A passion like no other

The VHRR was established in 1976 to promote Historic Motor Racing in Victoria, and where possible assist with its growth throughout Australia. Race meetings and speed events are held though-out the year, giving owners of historic racing cars, and those interested in such vehicles, the opportunity to exercise their cars and feel the exhilaration of running such fine machinery, or just to be close by.

The club has been so successful over the years that meetings held at the Grand Prix Circuit at Phillip Island, Winton Motor Raceway, Sandown Park and the Roby Roy Hill Climb. The events now attract some of the most awe-inspiring cars from Australia, New Zealand, and the rest of the world. We regularly see cars from the UK, USA, Germany, Hong Kong etc. Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, BRM, Maserati, Cooper, Jaguar, HWM, Maybach, MG, Lago Talbot, plus many Australian specials.
