Willowbank to host multiple events
AFTER more than 35,000 race fans packed into Willowbank Raceway over the Queen's Birthday weekend, the post- Winternationals focus turns to a host of other events.
Across the next six weeks alone, the venue will host 10 test 'n' tune events, a round each of the Street Series (July 4) and the Queensland Drag Racing Champion- nships (on July 11) plus the specialist All Bike Day (July 5), All Ford Day (July 15) and Mopar Sunday (July 26).
"With more than 35,000 race fans coming through the gates across the Fuchs Winternationals weekend, it has been an exceptionally busy time here at the Raceway, but we certainly won't be sitting back and taking it easy now that it is run and won for another year," said Willowbank Raceway CEO Tony Manson.
Manson thanked his staff, volunteers, commercial partners and racers for all of their efforts at the Winternationals.
"They all worked so very hard to deliver an outstanding event,'' he said.
Manson said the support of spectators was appreciated.
"Without you the event wouldn't have had the same atmosphere and buzz - you are all as much a part of this event as we are, so thank you,'' he said.
Manson also sent the drag racing fraternity's best wishes to Phil Lamattina following his crash on Saturday. "We are very glad to hear that he will make a full recovery in time,'' Manson said.
