Morgan Park annual historic event draws true believers to the hilltop

 

Historic Queensland

The warmth of a small town welcome helped ease the chill of a Darling Downs highland morning at Morgan Park as competitors in the 2016 National Historic broke the ice off windscreens in preparation for the first race of the morning. The two-day event saw blue skies and a diverse entry list with racers travelling from all eastern states as well as from New Zealand to the circuit near Warwick in Queensland for a competitive event with fantastic camaraderie.

Brisbane-based Craig Allan took the Jack Lacey Trophy in the feature race of the weekend in his 1972 Torana GTR XU-1 with Bill Attard in a 1972 Mazda RX-2 second and Kevin Heffernan bringing his battered 1969 Holden Monaro GTS 350 home in third. The regularity trials proved to be popular, with 50 entrants keen to test themselves and their cars in a category designed to offer maximum fun on track for a minimal outlay with a diverse grid spanning more than 60 years of metal from 1930s Austin to 1990s Nissans all on track together. In the Mini Celebration Trophy, Graham Russell lifted the title in his 1968 Morris Cooper S from Adam Duce in a Leyland Clubman GT and Chris Collett in his Cooper S. In the QLD Tourist Trophy, Kiwi Peter Boel in his 1968 Flintstone-Lotus 23B had the locals measure with Ron Hay in his 1980 Lola T590 Sports 2000 and Stan Adler in a 1975 Porsche 911 standing on the lower steps. The HRCC’s own trophy race was taken by David Kent piloting a 1975 Chevron B29 followed by Robert Foster in a 1975 March 75B and Barry Wise in his Reynard FF2000. Bill Norman took the Chas Whatmore Trophy home in his 1962 Lynx Formula Junior from Noel Bryen’s 1963 Rennmax BN1 F/J and Don Thallon in his MRC 22 Ford F/J.
