A company synonymous with racing, not to mention Steve McQueen, is Gulf Oil. In 2019 Gulf Oil Australia is once again supporting the category. The iconic Gulf livery was a regular on the tracks of Europe in the in 60’s and 70’s, everything from Porsche 917’s to Ford GT40’s… and now Gulf Oil is in Australia and on Australian race tracks with Group S.
