Exciting racing predicted for Group N round this weekend - Brian Boyd

The next round of the PAYCE Historic Touring Cars Association NSW (Group N) is being held this coming weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park as part of the Sydney Retro Speedfest and has attracted a big field across Nb and Nc classes.

A total of 28 cars, comprising 22 from the Nc class and six from Nb, are entered for the two-day event.


There's Likely to be Plenty of Exciting Duels Over the Two Days – Brian Boyd.

PAYCE's Managing Director, Brian Boyd said the championship was shaping up to be one of the best for years.

"PAYCE is very pleased to be the naming sponsor the 2016 championship series of Group N and we wish all drivers a safe and enjoyable weekend of racing," Brian Boyd said.

"It's good to see strong fields in the category and the drivers love the Eastern Creek circuit, so there's likely to be plenty of exciting duels over the two days.

"The last meeting at Wakefield Park was full of good hard racing so we can expect to see similar close racing this weekend," enthused Brian Boyd.

"The category is a fans' favourite and the drivers and their teams go to great lengths in preparing their cars and putting on a good show.

The Group N Starters for the Sydney Retro Speedfest 2016

Heading the Group Nc starters will be last round winner, Brad Tilley in his Ford Mustang. Tilley currently tops the leaderboard, followed closely by Wayne Rogerson in his Mazda RX2 and Cameron Worner in his Ford Mustang.

Group Nb will see Michael Rose out to repeat his great overall win at the last round at Wakefield Park.

Michael presently sits in third place on the Nc leaderboard but on his current form could well move up closer to the lead after the weekend's racing.

Group N an Important Part of Australian Motorsport Heritage – Brian Boyd

"Group N continues to build in appeal as an important part of Australian motorsport heritage and it's a great opportunity for fans of all ages to see the variety of cars that contested touring car racing back in the '90s," Mr Boyd said.

"It's a wonderful sight to see the likes of Mini Coopers battling it out with Ford Mustangs, for example." continued Brian Boyd.
