It has been an interesting October for AUSCAR/NASCAR fans

The month kicked off with Stock Cars Australia announcing their 2018 plans which includes expansion to other states as they will be joining another AASA series, hopefully they will keep being chatty on Social Media and update their website to keep the interest going.

Calder Park Thunderdome Facebook page gave fans a treat by airing on Facebook Live a replay of the 1993 NASCAR race on the Gold Coast, the race featured commentary by Darrell Eastlake and Peter Brock and Brad Jones talked to them whilst driving.

Signed NASCAR pictures have been popping up on eBay with the below Kevin Schwantz photo being one of those offered and purchased, there is currently a Bob Jane signed picture of Terri Sawyer’s car on offer.

The #2 NASCAR has found itself a new home after spending some time in Boronia, the new owner is Zac Ohara who owns among other vehicles the #27 NASCAR that races in Stock Cars Australia.

Wikipedia has finally accepted that Jim Richards did not win an AUSCAR championship after several attempts of editing in that fact.

That was pretty much it for October.

Stock Cars Australia are currently receiving entries for their upcoming round at Winton with entries accepted in the following classes;

AUSCAR/ SPORTSMAN
GTA Stock car
Aus Truck
Stock car (Winston/Busch CUP)
TA2

This is the second round that AUSCAR and Sportsman racers have the option of participating and there is no doubt that if one or two AUSCAR’s compete it will get attention.

AUSCARs found at Winton

Wakefield Park AUSCARs found at Winton.

Several AUSCAR’s that were formerly at Wakefield Park have been found at Winton.

Photographs have shown that one car belonged to Darryl Speers and another appears to be one from Garry Rogers Motorsport.

With more than a half dozen AUSCAR’s there it is perhaps the largest collection of AUSCAR’s in the one spot since AUSCAR ended.

Condition of the cars appear to be a mixed bag with some of the cars missing spoilers though #8, #31 and #34 appear to be the pick of the bunch.

Fans are eager to find out the condition of these cars in the hopes of buying and restoring them to race condition.
