Welcome to the Historic Racing Club Inc.

visit our new website  www.hrcevents.co.nz

We are a club actively encouraging races for all Historic Racing cars. We also want to encourage more high profile Classic Meetings and will actively seek entries from Australia, USA, and UK. HRC will also arrange for NZ cars to travel overseas to meetings . Our largest and most successfull meeting is the NZ Festival Motor Racing   The policy of the HRC is to work closely with other car clubs on a ongoing basis to encourage a united Historic movement throughout New Zealand. We also work very closely with Auckland Car Club and NZIGP to make sure the Upper North Island get the best motor racing possible

Our aims are to preserve and promote the sporting fellowship of drivers and owners of single seater, sports racing cars and production Sports & GT cars modified with period modifications. The HRC Inc is affiliated to Motorsport New Zealand Inc and abides by their rules and those of the Federation International de l'Automobile.

Many of us have racing cars that we want to "exercise" more often than at present and we want to race with Historic and Classic cars from the 1977 era. There will strict adherance to Schudule K Regulations. Historic Single Seaters and Sports Racing Cars will keep to the Period Classifications of cars. Formula 5000's, Formula Pacifics and Sports Racing cars will be kept separate from the earlier, smaller engined single seaters.

HRC also promotes "Mainstream motor race meetings "  These meetings are branded New Zealand Racing Drivers Club Meetings
