COME AND WISH WILLOWBANK A HAPPY 25TH BIRTHDAY

Article Date: 8 September 2010

In 2010 Willowbank Raceway, Queensland’s premier drag racing facility, enjoys its 25th birthday - and on Sunday September 19 you can be a part of this important milestone.

Willowbank Raceway will open the gates for a relaxed, informal celebration of its beginnings and history on September 19, with static display vehicles, memorabilia and official presentations all set to be a part of the schedule.

Willowbank Raceway Managing Director Steve Bettes said the event was the perfect opportunity to celebrate the beginnings and history of the facility while looking to the future.

“From when the first plans were drawn to today’s racing, it has been a interesting and excitement filled journey for Willowbank Raceway,” said Bettes.

“Hosting year round drag racing and four ANDRA Pro Series events – including the largest drag racing event outside of the USA – each year is no small feat, and is testament to the staff, volunteers, officials, fans and racers that come here year after year.

“With our 25th birthday upon us, we thought what better way to celebrate than to open the gates for a special trip down memory lane with some of the vehicles that have competed here over the years on static display as well as plenty of memorabilia on show.

“For those that pre-purchase their tickets there will be a BBQ lunch on the day, and there will also be the canteen for food and drink purchase for those that wish to come along and have a look without booking ahead.

“I really hope everyone takes the opportunity to come on down to Willowbank on Sunday the 19th of September and have a look and a chat, we would be so happy to see you!”

The day will run from 9.00am to 4.00pm on September 19 and there will be two ticketing options available for those wishing to come along to the event.

The first sees you pre-purchase your ticket for $30 for adults and students and $20 for children under the age of 13, with your ticket including a BBQ lunch (from 11.30am) and official Willowbank Raceway goodie bag including 25th anniversary merchandise. Please visit www.willowbankraceway.com.au for how to purchase tickets.

Alternatively, you and your family can come along for free, with the track canteen available for purchase of food and drinks.
