THE hugely successive Phillip Island Classic ‘Festival of Motorsport’ Historic event is set to go ahead in 2021.

However, for the moment, the event will be limited to competitors only.

The Victorian Historic Racing Register have confirmed that the 2021 event will be held on March 5-7 next year.

At this stage the event will be open to competitors only with updates to be provided on the basis of the easing of restrictions and government advice.

The Phillip Island Classic is the biggest Historic motorsport event in Australia.

This year’s event featured event patron Larry Perkins behind the wheel of his 2003 Castrol Commodore VY V8 Supercar and Greg Murphy taking the wheel of his 2003 Bathurst 24 Hour-winning Monaro.

The event was one of the last motorsport events held in Australia in early 2020 prior to the COVID-19 pandemic stopping on-track activity of all motorsport.

Enjoy some sights and sounds here from the 2020 Phillip Island Classic and a range of ex-V8 Supercars taking to the scenic circuit.
