There is a vast economic benefit to businesses such as motels, caravan parks, hotels, restaurants and service stations in the towns and cities where these events are being hosted. Many Councils throughout Australia can see the benefit to their communities and welcome events with open arms.

To celebrate National Motoring Heritage Day the Shoalhaven Historic Vehicle Club Inc will be hosting a themed Aussie Assembled Vehicles display of vintage, historic and classic vehicles and bikes. This event is held at the Berry Showground and vehicles are $5, spectators $2 and children under 12 free. Entries must be received by 8th May for the event. Info 0417 671 107.

9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The 44th Historic Winton will run a scaled back version of the event for historic car and motorbike competitors on 22nd & 23rd May 2021 at Winton Motor Raceway.

“The Austin 7 Club will run a restricted event, under a Tier Three COVID Permit,” Organiser and Austin 7 Club President, Len Kerwood said. He said that attendance will be limited to car and motor bike entrants, their pit crews and required officials.

At this stage, no public tickets will be available, and invitations to car clubs for displays will not be possible. “We are saddened that our event will not take its usual shape, and have not made this decision lightly. However, the costs involved in the strict COVID Safe compliance and the continually changing Government requirements, has led us to this decision.

“Our loyal supporters; the spectators, car and motorcycle clubs, sponsors, advertisers and trade vendors will be greatly missed, however the running of the scaled back event will continue to support historic motorsport and keep Historic Winton alive for future years.”

If COVID restrictions ease, there may be a light at the end of the tunnel for spectators. “If eased restrictions are in place it may be possible to have spectators, but this will be determined in coming weeks,” Len said. “Announcements will be made on our website and on Facebook.”

Alongside the action of the cars on Sunday is the family festival with bands, children’s entertainment, competitions, food and other stalls in operation along with displays of vintage cars and street machines. 2021 marks the 30th anniversary of the current day event and 85th anniversary of the original event.
