Shannons Historic Demonstration

The Shannons Historic Demonstration will be a salute to the classic historic race cars that have raced in an Australian Grand Prix for over 90 years. After 1928 it has been 90 years since the first recognised Australian Grand Prix, with over the years a mixture of Aussie specials, handicapped voiturettes and sophisticated rear engined monocoques and sleek production based sports cars.

A sensational collection of vehicles from overseas and all around Australia will be on hand and sure to offer a rare opportunity to be seen on track and up close!

Cars from manufacturers such as Scarab, Lister, Alta, Cooper Bristol, Ferrari, ERA, Connought and Lotus including 12 cars imported from overseas will be featured and on display in Legends Lane for all four days of the event.
