Last weekend saw the 60th anniversary of the South Pacific Championships at Gnoo Blas in January 1956.
Reg Hunt, who won the race, set a lap record of 2m 17s or 98.7mph (157.9kmh) and went through the flying quarter at 160mph (256kmh) in his Maserati, was a guest at the show.
The Gnoo Blas Classic Car Club in Orange is keeping alive the history of the former Gnoo Blas road racing circuit which, in its short eight-year span, chalked up a number of significant Australian firsts.
Included in these in 1955 was the first FIA sanctioned international race meeting in Australia and in 1960 the first Australian Touring Car Championship, now the V8 series. Gnoo Blas also had the first 100mph lap in Australia.
The annual car show in Sir Jack Brabham Park in the centre of the old track is an ideal event for car club members to show off their vehicles to the public and enjoy a great weekend away.
Bathurst City Life photographer, Zenio Lapka was on hand to capture a few of the images.
