48-215 the real age of ‘tin top’ racing where men were men and Michelins were nervous.
During the upcoming Queens Birthday long weekend June 9th – 11th Sydney Motorsport Park invites owners of Holden Humpys whether they are in FX or FJ form that have race history from whatever background. Appendix J cars and those that currently run in various classes at all levels are invited to Sydney Motorsport Park where you’ll witness a great selection of Aussie and export period Muscle.
All cars are invited over the two days of the event, with your cars featured prominently inside the Pit Area on display in specially designed locations (can be stored securely overnight), close to all the action with ticketing provided for both driver and passenger free of charge.
We’re also including Parade Laps during the event led by an authentic pace car and why I hear you ask there isn’t the ability to go a bit faster? Well that gets back to numbers of Humpy’s AND the variation in owner/driver ability…. ( In other words we’d need a field of at least 25 log booked and together as a group). This is a precursor to ‘hopefully’ getting a category up and running for the 2019 Return to Fathers Day event’ of Humpys and models up to 1964 including FE/C and EJ/H!
We’d love to see the colours and those friendly shapes from the era so the last 3 generations of motorsport fans can see where ‘tin top racing really started.
For details of entry and ticketing to the event, simply email Todd Martin with a picture of your ‘HUMPY’.

Have a squawk at these two Bathurst winners from 1965 and 1966!
Bo Seton behind the wheel in a beaut tribute to his ‘1966 Bathurst Cooper S’, which is being bought to the event courtesy of the Lucas family in a tribute to Bo.
Recently both Bob Holden and Bo Seton spent time together as Bo transitions from the Gold Coast to the Mid North Coast of NSW where Bob has resided for many years.
After nearly 60 years of racing against each other and not really spending time as mates Bo rang Bob out of the blue and asked if he could go and visit. They sat and talked that afternoon about their time and Bob openly admitted he shed a tear as Bo left after realising they both were very similar in their ideals and beliefs, realising missed opportunities through certain periods in life both on and off track.
We can guarantee a number of things during this year’s Australian Muscle Car Masters….
(1) Bob Holden will be racing his Group A Toyota (still)!
(2) This Cooper S along with a number of cars will be onsite as a tribute to Bo…..and
(3) Bo will be supporting Bob and Bob will be celebrating Bo.
We only ponder what would have occurred if these two blokes had got together in the late 70’s early 80’s as a team?
If you see either at the event – go and shake their hands… and tell them how much they’re admired!
CALLING ALL XT GT OWNERS
Bo is also, of course. the father to Glenn, and his grandson Aaron is now making his name felt in Australian Motorsport. To have three generations of Motorsport among us is such a great thing – and to celebrate their motorsport history, we are dedicating a large area in the Pits for EX-racecars of Bo’s plus a collective of roadcars including Capris, GT 500s and if we can find someone willing to sticker their car up to replicate Bo’s 68 Bathurst XT GT (Zircon Green) then we’d sure be grateful to include that in a very special Parade Lap and Presentation on Pit Straight… SO if you own a Capri, or GT Cortina, we’re looking for a couple – and of course the XT GT which will be joined by genuine Bo Seton tin tops from the Golden Era at this year’s event.
