This report is on the Holden Last Lap event held at Winton Raceway.
The Holden Last Lap ( Holdens Only ) event was held at Winton Raceway on Saturday the 24th of April. This was the third attempt to hold this event, the first was planned for March last year, but Covid stuffed that, then the organisers tried to run it in January this year but Covid crowd number restrictions stopped that, so finally they were able to run it on the 24th of April, but had to combine it with a Winton club day race meeting.
Although there was not a great deal of advertising done to promote the event the organisers were very happy with the number of cars and spectators that turned up.
In all there were just on 300 cars entered for the event, entries had to be done online so entries were slow at the start, but as word got around entries increased fairly quickly according to one of the organisers I spoke to. Overall they were very pleased with the numbers of cars and spectators and are starting to look at running the event again next year as a stand alone event.
I had entered my FE Holden and my fathers VL Commodore, which my son in law drove, it's now got him interested in cars again, probably not what my daughter was hoping would happen!!.
Unfortunately there were not a great deal of 50's and 60's era cars entered, a few FX & FJ's, my FE was the only one there, a couple of FB & EK's, EJ's and only 3 EH's. There were heaps of 70's & 80's era cars, then a lot of the late model Commodores.
During the day there were two time slots where they allowed the entered cars to cruise around the track, but this became a crawl with the amount of cars on the track. For a first time event I thought it was a good event and hopefully next year it will be bigger and better.
Here are some photos from the day.
