The 2012 Winton Festival of Speed, also known as the "Long Track Historic" to separate it from the successful A7CC All Historic Winton that uses the short track configuration, was held over the weekend.

Some good racing, some great cars some nasty crashes including a massive Formula Vee rollover at turn 7 on Saturday.

Sonic was up there taking photo's and here's a couple from his Saturday snapping that he posted on Facebook.









Suffice to say the only serious injuries all weekend where to a few racers bank balances thankfully.

Nope but certainly marked it

All the safety gear did their job and being an old Vee it'll be racing again very soon as will the driver who was released from Wang hospital that evening

and Sundays photos will be appearing when

Please tell me you have the awesome blowup from a Porsche I think it was. Amazing, have never seen so much smoke in my life.

Sonic, were you wearing a Bathurst t shirt on Saturday?

I wish, I've had three weekends of motorsport (Winton Shannons, Winton FoS & Moree MX Nationals) where the Safety/Medical crews have been absolutely flogged work wise.

You've got to remember that if I'm busy people are crashing or injuring themselves which no one wants
