HISTORIC RACE MEETING DATES SET FOR 2015
At the recent Australian Historic Motor Racing Clubs (AHMRC) meeting, delegates were able to confirm the
following dates for 2015.
A co-operative attitude prevailed, providing separation from interstate Historic Meetings, enabling Members of all Clubs
to compete interstate as well as at home. HRCC depends on strong participation from interstate Competitors to help
make our Race Meetings the success they have been, and considerable numbers of HRCC Members travel to
interstate Meetings regularly, which helps those organising Clubs and of course a great time is had by all!

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE October 2014
Alan Steel
Penned by V-P Peter Walsh in Alan’s absence
A
nother busy month coming up with a lot happening in the Club.
First up is the proposed adoption of the Draft Constitution which will be voted on at the General
Meeting on Monday 20th October. I can only reiterate the published memo (see website) on the subject
and recommend your positive vote for this modern and constructive Constitution. Many thanks to Milton
Brennan and the Committee for the work that has gone into this project.
Our big event for this time of year is Noosa/THE HILL, now in its 17th running! A diverse field of 145 cars will
contest the spectacular Gyndier Drive climb in the Tewantin National Forest. The Hill is a joint venture of
Noosa Beach Classic Car Club and HRCC, with Alan Steel being the long time and hard working HRCC
leader of the event. There are more improvements to the track and the facilities for 2014 and the local
authorities are to be thanked for their assistance, but it’s mainly the work of the volunteers of the NBCCC
who drive this project.
There will be a pre-event Working bee on Saturday 25th October from 8am and HRCC Members are urged to
lend a hand, it’s mainly grass and fallen sticks, etc to be tidied up but it’s a big area and many hands….
Next month’s Annual General Meeting notices have been published on our website already and repeated in
this “Historic Torque”. All Committee positions are open for election and while some Members will offer to
continue in their roles, we really need several new Committee Members who have the passion to take on a
portfolio and make a serious contribution to the present and the future of the Club. We propose in the near
future to be seeking assistance with these roles from Members who have a particular interest, eg a Race
Group or a promotional role. Your serious consideration is requested. Committee nominations must be in the
hands of the Secretary by Monday 27th October (see notices on page11).
John Tupicoff is keen to hear from anyone who feels he can make a solid contribution to the preparation for
the ‘Autumn Historics’ and ‘Historic Queensland’. These are big events and don’t happen by themselves.
Some new faces on the Race Committee and the Volunteer list would be welcome. (see bottom of page 6).
Many thanks to John Tupicoff, Chris Fry, Tony Hastings and the Group N committee for their background
effort to make this weekend’s Ipswich Classic work for the Members involved. You might like to go and watch
them play!
Peter Walsh Kind Regards

FOR SALE: PEREGRINE F2 1600 cc single seater.
This is a Group Q F2 single seater with CAMS C of D and historic log book and was originally built by Ivan Clencie in Melbourne in 1969. It is powered by a dry‐sump Cortina engine with dual 40 DCOE Webers, VW/Holinger gearbox, Tomkinson alloy wheels and near new Dunlop radial slicks. Car was fully refurbished by Ken Graham (chassis) and Ken Gray (bodywork) in 2006. The car is very suitable for club and hillclimbs and GEAR but has had little use in recent years. Asking price is $17,500 ono and it comes with some spares including wheels. Contact Jim Templeton by email at [email protected] or 0408 725 743
1980 TIGA SC-80 SPORTS 2000
Keith Carling offers his front running Tiga SC-80 Sports 2000. The car has just
been rebuilt and is one of the most competitive cars in the Sports 2000 category.
The package comes with 12 wheels, near new wets, 20+ gear ratios &
numerous spares. Fiberglass body moulds & a custom built fully enclosed trailer
also included.
This is a turnkey package to go racing.
Please ring Keith Carling on 0438 881 208 or [email protected]
1981 TIGA SPORTS 2000
It wasn’t in great condition when I bought it so in 2010 I had Peter Brennan fix up the
problems including some running gear issues, brakes etc.
Peter assured me at the time it was ready to race. The body panels are all there but need
some TLC. That said, you could probably get it track ready in a weekend. It does not
have COD but I have documentation that should be enough to get that process under
way.
My asking price is $34,000.00 negotiable. This is a lot less than it has cost me but I am
interested in a sale sooner rather than later. Located Phillip Island.
