The Baskerville Foundation would like to acknowledge the generosity of the Hobart Sporting Car Club Inc for undertaking the refurbishment of the Pedestrian Bridge at a cost of just over $75,000.00. With the track resurfacing happening just a few months later in December 2016, the Baskerville Foundation could not have completed the pedestrian bridge prior to the Baskerville Historics as required without this support.


The Baskerville Foundation would like to acknowledge the efforts of the various clubs and individuals that have contributed to running of the Baskerville Historics since its inception in 2010. As the main fundraiser for the Baskerville Foundation since 2014, the refurbishments that have been completed to date at Baskerville would not have happened without the funds raised from this Annual Race Meeting. The Foundation is indebted to the people, clubs and organisations that make this Race Meeting possible.
