Phillip Island Classic Festival of Motorsport
Camera: Pentax K20D Photo Location: Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit 
Posted By: RHN12, 03-20-2017, 05:00 PM

Last weekend saw the running of the annual Philip Island Classic Festival of Motorsport. There was a huge range of cars from Australia, the USA, UK and Europe, competing and on display. I guess the highlights for me were the two Ferrari F1 cars once driven by Michele Alboreto and Stefan Johanssen, the 1974 F1 March 741 driven by local legend John Bowe and what was then the all-conquering Nissan GTR. There were two GTRs here, one of the Gibson Motorsport "works" cars and the "semi-works" GIO car run by Bob Forbes Racing. I took well over 500 photos so picking a few to post here was difficult. The weather was fantastic and the crowd bigger than last year. This event seems to grow in stature each year. A good thing for Phillip Island and classic/heritage motorsport.

I haven't figured out how to caption the pics so, in order, they are; ERA once owned by the Prince of Siam, F1 Ferrari 156/85, 1974 F1 March 741, Nissan GTR, Elfin ME5, BMW E30 M3, Brabham BT31, Cooper T51 (?), ARGO JM19 C2, Lola T330 F5000.

Good photos, thanks. It has been many years since my last visit to Philip Island. Captions can be added to each image in Photoshop.

looks like a great event - the GIO sponsored Skyline brings back memories of watching the James Hardie 1000 on british TV

Another great set of photos. I appreciate the pic of the E30 M3; it's the multi-great grandpappy of my M4.
