Adelaide Motorsport Festival – Display your car – get close to the action!


This is a great opportunity to get your car out and display it in some great company, unless of course you are entered!

Click on the link below to fill out the online entry form, and follow the step by step instructions.

THE DEADLINE FOR ENTRY IS APRIL 4!!sunday-display/c9lc

Cost is $35, but with that you get a pass into the event, a commemorative plaque, and a designated parking area – you will be front and centre for what promises to be a great event to be held where some of the great Adelaide F1 moments took place. Don’t miss this one!

Adelaide Motorsport Festival – Adelaide’s answer to Goodwood??

Perhaps not, but near enough is good enough.

Get along to this event and support those who are trying to revive the historic motorsport life of Adelaide!

After having lost the F1, Classic Adelaide, and with no Lobethal GP in sight, the Adelaide Motorsport Festival represents an opportunity for Adelaide to show off again!

If you have a spare Supermarine Spitfire or Hawker Hurricane in the back shed somewhere, give it a wash and consider doing a fly past on the day….or maybe like me you will just run around with your arms outstretched making noises like one.

The Late Judy and John Bowering’s Sprite

From David Low



Seen at the MSCA Club presentation picnic at Bethany was the Late Judy and John Bowering’s Sprite. Dean King is now the owner, and has tidied up the car which has not been seen for several years . Note the reversed steering mounted wheel and the lockable hand brake, features John added to the car.
Older members of the Club will remember this car and it will always be known as Judy and John’s Sprite
