February means it’s time for the Classic Speed Fest. Invercargill’s portion of the Southern Festival of Speed. An annual event that goes through Christchurch, Timaru, Invercargill and Dunedin. Though in recent years the Dunedin section has been somewhat missed out. They don’t have a track, there’s a street circuit that gets laid out and.. as with most things, the few whingers ruin it for the on weekend of the year that it happens. There’s also a Hill-climb in the Dunedin segment, but I believe at least last year that road was being re-done.
To give a taste of the Classic Speed Festival, here’s a few snaps of cars from some previous years events.
