Some more historic photos that might be of interest. They show an Austin Seven with a very basic gas producer. Later the car was passed to Jack as a young lad, 'fixed up' and painted. Click here

Observed Section Trials

Observed Section Trials (Mud Trials or Sporting Trials in other parts of the world) are an integral part of the Austin 7 Club. Austin 7s are no longer driven in OST competition, except for the odd exhibition run, and trials cars are now highly specialised cars, built to a specific formula & utilising modern components. The most famous trial, originally named The Park Orchards Trial because of its location in the Melbourne outer suburb of Park Orchards (now covered in houses) has been relocated and named the John Pryce Memorial Trial, in honour of the renowned Club member who introduced the sport to Australia in 1950.

Around 12 trials are held annually. Entry fees are very cheap, admittance to trials is always free and new members are always welcome. Passengers are mandatory and are often in need. Have a look at our Trials E-Cards on this site.

We are always pleased to help anyone wanting to build a trials car. Give anyone on the trials committee a call, and see my stuff on trials cars here.

Historic Winton

Historic Winton is Australia's premier Historic Racing event. Always held on the last full weekend in May.

 Historic Winton is run by the Austin 7 Club but is unique in that it also runs motorcycles. Around 250 Historic racing cars and with the assistance of Historic Motorcycle Racing Association Victoria, up to 100 bikes, including sidecars compete at this event. More than 60 events are held over the two days. A growing part of the meeting is the ever expanding Historic Vehicle Display of interesting cars from all eras including a number of invited rare cars and motorbikes.

A must see on the Australian Historic Racing & Motor Sport calendar. Competitors Click Here for an entry form.

Historic Winton is held at Winton Motor Raceway, around 200 km North-East of Melbourne on the old Hume Highway - about 10k North of Benalla & 25k south of Wangaratta. The circuit is located in a picturesque part of country Victoria, and is unique in that all parts of the circuit can be seen from any vantage point.

Accommodation at Winton is available at many places in the surrounding district but it pays to book ahead as it is a very popular event.

This site is expanding all the time, so please come back soon. In the meantime send someone one of our Historic Racing E-Cards, (or postcards) send us one if you like, We'd like to think somebody knows about us. By the way, although the event is often referred to as Winton Historics, A7 Winton, Austin 7 Winton etc, the true name is in fact Historic Winton.
