Austin 7 Club President Len Kerwood, said that the inaugural N Class Touring Car 'Tin Top' Regularity event was such a big hit in 2023 that it’s on the program again in 2024. 

 

“The Tin Tops (touring cars from pre-1958 to 1972) will be among 400 odd cars and motorbikes competing at Historic Winton,” Mr Kerwood said. 

 

“Vehicles from the beginning of motoring to the mid-1980s will grace the track.

“The Sunday Parade is another favourite ‘best of’ event with participating vehicles chosen from anniversary and car park displays.

“Motoring enthusiasts arrive in their historic vehicles, turning the car parks into magnificent showcases.”

He said enthusiasts dream of cruising around Winton Motor Raceway in the Sunday Parade and although the club gets requests ahead of the event, the participants were on the day, with invitees receiving an invitation placed under the windscreen wiper early in the morning.

“Participants will be selected based on the number of vehicles in an anniversary group, rarity and presentation,” he said.
