The HK HT HG Holden Club of NSW Inc. is proud to announce the 3rd HK HT HG Holden Nationals will be hosted at Mount Panorama, Bathurst from
Friday 29th – Sunday 31st October, 2021.
The 2020 event was postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions so we will be belatedly celebrating 50 years of the HG Holden and 50 years since Holden’s historic ATCC win. Norm Beechey’s win in his HT Monaro was the first time the championship was won by an Australian manufactured car.
The HK HT HG Holden Nationals committee will have a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place, and all participants are required to check-in and abide by NSW government regulations.
QR Codes will be available at Mt Panorama, and entrants will be required to check in at other venues using that venue’s QR Code.
Entrants and their buddies are asked to familiarise themselves with and abide by the NSW COVID-19 public health orders that are in place at the time of the event, and to check the NSW government website for details beforehand.
