V8 Super Car Racing

The Historic Commercial Vehicle Club (H.C.V.C.) are holding their display day at Sandown on Sunday, November 22nd, 2009 from 9.00am. To promote this event, they were asked to put on a display at the V8 Supercar Racing over the weekend. We had six vehicles displayed in all, on the Saturday, plus the H.C.V.C trailer. I have never been to car races before and the last time John went was in 1956 when Stirling Moss won the Grand Prix at Albert Park, so you can see by that we are obviously not car race enthusiasts, but it was a fun day. I don't actually know who won the Race on the day, but I can tell you that the Formula 4 race they held was won by a fifteen year old and the oldest drive in that race was only 21.

Pictured above is the 1950s International owned by Bill and Ray O'Halloran and the H.C.V.C. display tent. Pictured below is David Horne's 1934 WS British Bedford, a familar sight on the Historic Truck display scene.

Pictured above is "Red Terror" a 1955 AR162 International, owned by Bruce and Helen Paroissien and next to it another O'Halloran family vehicle, a 1950s Nissan. Below is Russell Marshall's 1941 Ford and our Volvo.
