Scheduled for the weekend of December 7 and 8, The Bend Classic will host several categories for “for historic and performance oriented vehicles that typically don’t compete on a regular basis.”

The Bend’s managing director Sam Shahin says he wants to see the continued growth of motorsport enthusiasm in South Australia.
“The AMF has been fantastic for motorsport fans in SA and around the country and it would be a shame to see some of the activities fall away.”
“It’s been humbling to hear encouragement and calls of support from so many people, who have asked how The Bend Motorsport Park can play a role.
“As a result we are opening Registrations of Interest for drivers and categories who want to participate in The Bend Classic, a sprint event at The Bend.”

“There will be thousands of people travelling from interstate and locals enjoying the continuing aspects of the festival like the Shannons Adelaide Rally, and Street Parties.
“They can come by and stay at the park on their way to Adelaide or come up for the day to spectate or participate in the sprint.
“We hope the event will be supported and if we can play a role we will relish that opportunity.”
Registrations of Interest can be submitted via an online form.
