Once again the meeting is being organized by the MG Car Club of Tasmania. Baskerville Race Circuit is located only 20 minutes from Hobart . Having Celebrated its 50th Anniversary in February 2008 it is the oldest continuously operating circuit in Australia. Being a tight 7-Turn 2 klm circuit designed in the fifties for cars of the era it is ideally suited to classic motor sport.


Races will be open to all 5th Category log booked vehicles except Group A & C Touring Cars. Cars complying with Groups J,L,N, and S are eligible for Regularity. Other cars may be included at the discretion of the Organizers and the local historic commissioner. There will also be MG Only races open to any log booked MG racing car.


Knowing that traveling to Tasmania is an additional cost we have endeavored to keep entry fees to a minimum.

Race Entries TBA (Includes 4 Entry Passes + Friday Practice)

Regularity TBA (Includes 4 Entry Passes + Friday Practice)

A Little bit about Hobart

Hobart, Tasmania’s harbourside capital city, is set on the shores of the River Derwent, with the blue bulk of Mt Wellington as a backdrop.

Hobart is a city of sails and sandstone, festivals and flavours – colourful spinnakers on the harbour, fine old 19th century warehouses along Salamanca Place, the fun and music of the waterfront Summer Festival and excellent restaurants highlighting Tasmania’s fine fresh produce.

From Hobart, it’s an easy day tour to the wineries of the Southern Wine Route, to tall forests and national parks or to the nation’s most significant historic site, Port Arthur.
