WINTON FESTIVAL OF SPEED SET TO BE EVEN BIGGER IN 2019
Join us for 24 categories of racing, over 500 display cars, and celebrating 50 years of Torana, Bolwell Nagari, HDT racing and the Ford Capri.
Entries are now open on for this year’s exciting Winton Festival of Speed.
Set across two days (August 3-4), WFOS is putting on its biggest program of events since inception. New categories have been added to the program, including HQ Racing and Historic Sports Sedans, and this year also sees the return of Formula 5000 – a category not seen since the days of the Rose City Trophy celebrating James Hunt’s victory in 1978. Currently, there are 20 Group U historic sports car intended entries.
A significant feature of this year’s festival will be the hotly anticipated debut of the new affordable stepping stone in racing: Hyundai Excels. There will be a 15 lap enduro race to conclude the race day program on Saturday evening, with over 25 cars expected for this event.
Come Sunday there will be another two big enduro races: the Just Cars Touring Car Cup of 50 kilometres at 1.20pm, followed by the Formula Ford 50th anniversary feature race of 15 laps.
Both days the Shannons Show and Shine parade will play host to a truly spectacular display of over 500 cars. Plus, all the regular Winton categories will be present including the Classic Sports Cars of Group S, MG Racing, J&K, Lb Racing, M&O Sports & Racing, PQ&R Sports & Racing, as well as regularity cars including beautifully prepared Group C tribute cars, of which 14 entries are expected.
