Racers from around Australia will gather at Morgan Park for the two events, which features 26 races, eight regularity trials.

This group also includes the Holden and Ford battle with Commodores, Falcons and Sierras, plus Mazda RX7, Supra, Starion and Volvo Turbo.

The always popular Group N Historic Touring Cars have a huge 40 car field and promise to turn on some exciting racing, with Toranas and Monaros against Falcons and Mustangs, Escorts and Cortinas against Minis and BMWs, Capris against Mazda Rotary's- there will be something for everyone.
