Over the weekend of 31st October to the 1st of November I took the elite down to the HSRCA Spring Festival to spend a sporadically-soggy weekend amongst an eclectic collection of historic sports and racing cars.
Well here we are in November! Who would have thunk it – I’m not exactly sure where this year has gone, but it does seem to have flashed by a bit faster even than the last few.
I’ll blame Covid. And that’s the last mention, I promise.
This is late as I was away all weekend at the delayed HSRCA Spring Festival at Wakefield. What a great turnout of varied and unusual cars – I am constantly surprised that there are so many hidden gems, and better yet that they are brought out to play. I’ll try to scribble some notes elsewhere to go with Seth’s awesome photography.

It feels like it’s only just begun in earnest, but 2020’s CSCA super sprint series signed off on Sunday afternoon, settling in for a Summer vacation following a spectacular day of sprinting around Sydney Motorsport Park.
The final CSCA round of 2020 was held on Sunday the 18th of October on Sydney Motorsport Park’s North circuit, hosted by the Jaguar Drivers Club of Australia. It was round six of a season somewhat paradoxically only four rounds long, and our first visit to Sydney Motorsport Park since we were on the same layout for round six of the 2019 series back in September of last year.
‘The Preserve’ is the newsletter of the Council of Motor Clubs. It’s made available to members of CMC-affiliated clubs, and that means you!
This month’s magazine remembers Chris Mede and Jim Kerr, and features a very comprehensive article from the RMS about what can and can’t be done to a vehicle on HVS registration, along with plenty more. The RMS article is very much worth a look if you take advantage of HVS registration, or would like to at some point.
You can grab the October edition of ‘The Preserve’ from the following link, and we’ll archive it on the members page here.
