PIARC’s (Phillip Island Auto Racing Club) traditional Island Magic race meeting at the end of this month celebrates 25 years as a consecutive and fitting conclusion to another great year of activity for the club at the Island Circuit.
With entries building in most categories, Island Magic Silver 2015 will stick with PIARC’s tried and true formula of non-stop racing with all the traditional races and categories including the 11th consecutive year for the CUE 1 Hour Victorian Tourist Trophy.
This year will again see a field of up to50 of the exotic and well known traditional Sports Cars competing for this well respected Trophy and also the Allan Simonsen Pole position award inaugurated by his friend and co-driver Ted Huglin.
Simonsen prior to his tragic death at Le Mans a couple of years ago was a three time winner at Island Magic in this CUE Event.
After last year’s massive Formula Vee Nationals with a capacity 58 car field producing the race of the year, the category has a benchmark that will be hard to beat. The other open wheel category at this meeting is Formula Ford which will feature both Formula Ford 1600 and Formula Ford and will be a season high for the category, competing for the highly coveted Phillip Island Formula Ford Trophy.
