Article Date: 10 September 2013
This Sunday’s brand new GM Mania event at Willowbank Raceway (15 September 2013) signals the beginning of a new approach by the facility’s management.
Willowbank Raceway President Tony Wedlock said the event – which celebrates all things General Motors through drag racing, judged show and shine events, dyno competitions, club and manufacturer displays and more – is part of the Management Committee’s commitment to delivering “something different” for motoring enthusiasts.
“This Sunday’s GM Mania event is certainly shaping up to be a great day out for all the family,” said Wedlock.
“I am pleased to report that GM Mania is not ‘just’ a new event for Willowbank Raceway.
“In actual fact, it signals the beginning of a new approach by the Raceway and its Board to offer something different from Queensland’s premier drag racing facility to a wider group of motoring enthusiasts.
“Combining an on-track element with a wide range of off-track activities, the brand new GM Mania is just a sign of things to come next year as the Management Committee continues its work of the past few months to inject some exciting new ideas into our soon to be released 2014 event calendar.”
