Muscle Car Masters update 12/07

The Australian Muscle Car Masters is to be held at Sydney Motorsport Park on the new dates of October 29-30, 2016

On Sunday 30th October the Mini Car Club will present a display of minis at this year’s Muscle Car Masters event so as to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the mighty Cooper S winning Bathurst in1966.

The plans for this celebration will include:

  • 20 Morris Cooper S cars, which will be stickered to replicate the 1966 signage. These cars will take part in an on track parade and display area west of grandstand. (This signage on the cars is a similar request for the cars which will be present at this year’s Bathurst 1000 event).
  • Additional Cooper S’s and other minis over and above the 20 in the parade are invited to be displayed in the Pit Straight Car Club Coral (spectator area east of grandstand).
  • The Mini Car Club of NSW will be setting up a display in the Car Club Coral and at this stage there is no limit on numbers in Car Club Coral.
  • All cars must be pre-registered and cars and drivers will be admitted free of charge.

The ARDC has provided me with the registration forms for both the parade cars and Pit Straight Car Club cars so I am now collecting names of entrants.

Please advise me prior to 25th September if you intend to enter.

Once I have all of the entrants’ names I will complete the registration forms and return them to ARDC as one group before the 30th September closing date.

Entry passes and event information will be handed out to all entrants in early October.

If you would like to be involved in this event and bring your mini along then please contact Michael Benton 0411019112 or email to

This year’s event will also include a mini only race provided by the Group N Historic cars
