Baskerville Raceway - 50 Years of Motorsport

The Hobart Sporting Car Club celebrated Baskerville’s 50th anniversary in style with a 2 day race meeting for Cars and Bikes on the 1st and 2nd of March 2008.

The 1st round of the Tasmanian Super Series for 2008 was held for Formula Vee, Sports Sedan, HQ Holden, Historic Touring Cars, Improved Production and Targa Class. As part of the 50th celebrations events were held for Historic Regularity and also Modern and Historic Bikes. Bike racing had been held in conjunction with the first race meeting and for many years after that but regulation changes meant a 2+4 meeting had not been seen for approximately 20 years. With 101 cars and 20 bikes some close racing was held over the 2 days of celebrations.

A fine display of old race cars was on hand with some of them turning in some spirited laps, while others sat statically, some in an unfinished part of restoration others to nice to be thrashing around a race track these days.
