Sis­ters up­holden fam­ily tra­di­tion

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - CHRISTIE AN­DER­SON

ALARAH Wil­liamson is only 17 months old but she al­ready has a Holden mer­chan­dise col­lec­tion that would be the envy of many race­go­ers.

Alarah and her big sis­ter Aliye were among hun­dreds of rac­ing fans who splashed some cash at mer­chan­dise al­ley.

For the Wil­liamsons it was a fam­ily af­fair, with mum and dad tag­ging along to be decked out in the gear of their favourite driver, Craig Lown­des. Mum Emine Wil­liamson said the fam­ily’s mer­chan­dise bill had to­talled about $ 250, in­clud­ing buy­ing the small­est Tshirt they could find for lit­tle Alarah.

“For now Lownd­sey is her favourite driver so we got her a Holden T- shirt,” Mrs Wil­liamson said.

“I grew up with my dad be­ing a Ford sup­porter so I was the black sheep of the fam­ily.

“She might do the same and have a dif­fer­ent opin­ion when she gets a bit older.”
