This Classic and Historic Motor Race Meeting is an annual invitation event for people who are currently involved in Historic and Classic car racing. The meeting is solely organised by The Classic Motor Racing Club of New Zealand Race Committee and is run on the day(s) by the South Canterbury Car Club team.
Due to Covid restrictions there are no spectators allowed this year, but there may be opportunities for CMRC Members to help out at the track- contact Paul Coghill (see contacts) for details.
The South Canterbury Hydraulics Southern Classic is part of the Southern Festival and it is organised by members of the three major racing clubs in the South Island – The Canterbury Car Club, The Classic Motor Racing Club of New Zealand and the Southland Sports Car Club Inc. Each Club arranges its own program of events and hospitality for competitors. These events are promoted by the organisers to encourage spectator attendance.
The aim of the series is for all participants to have entertaining racing where the focus is on competing rather than winning trophies. Because the fields are larger, recent grid race experience is essential. Because of the number of events in the series, a high level of vehicle preparation is required.
Entry Fee is $325 for CMRC members and $350 for non-members. (Annual CMRC membership is $50- the membership form is under Contacts above).
