The first weekend in April was a whole lot of fun at the first ever Longford Revival Festival in northern Tasmania. Longford was once the home to the Australian Grand Prix with a fantastic circuit featuring the Flying Mile and the Viaduct sections, as well as the famous Pub Corner, a 90º right-hander past the local watering hole. All the great names raced there in the ’50s and ’60s – Jack Brabham, Jackie Stewart, Jim Clark, Bruce McLaren, Stirling Moss, Graham Hill, Lex Davison and more – but sadly the track can not be reconstructed, due to a highway being built over a section near the Viaduct, and a number of bridges that no longer exist.
The Longford Revival was a big event indeed, with lots of fantastic cars on display including a fabulous selection of Porsches from the Porsche Museum in Germany. Another highlight was the running of cars and bikes down the Flying Mile. Great to see cars old and new at speed down this historic stretch of tarmac.
Of course KombiCam was there, doing the photo booth thing. People were encouraged to come in ’60s clothing in order to win $1000 worth of prizes, and here are some of the photos.
And the winners… congratulations! Enjoy your prize!
Oh, I got dressed up too, do you think this look suits me? Pity it is not my own hair.
