'HISTORIC SANDOWN 7th - 9th November 2014 – A Tribute to Sir Jack Brabham'
This year The Victorian Historic Racing Register presents a very special event, commemorating the amazing career and life of multiple world champion Sir Jack Brabham AO OBE. Featuring a wonderful display of some of Sir Jack’s finest examples of racecars, this year’s Historic Sandown will be one not to be missed. Racing on track will see sports and touring cars from yesteryear in an action packed three-day carnival of motor sport.
Making the ground shake again will be the thundering Formula 5000s. These are the 5-litre open wheelers that ran as Australia & NZ’s top national formula during the 1970s and featured in those epic battles known as the Tasman Series.
Almost 40 races and regularity runs will be conducted over the weekend of November 7-9, catering for a wide cross-section of Historic racing, sports and touring cars from the 1920s to the ‘nineties.
Adding to the spectacle will be displays of one-make club cars involving more than 300 desirable vehicles. Their proud owners will have them on show at the concourse alongside the main grandstand and at Red Hill viewing mound on the Dandenong Road end of the circuit for the public to enjoy.
Also supporting the event will be Trade stands, food outlets and off-track displays as an added bonus, with unrestricted paddock access, mixing with the cars and drivers makes Historic racing a truly memorable experience.

Sandown is one of the very few permanent circuits left anywhere in the world, located right in the middle of a metropolitan city. Due to its close proximity to local residents, Sandown is restricted to running five major Motorsport weekends. Currently these include a V8 Supercars Sandown 500 event (mid September), Historic Sandown (early November), State Race Series rounds (May & July), and Shannons Nationals (Sept).
