There’s nothing quite like the thunder of these historic machines attacking the unique and challenging layout that Winton raceway offers. To this day the best of the best in Australian Motorsport still use and love this track for what it offers, you will too.

In conjunction with proud VHRR supporter Shannon’s Insurance, there will be over 500 stunning car club vehicles on display around the circuit including a select group for the annual Shannon’s parade.  

The 2024 theme will be Ford vs Holden to celebrate 50 years of the mighty 1974 Ford Falcon XA Coupe Winning Bathurst with John Goss and VHRR club member Kevin Bartlett as well as the fearsome Torana SLR/5000 and L34 with various static displays supported by Gray’s Online. Expect to see some of these great cars out on the track in Group C&A and Touring Car Tributes.

Another celebration event this year will be 60 years of the mighty Ford Mustang. The first-ever race win of any Ford Mustang was right here in Australia in November 1964 with Norm Beechey and we will be inviting all owners and Mustang car clubs to join us.
