Entries for the 2012 Tasman Revival are now open and we can’t wait to head out to the track for some historic racing with you all!

We will be using Motor Event Entry as the primary mode of entry for the 2012 Tasman Revival. It is an online entry system developed by a regular competitor at historic events in order to solve a lot of the difficulty and time-consuming repetition involved in entering historic racing events in the past.

If you have an existing Motor Event Entry account, you are just one simple step away from entering the 2012 Tasman Revival. Click this link to head directly to the 2012 Tasman Revival entry page on Motor Event Entry, and we’ll see you at Sydney Motor Sport Park!

Motor Event Entry is secure, password protected, free and easy to use, and has been successfully used by the HSRCA for its historic racing events since the 2011 Autumn historics, along with several of our brother and sister clubs around the country.

Its key benefit is that you need only enter your personal details, car information and team ONCE, and then these details are made available to you each time you enter a new event.

You can update your information easily and quickly whenever necessary, and please do, as it helps us greatly in staying in touch and putting together future events.

If you would like step-by-step instructions on how to create your account, please click this link, and if you would like to watch someone walk through the process and provide instruction, click the following links to videos provided by the Motor Event Entry team:
