Race driver revved up about new mo­tor sport event

Tweed Daily News - - SPORT -

TWEED race driver Bren­dan Strong is ex­cited about the po­ten­tial of the event.

“I per­son­ally be­lieve that Mus­cle@mur­willum­bah will be a great event for the Tweed/north­ern Rivers,” Strong said.

“The event held in the in­dus­trial es­tate will be a great ex­am­ple for the lo­cal kids, youth and car en­thu­si­asts as it will pro­mote the im­por­tance of road safety and ed­u­cate peo­ple that there are con­trolled en­vi­ron­ments to give their cars a run, not on the lo­cal streets,” he said

Strong, who grew up in the shire, has been heav­ily in­volved in motorsport, start­ing in go karts, pro­gress­ing cur­rently to a na­tional level in the Super 3 Su­per­car se­ries.

He cur­rently races the ex Rick Kelly, Jack Daniels Com­modore and will be next seen in the Super 2/3 event, sup­port­ing the su­per­cars in Win­ton next month.

“M@M will give the com­mu­nity an in­sight into the nu­mer­ous ca­reers that are avail­able in motorsport such as motorsport,” he said.

“It will be great to see ev­ery­one hav­ing some safe en­joy­able fun, and check­ing out the vast amount of cars in the com­mu­nity.”
