Australia’s longest-running and most popular all-historic motorsport event, Historic Winton, will be held on 28th and 29th May 2022 at Winton Motor Raceway, near Benalla.

Organiser and President of the Austin 7 Club, Len Kerwood said that the Austin 7 Club was thrilled to be holding this iconic race meet again and according to COVID requirements.

“This year, it is a Winton Motor Raceway policy that proof of vaccination (or exemption) is shown at the gate on entry,” he said.

The 45th Historic Winton reintroduces official displays and organisers invite spectators to bring their historic cars, bikes, trucks, buses, caravans and other vehicles for a massive car park display.

Spectators will get to see more than 40 historic car, motorcycle and sidecar races and the traditional Sunday Parade Lap of selected display vehicles.

50 Years

The second big news for this year’s event is that it is the 50th year that the Austin 7 Club has been holding historic motorsport events at Winton Motor Raceway.

“Prior to Historic Winton, the Club ran sprints and time trial events at the venue,” he said. “These lead to the bigger Historic Winton event being created, after competitors expressed a keen interest.”

“Historic Winton has been renowned for a special camaraderie for decades, with many ongoing interstate friendships made at the track,” Len said.

It is one of the largest sporting events in rural Victoria and is unique for its great views of the entire track.
