A host of 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s machines to help celebrate Retro Round this weekend in Melbourne …

A WIDE range of racing cars covering the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s will form part of the celebration of this weekend’s Retro Round at the Wilson Security Sandown 500 – and there’s some cool cars among the display that the V8 Sleuth team has put together for Supercars.
