Classic Aussie car lovers rejoice! The HQ Holdens have been called on as a Race Tasmania support category. As far as support categories go, it’s hard to go past an event that brings the grunt and power of Holden from the golden era of racing to a world class track like Symmons Plains. These HQ Holdens adhere to strict regulations that ensure that maintenance and modifications to the 3.3litre 6 cylinder 3 speed manual engines are kept to a minimum.
