The HQ Holdens were out in force at Round 2 of the Victorian State Circuit Racing Championship, VSCRC at Sandown International Raceway on 18-19 May 2013.
The HQs are a particular favourite here at Classic Car Photography – possibly because in our youth we owned a 253 V8 HQ panel van.
From a historic/classic racing perspective the HQ Holdens is a great series for spectators and I am sure this is true for the drivers also.
