Been busy - that thing called working for a living.
Yes, we will be having an event very close to the August opening in 1961, so hopefully there will be a special celebration.
Easter 2011 does clelbrate 30 years of All Historic meetings in Adelaide with the first of those being held at AIR. You are right in that the Austin 7 Club ran the Easter meetings for a long time and as was part of SA tadition included Vintage and PVT events (we still say we had Historic racing before anyone else - its just that we had kept on including these categories!) As Historic classes grew the numbers included at Easter AIR event gew. When the A7 club decided to no longer run the Easter meeting the HRR/SCC took it over as an all Historic event. Ray, you are right about Speed Week's being a big event. We are hoping to return to something like that this year with a Hillclimb on the Wednesday prior to Easter. I have found one of Dad's famous Hillclimb tours so that will be a socail event on the Tghursday, private practice Friday, Race Meeting Saturday and Sunday, observing ANZAC Day Monday morning with the dinner being held in the evening and then to take advantage of the national public holiday we will hold a sprint meeting at Tailem bend so that people can have a run on the way home.
As for those photos John, I will do my best and see what I can come up with. But I'm not sure who all the young people are in them any more
