Random # 156: 48-215 ("FX") Holden Race Car


The crew of this fabulous 48-215 Holden sedan were down from Victoria to race at this weekend's Baskerville Historics meeting (www.motorsportstas.com.au/event/baskerville-historics).  According to the owner, they were part of a large contingent of early model Holdens that would be battling it out on the track this weekend.


The Historics is an annual event put on by the Hobart Sporting Car Club at the home of southern Tasmanian motorsport, the Baskerville Raceway, at Old Beach, approximately twenty minutes' drive north-east of the capital city of Hobart.  This year's meeting is being held from Friday the 22nd to Sunday the 24th of September.  It's a massive get together of some of the best historic race cars from Tasmania and around Australia, featuring examples from manufacturers from all around the world.









Best of luck to all competitors and thanks to the crew of the magnificent beast featured here.  Happy racing!
