FLASHBACK: Competitors in the Touring Car class at the inaugural Wondai Sprints last year

January 18, 2017

Motors In Motion committee members are busy planning this year’s Wondai Sprints … and are looking for some volunteers to help.

This year’s Sprints are planned for June 10-11 and will be held on the same course as last year, in the Wondai Industrial Estate.

“We are looking for some volunteers from around the Wondai area to help us fabricate concrete barriers, and also to be involved with the running of the event in June as trainee track officials, and flag point marshalls,” event co-ordinator Kevin Krosch said.

“We need two to three local volunteers to assist in the setting up, pouring of concrete, and removal of the set concrete from steel moulds between now and our June event.

“Most of the heavy work is done with a forklift and concrete truck.

“A few hours during a week day would be greatly appreciated.

“Last year we transported 150 barriers from Oakey, nearly 20 semi-trailer loads, at a massive cost.

“This year we would like to have the majority of the concrete barriers formed in Wondai.  Once these barriers are formed, the money saved can be spread around not-for-profit groups in this area.”

Kevin said the organisers were also seeking  interested volunteers to be trained by the Confederation of Motor Sport (CAMS) as track officials and flag point marshalls.

“At last year’s event we had to borrow flaggies and officials from many other clubs in other areas.

“Once a basic two-hour introduction course is carried out, then the volunteers can be trackside on events all over Australia, including the V8 Supercars.

“Males or females are all accepted,  and it is a great way to be right with the action at street sprints , hillclimbs, V8s, and all events run by CAMS.

“Trainee marshalls could be from anywhere in the South Burnett area.”
